Sorry for the wait. We brought our water up mash temperatures with propane heat, same with the sparge water.

For Boiling, I'd say it was almost instantaneous that the water went to boil. we had a boil over immediately putting the hot rocks in the wort. The rocks kept the boil for probably 15 minutes before it got to were is wasn't really a rolling boil, then we pulled that batch of rocks out and put the second set of rocks in. These kept the boil going for I think the next 45 minutes if I recall correctly. I don't think we switch rocks again. we may have in the last 10 minutes though.

Smokey to the point of aquired taste. I read about a brewery that does this. Might have been Stan H's wheat book?

Check this out from a brewery called Boscos http://boscosbeer.com/nashville/menu.../alwaystap.htm

Their flaming stone is quite tasty. Not sure if this is what you are talking about but their beer is good. JT

The rocks give off a lot of earthy flavors (imagine that) but it also carmelizes the wort. I tested last years stein that was made with kolsch yeast and dry hopped with cascade leaf. The flavor of that beer was awesome. So thats what i did with my batch for this year. Its in secondary for another month. Then a few days for dry hops. Then into the keg!

Mine is still aging. Probably go another 2 weeks before I bottle it. Believe I used 1187 Ringwood Ale. I don't plan on dry-hopping though as I was wanting more of the malt flavor. Really looking forward to it though.

Barker, do you have any bottles left from last year to compare? Or did you keg it all?
