Whaddyaknow? I too have canned on my Maytag glasstop electric stove with an aluminum 20qt

Not that I have done this, but this recipe might be better off with split additions of dry hops
and for shorter contact time. 8oz dry hop is a lot for 5 gallons. When I made this beer I did

That is one tasty brew. To try and answer your question, in a way they might. The specialty
grains might have been added in the second recipe to replicate some of the sweetness/flavors

Posted in thread: need some help with a hoppy red!!! on 07-15-2013 at 10:02 PM
