Having had the brewer at a recent club meeting, the grain bill is different from what I
provided. The beer is made with "85-90% Golden Promise, premium English caramalt, some munich,

Posted in thread: Berliner-weisse - no-boil vs. pils malt? on 03-31-2015 at 01:36 PM
Of the two berliners I've made, I boiled maybe 20 minutes tops. Each had at least 50% pils.

I believe its at the point now that the amount of yeast in one package is a disservice to new
homebrewers and that to really get to know a yeast and get the best out of it requires more
than just a fi...

I apologize for the lack of specific detail, but I was able to bring 4 gallons of water to a
nice rolling boil on an Avantco 1800W using a non-magnetic "economy" 5 gallon kettle. The
