    Even though you have a place where the air temp may be constant, fermentation creates heat and,
    despite its relatively high specific heat, air is not dense enough to scavenge away that heat
    effectivel...

    You prime the batch with a sugar solution. Use a priming calculator to find out how much sugar
    to use given the desired carbonation and the residual CO2 already in the beer.

    I suggest serializing your brewing; rather than trying to get two batches' worth of cells from
    a single pack of yeast (brewing in parallel), just harvest from the first batch to pitch the
    next. You co...

    Old Ale, possibly. I don't know if 1450 can do the right ester profile.

    I'd save the Biscuit and Special B for a Dubbel or BDSA.

    Interesting mix of units in that recipe.What is the chalk meant to accomplish?
