Posted in thread: First fly sparge, stuck. 5Gal. Igloo w/false bottom on 04-11-2010 at 05:44 AM
I've wondered about this. When I fly sparge at low rates I can't seem to get the grain temp to

being open th...
Posted in thread: How long for Hazelnut to mellow? on 03-05-2010 at 04:58 AM
I had this same problem with a Hazlenut chocolate porter I brewed a couple months ago. I only

though and bala...
