    Glad to hear you are giving it a try. I am trying a variation. Brewing it on the grain. We will
    see how close it comes to it's inspiration name sake (after a bit of that pesky water is
    removed, if you...

  • Posted in thread: Is it possible to have too high efficiency? on 01-13-2015 at 02:04 AM
    I believe I am talking brew house efficiency. Which encompasses mash efficiency, no? With what
    I gave, what can you calculate? Both what do you get and is it mash or brew house? I'm assuming
    later as ...

    Well, this was a nice thread to find. It's really nice to see others getting 'oddly' high
    efficiencies. I average 82-85%.It's frankly been annoying me for some years now as all I get is
    the 'you're ju...

    Has anyone used only maple syrup w/o honey?Nothing like responding to an old, possibly dead
    thread, but what the heck.Yes, I have a 100% pure acer aging right now. 3lbs/gallon. And I've
    split off a si...

    "So does the aroma compare to opening up a bottle of Laphroiag or similarly peaty
    scotch?"anyone?It seems to depend on how high the ppm's are for the initial malt and how big
    you make the ale. One mad...

    No, not a Guinness clone. I would add flaked barely :) But yes, a Dry Stout. And was going by
    the basic BJCP guidelines in regard to that. So Brown stout does not apply. Maybe I should have
    said to hi...

    I ran some numbers with brown malt and had to get make it over 50% brown to have the color to
    technically be a stout. Otherwise it was a porter or brown ale. What percentage did you use?I
    don't quite ...

  • Posted in thread: Simple Stout??? on 12-23-2014 at 01:16 PM
    @giraffe, that is the theory at least....except I recall reading some various head to head
    comparisons and very little correlation was found between mouthfeel, head retention and flaked
    barely. That i...

  • Posted in thread: Simple Stout??? on 12-22-2014 at 12:01 AM
    The short of this is I'm wondering if anyone has any first hand knowledge of a 2 ingredient
    stout. Namely pale malt and roast barley (and hops). The shortest grain bill I can seem to find
    also has fla...

    Unfortunately, in my experience even the residual really plays havoc with head retention. YMMV
