Posted in thread: 100% Peated Ale on 02-16-2015 at 02:45 PM
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

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 ...

@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...

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...
