    As the title of OP states-this is about Common Sense, it's not something that can be taught.
    There's also a basic primal thirst (gulp!) for knowledge. It's one thing to try to learn and

    I believe it is recommended to make a starter on any beer over 1.056. Before i got my equipment

    FWH does impact the IBUs, after all, the hops are left in there for the whole boil! I figure it

    How much of a difference will using 1056 make in this?Not totally sure. It shouldn't be too
    different, 1056 is pretty clean. I'm planning to ferment around 62, so it should bring out a
    bit more of the...

    I'm about to take my stab at this. LHBS only had 2 oz of Cascade's though. Still a bit of a
    noob, so I was hesitant to change things on the fly.I've heard so much about Simcoe, I thought
