Ha, so I recently brewed a Kölsch that was mostly pilsner, only boiled for 60 minutes and left
the lid on. So, uhhhh...I mean, I thought it tasted OK at bottling, but unless someone gave me
a sample a...

Interesting, because according to the product description for the French Saison, the high end

I only have room for one carboy in my converted chest freezer, and ambient temps in my
apartment are generally in the mid-high 80s at this time of year. I'd love to take advantage of
that, and brew so...

Brewed today, and if the hydrometer reading is correct, I got 91% efficiency. Is that even

Brewed this today, and even right after transferring to carboy and shaking the heck out of it,
