  • Caught the bug in the summer of 2011...My "brewery" is called Pilgrim Abbey. I like to brew with anyone in the south shore of Mass, so drop me a line if you want to get together.

    interesting. Just rocked out a near 11% Belgian Strong Pale Ale with this and no issues. Finish

    How handy are you? T the water line under your kitchen sink for a suitable solution. I plan on
    doing this specifically for an immersion chiller when I finish my kitchen renovation.

    I pick up a single of it once a week since release. This year's is really well done, or at
    least I think so. I've probably had about 8-10 octoberfests from the US in the last month and

    Your calcium level is nearing the top end, I prefer under 100 but thats just me. As for the
    sulphate level, you don't need to be exact, 350, 360, close enough.Also, is this just mash

    I think it's mostly hop freshness. I brewed an extract beer and dry hopped it with 3 oz. When
    you poured a pint it literally smelled up the entire kitchen. Ever since then, two years ago, I
    want that ...

    Sam Adam's actually released a Harvest Saison this year in their fall twelve pack and although

    I do it out of laziness and time. I often do 90 minute boils, sometimes more. Its far easier to
    just toss in the bittering right off the bat and have time to do other stuff.No real/major
