I am not a regular bourbon drinker either. That being said, I do have a bottle of Four Roses in
my basement.Would this work?Never had it, so I have no idea.

Hmmm. Might have to make a few samples and try a couple diferent kinds of Bourbon then. I have
nearly a whole bottle of MM from my father in law since he didn't like it, he prefers some
other more exp...

Made this yesterday. I've been trying to "re-tune" my BIAB setup so I had to guess at what my
efficiency would be. Ended up at 65% so I had to boil a little longer, I did a 90 min boil and
hit 1.082 s...

I'm brewing a 2.5 gallon batch of oatmeal stout later today and in order to keep the PH where I

If you want to stay with dry yeast, use US-05. Works well at low temps and is clean like K97.

I'm skeptical as well. I too have made several hundred batches with zero yeast "washing" and
zero autolysis, despite the occasional batch that sits for several months in primary. I even
had one light ...

So, the brown ale never did get much better. I fed it to the snails and made way for an awesome
citra pale ale, so no complaints. I'll be washing the yeast from now on.Are you certain that
was the pro...

I know what you mean! I will actually be located in the Corvallis/Albany area. There are some
breweries there, and same story as with Eugene. I will make better beer... ok, well, the

Keep in mind that yeast will keep slowly fermenting even if refrigerated. That's why I don't
use jars. I use plastic tubs with snap on lids. That way, there's no danger of explosion if the
lid is too ...

Right? Hopefully the fad won't be over when I open. I like what the head brewer from Boneyard
said when a reporter asked him when the "craft beer thing" will be over. He said something to
the tone of....
