    I'd use enough summit at 60 to get you to 25 IBUs, then use your Amarillo, Centennial, and
    Summit (in proportional, not equal amounts) to get you another 15-20 IBUs at 15 mins. Blast it
    with the Amari...

    Is it ok? Sure. Is it necessary? No.Whether you include it or not will depend on your
    willingness to experiment or your overall philosophy on brewing. Good luck.

    Two things:1) Your recipe calls for a little over 20% crystal. That's an awful lot. I'd be
    thankful that you mashed at 150 instead of 154. The beer might have been too chewy at that
    temp.2) I have the...

    That really depends on everything else going into your recipe... you'd really have to post what
    you intend to make. A lot of factors go into whether or not a beer has foam. I'd recommend
    listening to ...

    Speaking of Arlington, the nasty storms knocked out power for a few hours last night. When I
    checked the fermenter this morning, the hefe was still fermenting strongly at 62. Phew...

    I'm thinking of adding a half pound of Demerara into a belgian golden strong to lighten the
    palette. This is in addition to a pound of 5L Candi Syrup. I plan to brew with 13lbs of
    Pils.Will the Demera...

    Ugh...I had the day off today so I thought I'd brew up a hefeweizen I've had in the lineup for
    a while. It's also my birthday so my lovely wife made me a nice breakfast and I was responding
    to texts a...

    Really simple question. I want to brew an American Brown Ale (surprisingly, my first about
    about 30 batches) and am "intervieiwing" hops and need some references. I think the
    earthy/spicy/slightly min...
