    I'd leave out the sugar as well. Personally I don't see the point of adding sugar over .4%
    alcohol. When you have a beer that alcoholic the yeast are under stress as it is, giving them
    corn sugar afte...

    Funny because I think Two Hearted label is great while Stone and DFH are pretty terrible. All
    of Bell's labels are great to me.To each their own though.I agree with the Bell's labels. How
    can you go w...

    Final gravity is the amount of residual sugars left in your beer after it ferments. A higher
    final gravity means more residual sugars and a sweeter or fully bodied beer. When your final
    gravity gets v...

  • Posted in thread: Mashing with cane sugar on 10-06-2011 at 01:25 PM
    It doesn't make much sense to me to add it to the mash. When you sparge you are trying to rinse
    the grains of all the converted sugars. By puting the sugar in the mash you are just going to
    have to ge...

    Dougan-Ive been to that brewfest a few times and I think you were the only person worried about
    the alcohol content at that place. My experience has shown that everyone at that place is there
    to get h...

    Its awesome. Those of you in MN know what I am talking about. I prefer the Furious above all
    others but have heard many of my friends who like Bender. And now the 16-grit is on tap around
    town which j...

  • Posted in thread: Lagunitas Imperial Red clone on 04-22-2009 at 10:21 PM
    Dont want to steal the thread but I just logged on to ask about recipes for Lagunita's IPA. The
    website only says that it has 43 varieties of hops and 65 malts. Most of the stuff on that
    website is gi...
