    Well I got 11 lbs from our rhubarb patch and my father in law pitched in the final 4 lbs. Got
    things started today for 5 gallon batch. I just re-read the whole thread and I'm very excited
    for this win...

    Way too long. Like a month or more. First couple times I stuck to 7 days give or take and I
    loved it. I set this one up then I hurt my back this summer and forgot about it. So you will be
    fine.

    I have never used those, I've stuck with C hops and simcoe. But I think fruity hops would work
    great in this. Current batch, I really think the issue is I let it sit on the dry hops way too
    long and i...

    What do you guys think about the difference between the simple and alternate formulas for
    calculating ABV? Using Helly's numbers (1.110 - 1.020) I get 11.81% (simple) or 13.23%
    (alternate). Pretty big...

    I have some things listed on eBay, a few new and used surplus parts. If someone from here is
    interested, I'd be willing to drop prices a bit and take down the auctions. If anything looks
    good to you f...

    Mines at 1.030 from 1.110, took it out of the swamp cooler today. Seems to be gaining a few
    points yet. I definitely think it's a good candidate for aging on oak. Sent from my iPhone

    Did a variation of this recipe this weekend. 3 gallon batch, amped up the gravity and I'm
    planning on aging it on whiskey soaked oak chips. Bubbling away with a healthy pitch of
    WLP-005. Sent from my ...

    I haven't had a chance to keg mine yet. When I took a sample it seemed like it will be a nice
    easy drinking brown ale. Will give a full update once I have it on tap. Sent from my iPad using
