  • I've been a homebrewer since 2006 but went to All grain brewing earlier this year. I follow recipies more or less but also love to experiment with smaller batches of beer. rnMy favorite beers to make are IPA's and Porters.

    I mash my entire grainbill as a single step infusion. That being said I don't know if that's
    the best way or not. I generally like to mash around 150-152 for 75 minutes.

    Sorry hop hoarder but last I checked Canada and the United States are both in North America.Yes
    they are but when you say "American" the common perception is a referral to the U.S. alone,

    Cascadian Dark Ale is primarily what it's called out here in Cascadia (west coast of the U.S.
    and Canada). CDA's are often hopped citrusy like our IPAs, so really I think the CDA is the
    best name for ...

    I doubt that many on this forum would have tried that beer. I'm just east of Vancouver and I've
    never heard of the brewery or the beer. Website says Citrus, Tropical Fruit and Pine, so I'd

    I'd cut back quite a bit on the Black Patent. Take that bad boy down to 4oz and put in around
    5% grainbill of Roasted Barley instead. Personally I'd also scale back your flaked barley and
    oats to 1lb ...
