    I usually try to put the oak cubes into the secondary first and then rack the beer onto the oak
    (or whatever you're adding). If the beer is already in secondary, add them so as to not agitate

    I see the point in force carbing, reducing sediment etc....but if I'm looking for bottles that

    I've been aging an Imperial Stout for about 8 months now in secondary, added some oak etc. Now
    I'm ready to bottle this up in 32oz swing tops for some bottle conditioning. I'm planning on
    using DME to...

  • Posted in thread: Too much Chocolate Malt? on 01-22-2014 at 03:42 PM
    I would brew it as is, it will be leaning more towards a porter with that much chocolate in
