I recently brewed a mango blonde ale that is currently on tap at Chez BeanJ that I am pretty
happy with. Lots of mango flavor came through. It was a 5g batch and I went with 4 lbs of
frozen mango chun...

The original owner of yeastcalc.com, who was a forum member, has been MIA for quite a while.

Honestly, I doubt it. A RIS is a sweet, over the top, flavor bomb from all the dark malts and
relatively high FG. A nice, clean yeast like Chico will allow all that to shine, as it should.

Well, then, there you go. For yeast, just go with US-05. If I were brewing a RIS, that's what
I'd use (actually, I'd use WLP001 because that's what I have in my yeast bank. WLP001 = WY1056
= US-05, mo...

It can be pretty much anything, but don't overdo it on the OG or bitterness. Aim for an OG in

I think you need more crystal and a bit more roasted. Take out the C10. Instead go with 6 oz.
each of C40 & C120 and up the RB to 4 oz. I'm not sure flaked corn belongs in the style, but if
you like i...

I assumed that the wheat entry was malted white, but yeah, probably not a bad idea to confirm

Another alternative to avoid potential scorching is to use a steamer rack in the bottom of the
brew kettle while your bag is in and the flame is on, as discussed in this thread.Yep, been

A wider kettle will have a higher boiloff rate than a narrower one. I'm not sure if the
geometry affects the BTUs needed to get the same volume of water/wort up to a boil. I would
