    They were originally pretty poor, but these guys have gotten better. You can buy whole grains
    and grind them in store, and the employee there will help you out if needed.

    haha actually, i am going the total opposite route. i don't care for much sweetness in my ipa's
    at all. i was having a hard time finding an easy but interesting recipe with no caramel
    malt.i'm expecti...

    Let me guess: basic IPA, but you're adding cherries, oak, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, bourbon
    and nuts? ;)That's what sinks people: trying to include everything.

    Is your mash not working right, depriving you of some of the grain flavor? Neither of these
    styles is hoppy, so that's all you've got.These aren't blockbuster styles. When you compare to
    commercial be...

    I also got an ounce of centennial hops ... Can I add that and boil? Or should I add those later
    in secondary?You could use them for more bitterness, in which case you'd have to boil them with
    extract ...

    No idea on most of that. We don't really have stable temps here, so it's always a crap shoot.I
    didn't leave it to lager all that long. A few weeks, maybe. If you go into December, be careful
    about fre...

    Caramel candies? How much does he have?It sounds like a waste of effort. It would probably just
    be easier to use its components (mostly sugar). To me, this is a bit like saying, I made these
    homemade ...

    Based on everything I have read, I thought I needed to boil the extract for about 60
    minutes.Not for a pre-hopped kit. Long boils are needed to get hop bitterness, but this has
    been done already. It's...

    I did this once in Western NY. I used a garage storage area (a small room separate from the
    garage itself). I choose the right time of year (right about now) so I could hit ~50 degrees
    ferment and the...

    I would go one step further and place the cooler or styrafoam box in a room that is a few
    degrees warmer than it.:)
