    Good Morning All:I'm looking for a Pumpkin Porter extract recipe. Preferrably without any
    actual pumpkin. I've searched all over and haven't much luck. Thanks.

    I've done this recipe a few times now. FYI, if you pitch the correct amount of yeast (i.e. at
    least a 2L starter - WY1450 is a bit sluggish), you can get this guy done with 3 weeks in the
    primary, che...

    I usually pour my cooled wort into one of my 6.5 gallon buckets with enough cold water to top
    up to 5 gallons. Then I pour it back and forth between my other sanitized 6.5 gallon buckets
    about 4-5 tim...

    The Northern Brewer Black IPA was my last brew. Very good beer. I currently have a bottle of
    Hop in the Dark sitting in my fridge, waiting. But I have recently tried Ink Heart CDA from
    Laurelwood Brew...

    UPDATE:I decided to start the starter today so if the yeast is no good, I'll still have time to
    grab another smack pack prior to brew day on Sunday. After all that worry,the inner packet was
    still int...

    scheduled. If not i...
