Agreed on that book! I love it! But I have to admit in more hands in and like to test flavors
myself because one persons description of it could be a little different than your own
tastesSent from my ...

Most homebrew stores allow you to chew on some grain to get an idea. I know a lot of people do
smash (single malt and single hop) recipes to get to know base malts, hops and yeast
strains.Sent from my...

Thanks for the reply, that's helpful. So why would you do the efficiency calculating before the
boil! Since you haven't boiled off the excess water wouldn't the efficiency be lower than if
you did it ...

It seems that brew software defaults at 75% efficiency. Plus in threads on here I see everyone
striving for that. Is it bad to get above 75%Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

Thanks. Unfortunately I don't think I'll have an abundance of shoots. Shortly after posting

Last year I planted a centennial rhizome and when they sprouted they were green and leafy.
Today I found this where I planted it. It doesn't look at all like it did last year but it
looks like sproute...

Usually one package of yeast is sufficient for 5-6 gallons

First off I would buy the equipment needed, like an auto siphon, so you don't oxidize your wine
while racking and to limit the sediment you transfer. Also I would buy a hydrometer to
determine the gra...
