I've been brewing the Cream of Three Crops recipe found here for a while now as my goto
summer ale and experiment base. I think I will add something like 3 oz of a "C" hop in the mash
and not have a...

Sorry I missed the draft and first week of the season. I totally forgot about the league. I am
ready to go now. My team is not nearly as bad as I had feared it would be.

A friend gave me the idea of adding dried hibiscus in the dry hop phase to turn it red. It will
be an IPA so this may solve my problem unless someone can come up with a better grain solution.

Yeah, it's one barley, one wheat, one oat, etc. At first I was thinking of using midnight

I started doing all LME brews, tasted too metallic for me, pushed me to all-grainI thought I
would get that as well. I don't know if the hops or the sweetness covered it up, but I didn't
get a metalli...

Try adding the LME with 15min left next time. No need to boil it the whole time since it is
already extract. This is what I do now and it makes a big difference. I use steeping grains
when I do Extrac...

In case anyone was wondering, the beer turned out drinkable. It was a little sweet for my
taste. It got stuck at 1.022. My friends liked it and drank it all that night, so I say it was
a success, thou...

I would never use that DME either. I wouldn't trust that company to ensure the necessary
quality control and standards that I am comfortable with. I would stick to Munton's or Briess
myself. Sent from...
