Thanks for the replies, guys. It's pretty unlikely that I mis-measured the ingredients, just
because of the way they were packaged -- even if I had screwed up the tare function, I couldn't
have been o...

I just brewed a partial mash version of BierMuncher's Black Perl Porter. This was my second
time brewing this beer; the first time went perfectly. This time, however, I'm getting some

This was an experiment to see what Argentine Cascades are like, and also my first stovetop
