    Awesome. Just absolutely awesome. I was looking for a "normal" everyday beer. Something that
    was away from the American hops. Gotta say I'm not a huge fan of this style- but this recipe
    was just perfe...

    Looking to brew this up soon. Generally my LHBS carries Whitelabs yeast, along with S-04 and
    Nottingham. Any specific recommendation from the crowd on which way to go there? Was thinking
    WLP-002 but w...

    Well, I've brewed this thing three different ways. I thought that I needed to increase the mash
    temperature because the beer was a little dry. Then I found out that my thermometer was -4 to

    Congrats on your gold medal! That is a huge accomplishment. One question: in Zymurgy the IBU's
    are estimated at 19.5, but you give one in the 30's. Obviously something in the 30's is more
    appropriate ...

    This is a damn good beer. I usually don't repeat brews, but this is one that I'll be doing
    again very shortly. For tweaks (because I can't ever brew something the same!), I might try
    increasing the ma...

    low and ramp up?Thanks!I try to pitch at around 65. I don't have the ability to "ramp up" temps
    because I...

    Well, I'm finally drinking my version of this brew. Due to brewing on a tight timeline and the
    limited bulk grain availability at my local shop, I had to make quite a few substitutions. The
    grain avai...
