    Won't really buy you anything. You could test for conversion after 60 and mash for longer if
    it's not done, but IMO all you're doing is adding half an hour to your brew day.

    Rush. That's right, I said it.Them's fightin' words here in Canadia... ;)My vote goes to Bon
    Jovi. Horrible, horrible songwriting. Two things made them famous: Jon's looks and Richie's
    hooks. That is ...

    Sudz, my experience with the reduced hop bill is that the beer still has a firm hop character
    but I would not describe it as bitter or overly hoppy at all. The Columbus worked out great,
    btw, I'd reco...

    ^^ Definitely one of my favourite styles. :rockin:

    ^^ Mtn bike is fine; fit is more important than the style of bike. OP, I agree you should pick
    up a good-quality used bike with a sturdy frame. Steel rides better than aluminum if you are
