    Yeah, I just wasted money on these strips as well. Does anyone know if they will work to test
    if my Starsan solution is still good at least? I hate getting sucked into a bad deal, even if

    Great, that's good news. Thanks for that. Not being EXACTLY sure when I'll next be brewing, it

    I have a beer that is ready to start lagering. Will it adversely affect this beer if I start
    lagering it now and then raise the temperature in my chest freezer back up to 50F for a few
    more weeks whil...

    flavors start t...

    Wow, that's encouraging...I'll go with it, then! I chose the mash temperature based on advice
    that Mitch Steele gave in an interview, so want to try that out this time although it goes
    against my stan...

    I'm not much of an IPA guy, but I'm brewing one this weekend because it will make a nice
    change.If you ARE an IPA brewer, would you please look over my recipe and make suggestions,
    especially on the h...

  • Posted in thread: BIAB with step mash on 03-12-2014 at 04:59 PM
    I will be brewing a Helles this weekend and would like to try doing a step mash by adding hot
    liquor to the mash rather than heating the kettle.Based on what I have read in Horst
    Dornbusch's Helles bo...
