range. I like ...
Posted in thread: Brew Smith with low "boil" temp for automated brewing on 11-25-2015 at 02:19 AM
Well, boiling is boiling. It doesn't matter what the temperature is, if something is boiling

When I starting using my current HERMS, I ended up with increasing my mash liquor to 1.5

No, probably not.The reason is probably much simpler- 35 IBUs in a beer that has an OG of 1.061
is pretty darn low!That's an IBU/SG ratio of .583- almost perfectly balanced. That means that

You sir should be reported for posting food porn. Nice work! Cheese making is next on my list
of crazy hobbies. If @Yooper talks me into one more thing I think my family is going to have me
