Posted in thread: Adding Pecans and Maple Syrup to an ale or Porter on 02-16-2015 at 08:42 PM
Ok well after a year of doing this experiment I finally remembered to come back and post my

around 50 be...

Brewed this Monday night as a 10 gallon batch. Hit all my numbers perfectly and pitched S-05 in
one carboy and S-04 in another to do a little character comparison. Kinda wishing I had done

+1 to the STC-1000 temp controller. I've built 4 now for $30 a piece (if you already have your
