Posted in thread: Cedar aged IPA, thoughts? on 11-02-2012 at 03:48 AM
Any update on this? I plan on brewing the Maduro Stout recipe I found on HBT, and, I think

almost no pape...

I've only ever had Anchor twice. Once before I really found my love of beer and thus under
appreciated it, and the second time I remember really liking it. I need to refresh my memories
of it! In my o...

is the link for one of the articles I read on Dampfbier. There's a BYO article but it's

I had an imported dampfbier once and it will be a long time before i try it again. It wasn't

Lots of good ideas, thanks guys! If I can decide on a style I'll do a half batch to see what my
swamp cooler is capable of. I feel much better about this prospect. Temp seems to have spiked
at 90F her...

Thanks! Hmm...that's not a bad idea! Maybe I'm underestimating the power of a water bath. I
guess there's only one way to find out. I'll check out doing a steam beer, that's one style

I've got an unusual weekend off, and with the nice weather here in Seattle of late, I want to

Thanks. The guy I bought from kinda runs a shop out of his house. I bought some 16oz new ones
