    Dream come true right there....granted my wife probably wouldn't like the spending I would do
    in order to brew 10-15 gal batches. Congrats, that's a beautiful piece of land right there!

    I leave my sack in the wort as the IC cools it (I have flame out additions a lot, so
    technically should stay in the wort for 15-20 minutes anyways...) after this ant of time my
    sack is usually cool en...

    Technically, you will lose a couple IBU's if you sack it according to Brulosipher, But not

    able to detect a difference in the final character of the beer, other than the lower alcohol

    The corona with the proper adjustments and a drill chew through 15lb of grain in less than 2
    min''s a thing of beauty to watch it and bask in the steady 75% BIAB efficiency I now
    get! So glad I...

    Beautiful beer! I picked up 3# of apricot purée as well that I plan on adding to half of a
    saison I just brewed yesterday. My plan is to split half of the batch into a 3 gallon carboy
    with all of the ...

    Thought I'd share my first ever custom recipe I've developed. This is the first time it's been
    brewed and honestly it's so good I don't really think I would tweak it much if at all! My dad
    is a huge P...

    Brewing her again this weekend. So far I've done a lemon version, a blueberry version, and an
    accidental "shandy" version which was a great summer beer. This round I will go with a "citrus"
    version to...
