Malting companies carefully monitor the level of pesticide application on the grains they are
purchasing. Growers selling to maltsters have to comply with these expectations or lose their
Posted in thread: Just scored 165 pounds of Maris otter for $120 😃😃😃 what should I brew ?? on 01-18-2015 at 01:32 PM
I'd do a bunch of pale ales with just MO and 5% crystal 40-60. Then I might throw in a dry
stout or two and some Scottish ales kept simple would be nice as well. For the Scottish you
could use all MO ...
Posted in thread: What is your ideal ABV? on 01-16-2015 at 02:56 AM
I'm an outlier here. My target is usually 4.5-5% ABV. Often going lower than this. Right now I

This afternoon I brewed up a Honey Ginger Ale. Everything went pretty smooth after I repaired
some equipment that was damaged last time I brewed. Just before I started the boil my wife
popped out the ...
Posted in thread: Honey malt in Ginger Ale on 12-30-2014 at 06:21 PM
The title sums it up pretty well. I am going to make a ginger ale and ramp up the ginger a
touch, compared to previous batches. So I thought I'd throw in some Honey Malt to balance
things out and brin...

That looks good. It's a compression fitting. I struggle getting this set because you need a
clean cut on the end of your pipe. It should be simple if you attach it to a T because you

I don't have any photos of my manifold. I need to replace some parts in my rims tube, they are
