    I know I have a copy of how to brew somewhere. Need to look that up. Sent from my iPad using
    Home Brew

    One more thing guys. It may not be a problem but I remember in the early days being surprised
    by timing and almost screwing things up because I didn't sanitize something before it was
    supposed to be u...

    I live in Texas where the weather is very hot most of the year. Standing around a boiling pot
    for hours with an open flame is far from an ideal experience. I thought I remembered there
    being drawbacks...

    Hey guys. I'm returning to brewing after a 3 year sabbatical. I lost just about all of my
    equipment over the moves and such so I'm starting from scratch. I won't be a beginning brewer
    and have used mo...

    Also, I don't think anyone ever answered your yeast question from earlier. I usually like an
    English yeast character in my high gravity beers and try to build up a big culture from a
    vial/pack of liqu...

    I have never tried the Carafa Specials, but will sometime. I'm only a few hours away from
    Weyermann and need to hit them up for a bunch of grain in the near future. I like the nuttiness
    that chocolate...

    I asked my HBstore and they told me that Carafa I and Carafa III (the ones they sell) are not
    de-husked, also Weyermann's site has the carafa special on a separate category and it specifies
    that its d...

    If it is Carafa I, II, or III it is not de-husked. I believe only the Carafa Special is the
    de-husked.They make a Carafa Special I, II, and III. All of which are sold at what is probably
    the largest o...

    Indeed. I had heard that only the Carafa Specials were the dehusked. I guess I just hadn't seen
    any the shops that I go to carry the regular Carafa I assumed that was what was being used. You
    might ch...

    Carafa is roasted but the husks are removed reducing the bitterness significantly. So they are
    typically used when you want to darken something but don't want as much of the roasted flavor.
    They do st...
