    Chips are going to have oil that cocoa wont, will reduce head retention. Also, there'll be a
    lot less surface area to extract the flavor from... Milk chocolate and cocoa also have
    different tastes, mi...

    Steep the grains in a large nylon bag or similar for around 30 min at 150-155 in as much water
    as you need to cover the grainsPull the grains out and let the water drain out of the bag for
    10-15 minAd...

    I've done 4 or 5 batches and haven't had a problem. I get my beams from a local coffee shop
    that roasts their own beans. They scoop them buckets into 2oz sleeves, I bring them home and
    pour into the f...

    I have never gotten banana or clove from 545, one of the big reasons I like it. I get more dark
    fruit and spicy phenols, not clove like spice though, maybe slight cinnamon...I may just split
    that batc...

    I did a quick search for yeast in the thread and it doesn't appear that there's ever been a
    clear answer given. I assume most are using a clean fermenting year, American Ale or S-05. Any
    thoughts on u...

    I did one brew with canned pumpkin and I agree that stuff clogs the bag horribly, next time
    I'll use Irish moss even though doing BIAB.The pumpkin won't contribute to the OG much, a point
    or two at mo...

    I would go with 2.2. I haven't made this recipe but sounds like that would be ideal, don't want
    it to "flat" like a porter or stout or to the level of an IPA.

    Sorry for reviving a 2 yr old thread, but I just had this in Long Trails Fall Variety pack and
    it would be a nice year round beer, IMO. I picked up some nice chocolate notes in the finish,

    Not sure what kind of pan you're pouring into, I think most if not all of us are pouting into
    mason jars after it's done boiling. If you stop boiling and start cooling at the right time it
    will be a s...

    I had a beer that looked like that, bubbles weren't that big though, just really small ones.
    Beer ended up being fine, never had an off taste or issues with bottle bombs from something
    wild fermenting...
