    Brew day went ok, missed OG by a few points since I forgot to adjust for my crappy mash
    efficiency, should end up around 4.5% which is ok. The Star Anise(licorice) flavor was stronger
    than I want in t...

    whats the malto dextrin for in this recipe??JJSomewhere in the thread someone stated the malto
    is to give a creamier mouthfeel.

    Brew went OK, only got 1.058 for OG so must've added too much top off water. Sample was more
    bitter than expected so hoping that subsides a little after fermentation, otherwise taste is
    pretty good fo...

    I picked up ingredients today, going to use DME, and decided on using WY 1450 as I've been
    happy with it other porters and stouts I've done.For the vanilla I have had bad luck getting
    the flavor that ...

    Picked up ingredients to brew this weekend. Going with WLP 008, got the last package of it that
    LHBS had and just using Rose Hips since they didn't have Hibiscus. Any input on mash temp?
    Seems 152-153...

    I plan on brewing this up this weekend, extract version since I plan on doing a wheat at the
    same time and seems wheat extract still doesn't get the best rating, not like light, amber, and
    dark extrac...

    Surprised, maybe glad, that you replied and said to use so little hibiscus. I was going to go
    by the amounts from this plan on making the mad fermentatioinists Hibiscus Wit shortly after
    this so I'l...

    After reading the description it sounds like a better fit than a Wit strain, Cold Snap is
    definitely cleaner and crisper than most Wit's.As for the plums/prunes that was a complete
    brain fart on my pa...

    Any feedback on your version of this @jmdkc? Going by what SA shows on their commercial and the
    info on their website I think the recipe looks pretty accurate, except the website lists Rose
    Hips which...

    More or less that's normal for Saison strains. Saison and Belgian strain can give off some very
    strange smells during fermentation, some fruity, some spicy, some funky, but given time they
    all clean u...
