  • Posted in thread: Blending beers on 01-27-2016 at 04:26 PM
    I haven't done this myself, but while visiting Leinenkugel's they blended beers in their bar
    and have even gone so far as to name the blends. That said, they blended as they went instead
    of in the keg...

  • Posted in thread: Rehydrated Yeast Question on 01-25-2016 at 10:07 PM
    I would add a little wort to the yeast, wait 30 mins and then pitch into the full batch. Unless
    you are afraid that you did something to contaminate the yeast, the worst that could happen in

    I use an old Pyrex one (they stopped making them) like that and it works fine, although you

    limitation in the...

    Exactly, although I would probably start with one ancho and then after it simmers a while check
    the flavor before adding another. They're not spicy, so you don't have to worry about that, but
    the flav...

    Never replace garlic!!! Besides they are completely different ingredients. Why not just add
    some of the anchos?

    Anecdotally, my 9%+ beers have taken around three months to carb. As long as you have some
    carbonation, I would say that waiting, at least a little while longer, is the way to go. You
    could also move ...
