    the flaked maize is tremendous in this recipe. It dries it out, makes it crisp. I love it in
    there. This is a solid recipe, we stuck pretty much to yoops original on page 1, only modifying
    our water, ...

    you need to know your equipment. For instance, if we are going to mash at 152, we factor in
    "dead space" in our tun, as well as temp outside. We use the orange home depot coolers, which
    are tremendous...

    we brewed 12 gallons on sat night of this again. We did 2 things we have never done before. We

    ours was pretty sweet as well, but finished off very dry & crisp. I am actually starting to
    think we're more in the 6.5% to 7% ABV range. I have one of these and I can feel it. Our
    efficiency has been...

    I just filled 8 grolsch bottles with the remainer of this 3 gallon keg, just so we could get
    keg 2 on the Co2. Curious how the glass will soften the flavor. I do notice, even bottling off
    the keg, the...
