  • I brew on a Mr. Beer system (2 mini kegs at 2.5 gallon capacity each), but do all grain, partial mash, and clones. I have recently started making some good recipes of my own including a nice Wit Bier inspired by Blue Moon and a real Oktoberfest that is a nice and malty, the way it should be.

    with the og at 1.052 it will be a low abv porter. I love the color and the flavor is great
    although really...

  • Posted in thread: Dogfish Head 90 Minute Clone on 02-04-2017 at 10:14 AM
    So if making the partial recipe for this would it matter if I used Pilsen or Golden DME?I like
    Pilsen but you could get away with either

    So I ordered the grain and ingredients for this recipe, and got some cacao nibs. I guess I

    first in the oven ...
