    I've never brewed a barleywine, or a beer above 1.100 OG, or 100 IBU. So, a brew combining those characteristics is in the future!

    Thing I don't grasp in this thread is the value placed on speed--few if any of the substances
    we work with in homebrewing have critical time windows affected by the temperature changes
    possible with t...

    This recipe is spot freaking on. I'm bottling today, and the flavor and smell coming out of the
    fermenter and hydrometer cylinder is ...practically perfect in every way. It is extremely hard
    to screw ...

    Adding pasteur champagne yeast using the above suggestions (acclimating the yeast to the high
    alcohol environment) is working: the fermentation is unstuck and gravity has moved down to
    1.004 already. ...

    Dang, that's pretty good for your first couple AG batches. That's Just what I was thinking! My
    first AG's were over 6 hours. Now it's about 4 and a half plus or minus—depending on how long
    I'm letting...

    Saw a thread the other day where someone let there saison get to 100+ and was NOT happy with
    the results. IMO, keep the yeast warm enough to keep them going. I assume at some point you
    will see dimini...
