Out of the two Careys from New Glarus, Dan just loves to stay in New Glarus and brew (you are

Ok, I'll give it some more time (another 2-3 months). I like my stouts to have a light
carbonation, but I guess if worse comes to worse I can just chill these and drink them as is.

I brewed up a pretty hefty RIS last November. OG was 1.124 and FG ended up at 1.034, so I am

Etching marks?! Sort of like using a glass cutter to cut a scratch where the glass will break

Posted in thread: I'm brewing beer for 100's of people -- how much to brew? on 01-14-2013 at 04:36 PM
