All good points. Didn't even think about the corn sugar altering the taste/mouthfeel, but it
would. Still deciding whether I want to add the MD and taste or just take my best guess and add
it all at o...

The plan was to just dissolve the stuff in the saucepan along with the corn sugar for priming
only using the amount of water I'd normally use for the priming solution. May need to add a
little extra w...

I started out at 1.056 and ended up at 1.009. According to the recipe I was following, should
have been closer to FG 1.013. Maybe my mash temp got a little lower than expected. Who knows.
Tasted it wh...

I got higher than expected attenuation with my IPA and it is tasting dryer than I would have

to 168 wi...

Figured I'd try batch sparging for the first time on my California Common. It will be about
10.5 lbs of grain. For the first infusion of the sparge, just going to add some boiling top-up
water after t...

I agree with the Baron in so far as the protein rest being a waste of time in this case since
you (I'll assume) are likely using highly modified malt (like most of us). :) I was hoping this
would be t...

The 90 minutes definitely seemed completely unnecessary to me as well. I'm also wondering how
important that protein rest is with well-modified 2-row. Think he recommends it just to reduce

I was looking in Szamatulski's Clone Brews book at an Anchor Steam clone that uses 9 lbs. US
2-row and 14 oz of crystal malt for the grainbill. What gets me is that the book recommends a
protein rest ...

Awesome. Expensive, yes. But it is good to know there is somewhere out there who has it if I
