I've been thinking about this too. I haven't found a source for HBC 344. According to Bear
Flavored, it has notes of green apple and tropical aromas. I've never used either variety, but
Equinox and Ca...

You'll be fine. I've neglected beers so badly, child protective services would have been called
if my beers were slightly more sentient. I had a nut brown do a 9+ month primary, and exhibited
Posted in thread: Crystal malt with oats? on 12-21-2015 at 09:09 PM
It seems grains high in oats were popular during the medieval times for cost reasons.
Apparently 100% oat beers are not all that interesting on their own, thus my interest in
roasting the grains. Very...

I've read very conflicting information about that. Several homebrew suppliers list the
diastatic power at 0 lintner, but that doesn't mesh with the reports of a handful of 100% oat
beers I've seen. Th...

I will admit I've only had their beer a few times, and regrettably not Congress St., but I've

I had this happen on a batch of IPA over the summer. I dry hopped it longer than I wanted to,
but other than that, no real production issues. I cold crashed and kegged it around the first
of October, ...

I've been playing with the idea of some 100% oat beers, but there really isn't a lot of variety
out there. I can't really find anything other that malted, flaked, and golden naked oats.
Golden naked o...

Thanks for the info. I feel the same way about CHAOS. I don't know that I'd be able to get up
there enough to really take advantage of a membership. Even with a car West Town is kind of a
pain to get ...

Hope you don't mind me bringing this thread back up. I also live in the Hyde Park area, and was
wondering if you figured out what club(s) best suit you? I've been getting back into brewing
over the la...

Last time I used that much Rye, the beer had a consistency of nyquil. It was awful. Ive read
you can do a protein rest? (nto sure if this is the right name) at like 120-130 to help
alleviate this thou...
