What gives you that impression? You can measure efficiency at three distinct portions of the
process.. in the mash, in the kettle preboil and in the fermenter. They all tell you important

Yesterday I attempted a partial mash for the first time, I ended up missing my OG by a mile
(target 1.067, actual 1.053). My calculated efficiency was ~30%. My method was not traditional
and I am sure...

Cheap and easy to use. I made a hop spider for 10 bucks and it works great for my IPAs with
huge hop additionswhen do you take your hop spider out of the boil? after it's cooled or right
when the boil...

ok steel reserve is not the best but at 7 dollars a 12 pack where i live. dont get me wrong i
love my homebrew and great craft beers. but there are those times when you are short on cash.

Steel Reserve gets what job done? Tasting bad?yes but has taste that any LIGHT beer does not

trying to balance taste with cost. there is a lot of crap out there. if you got to drink cheap
with some taste what would that be.
