    Looking for some info on how this came out - I have a quad I'm about to brew, and a large
    bottle of L K to blend in. Did 2% (small bottle / 5 gallons) work out ok? Seems low, but would

    Thanks everyone. My first batch is fermenting and based on what I have been reading here, I am

    good!It's ...

    6.5 oz. hops will work for one aromatic American IPA, but not two of them. For two-5 gallon
    IPAs, you'll need more hops.I would use 1/2 to 3/4 oz Magnum at 60 and 30, 1.5 oz. of assorted

    on brewing...

    Did a heff with 300 recently. hell of a head on it. I had to stir it and let it drop for a few
    days before bottling. Someone on here posted that they rack from below it, but I found that
    stirring it w...

    I started with extract, nailed all the other parts of the process, and then moved onto all
    grain - the move between the 2 was simple, 80% of the process is the same. I tell all my
    friends who want to ...
