    Well?

  • Posted in thread: Holy Grail Ale Clone on 01-26-2013 at 09:04 PM
    I had Blacksheep's Holy Grail Ale from a keg once and I really liked it, although I wouldn't
    say it knocked my socks off. I needed another WY1469 beer to go with some others to get mileage
    out of the ...

  • Posted in thread: Is it bad to check beer often? on 01-26-2013 at 01:34 PM
    Six months ago I would have said opening the lid is a sure path to a raging wild yeast
    infection. I had one once when I first started that I blamed on peeking at the time. Lately I
    have been fermentin...

    Call me practical, but I'd go for something with low color, low ABV, and no weird ingredients

    I can't imagine trying to maintain a steady mash temperature in a metal pot, aluminum or
    stainless, without an automated RIMS or HERMS system. Use the cooler for MLT.I mash in a
    converted keg with a l...

    I bet it's in the yeast. The most "English" results I have ever obtained were from a basic
    English grainbill and tortured manipulation of pitch rates and fermentation temperature.

    I don't know about biscuit, but if it's anything like amber, I would use less. i am drinking a
    bitter right this very moment with 8% amber in it, and I found it to be too much. Too heavy,
    almost syrup...

    Is there any reasoning as to why you wouldn't want to mash in with the total boil volume of
    your big beer? I would think that this would give you the advantage of having a thinner mash,
    which would le...
