  • Started brewing with a friend at a local brew on premises homebrew supply shop in 2006. I mainly do IPA's, Wits and Stouts but constantly try out new styles of ale. Primarily do extract, but have been involved in all grain sessions. Hope to upgrade to all grain in the near future.

    This stout has 1.5 oz of Fuggles boiled 60 minutes. They are lower in Alpha Acids, but I hadn't

    I would certainly be concerned with the acidity of patent or roast malts not pairing well with
    sour. But this could be countered probably by mashing at a warmer temperature. Possibly add
    more crystal ...

    So I'm feeling experimental. I have a chocolate raspberry stout in secondary that I will be
    bottling probably in about another week and a half. However I am thinking about bottling 3
    gallons of it and...

    I ended up using 5 oz of priming sugar. My temp was around 68 degrees and my FG was 1.008. Also
    found out that half of my brew in the competition is being judged in 2 weeks and the remaining
    half in 4...

    I currently have just two reconditioned ball lock kegs. I am not familiar with the pin lock. I
    will need to research the differences. Thanks for all the suggestions though!
