Hey everyone. I've always been shut out of DLD & Hunaphu Day to this point. I'm moving to CA in
March, so I feel like if I don't try to trade for some of this now, I may never get to try
them. Those 2...

I'd go with the recipe in Mitch's book. I don't see any reason a brewer would give an incorrect
recipe, since it's the brewer's process that contributes most to the success/failure of a beer,

I've never had an oxidation issue or infection taking multiple gravity readings. One of the

The only way to get a true sense of what the hops will impart is to brew with them. Hop teas &
the bud lite method give you subtle clues as to what the hop could be like, but they really
need to be bo...

I don't like using whole leaf hops because they soak up a lot of the beer for a pretty similar
result. I just throw pellets straight into the primary once fermentation completes & the

I think there's a lot of value in tasting the beer along the way. That way you begin to learn
