    Sure, I'll post the recipe in the porter section.

    Agreed. More hops is more better, in my opinion. :)

    I've got an amber ale mashing right now. Gonna be a hoppy American amber using Columbus,
    Amarillo and Cascade.

    I love Maris Otter. I brew a ton of English styles (bitter being one of my favorites) and I
    think it's really important to use as a base for those, but it's also a great base malt for a

    Wow, that's a pretty awful week. Two years ago I brewed two beers in a weekend and found them
    both to be infected as I was going to transfer to the kegs. Suffice to say, the best way to
    recover from t...

    I've been playing around with a recipe to brew tonight. It started as a brown ale and developed
    into more of an India brown ale. The following is what I have currently. Thoughts?volume: 5.5
