    It is the drink of men who think
    And feel no fear nor fetter
    Who do not drink to senseless sink
    But drink to think the better

  • I was introduced to Home Brewing by my mother-in-law, Sallie Taylor, in the fall of 2007. She had brewed beer on her own "back in the day" and decided to get back into it. She involved my wife and I in one of her batches, and I have been hooked ever since. She, Sallie, and my father-in-law, Pat, bought me a home brew kit for Christmas, and I haven't looked back. It is now my passion!! I've dragged many of my friends and fraternity brothers into the hobby, and so far they all thank me for it.

    I used some recently with a mead, found that 1 they float, 2 wished I'd ground them (I've since

    My sugestion would be to take an oz of nibs and boil them in a gallon of water(or gallon of
    water and some dme) and taste. It really is quite subtle. I have a feeling that under the
    weight of 6#s of r...

    How did this turn out?It turned out well. The cocoa flavors you get from nibs are quite subtle,

    darker/chocolate malt...

    the fermenter(10g batch volume). Ive done this same beer before using only chocolate malts, but
    wanted t...

    I attempted a Dogfish Theobroma-ish recipe, and bought some cacao beans from my LHBS. Didn't
    roast them, but cracked them with a rolling pin and dumped them in the boil at 10 minutes.
    Haven't tried th...

That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." (Cliff Calvin)
