    Here's one I've brewed several times. Latest was all pils and S-189. Went from1.036-1.005 and
    is the best batch yet. Love the simplicity, and the Tyranena glassware! :mug:

    My $0.02, since I love to see this style gaining traction. I brewed a similiar recipe (60% 2
    Row, 34% Flaked Corn, 4% Caramel Rye, 2% Black Patent (for color). Bittered with Cascade (16

    Hang in there- a few mediocre-to-poor batches is initiation, not a condemnation of your
    abilities. Slow down, analyze every step of your process, and find your rhythm. I had a 25%
    success rate for my ...

    Similar to Bonecity- I buy sacks of Pale, MO, and Golden Promise. Half sack of Munich,
    everything else is usually smaller (have a fleet of Mason jars). I'm lucky to have a great shop
    close by, though.

    Sure is, Presto hit all the steps. No different than if you filtered or otherwise transferred
    between cornies, just the 'supply' keg looks a bit different this time.

    Reviving an old thread... I was curious if dkennedy or anyone else has tried his suggestion of

    the kegs... ...

  • Posted in thread: Ways to eliminate bottle sediment on 02-11-2016 at 10:14 PM
    The sediment comes with bottle conditioning...I'm not aware of lower-sediment options (even a
    low flocculating yeast will still drop out some). You could get a keg, condition in the keg,
    then bottle t...
