Awesome article-I read this in BYO. I have a few questions that I'm hoping you can address:1.
Why use a solid bottom with holes for each frame instead of just a completely open bottom

Posted in thread: Amount of Yeast for Barleywine on 04-23-2015 at 01:45 AM

Wondering if anyone has ever brewed any of the recipes that show up the Great Lakes Brewing
