    Anybody have a recipe for Boundary Bay Scotch Ale? Since I don't live in Bellingham, I don't
    have a chance to drink it often enough. I'd sure like to try to brew some.TIA,Dwight

    1728 is the only yeast I've used for a SA so I really don't know any different. I try to age it
    for a few months but it's really hard not getting into it. What kind of temp would you suggest
    for the m...

    Been trying to perfect a Scotch ale. I've been using Wyeast 1728 yeast but in reading about
    Wyeast 1450 it seems like it might be good for a scotch. I'm looking for a lot of malt and
    caramel flavors w...

    One thing I forgot to mention, FG = 1.016. They check the gravity hourly once it gets under
    1.020 and when it hits 16 they quickly chill it to 35F to stop the fermentation. Exciting news!
    I spent some...

    Exciting news! I spent some time this past weekend with a guy who was formerly a brewer for Mac
    & Jack's. Since he no longer works there he was more than willing to share information about M
    & J's. He...

    I'm not sure you would be able to tell any difference. AFAIK they are both fairly clean,
    neutral yeasts. If you want to try a yeast that would really change the flavor profile you
    would probably have ...

    I normally brew ag but I've recently tried Cooper's kits a couple of times. I started with a
    can (3 3/4 lbs) of Cooper's Real Ale, added 4 lbs of amber dme and 1/4 lb of malto dextrine (to
    give more b...

    Most bars will fill a growler for you. As far as a 22 goes, if you let it sit for a while (a
    couple of days or so) and you see sediment in the bottom you should be good to go. With the
    amount of yeast...

    Ben, You need to harvest some of the real m&j's yeast from a growler or keg. It's really easy
    to do and in the long run will save big $$$! I harvested from a keg but it should work fine
    from a growler...

    Brewed a batch of M & J's last week using yeast harvested from a keg (I live near the brewery).
    Gravity went from 1.060 to 1.014 in 4 days. I'd have to say the yeast is definitely healthy.
    Hopefully i...
