    when you say skunky just plain bad, what exactly do you mean? hopefully it's just green, but it
    sounds like an altogether different process could be taking place. how else would you describe
    the taste...

    thanks guys! i definitely think the 7gal sparge was an overcalculation, but i think setting
    aside the last 2+ gallons of the sparge was a good idea. hopefully my gravity will end up ok -

    hey guys,i'm just getting back into brewing, and am doing an all grain blonde ale. i calculated

    blonde ale/la...

    Rolling Rock is, without a shadow of a doubt, s%*t. But I like Yuengling.:)

    I used Yeungling bottles for my last batch - I thought it was a great idea because it's a tasty
    not-so-expensive non-twisty-cap beer. However, two of the necks cracked when I capped them,
    which makes ...

    I would use the 60 L, as jacksonbrown said, and perhaps try and throw in some pale 2 row rather
    than combining so many speciality grains. I recently used Vienna with Biscuit and it did not
