    When will you add the honey? I've read some places tend to add it at flame out, others at the
    30 minute mark.

    So after reading a few of the Christmas Ale recipes I wanted to try one of mine.Basically it's
    Jamil's recipe but I'm replacing 3 pounds of British Pale with white wheat. After that I'm
    using my own s...

    I was there! Oh did that surprise the hell out of us. It's one of those confusing moments where
    you want to be pissed but you can't really because there isn't anyone or anything to blame. I
    think it w...

    Very cool info, thank you. I didn't know if my growler would cut it or not and from looking
    above it may prove a bit messy lol. I suppose I could look into a 5l starter vessel too. It may
    save me some...

    I'm brewing up two batches over the next two weeks. Both recipes call for the same yeast. If I

    of dme in...

    I had a Christmas Ale start out with 1.080 and last I checked it was sitting at 1.035 after 17
    days at 66 degrees. I need to get it down to 1.010 so I warmed it up to 70-71. It still looked
    like it ne...

    It's been 4 weeks since I started my Marzen. I had it sitting at around 50-55 degrees for about
    3 1/2 weeks, then brought it up to around 65 for 3 days. It's been sitting in the frig now at
    around 38 ...

    Most of the comments have eased my fears a little and thank you for all of the help. I may even
    have a solution. I found an old lid that fits perfectly in the bottom of the cooler. I was
    thinking abou...

    I just got a stainless steel false bottom for my homemade tun and in my opinion it's too small
    by about an inch on either side. My question is; should I go ahead and use it anyway? I've
    never owned on...
