    * I am using EC1118 yeast. Should I pitch one full yeast packet if I am doing half the total of
    the OP's recipe? Will that extra yeast create any issues?* Should I cut the lemon and tea in
    half as wel...

    I've been using the same numbers for Piloncillo as Turbinado, it's very similar in flavor, but
    the piloncillo seems to have a bit more of a buttery taste, I assume from the mallard reactions
    in boilin...

    Question: is the function of topping off with more juice in the secondary simply to fill
    headspace?.A: It's just to fill headspace.As for keeping it in primary for bulk aging, I
    wouldn't keep it in pr...

    I'll bite on this as well. it sounds like the sort of sugar you want to use for this is sold
    around here has "evaporated cane juice" which is quite a bit lighter than turbinado or
    demerara, but certai...

    I can really only vouch for the recipe as written, which is without the brown sugar, honey or
    spices.I really think that IF you were going to do spices, which I don't recomend, that'd be
    far too much ...

    You know, I think that WYeast West Yorkshire, or While Labs Yorkshire Square Ale would be great
    in all of these. that or the WLP005, ringwood. They are all very malty yeasts, and would work
    great in a...

  • Posted in thread: Honey Porter Recipe on 12-26-2010 at 09:11 PM
    I think you won't taste the honey in there, even at 3 pounds. Personally I would add 2# of a
    STRONG flavored honey (buckwheat, basswood, etc.) at secondary (don't boil it), and replace
    half of the cry...

    If you want it drier, you shouldn't be mashing at high as 154, but more like 150 or 148.
    Mashing higher will make it more sweet. I might also suggest replacing the C40 with a smaller
    or similar amount...

    I've added what some might consider "strange" things in my beer, as I've done a few non-hop
    beers bittered with Yarrow, mugwort and wormwood. Turned out quite interesting, although I will
    probably dro...
