I've got about 10 extract/specialty grain batches under my belt and decided to try a small 1
gallon all-grain batch just to get the feel for all-grain. I mashed approx 2.5 lbs in a bag in
2.5 quarts o...

I pitched 2565 for the first time about 10 days ago (1L starter following instructions on

coriander (in a muslin bag) in the last 15 minutes of the boil. I also used whirlfloc and the

their 7th d...

5 days ago, I dry hopped 2 ounces of simcoe pellet hops. Boiled 2 muslin bags and two dozen

I've been looking for something to try out with sorachi ace hops. Would you mind sharing the
