I was just in Buffalo a few weeks ago and picked up a Muskoka mixed pack to drink before and
after the Tragically Hip concert. The mixed pack did not have "Detour" but it did have "Mad
Tom" IPA, which...

A wheat malt that is 10L is a dark wheat malt, similar to Munich malt. If you use the dark
wheat, I would expect it to add a more pronounced malt flavor. If you are using wheat for its
head retention ...

Yes, you can substitute C-40 for Caramunich in this case, especially since it's a small amount,
mostly for a color adjustment.How dark of wheat malt do you want to use? One pound isn't a high

I would keep the 1 lbs of Munich and add a few ounces or Cara Munich on top of that.Saison is a
very broad category, so you can certainly have a hoppy one if you want. Most common examples

I spent time there in December and my favorite was Rapp. It's across the bay closer to St.

Check out T-58 dry yeast. I just brewed a beer with it and the temp never went above 65 F. The

I always raise the temp to at least 65-70 on lagers in the last few days of fermentation
