    Honey malt, it's patterned after German Bruhmalt. I've used it once and it was pretty darn

  • Posted in thread: skipping secondary, keeping in primary on 03-23-2014 at 09:04 PM
    I keep my dark beers in the primary for 3+ week and my lighter color brews I transfer into a

    I am involved with a brewery but beware - it will go from a fun hobby to a 7 day a week job in
    no time. I helped open a brew pub, not a fancy place, more like an island brew pub if you get
    my drift. T...
