    i looked around a bit but couldn't find the answer to this question: if you add sugar (as you
    would with a tripel) can it still be considered a smash?

    cheers on the trippel! i just brewed one too. but i had a distinctly different experience with
    my partner. i fermented the 10 gallon batch with wyeast 3787 in one of those blue 15 gallon
    extract conta...

    no, you're right there, it sure wouldn't be "hard", assuming that you have full use of all your
    appendages and at least the mental capacity of a typical 8-year-old, but like i said before -
    it is some...

    doesn't the "cup of warm water" need to be sterilized as to not introduce any unwelcome
    competition for the organisms on your team? this is the main reason i don't bother. if it
    involved just running ...

    i've used sa-04 and sa-05 about ten times now. not wanting to bother with the extra step of
    rehydrating (whether it's considered troublesome or not, it definitely is "extra"), i've always
    just pitched...

    26# at a 1 qt./# ratio is the max.

  • Posted in thread: Decoction for a Northen Brown Ale? on 11-12-2008 at 02:43 AM
    decoction is fun, and i would totally recommend it. i too marveled at kaiser's video. and i
    would never discourage one from experimenting and brewing "out of bounds", but personally i
    don't think this...

  • Posted in thread: Stone IPA Clone Comparison - You pick the real one! on 11-11-2008 at 01:58 AM
    i did a stone ipa clone recently, splitting the 10 gallon batch and pitching sa-05 in one and
    sa-04 in the other. they are both great, but the sa-04 is slightly better. it has more malt
    character that...

  • Posted in thread: Pumpkin Ale Questions on 10-23-2008 at 12:56 AM
    personally, if you use fresh pumpkin and don't puree it, i don't think you need rice hulls. i
    made a pumpkin ale two days ago. first, i roasted three pie type pumpkins at 325 deg. for about
    a little o...
