    Your body probably is not even remotely aware of the "adjunct sugars". Those sugars ferment out
    completely to alcohol unlike malt. It appears to me that you started this thread with a
    conclusion and a...

    Now that I'm thinking about it, I think it's been mostly, if not entirely, American versions of
    Belgian beers. Given a lot of the comments here, I'm inclined to think that the yeast
    strain/fermentatio...

    Congrats on the the little one!I've definitely had less time to brew since I became a dad (I
    currently have a one year old daughter), but I agree with mdbrewer1-it's easier when you pick a
    day and com...

    Madscientist-I've considered that it's my overall intake, and at times, that has admittedly
    been to blame. However, the last time I experienced this I had one Belgian beer and then, two
    hours later, t...

  • Posted in thread: Belgian Beer Hangovers? on 05-12-2015 at 09:10 AM
    Recently (over the past two years or so), I started to notice a correlation between drinking
    certain Belgian beers and my hangovers. Specifically, Belgian strong ales seem to be the
    greatest culprit, ...

  • Posted in thread: mash volume - how thin is too thin? on 12-03-2014 at 03:54 AM
    With my limited experience (2 +\- years all grain), everything I've read seems to suggest that
    2 qts/pound was the upper limit. I'm not too familiar with BIAB techniques, but if your mash
    gets too thi...

  • Posted in thread: Using DME instead of LME on 12-03-2014 at 03:45 AM
    I would agree with GenIke. You do want some extract in there for the duration of the boil Nd to
    help with the utilization of the hops (utilization actually increases with some extract, as
    opposed to j...

    Thanks again all, with special thanks to Yooper and Chickypad. I think I was needlessly
    complicating things/over thinking and that is largely to blame for all the inconsistencies. I
    have had some trou...

    Thanks Priceless-I probably should start using a calculator for it, especially since I've been
    having so much trouble. I didn't think there would be too much of a difference in absorption
    rates, or at...
