Today I used Carafa Special I today instead of Chocolate Malt just because of that Randy Mosher
interview.Then, because of the Gordon Strong interview I did not add the 2# Carafa I and 2#

You mention espresso...you know, maybe it's the volume of something in the roasted grain that
makes it seem less smooth. Like an espresso, it IS smoother, but concentrated as well.Yeah,
I've heard man...

Yeah, I've been planning my recipes as if the darker the roast the more acrid/astringent. I've

From Beersmith..."We discuss why there are not many malts made in the range of 100-350L color,

Posted in thread: How long does water need to boil to drive out the oxygen? on 05-20-2014 at 11:25 AM
I've been thinking about boiling the mash water as well since watching that podcast...I wonder

Posted in thread: honey added, very dry, strong alcohol smell/taste on 05-19-2014 at 03:06 AM

great results. ...

Posted in thread: Could sweet dextrins with low mash temp cause problems? on 04-17-2014 at 03:22 AM
I'm worried my mash regimen could cause me problems. I've got near 15% caramels, hoping to
balance that with a light body mashing at 150*. I recently read that BIAB at 148 can become
very dry. Anyone ...
Posted in thread: Too Much Chocolate Malt? on 09-19-2013 at 05:25 AM
I'm researching with a similar recipe in mind. According to Ray Daniel's "Designing Great
