well, since it's just a bittering hops, I go for a high IBU, since the flavor and aroma will

its own. Th...

here is my first try at a goose island bourbon county stout clone. for any of you who have had
this, it is thick and on the sweet side (finish gravity tested from bottle is over 1.040, i'm

Posted in thread: Getting the most out of hops on 01-08-2012 at 02:42 PM
I just tried the french press method to get more hop flavor and aroma in my partial-mash
stovetop system. You can read about it here in other threads, but it seems that it hasn't been
Posted in thread: Wyeast Scottish Ale yeast, hardly any krausen on 11-23-2011 at 02:08 AM
I just brewed a Scottish 80. Fermenting since Sunday. The krausen was noticeably smaller than
every other beer/yeast combo I've tried to date. krausen is now basically gone two days later,

My first beer was a Belgian Tripel. Sounds like a challenge for a first beer, but it really
wasn't. It was on the "sweet" side, so using all light DME for the base malt didn't not seem to
affect the f...

In my experience, stouts change the most dramatically in aroma/flavor with aging. I agree with
the above. The "toilet" and/or burnt rubber smell might just be the un-mellowed roasted malt.

I was very careful pouring from the bottles into the bucket, but it was hard to angle the
bottles to fit them in the bucket and shorten the pour height.I guess I'll leave it be (not
re-pitch or add cr...
