  • Posted in thread: "Maple" Nut Brown recipe? on 07-26-2016 at 12:16 PM
    This was the latest version (I had done two before). I would go with this version again. It was
    delicious, and I could absolutely taste maple. Mashing high, including some darker malts, and
    the maple ...

    Nice! I fermented mine with Roselare and it sat in the primary for 4 months. I then racked to a
    secondary, brewed a new batch and collected it on the yeast cake in the primary. In a few
    months, this s...

    Do it! I have done several, and I settled on a recipe that gives a definite maple flavor.

    I made a 100% peated malt ale. I know, it defies comprehension. But if we're talking Islay (and
    especially peaty Islays), let's go Ardbeg Supernova (at over 100ppm peat phenols) or
    Bruichladdich Octom...

    More than likely, you will find yourself wanting to be involved in his/her life in many ways.
    This doesn't mean that your hobbies will fade away; however, some may change. I still brew
    beer. At first ...

    Many yeast strains have a hard time fermenting in a high alcohol environment. So it takes
    longer for the reduced amount of viable yeast cells (that tolerate the environment) to
    completely convert suga...

    I brewed a lambic and filled a 59 gal barrel (with about 55 gal wort). Had a 1.5" blowoff into
    a 5 gal bucket of starsan. I have NEVER seen such vigorous fermentation. Had to empty the
    bucket and refi...

    The latest pellicle on the lambic in a 59-gal French oak barrel. This is the third year (we're
    about 4 months into the third year). I would guess maybe 1 gal is 2.33 year-old lambic, 2 gal
    is 1.33 yea...
