    217563217564Sweet. We wax capped all ours last year and uses way too much. It is quite a bitch
    to cut through it! But those look great.

    Has anyone ever had this problem with a tiny leak at the mouth of the carboy with a blowoff
    tube inserted? The first evidence was a tiny hissing bubbling noise. Im not concerned during
    fermentation an...

    Aero lite, how did this turnout? I'm adding 15 pounds of honey on a 10G batch today but mixing
    it in at flameout. Will kick in white wine yeast in secondary to get things fermenting a bit

    Thanks! I have had no trouble fermenting down beers under 1.1og with American and Scotch ale

    Update Day 3 - both the Yeast Irish and Scottish Ale yeasts role to the challenge of 1.112 SG
    wort straight from a single smack pack, no starter. They took a while to gear up for battle and
    propagate ...

  • Posted in thread: Cacao nibs gave GROSS flavor on 07-27-2014 at 06:56 PM
    I have the exact same bag of nibs from Amazon. I used them last year in a Stout with
    Raspberries that didn't work out well. I didn't particularly pay attention to the chocolate
    flavor since it was the...

    First batch was an imperial oatmeal stout with cocoa nibs, cinnamon, vanilla beans, and ancho
    peppers that turned out very well.Hunapocalypse! I love that combo (as you know from my other
    thread). Swe...
