    The reason Jamil’s starter size is so large is because he advocates pitching cold (45f or

    My second year cascade plant is acting a little strange. It's about 20' tall and there are
    quite a few cones but they are small, maybe 1/2 the size of the centennials next to it. They do

    I brewed up Jamil's Belgian Specialty ale (Orval-ish clone) from BCS a few weeks ago. Grain
    bill was the same (which included 1lb of table sugar) but I used Wyeast's PC 3739 Flanders
    Golden ale yeast ...
