    The PB boils at 207F. DMS is driven off and hops are isomerized, I assure you. In MN (800ft
    above sea level) boiling temp is 210F so don't get caught up with thinking 212F is boiling temp
    everywhere. ...

    Wow -- cool -- I just ordered a can. For $21, it's quite a bit cheaper than HopShot (I've got
    loads of syringes, too -- bought when I wanted to a nice sized syringe for the Pico's sample
    port.)How muc...

    I've started to add NB's hopshot about 2 minutes before the boil is over. I've been using a
    single syringe, but I may step up to 2 at the end of the boil for my next IPA.If you are using
    Hop extract e...

    I did brew the extract recipe exactly as is.I did the reading pre bottling - so de-gassing
    wasn't the issue.This was actually my first yeast starter, active fermentation was great. I
    live in Boston in...

    Forgot to mention I did know my OG at 1.053, so I was happy with that. I used a hydrometer to
    measure both OG and FG.I can't really answer why your beer stalled out around 1.020...without
    knowing your...

    Hoping for some feedback here:Brewed this recipe, even made a yeast starter with the White Labs
    Irish Ale Yeast. About two weeks in I added a mixture of vanilla beans and bourbon (that had
    been sittin...

    That's the way I was leaning after doing some more reading. Thanks for talking through it with
    me. Now I need to find a source for good Grade B syrup.This may be the best I've found: seem
    to have cha...

    Thanks. A quick google showed me the same thing and that people are reselling it on Amazon!Do
    you think it would be a good choice or should I seek out some Grade B?I have only ever used
    maple syrup in...

    I currently have whatever grade Costco sells, but based on one of the posts above, it sounds
    like it might be worth it to seek out some Grade B if that isn't what the Costco (Kirland)
    brand is.The Ki...
