    With shipping it comes out to $4 for 2 beans, basically what I found them for at a local
    vitamin/whole foods store in town. Here's the recipe. I did basically the same thing, but with
    only 1/2 lb of...

    I just got my 4 kegs in from ebay as well as my freezer today! Unfortunately I have no co2 yet,
    and won't for a week or two. Are there any problems with aging my beer in the kegs? I'd rather
    just let ...

    I use a lot of the White Labs California (WLP001) yeast and I was wondering if I could stretch
    it out a little further. My plan was to do a starter as I normally do (1000ml), and then swirl
    it to susp...

    I added my maltodextrin really late in the boil (about 15 minutes left) and it seems to have
    boosted my FG. My hydrometer says that it's at about 1.030, but it sure doesn't taste that
    sweet. I put up ...

    I just did my second all grain batch last night and I've noticed that both of the all grain
    batches have fermented much more actively than my previous extract brews. Has anyone else
    noticed this pheno...

    I was dumb and bought one of each, I love the stone brews. Killed the Oaked Bastard about 2
    weeks after purchase, it was like a smoother, kind of sweet Arrogant Bastard. I may very well
