    Usually we do whole cinnamon sticks. Ground never really mixes well. I did one stick in a
    gallon for 2 weeks and it was very mild, would go a month next time.Was this is then secondary

    No.The glass gallon jugs are not to the best of my knowledge suitable for pressurizing. Quite

    160.Canadian grains s...

    The pumpkin contains a lot of unfermentable starch. You need to mash it with some malt to
    convert the starch to sugar so the yeast can eat it. 6 row malts typically can convert more
    starches to sugars...

    Any other brand 6-row, or any other brand 2-row.Why the need for 6-row? What type of recipe are
