Nothing exciting but just built myself an immersion chiller and put it in the boil for the last
15 min. Somehow managed to forget how good of a heat conductor copper is and tried to move the

Another suggestion for Tennessee: Ananda IPA from wiseacre brewing in memphis. It is a really
solid ipa with great hop aroma and flavor (they publish all of the particulars on their
website). 6.0% abv...

At 1.052 you're just fine :) I might be a bit worried had you said 1.080 or something but I'm

You would have to give an original gravity for anyone to take a guess as to how long it may

belgians. I would...

Fearwig had some very good advice in using an ice bath to regulate temp. I personally use our

Well just to throw in a wrench here. There are some that advocate cold steeping when using dark
roasted grains, as in black, chocolate or roasted barley to name a few. The theory behind it is

As others have said, definitely check a bottle in a week or so to see if you have any
carbonation. I honestly doubt that you will. 1 week in primary and 2 in secondary, while not
strictly ideal for mo...

Sounds close to right--perhaps a bit high depending on how much crystal malt you used. I mash
my double IPA at 151 and end at about 1.008-1.010 BUT I also use about 8% sugar in the batch
and only 1lb ...
