    Forgot the second part of your question. Normally I would advise against a beans new brewer
    messing around too much with spices because it is easy to overdo. If you want to though:Pumpkin
    and maple sy...

    Yep. Oxy clean free or pbw and a soft cloth works wonders. I emphasize soft cloth here. You
    don't want to scratch any stainless you might be using (because it's ugly) and you definitely
    don't want to ...

    So I finally decided to enter one of my beers in competition earlier this summer since the
    Tennessee State Fair was hosting nearby. I had an american amber kegged up which wasn't bad at
    all--mashed to...

    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
    chiller b...

    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
    sure you're fine. I'm actually fermenting an amber at the moment (1.056) at 66F that slowed
    down considera...

    You would have to give an original gravity for anyone to take a guess as to how long it may
    take. Even then though, it would be a complete guess. As long as you pitched enough healthy
    yeast and are fe...

    I'm a little late to the party here and I am surprised that no one has mentioned this so
    far...I'm about 90% sure that what OP is talking about is the phenolic flavor present in some
    belgians. I would...

    Fearwig had some very good advice in using an ice bath to regulate temp. I personally use our
    spare bathtub and frozen water bottles which will hold nearly any ale temp with minimal work
    (since there ...
