    I've used whole beans in secondary multiple times and had great results. All I did was test the
    beer after 24-36 hours and then every so often after that until I was happy with the balance
    and then bo...

    I've used a cast iron griddle (small one-burner size from Ikea) with that dough and it has
    turned out nearly identical to when I used a stone. In fact, when our oven blew up and we went
    without a full...

    After I got my corona mill I noticed that was getting a lot of husk in my wort and fermenter
    and that hadn't been a problem with grain milled at my LHBS. It didn't seem to matter if I used
    a paint str...

    I really need to try more recipes so I can't pick three (I'd probably add Lil'Sparky's Nut
    Brown if I hadn't made about every possible mistake from grain bill to bottling day so it's not
    even fair to ...

    I used oak chips (medium French oak) but only left the beer on it for two weeks. I really only
    pulled the beer because I wanted to give it time in bottles to get nice and ready for
    Christmas. From wha...

    I have had great luck pairing Columbus with Cascade and Chinook in separate IPAs. I need to
    remake the Chinook/Columbus mix and rack it onto some bourbon and oak, like Founders Hand of
    Doom. As mentio...
