jtejedor, thanks for the feedback! How much roasted malt would you add to this recipe and how
far in to the mash would you add it? Why didn't you have it in for the full rest? Would it have
been too r...

long. It c...

Just got a bottle and it appears like there is some yeast at the bottom. Anyone else notice
