When do you measure your efficiency? IPAs especially can have great mash efficiency but
terrible brewhouse efficiency because the hops absorb so much beer. I had a beer that lost at
least 1/3 of its v...

To adjust the recipe, click on Recipe Tools, then Scale, then type 60 or whatever for Batch

APA/IPAs with Saison yeast (or American-hopped Saisons if you prefer) are good. Another option
is WY1318, an English yeast that can handle 75 degrees or so. It's extremely fruity, and not

Well, wild yeast could be just about anything. It will be a complete unknown in terms of

I'm amazed people buy jerseys that are essentially shirts with an ad for Mexican bread or a

95-100) with this and...

I recently made a Berliner with raw grain as my lacto source. The airlock went nuts; my gravity
dropped from 1.034 to 1.004. I think it's safe to say that whatever is in there didn't just

Posted in thread: SMaSH hops suggestions wanted on 07-08-2014 at 02:16 AM
Get something that's flvaorful enough to use as a late addition, and strong enough to use early

Don't I get any merit points for not acting like a clunge when we get a real troll? ;)Had to
