    Grind finer, get a second 5g cooler, line your coolers with 5g paint strainer bags (kinda like
    a mini BIAB).Heat your strike and sparge water in a kettle, then pour into the coolers for
    mash. When you...

    2nd the brown malt suggestion. Personally, I'd up the gravity and the IBUs. Doesn't seem very
    robust to me. I just did one with an 1.065 OG and IBU closer to 45.

    I've never boiled longer than 60 minutes on any of me darker Belgians. I'd say only a Tripel
    would need a 90 minutesDMS doesn't affect dark beers?

    Good choice. 3787 is similar and will be a little dryer and fruitier. 1214 or 3522 Ardeness are
    also nice for dubbels. White Labs 545 made a good one for me but there isn't a Wyeast
    equivalent.

    Pilsner has a lower diastatic power for conversion, buts its fine as you don't have a lot of
    other grains to make up for. You should do a full rolling 90 minute boil though to drive off
    DMS, even with...

    The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins by Leonard NimoyGah! You beat me to it. FYI - Wreck of the Edmund
    Fitzgerald might actually be strangely interesting.Seems like a good place for this one, not
    sure why. I'm...

    I'd keep it super simple and use all Belgian pale malt, ~1.070 and take it down to 1.010 or
    lower. Mash at 149ish. Use Tettnanger or Styrian and Saaz hops. WLP500, WLP510 or WLP550 and
    ramp the temps ...

    Brewing 11g of my Witch Hunter Light (1.070, down from 1.104) porter right now. Just hitting
    boil. Using my new arborfab.com hop basket, so happy I could just pee. Two gallon jug starters
    of WLP007 wa...

    I bought a dedicated metal garbage can. Complete peace of mind be ause no rodent is going to
    chew through that. Plus, the lid fits pretty tight. I doubt it's airtight, but it's close.
