  • Started extract brewing back in the early 90's, from a startup kit at a LHBS. Been wanting to go AG for years, and finally jumped in with both feet in April 2009. Bought a 10 gal. boil kettle and converted a 10 gal. Igloo orange cooler with a false bottom for my mash tun. Been brewing an AG brew every month, and loving the new results. Recently upgraded again to a brewstand and 10-gal batches!

    No need to pasteurize the honey.. it's low moisture content means nothing for stray microbes to
    live on.. plus after active fermentation, the ale yeast and alcohol level will keep any strays
    at bay!

    Hey all, Just an update for gruit fans out there. My Belgian inspired gruit came out with a
    little too much going on. I got bold with some new herbs, and also picked up some secondary

    I like bobbrews recipe above! :mug:Remember to use rice-hulls when mashing so much wheat to
    avoid stuck mash/lauter. Also, mash low (148F - 150F) to keep it very fermentable! With WLP001
    or US-05, you...

    Looks delicious!My only question is about using the Summit hops at flame-out as opposed to
    using them for bittering. Its a high-alpha, low-cohumulone hop .. and you have so much good
    flavor combos goi...

    Buckwheat honey is known for a strong flavor. Although I've not tried it myself, the reports
    make me think it may be too 'out there' for your brew... unless you really want to go crazy!

    B-Brite is an oxygen based cleaner. I looked around and most of them do recommend to rinse

    on rinse vs. n...

    Thanks for the suggestion DeathBrewer. I had not thought about that aspect of the dried
    hibiscus flowers.To check it out, I measured out 4g of flowers for 4oz cup (approx. strength of
    suggested 4.4 oz...
