    yeah, i was just trying to use up my hops that were leftover from other batches. Not 100% sure
    on the amount of each type of hop because my scale wasn't level on the counter.

    For sure, 1 oz of golding at 4.9, probably .6 oz of fuggles at 4.2, and about .5 oz of saaz at
    8.9. Recipe called for 1.8 oz of golding at 5%. I was trying to use up some left over hops. The
    recipe is...

    So, I was brewing an oatmeal stout last night and discovered my scale was not sitting flat on
    my counter. The result is that I think I put in about two times as much hops as called for. Any
    ideas on w...

    works great and they come off real easy with water. hard to beat it.

    yeah, i tried the search but came up empty. Maybe I didn't use the magic words.:confused:

  • Posted in thread: spread brew day over two days? on 12-04-2008 at 11:13 PM
    Hey all, I'm planning on brewing a partial mash-oatmeal stout. Is there any downside to
    breaking the brew process down over two days? I was thinking about steeping the specialty
    grains and doing the m...

  • Posted in thread: boil over - cleaning outdoor burner on 10-31-2008 at 09:18 PM
    Well, I just had picked up a new banjo outdoor burner to boil my batches. I started making the
    NB Biere de garde in my 20 qt pot and when I went to add the last 4 lbs of DME, it boiled over
    like crazy...

    Well, I also e-mailed AHS and they responded that they'll send me a replacement pack and
