Did you use black patent malt or unmalted barley? The one time I tried black patent in a beer I
got a super smokey/charry taste. Reading other reviews the vanilla tends to vanish from the
taste on thi...

After 2 months, my batch has taken on an almost smoky flavor. Nothing like the terrible
Campfire beer I had a couple years ago, but it definitely has taken over as the main flavor

Mine finished like your previous batch did, at 1.010. Yeast are organic, and getting an

bottling bucket. I've never had a problem with inconsistent carbonation, except with bottles
that have been l...

Shoot. I'm 98% sure I forgot to give everything a little stir after siphoning to disperse the
priming sugar. I added the priming sugar solution to the bottom of the bottling bucket, so I'm

It made its way down to 1.012 so I bottled my batch tonight. Tastes good, but still a little

This brew bubbled the airlock fairly consistently for a full 6 days before finally slowing down
yesterday. I'm going to let the temperature rise back to room temperature of the basement while
it sits ...

Its been awesome! I have logged probably 10 brew sessions on it since it was built. Its holding
up very nicely! The only thing I would change is still the placement of the control panel. I
