    Going to try the PM version of this tonight, only I have some amarillo to use up so I will
    probably sub it for the centennial (which is hard to find around here these days). Will post
    results when its...

    I'm a mead maker that has gotten into beer. I don't think there is any risk to my racking
    style. It's the keg I am unfamiliar with. I was just worried that A) I have messed up the beer
    or B) that the ...

    Its more of a matter of taste. No I didn't cold crash (my carboy does not fit in my keg
    fridge). The last few brews I just racked and racked and racked till clear, but I didn't want
    to do that with th...

    I am fairly new at brewing and have a question for the more experienced folk. How long did
    people leave it in primary, secondary? I left mine in primary for 15 days, secondary for 7 (dry
    hopping). Rac...

    Great first on the fly recipe. I agree with all the comments, the cinnamon might be powerful by
    the end. I would also echo fatblokes comment on extra honey. 1.080 will ferment really dry. You
    can use ...

    I don't want to plant any potentially harmful ideas in anyone's head) the berries of some
    juniper varieties are poisonous. So please don't go around tasting random berries unless you
    know they're ok f...

    Took another taste of this one. Wow... its coming along nicely. It is still really jet fueled,
    gotta be super high ABV (although my gravity readings are a mess for this one so I can't be
    sure). There ...

    As the last few drops are coming out of my keg now I want to say how impressed I was with this
    recipe. It is a wonderful brew, thanks to the OP.Next time I would cut down on the coffee and
    maybe incre...

    Just tasted this one last night. After seven months in the carboy it is starting to taste
    really nice. I think part of my problem earlier (and why I had to age so long) was that I used
    really tart jui...
