grain bill I use 7.5 gallons or so, with a lot of draining/squeezing to extract as much wort as

Yesterday I got an email from NB touting these. Not two hours later I got an email from Midwest
for the exact same thing. Just a coincidence, I guess.
Posted in thread: I get to brew for my wedding! on 11-26-2013 at 03:12 PM
I did this for my recent wedding in October. For roughly 50 guests, of which around 25 would be
drinkers, I made 3 batches (6 cases). Pale, brown, and cream ales. They all got rave reviews
but the PA ...

I haven't had a chance to try this one yet. That brew was going to be for my wedding, so I
chickened out and went with my usual IC routine. That beer turned out great and two cases were
emptied in no ...

mash-out on effi...

experience: I brewed a batch of Pale Ale for a wedding (my wedding, no less). When I bottled
it, I was very w...

Welcome. I'm also in Carroll County, close to Eldersburg. While I agree that you don't need to
