Posted in thread: SMaSH Ideas for Golden Promise? on 08-01-2015 at 03:21 PM
As a SMaSH with wlp029? I think I would go Willamette, to about 30-35 ibu with 80% of the ibu
in the last 20 min.
Posted in thread: Substitute for ESB Pale Malt (Gambrinus) on 08-01-2015 at 03:11 PM
ESB is a higher dextrine malt like mild malt, flavor wise its solid UK type flavor. MO will be

Wtf is on Wed night this year. The big complex might be open, I drive by it a few times a week.

Posted in thread: good 20-30 gallon fermenters for bulk aging sours? on 07-18-2015 at 04:18 PM
