    I've never brewed with someone else participating, and it's never been an issue. In fact, the
    best batch I've made yet was when I had the house to myself the night before (for prep), and
    the actual br...

    Something that just occurred to me that I like about my LHBS' loyalty program is, I don't need
    to keep a card in my wallet. They use my phone number, so as long as I'm still able to remember
    that, I'm...

    +1 to the specialty grains by-the-oz. My LHBS has a bunch of those larger plastic jugs, and
    they keep them in those, so they can easily dispense small amounts as needed.

    My LHBS is awesome, and there's not really anything more I'd ask of them. They carry a good
    amount of specialty grains, hop selection is solid, and they sell nearly all the hardware I
    need. I only ord...

    Thanks fellas! It's a great malt to use in a SMaSH to fully experience that rich malt character
    that everyone raves about.mmiddleton, could you describe the difference you noticed between the
    Vienna a...

    That's really interesting! I've used Maris Otter a few times in a Mosaic SMaSH recipe, and I've
    always been very happy with the results. Made the same recipe with Vienna, wasn't as happy with
    it.

  • Posted in thread: What are your contrarian/"unpopular" beer opinions? on 02-08-2017 at 07:28 PM
    Spoken like a guy that has never pulled a pint.If you mean at home, that's 100% correct.
    Outside of the home, I've pulled a few, though I'm certainly no expert.To be clear, I'm not
    against other peopl...

    Not really contrarian but most of the joy I get from homebrewing is actually because it does
    take a long time... spending 5 hours on Saturday cooking up 2.5 gallons of wort using grains
    and hops makes...

  • Posted in thread: Your all time fave recipe - what is it? on 01-31-2017 at 07:59 PM
    I've only made it once, but it's definitely my favourite. I made a clone of Founders Breakfast
    Stout, with a couple of modifications, and it was delicious. Even better, I racked off a
    growler of it wh...

  • Posted in thread: Maris Otter as base malt for stout? And other advice on 01-31-2017 at 07:50 PM
    For the coffee, I used Kicking Horse's Cliffhanger Espresso. Not sure if it's available in the
    US, but it's one of my favourite coffees.
