I personally don't care for them. To me, they just have a generic, citrusy American hop flavor,
which is great if that's what your going for. I do like them as a base for more interesting
Posted in thread: 3724 + 3711 combo on 02-13-2014 at 05:33 AM
Personally, I'd just save the 3711 for another beer. Depending on the size of your starter and
the temps of your fermentation, the 3724 should make short work of a 1.030 wort. Hell, that's
where a lot...

I think that whey is great when making porridge-like starches: risotto, polenta, grits, etc.
Give them a nice tartness.

Well, I don't cook any other crystal malts, but I do grind them, so I will continue to treat
Golden Naked Oats in this manner.

I've done something very similar (.5#carawheat and 4oz chocolate wheat malt with the same
amount of munich and dark wheat, similar IBUs and same yeast). The dark wheat and munich are
both fairly low i...

Long story. I was growing hops in large planters on my balcony in Richmond, VA, before moving
to Philly two years ago. Cut down the hops, brought them with us, even though we wouldn't have
an outdoor ...
