    I have a porter in the primary and after 4 days (4 EXTREMELY active fermentation days) I was
    considering slowly bumping up the temp from 60 to 70. I was very impressed with how the yeast
    handled 60 de...

    Dry is what I'm going for. I used an Irish yeast on my 1st attempt at a porter (can't remember
    the yeast brand), and it while it was enjoyable, it did leave a little more
    sweetness/esteriness on the p...

    WLP007 was the yeast I was planning on using. I'm glad to hear your success!

    Thanks. The recipe looks nice. How'd the S-04 work out for you? I tried it in an Irish Red

    I'm using Brown Malt for the first time and have recently read that some brown malt act a lot
    like crystal malt, but again, I have no experience with it. I recently posted a different
    question regardi...

  • Posted in thread: Can Brown Malt Convert Itself? on 08-14-2016 at 09:01 PM
    I'm building a partial mash porter recipe, and I'm not sure if modern day Brown Malt has enough

    For the coming Fall months (and they can't get here soon enough!) I wanted to make a SMASH
    (SingleMaltAndSingleHop) brew using oven toasted Maris Otter and Challenger hops. I would love

    Here's my latest Frankenstein idea. I have a water/lemon juice solution in my 2.6 gallon oak
    barrel to keep it preserved, and after trying the water, I thought it tasted pretty [email protected] good.

    I've heard many people share your opinion. I'm not sure if it's just my taste preference, but
    I'll routinely add up to a pound of honey malt in my 5-gallon batches of ipa's and pale ales.
    Thanks for t...

    I have a small, 2.6 gallon barrel that I wanted to age a strong wheat beer in, but I've only
    ever aged a barleywine, and my experience with wheat is limited. I'm looking for thoughts on my
    recipe.3 ga...
