    Did you use too much coriander, and boil it for too long? It can be a little weird if you use
    too much.Also, the higher the temp with a belgian yeast, the more funky, banana-y, clovey smell
    you're goi...

    Pumpkin!there was a pumpkin saison recipe on an episode of the brew session that sounded really
    good. I'm thinking about trying it out.

    I don't think you made that very clear in your first post. I also recommended reading up on
    hopbursting, not just going out and doing it.Sounds like people were trying to say (and
    assuming you didn't ...

    I do partial mash recipes with a bit of extract. My rules for using extract are pretty
    simple...1. Only use light, extra light, or wheat extract. Dark malt seems to be more sensitive
    to boiling, espec...

    This is a 3 gallon recipe BTWIt's nice to see more people doing 3 gallon batches. My method
    improved tremendously after switching to 3 gallon batches. I did a full boil, used less
    extract, and had bet...

    Mttfrog,How did your sauvin/summer hopped ale come out?It turned out great. I'm getting mostly
    fruity aroma, with only a little grapefruit bitterness. Less grapefruit and more of a
    fruity/flowery arom...

    A lot of people strain through a mesh bag as they pour into the fermentor. I think some people
    will use paint strainers to get even smaller particles out but I've never used them.I've never
    strained b...

  • Posted in thread: Full Blichmann Advantages vs BIAB on 06-10-2013 at 05:31 PM
    For a 3 gallon batch, a BIAB would be a very reasonable alternative for someone like me. For an
    11 gallon batch, not so much!I agree. I've been brewing 5 gallon partial mash batches with
    about 5lbs of...

    I just did one based on the cottage house saison.Try flaked spelt. I tried a variety of saisons
    and the one I like best (new holland golden cap) is the only one that used spelt instead of
    regular whea...
