    hand at capturing the "spirit" of tequila in an ale.(please forgive the pun, I couldn't resist)
    I'm going ...

    Currently I have an experimental nutella stout sitting in my carboy and, unlike most
    ingredients, the hazelnuts are refusing to sink to the bottom. I already dealt with the hell of
    transferring from t...

    I did end up doing it. It is still fermenting/clearing, but it smells very nice. I used a type
    of rose preserve, as well as a small amount of rose water. At first the smell was overpowering,
    but a lot...

    Well, it has been a few weeks since bottling, and I would call this a succesful experiment. The
    wormwood aroma is only really present in the first few sips, and seems to be carried away with
    the CO2, ...

    I'm making a sparkling wine and I want to be able to get rid of the lees without all of the
    work with degorgement. In the wine book I have the author mentions vintraps, which essentially

  • Posted in thread: Priming with fruit syrup on 02-19-2011 at 12:47 AM
    It's getting close to bottling time, and I am thinking of priming with the fruit syrup that I
    used to flavor this batch. It's a raspberry syrup, 50g of sugar per quarter cup, and the only
    ingredients ...

    Yeas, the sahti was flavored entirely with dried juniper berries that I crushed before adding
