    Roasted malts, especially chocolate malt, can vary considerably based on origin/maltster. I
    like to use a darker chocolate malt for this recipe. That should help. For the hops, I don't
    know why your n...

    Yeah, I also thought their choices were kind of odd for summer. I can't imagine drinking a milk
    stout out on the beach ("Milk was a bad choice!"). I would say about half of them were
    certainly reasona...

    I just finally rebrewed this last week following the all-grain recipe exactly as written, but
    with a large starter of Wyeast American Ale II. I'm taking a gravity sample today after work
    and will post...

    I like to add 3oz of Ghirardelli cocoa powder with 5-10 min left in the boil to add a chocolate
    flavor that blends really well with my porter. You could try that.

    Redbridge is pretty good in my opinion. As they have a partial ownership in Goose Island, I
    would say Goose Island makes some pretty good stuff.As far a Lager's go, I enjoy Land Shark
    Lager.. If it wa...

  • Posted in thread: Beer tastes stale even when fresh. Why? on 04-05-2012 at 06:42 PM
    If I had to make an educated guess, I'd say you are likely getting a bit of DMS due the lack of
    a good, strong boil, which is resulting in the stale off-flavor.That was my guess. Everything
    else seems...

    Its more of a brewing practice to use yeast nutrient, so many brewers who actually use nutrient
    don't list it in their recipe. Actually, the word recipe is often misused in the brewing world
    - many pe...

    I just drank my last bottle from when I was brewing one gallon batches at the beginning of last
    year. It was amazing! That was also when I was learning about flaked barley. A pound goes into
    any brew ...

    The Denny's yeast is key. Just sayin. I love it for all stouts/porters.
