    Well last night I finally popped the top on the first of these puppies. They have been
    conditioning away for > 2 months at about 55*.The bad news is that when I popped the top, it
    was a gusher. The go...

    OK, after two weeks in the bottle when I first taste-tested this brew I noticed that it was
    very twangy, and had an almost metallic taste to it. It was puckery-dry too, so I decided to

    I too have noticed the BIG beer gets BIG scores. When I come across a beer I haven't had I
    check out the ratings, but I take those ratings with a grain of salt, afterall, nobody know
    what I like more ...

    I used this yeast for My Nut Brown Ale/ and like the above poster I got great advice from Bob.
    I did not make a starter (didn't have any DME on hand--has since been rectified). It took a

    How much salt are we talking? And what kind? I use an immersion chiller and an ice water bath
    but it still takes 30 minutes. I'd like to try this.30 minutes? That seems a bit long for an
    ice bath/IC c...

    Holy cow!100% Munich LME ranges from $36-$45 for 8.8 lbs. It looks like AHS has 40% Munich for
