Posted in thread: Effects of an extra long boil? on 10-07-2014 at 04:34 PM
I brew several very long boil beers and there are distinct and drastic changes that occur in a
long boil. 2 hours is not a long boil though, so blast away. If you are curious here are the
changes I no...

Considering that you're crafting a brown porter recipie based on pale malt I don't think that
brown malt is going to be as critical. You're color will end up brown and should have some nice

It was a solid american barley wine (still have a few bottles left), but didn't match troegs

I haven't noticed anything like that, though I don't think I have nearly as much data as you.
Since you've already averaged all the efficiencies, can you maybe calculate a standard
deviation for each ...
