Keep us posted on the beer, and keep the ferment temps low. I like the grain bill.Thanks. Will
do. I usually ferment lagers 48-50. Sound about right?

It's that time of year. I thoroughly enjoyed this thread last year, and brewed something closer

How you handle your genitals aside, different carbonation levels from the same batch is a

I once made a brew with Canadian Pale Ale malt and Special Roast 50, and the judges were quite

low strength Bitters and 1.012 to 1.014 for strong Bitters. 1469 is also a fairly low
attenuator. For my ...

I've been brewing for 5 years and never done an English Pale Ale. I get brewing ideas in my

With all of that said, I've brewed this recipe twice. Both times I sized it for 1.090 (90% of

same and the F...
