Interesting I also had a senior project related to brewing in which we built a malter. What was
the budget on your project?

I wasn't sure where to post this, but thought you homebrewers might be interested. It's my

I've gotten 69% attenuation on a 1.039 OG bitter. I haven't bottled yet but the samples from

I used some oak chips in a blackberry wine and they sunk pretty quickly. I used 7g of medium

carboy to throw some unmashed 2 row and maris otter on and let go in a 1 gal. carboy. It's

If the blackberries are added after primary fermentation has subsided will the yeast start up

Thanks for the wheat suggestions, but I really want a beer to age, plus my first beer was a
wheat beer. I'll probably go with a robust port with the berries assuming I can collect 30+
