    I love this stuff. So drinkable, and the perfect hop aroma in my opinion. Stacks up well
    against some fan-favorite IPA's. I love the 15 pack cans - I go through them much faster than I
    should! Probabl...

    I would have to say Dogfish Head on this one. What I love most about them is that they take a
    lot of chances. I am a big Ommegang fan, but they don't like to 'color outside the lines' too
    much. DFH ta...

    3 Tier HERMS system with 15gallon MLT, HLT and BK. I could do with a 20G MLT for big beers,
    I've exceeded the 'can I mash it' threshold on some ambitious beers.

    Are there any commercially available beers which are similar in hop profile? I've never used
    Simcoe and want to get a taste of the flavor before brewing this up. Thanks!

    I brewed an 11 Gallon batch of what will be my Christmas ale on saturday.OG was 1.075. I made a
    3L starter with White Labs Burton Ale (wlp023). Used a step mash with a relatively long step at
    152. wor...

    So, to follow up on this thread, I am mashing right now, and I took some advice from this
    thread. I am keeping my HLT within 10 degrees of my target mash temp, and stepping the HLT temp
    up at the same...

    This article seems to suggest that you should be precisely controlling the HLT temp and
    constantly pumping the wort through in a HERMS system. That means that you are controlling the
    wrong component w...

    ...Do you have a controller that monitors the temp of the HLT where the HERMS coil is? My
    understanding of HERMS is that you should maintain that liquid in the HLT at a constant temp (I
    am not sure wh...

    Hi All,I've been brewing for a few years now, but I upgraded my rig a while back to a 3-tier
    HERMS setup, and so far I've only put a few brews through it. I'm still learning the AG
    process, and I have...
