    Hi Brandon O,227 replies to this post!You've inflamed the forum with that topic :rockin:I was
    just wondering why do you steep with short time (30 minutes, as opposed to "usual" 1h) ?I'm not
    sure you w...

    It will be different, but not bad with the dark malt. The dark malt will impart a bit roastier
    flavor to the graff. I wouldn't worry about the torrified wheat. It's main purpose is to add
    some head re...

    I'm pretty sure the honey malt needs to be mashed to be converted because it doesn't have very
    much diastatic power to convert itself, but I could be wrong. Also, I usually add honey to the
    kettle at ...

    For a similar amount of rye or wheat, I've used 1/2 lb of rice hulls... I'm batch sparging in a
    Coleman cooler with a braided hose, and I haven't had a problem. How did I pick 1/2 pound? It
    was a 1 po...

    Why can't you do a full boil? I do in mine. Really have to watch for a boil over at hot break
    and watch how high your burner is cranked so you don't boil off too much. I start with about 6
    1/2 gallons...

    yeah dude, it does accentuate hop flavors, it just doesn't bring the malt flavor up enough to
    balance it out and make it taste good. that's what I think.Yo dude... so your grain bill for
    your IPA didn...

  • Posted in thread: Getting bored with 1056/001 any ideas? on 09-10-2011 at 12:02 AM
    I've had good luck with German Ale yeast. It's very clean. I think the Chico strains do a
    little better with higher temps and temp fluctuations, though. I would definitely recommend
    temp control with ...

    The only reason not to go bigger would be that as dimensions get larger things can get harder
    to fit places.My 5 gallon pot will get under the kitchen faucet. My 9 gallon I need to use the
    sprayer to ...

    I've been fortunate to not come across many wine snobs. But, I think that's due to the fact
    that Virginia is in an interesting situation with both a burgeoning craft beer community and a
    rapidly growi...
