My first attempt at this went pretty smooth all things considered. I missed my mash temp by
about 3 or 4 degrees because of the pumpkin (certainly not used to compensating for that) but
no stuck sparg...

That's a good point about tasting it. It turned out to be fine. What I did figure out is this
was caused by the coagulation properties of WLP007. When a little CO2 bubble forms on the
bottom, a little...

I'm planning on brewing today. I noticed these bulb like things coming up from within the yeast

ruin my ii...

Hard to say with certainty from the video, but you're right it does seem quite fast... Did you

I opted for the MM2 pretty much because I didn't see myself needing 2" rollers. I haven't had a

Posted in thread: Graff (Malty, slightly hopped cider) on 01-09-2012 at 11:59 PM
Just made this last night. I had a bit of a brain fart and dumped a full oz of hops in instead

bit to com...
