    No data to back this up, but I thought I read somewhere that swing top bottles like Grolsch
    could actually hold more pressure than the standard 12 oz longneck (although nowhere near what
    a Belgian or ...

    oopsI did have a laugh at Swans supporters singing either "He's one of our own" or "He scores
    when he wants" (depending on who's report you read, probably both).That was unpleasant and his

    Adventures in Homebrewing looks to carry Munton's mild ale malt as well. I'm thinking of just
    oven kilning some MO for a short amount of time to be honest, since I have a sack of it and I'm
    on a grad ...

    Kill it with fire. And I don't mean a propane burner and kettle. I mean set the pumpkins on
    fire and throw them out of an airplane rather than brew with them.

    For the record, the English maltsters I know and love (Crisp and Thomas Fawcett) don't seem to
    produce it according to their website. Neither does Bairds or Simpsons. At least not according
    to any of ...

    Hey folks who actually know and brew these styles who's opinions I trust-Any recommendation on
    a source/malster for Mild Malt available in the US? I know that Briess makes a "Mild" malt, but

    Just for my education at this point, it is really more of high temperatures for long periods of
    time that will be bad for it right? I just want to make sure I am not one of those people.High

    Rather than just getting into a whole debate on race theory (which obviously belongs in the
    debate section), I find it odd and unfortunate that despite the fact that historically women
