I'm also a supporter of the blonde ale with lemon. I made one with honey malt and lemon that
was a bit lighter and had more lemon flavor than sam summer but was a real crowd favorite. For
the dark, I'...

Thanks for the suggestions. Since I hear the notty happily bubbling away I think I'll just let

From reading some other posts it looks like I either needed to give the starter more time, or

I rack to fermenter currently and wouldn't mind doing that still. Good idea about the HLT. The
pot also looks tall (but I don't have the dimensions) so I might have some extra space for

So I've been wanting to slowly transition to AG equipment. I started about a year ago with
extract batches and went to PM shortly after. I'm still using the starter equipment with a 5
