  • Posted in thread: Substituting Honey for Honey Malt on 07-16-2010 at 02:36 AM
    I used 4oz of honey malt in an IPA recently and it's definitely noticeable. The beer finished
    with a fairly low gravity of 1.010 but has a notable honey sweetness even though there's not

    I went with a 52qt square shaped cooler for my 5gal batches. The grain depth is adequate even

    You really go above and beyond for your fellow homebrewer! I had recently bought lime but could
    not glean enough information about its use to give it a try. Once again, thank you very much
    for everyth...

    The March 809 ones are around 6 gpm and work well for a 5-10 gallon batch. Scaling that up
