    Anyone out there tried the Mangrove Jacks specialty yeast line? I'm curious to see what anyone
    thinks of them compared to similar strains of Wyeast/White Labs.

    good tip. Thanks.Here are some accompanying comments with the last recipe I looked at. The
    recipe in question totaled about 7.6 lbs of grain:"77% efficiency with a no-sparge mashing
    technique (mashed ...

    No, its all grain. I run the grain calculations through beer smith and using a normal
    mash/mash-out/sparge process, I'll hit my target 4%. I doubt I'll ever go the massive
    water-ratio route, I was jus...

    I did think about that. however, I'm brewing 10-gal batches. I'd need to invest in a sizeable

    along with a recommend...

    I've read a couple of posts in forums and a few recipes touting the use of really high water to
    grain ratios (on the order of 2.5 gallons/1 lb of grain) in lieu of sparging.Thoughts?

    So talk to me about roasting. How long? How hot? Also does this go into the mash?

    All you 40-pound brains out there - I'm looking for some help. i want to set up a randalizer
    inside my kegerator to run my beer through hops, fruit, flowers, toy soldiers... whatever. I've
    got a good ...

    This is all outstanding information! Thanks. I will most likely go with harvesting from a new
