    I got some home grown hops from a friend of a friend before moving. I just got the chance to
    use some last night and boy did they smell great. There were these hops labeled simply "GN"
    that smelled ci...

    I was looking for a reading list of books to take my brewing and knowledge to the next level.
    I'm an engineer, but not a chemist/biologist, so technical works are appreciated, but I might

    My only seasonal brews are for the New York Rangers. So I'll brew a home beer and an away beer
    in time for the first games. Normally I like to do a winter grand cru and brew in
    November/December and b...

    of ball lock kegs and I was wondering if there is a functional difference, or any reason I
    would want on...

    10 min is too early for chai/tea additions. Think of it as a cup of tea, you wouldn't steep it
    for 10 min. I'd suggest flame out at the earliest, or preferably an infusion or "dry hop" it

    It has a bit of residual spiced sweetness to it. Certainly no more spiced then the
    pre-fermented levels, so not all that strong, but noticeable. In short, throw some yeast in,
    you can't go wrong.

    I've done a chai-ed porter using actual chai tea. First off, chai is inexpensive enough that
    it's a good way to go if you want that flavor (a plain, loose chai shouldn't be more than $5-10
    for 2 oz). ...

    Yes, I've used it to make cider. It comes out tasting of spices. Its decent, but not really
