  • Current brewing gear is a 10 gallon round cooler/mash tun, 8 gallon kettle, and a propane burner. I did BIAB for a while, and now I've repurposed the bag I used for that as a hop bag. Of course, I frequently forget to use the bag and end up with lots of loose hops in my kettle that also get into the fermenter. Oh well, every once in a while I remember to use it.

    I've used it in a robust porter. I think it added some depth to the flavor.

    Very cool. I guess they know the fermentation is the main thing that makes their beer special,
    so the grain bill and other ingredients aren't so important to keep secret.Regardless, it is
    really cool.

    When I responded before I hadn't realized that your post was from a few weeks ago. Have you
    tried brewing this yet? Or are you still tweaking the recipe?After checking out the blog you
    linked to, I ha...

    I just had one of these last night and was thinking I'd love to clone it. Thanks for getting a
    good start on the recipe. I'll have to look at the blog you linked to when I get home later.
    But right no...

    A friend that works for Norton just gave me a copy of this book by William Bostwick. I've only
    read the introduction, so far, but I can tell it is a very well-written book. And I have a
    feeling it is ...

    I haven't actually tried the 15th anniversary. I haven't been able to find it in Denver, but I
    have access to Sublimely Self-Righteous Black IPA and it's one of my favorite beers.Well,
    seeing as I jus...

    Awesome. Thanks for the explanation of your process.I don't think I've been this paranoid about
    screwing up a beer since my first batch. :D

    So, do most people add the extra yeast at the same time as adding the priming sugar? Does the
    yeast get evenly distributed doing it that way?I've also heard about people adding yeast and
    some sugar a ...

    I've been pondering the same question. My first sour beer is about 13 months along and I'm
    trying to figure out how to go about being sure there is enough yeast to carbonate and still be
    careful about...
