I just brewed an 11 gallon batch today. 2oz of ginger cubed and 2.5oz of cinnamon sticks (8
sticks). I also added 1/2tsp of nutmeg with 10 min left in the boil. It was very fragrant

I recently brewed a milk stout ( I did a 10 gallon batch with 2lbs lactose (. I split the
batch into 5 gallons with just milk stout, and the other 5 I added chocolate nibs. I haven't
worked with the ...
Posted in thread: Back sweeten with preserved juice? on 10-08-2013 at 11:55 AM
That makes sense to me. I would think that if you chill the cider, and then add the preserved
