  • Posted in thread: Toasting Oak Before OR After Soaking in Bourbon? on 08-13-2014 at 05:34 PM
    I'll keep the bourbon that it has been soaking in, toast them, and then add them back to the
    bourbon for a couple days. Worst case I can always add bourbon straight to the keg to kick up
    the flavor if...

    I've searched and haven't been able to find anything specific on this question (maybe I just
    missed it). I have some JD oak barrel chips that I'm currently soaking in bourbon. I'm planning
    to toast th...

    This last comment is slightly misleading. I know this is an old post, but I wanted to comment
    for future readers. They type of yeast can have a large impact on the fermentation temps. I
    have a belgian...

    sleewok - did you roast the nibs or use them as-is?Are the bins of cacao (not bags) roasted or

    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
    juice it would work out. The combination should keep any remaining yeast from gobbling up
    sugar. I may try...

    I just wanted to follow up on this recipe. This is by far one of my favorite IPAs. The flavor
    is extraordinary. Very balanced, not too bitter overall. It has a unique taste that really
    stands out (I'm...

    I brewed this bad boy a week ago, however, I messed up the boil time and only did a 75 minute
    boil (dropping in the initial hops right away). What kind of impact will this have on the final
    product? T...

    heating element portion. no worries (double thanks brewmcq). I do appreciate the link. I'm
    familiar with t...

    Very cool. Looks like something they would have used in medieval times... if they had
