Posted in thread: Marinating with Spent Hops on 12-02-2013 at 10:39 PM
I have tried cooking with them before, and feeding them to my goat. The food was terrible, and

minutes, and al...

Your goal is to get the good sugars locked inside the grain out, and water at the right temp

well for me....
Posted in thread: Can I add lemongrass to the keg?? on 08-17-2013 at 06:23 AM
You can add the tea, but I generally don't. I'd boil it real quick to de-aerate it. Usually I

Posted in thread: PID Controller Option? on 08-16-2013 at 02:38 AM
