    That's exactly what I was thinking when I threw the Mild into the mix. Seems like a nice mellow
    introduction; flavorful, but not overwhelming. I'll have to consider a bit... Thanks!

    Wow, quite an array of rapid responses; thanks to all!I had forgotten about BM's C3C recipe;
    that may have to bump something from the list. I'd love to do a lager, but simply lack the
    facilities for n...

    I'm providing beer for a wedding reception in January that will host upwards of 50-75 people,
    with the vast majority of the beer consumers present being unaccustomed to craft brews. What
    have folks ou...

    If you want the color to come in correctly, you'll have to either adjust the grain bill
    accordingly or leave it as dark DME. Either option is viable; you could just steep some roasted
    barley or carafa...

    For your first brew, I'd suggest just using a brew recipe kit (like one of the ingredient kits
    they link to on the page for your purchase there), as it is geared for beginners to get the
    ball rolling....

    I've done this for similar reasons before and never suffered ill-effects. It's not ideal, but I
    don't see any problem with it.

    Looks like a light stout? The bill looks reasonable, although I think I'd keep at least a
    little of the dark grains in the mash just to provide *some* roast (say, .5-1lb of the
    chocolate).I usually ad...

    The appropriate water ratio will depend on the type of recipe, total grain weight, etc. I'd say
    the majority of brewers pulling recipes from online are subsequently entering them into a
    brewing applic...

    I'd be concerned about the amount of bitterness you'll be getting out of a 2oz early addition,
    but I guess since the AA is a mystery, it's worth taking a chance. I feel like that much rye
    will compoun...

    I've had this happen a couple times--almost always with dark beers, naturally. My last IBA did
    exactly what you describe, and that was *with* a blowoff tube set up. I use almost exclusively
    buckets (o...
