    Looks intriguing, thinking about brewing one of these myself. Sorry I can't contribute more,
    although I assume the FG you mean it to be 1.029?

    Thought some more about it and I'll probably do this in a BIAB. The recipe would be based off
    of the original one posted here ( although I might fiddle around with some of the grains to
    reduce the am...

    Looking at creating a recipe for a Bourbon County Brand Stout clone. Part of that is converting
    from a 5-gallon to a 1-gallon primarily for testing purposes.Do I simply just divide the
    ingredient quan...

    Hey Sir Humpsalot- just wondering how it's come along so far 2.5 months later. Are you still

    IME, there is a big difference between 60 and 75. Higher temps lead to more fusels which five
    nasty headaches. You will also get more ester production. Low temps will take a little longer,
    but will gi...

    I recently had a glass of BCBS on tap and it reminded me how damn good these are. I've hoarded
    a couple bottles and they're sitting in my closet. But these were pretty hard to get my hands
    on- had to ...

  • Posted in thread: Question about timing of bottling on 12-16-2012 at 08:30 PM
    Just took another SG. Same as before, 1.012. But it feels like it's matured. Doesn't burn going
    down. A little more boozy than I'm used to for a hefe but my OG was a bit high for the recipe.
    Still, I ...

    Wow it is a delicious brew. Very well balanced yet the aroma is a sweet hoppiness. Love it and
    am hoping my 2 cases of IPA that I brewed after that turn out just as well!
