I just bottled what I consider a great stoudt and use 1 oz of Willamette for bittering. I grew
it myself so I had to use it............worked!

It does taste good. What if I just use another vial of the same yeast and prime with corn
sugar?? Too much too late?

Sample is what I expected it to taste like...a little sweet with a Guiness bitterness I like.
It is a bit heavy tho

I have good stoudt that appears to have stopped fermenting. In primary for about 10 days,
transferred to secondary for about 15 days. No signs activity since moving into secondary. OG

I didn't think it was malted.....oatmeal isn't either but I'ved used that
successfully....wonder what the difference is???Thanks

It is barley without the hulls....i think it is processed as a cereal but without
additives....similar to what htey do with oatmeal????

Has anyone used pearled barley in lieu of malted barley grains? I have a large amount of it
available to me and am wondering if it's worth trying a batch with it ( I know....always worth

Hobbits seem to be simple people...I think a porter or a mild english ale would be their staple

This is a little funny....I used a 30 caliber gun cleaning pad and additonal ramrod pieces
together....well, it worked! Good on guns too of course

The cloth bags I used for steeping work well with a rolling pin....I did that ONCE...only once!
