Wait, what if you have a gluten allergy are you saying you can still steep barley grain??

Good point on growing them separate just to be safe. My initial plan was to let the JP ferment
the batch by itself anyway, until the graverhopke piqued my curiosity. Maybe I'll start that
one up separ...

Thanks for the feedback. So the issue of stepping up being that it'd throw off the balance of
sacc to bugs? Guess I didn't think that through fully. Last time I played with JP dregs I
combined with a ...

Ok so I've got a starter going from Jolly Pumpkin dregs, it's been going a little over a week
and has a nice krausen going. I had planned to just step this up once and pitch it, but while
out tonight ...

Turned out quite deelish if I must say. If you crack the seeds (like you're supposed to) I

toss the whole...

Yeah I guess we'll see how it turns out, I'm not a big coriander fan myself but used .5oz

I've brewed this one which is a simple but solid recipe, was a big hit. If you're looking for a

SRM. Mashed ...

Posted in thread: first multi-step mash, overshot my target temp on 05-29-2012 at 09:08 PM
Yeah, in hindsight I probably could've stirred it around better and taken a couple more
readings in different spots. Or at least, that's what I'll chalk it up to if it ends up
fermenting down to the e...
