Posted in thread: controlling both fridge and freezer separately? on 01-13-2016 at 08:39 PM
Every fridge I have ever seen cools the freezer section down really damn cold and occasionally
pumps cold air into the fridge section from the freezer. In this set up there is no way to
Posted in thread: Partigyle Recipe Question on 12-23-2015 at 09:10 PM
My suggestion would be to mash the base malt plus the crystal malts. Run that off into a kettle
(do the calculations for a no-sparge batch of the strong beer). Steep your .25 lbs pale choc,
and .25 lb...

early in the cou...

Lists like this are a dime a dozen, yes, but I still think they're fun and certainly generate

Posted in thread: What to brew with Irish Ale Yeast? on 08-28-2015 at 01:45 PM
