This turned out very good. My friend did 10 gal and I did 5 gal. We both went a step further
and bourbon oaked in the secondary. I can tell you that he did not add coffe at bottling, and I
did, and in...

Oh, so I just realized you haven't brewed it yet. Check the mash efficiency in beer smith, and
if you think yours might be low, go a touch higher with your base malt. Mine turned out great
using 18.5 ...

Hi Big Red! Ok, so I decided to check the forums tonight, because I moved this recipe from the

Hi all, So I moved to all grain and brewed a founders breakfast stout clone, a smash with
cascade hops, and a red ale IPA. One thing seemingly obvious is there is a lot more trub loss

Moved mine to the secondary a few nights ago. OG was also 1.083 and the final was 1.023 and was

can tell the di...
