    Sweetwater IPA is one of my favorite beers - maltly and sweeter than most IPA's and very well
    balanced with tons of fresh hop flavors. It's from Atlanta but it's widely distributed so
    should be able t...

    Can you calibrate the thermapen?Not a real calibration, but it has a trim adjust where you can
    set it to add or subtract a set amount from every reading, up to plus or minus 3.6ºF.I think
    you could ca...

    Thermapen, hands down winner. I use it at so many points in the process from mashing to cooling
    to checking fermentation temps. It's so nice to have an instant accurate read on temperatures.

    While I'm not much of a beer snob, I just found out yesterday that I'm a gummi bear snob after
    tasting the bears made in Germany for the German market (Goldbären). I couldn't believe the
    difference in...

    No idea on the brewpubs, but don't miss out on trying the Sweetwater IPA if you've never had it
    before. Not sure if others like it as much as I do, but it's fantastic stuff - sweet, thick,
    and loaded ...

    Great story and a perfect title - I know I went back and forth a couple times between the two
    and as you say, only time will tell ;) My favorite part is noticing there is 1.5 litres space
    left in the ...

    I agree there's no way a home freezer is going to chill that amount of liquid in the time the
    main wort is boiling, and that an immersion chiller is a better solution (even though I'm still
    ice bath c...

    Other than that it looks good right?It depends on your efficiency. To hit 1.050 using the
    converted recipe, brewhouse efficiency would need to be about 69% (based on a volume of 7.5gal
