    Swankyswede, do you recall how this beer turned out? I made a batch yesterday that is very

    froot loops. ...

    It's helped my brew award winning beer by making sure I hit accurate mash temps more
    easily.That's fantastic! A more controlled process gives more predictable results. I live in
    the wildly swinging te...

    I'm fortunate that I live a 10-minute walk from my LHBS, so I usually buy all my ingredients
    there. Prices are slightly higher, but the service is great. I was in there trying to build a

    cross between a ...

    +1 to the Palo Santo. One of my favorite beers ever, though don't think it really counts as a
    brown at 12%. Worldwide Stout is fantastic as well but no idea if you can get that in
    California.Palo Sant...

    I did a DFH Theobroma-inspired brew with honey, ancho chile, and cacao nibs earlier this year.
    The chilies I soaked in vodka for a few weeks, then added the liquor at bottling to taste. The
    cacao nibs...

    Personally I love BA and the work they do. I just have an issue with people who will drink

    who really detes...
