Pretty cool set up though.

I guess it depends on how cold your kitchen is. Room temp has always worked for me, but the
house doesn't go below 68 in the Winter, because the wife would freeze to death or so she says.
Could you do...

I used it in a Mild that I have had in the keg for about 2 weeks and it definitely dropped
extremely clear. I can't speak to the attenuation, because I dropped my hydrometer, but my Mild
has almost 20...

I actually mash my Pale at 158 and use Golden Promise as the base malt just to get some more
body into it. It is 4.5% with only a small bittering charge followed up by everything else at

I only usually hear of people using their homegrown hops at the end of the boil, because they

that is t...

I am pretty sure we go to the same LHBS and I inquired how they treat their water and at the

Unfortunately, I only have the Columbus and Willamette. I am doing a BIB, so I thought about

My LHBS left off my EKG portion of my recipe and I didn't realize it, until I was already down
the road. It isn't convenient for me to head back there this weekend, so my option for what I
have at hom...
