    secondary for a brown ale for a bit of pecan flavor but since you're using 2lbs here I wonder
    if it migh...

    and hit 1.085.I used a combination of brown paper bags and paper towels to soak up the oils.

  • Posted in thread: How much cold brew coffee? on 10-16-2015 at 02:42 PM
    When I used cold brew for my coffee porter, I started with about a quart of water (32oz), and
    8oz of ground coffee beans. After straining and filtering, I was left with a bit less than a
    pint of cold ...

    Using any Crystal malts at over 5% of your grist will clash with the hops. My preference is to
    drop the Crystal entirely in favor of something like Vienna. For my tastes, any DIPA over about
    8.5% star...

    first thing that jumps out to me would be to take out the crystal or at least cut it by a lot.

    Got my score sheet from Austin. My robust porter got a 38.5, which I'm happy with. It advanced
