NB may not make the greatest beers, but I feel they are often unique compared to much of what
you find on the market, if nothing else.Tripel is a good example of this. No, it's not a great

Check out the website: 5.6% abv; 21 IBU; pale, black, munich, and chocolate malts. Make your
own judgement on how to put all those together and i bet you come out with a great
"enlightened" black ale.

There is absolutely no reason for you to do a rest with malted wheat. I've done an infusion

On my first calculation using Daniels method I get %101 efficiency. You're actually pulling
sugars out of fat air. Maybe I should double check my math but why even bother?Probably Son of

This is fascinating, using the liqueur as priming sugar. Any guidelines on how to estimate the
correct amount among various types? I am a huge Limocello fan; could nicely compliment a wheat
or pale al...

2-row has nothing to do with the flavorless-ness of the American Light Lagers. Actually, if I
remember correctly, BMC usually use 6-row because it's slightly cheaper and with the amounts
they are usin...

I had a very good experience bottle conditioning my Winter Warmer last season with Frangelico.
I used 1 pint in place of the 5 oz. of corn sugar. The carbonation was perfect and the
Frangelico was ext...

OHIO, try using a European Pilsner malt instead of the 2-row. 2-row is what is used to make the
