That's all the roasted I have. Is there another way to get that? I have plenty of black patent.
I could add more of that. Or can I toast/roast some two row? I also have some Munich. I really

So if I cut the cascade and amarillo in half, you think that would be more balanced? Are the
hop varieties OK? Thanks for your response.

Looking for your thoughts on an oatmeal brown ale. I know this won't be close to Surly Bender,

I might try toasting some. Would that help simulate MO? I toasted some for a 60-minute IPA

I'm trying to use what I have on hand to make a decent best bitter. I want a good beer, but I'm

Hannable, I found that link too. When he told me he found the recipe, I was excited, thinking
of Koch's (phony?) story of finding his grandfather's recipe. When I saw the recipe, I was

So a friend of mine stumbled on an old recipe in his grandmother's recipe book. It's for
bootleg beer from the 1920s. He'd like to try to make it. Here's what the recipe says:1 can of
