  • Started with an all-extract kit for my first one, did two batches of extract + steeping, and then 20 some partial mash batches. All grain finally came in! Having done PMs for a couple years, it was only new equipment that took some getting used to. I use a 10gallon Rubbermaid beverage cooler outfitted with a stainless false bottom.

    Good idea, I'll have to pick up a stout similar to something I would brew and then rosemary
    that. I love to chew on fresh rosemary while in the garden. It would kind of be like dry
    hopping with a very...

    Has anyone brewed a beer with rosemary more than once? I ask more than once because it implies
    you liked the result enough to do it a second (or more) time. I'm considering a rosemary
    stout--I think t...

    We're on the same page with the attenuation. Curious to hear from more. What kind of yeast did
    you use in that brew?

    Curious to where people like target their American Barleywine FGs? Obviously a big part should
    be depending on where the OG starts. I haven't done any barleywines in the past and brewed up
    my first on...

    The blowoff had stopped as of this morning, but fermentation was still going hard. The worst
    part is loses of just over 1/2 gallon of beer. At the peak of fermentation (when the picture
    was taken) the...

    In the nearly sixty batches I've brewed I never have had blowoff like this. This is a 1.092
    barleywine with 2 packs of rehydrated Nottingham fermenting in the upper 60s. Only downfall
    loss of 1/3 of a...

  • Posted in thread: Belgian Cara 8 vs. Crystal 10? on 07-05-2013 at 03:42 AM
    It's a crystal malt with 6L color according to NB. So I'd say no, you'll never tell the
    difference, especially with 5% of it in the recipe and given the hoppiness of an APA.

    You mention liking a lot of commercial DIPAs, but they don't hold back the OG, they mash where
    they want, age in general isn't something that benefits the style (aside form short aging). The
