My first two attempts used Amarillo, but I'm going to try brewing it with Palisades next time.
The OG you shoot for will depend on the yeast you use in order to end up with a 6% ABV result.
My recipe ...

I've been experimenting with alternatives to corn sugar for bottle conditioned beer.I like
bottles because they are portable, self-contained single serving containers. When I bottle, I
feel like I'm p...

I meant "caramel-y-ness". In case there is such a word, it should be spelled correctly, at

Hmm. I did a similar experiment making a DFH 60 Min clone without crystal, substituting Munich
instead, and it turned out quite different than my prior attempt, which was pretty close to the

I like your idea of carb'ing at lower volumes, but some of my beers are perfect at 2.3. A bit

maple syrup takes...

I have a recurring problem with bottle conditioned beer. 4-6 weeks after bottling, the
carbonation is perfect, yet another month or so, and it starts getting waaay too fizzy. I don't

I meant the freezer for 30 minutes. Duh. Why is it my errors only show up after I post? :)

Yeah, I can put any of my bottle-conditioned beers in the fridge for 30 minutes and they'll
pour crystal clear. But if I leave them in the fridge for a day, they cloud up with a protein
haze. My quest...
