I bought the maple syrup in Ohio at an Amish place, but I must admit that I didn't look

secondary (I have only...
Posted in thread: Pumpkin ale w/maple syrup on 11-15-2013 at 04:15 PM
I brewed a pumpkin ale that had 1 lb of maple syrup at flame out. After a week of primary, the
top looks like boiled caramel (the CO2 bubbles haven't broken with all of the syrup). Should I
go ahead a...

When a recipe calls for an add for 3 days and another (same add) for 3 days, do I need to rack

Posted in thread: Whitish Layer on top of secondary on 11-09-2012 at 01:06 PM
A friend sent me a picture of one of his batches with a film, but it looked different (covered
the entire top and seems bright white). Any thoughts on this one?

I racked my rye IPA into the bottling bucket yesterday after 2 weeks (dry hopped with cascade

before, but this...

Brewed a GL Christmas Ale Clone last Saturday. It calls for 2 cinnamon sticks and 1 oz of
