    There can be a great variation among the categories, particular with the changes to the 2015
    Style Guidelines, but I think with a view towards lagers/pilsners, something can taste great

    I've got the 55 gallon G2 kettles with one element in each for brewing 1bbl batches. Other than

    Purging of the secondary with CO2 is primarily used to preserve the delicate hop profiles of
    hoppy beers. I do this for DIPAs as a regular procedure...occasionally with others. Once i
    bought a second ...

    I live in Colorado Springs and get the majority of my grains from Old West Homebrew. If I want
    a White Labs Yeast, I hit fermentations. Also hit up High Country Homebrew in Monument on
    occasion (they ...
