  • I got into homebrewing after a friends' brother told me about his operation. Also when my appreciation of micro-brewing was blossoming via an internship in Boulder, Colorado. And I must mention here that Alton Brown's episode of Good Eats: Amber Waves, was an inspiration that I still look upon fondly even if it is fraught with misnomer.

    how did this one work out?Was the 30 day primary fermentation noticeable in taste in the
    finished product? Seems long to have it sitting on its trub, but would be convenient for me to

    Mine is totally ready to bottle. Im gonna take your advice and assume the yeast count is still
    active despite adding about 2 shots worth o the 40% Jameson Irish whiskey. Like you, I used the

    There are a few issues I had that would make for an inconsistency to your results, one being
    boil size (too low), the other being that i did not see the 5 and a quarter gallon batch size.

    Thanks for the update! I also brewed this last weekend, and had some changes to be made due to

    Thanks for the timely response! I pushed this one back to next weekend as well, glad I saw you
    change something in the recipe. Why might I ask are you taking out the flaked barley? Just to
    switch it o...

    Going to try this one, this weekend. Gonna add some Jameson whiskey soaked oak chips. Is this
