    Just bought the grains. Using phoenix hops which was the uk hops I had around. Not my favorite
    but should work well with the style. Using 1335 British ale 2 in this. Planing on using this
    batch to gro...

    Used this as a base for a pale I made. Edited the hope. Nugget to bitter, the citra, cascade
    and Amarillo in the boil. Dry hoped it yesterday with more citra. Was worried about the color,
    but compared...

    Bottled this yesterday. It was really nice. I edited the recipe a bit to shrink it to 3.5
    gallons and not have weird measurements. Also used Windsor yeast. Came out really nice. Mine
    was more stout th...

    Campfire stout is good. The restaurant I work at had it for a while. I spoke to the brewer one

    When I am making a small batch like that I just go with biab. Much easier then having multiple
    mash tuns in my opinion.

    So I went on the lagunitas tour today and at the end I was asking the guide some questions and
    smelling the experimental hop they were using. He told I could take a handful home with me so I
    grabbed a...

    Fill it up and boil some water in it. I let mine go for about thirty minutes. That will build
    up what you need.

    I do this from time to time when I want more grain then I can fit. Just pay attention to your
    water levels and be sure to allow enough time for two mashes and you should be fine.

    Sometimes I see things like this and feel spoiled. I live in the shadow of SN and can get pints
    of their regular offers for one to two bucks most nights. Other craft offerings are never more
    then five...
