    I experimented with a coffee stout using half a lb of whole beans like steeping grains in the
    boil, and adding a 2 quarts (mad with half a lb of grounds) of cool brewed coffee to the
    fermenter with th...

    I did a four-five gallon batch (meant to be 5 but I underestimated absorption/evaporation, and
    then didn't bother to add top-off water to the fermenter) BIAB in my 15.5 gal keggle with no
    issues. I us...

    Hmm, if it was only one or two I was going to suggest alternatives, but the combinations of

    This board has been invaluable to my beginning and growth as a homebrewer. I've been a member
    for 10 months (lurked a bit before that) and only have only made 5 posts because EVERY single
    time I had a...

    a space in your kettle issue?

    I was doing extract for while and moved to BIAB as the next step. It was a relatively
    inexpensive (about $100) and easy transition, plus the beer came out great!I already had the
    big ticket items like...

    I strongly second DBGB. As far as beer spots go I also really like Jimmy's No. 43 (good
    selection and has a little history behind the space) and Little Town NYC (they serve only in
    state brewed beer I...

    When I bottle primed I just used the recommended 1 1/3 teaspoon.I prefer batch priming, but
    either works in the short term. In the long term you will batch prime. :)What is the basis for
    your concern?...

    I've been lurking on here for about a week and I have a couple of questions. I started my very
    first batch with MrB and the WCPA. I just hit the 14 day mark and I'm ready to bottle.1) I plan
    to pick u...
