If you're going to dump them in your grass, I would do it in the backyard (assuming you don't have a dog). I wouldn't want to run the chance of any of the neighborhood dogs getting to it on the...

I use medium toast American oak cubes in my RIS and barleywine. If you are planning to age on oak for several weeks/months I would NOT use chips. Go with cubes, or even staves. The chips impart...

I think you are going to need the 5 gallon pot. You need room for the full volume of water as well as all your grain...I don't think a 3 gallon pot will be enough space. You are also going to need...

Both a RIS and Barleywine are great candidates for oak aging. Those oak casks will impart the oak flavor very quickly due to the large surface area and it can be easy to over-oak, so be careful. 6...

The numbers sound about right for an Imperial Red. 12 punds of DME should get you in the 11% range, depending on where it finishes, and 11 ounces sounds reasonable.

What doesn't sound reasonable...

Are you using a hydrometer to check your gravities? My first thought would be to check it in distilled water to make sure it reads 1.000. It's hard to imagine that a brew with an FG of 1.004 would be...

I've found them to be really accurate...usually within 1-2 degrees of my digital probe. They can be a bit tricky to read as the color will "bleed" over several of the degree markers. They have...

I think it's fairly flexible right now, especially since it is not a clearly defined category. I too have had several examples that have quite a bit of roast to them. I prefer them on the not so...

In my opinion, plastic carboys are just fine...and much safer to work with than glass carboys. If I was aging something in excess of a year, then I would either go with glass, or my favorite is to...

Ideally you want your sparge water up around 170. This helps with extracting as much of the sugars as possible without extracting tannins from the grain husks. I suppose 140 would work, you just...

With an OG of 1.048, you will probably only need about a 1L starter. With a small starter like that I usually don't bother to decant (which is good since you don't really have time for that now)....

I add mine with about 10 minutes left in the boil. A fellow brewer I know prefers to add his post fermentation, this way he can control the sweetness to whatever level he wants. He boils the lactose...

The consensus seems to be that about 2 weeks is the max you want to leave your dry hops in. Beyond that and you can start to get some vegital off flavors. 5 to 7 days is my usuall dry hop schedule.

Depends on the yeast, but your right about the ideal temperature for most ale yeast. Give it a bit longer and you will probably see it take off. I do my IPA's at 62 to get a clean profile.

Most of the descriptions I see of columbus are pungent, dank, citrus. I get more of this along with some resin, rather than the pine.
