Another thumbs up for the guy, Josh, who runs this shop. I spent 20 minutes or so picking his brain on Friday after work. He seems like a great guy. Josh used to be a teacher before getting into beer...

The beer overall is a tad sweet, not sure if the Dark Candi contributed to that at all as there was only 4 oz of it.

I was surprised at the high FG, too. Tested it with a 2nd hydrometer just to...

Gravity was steady at 1.010 last night so I racked it to a keg and hooked up the CO2. The sample had a nice, hazy golden color and tasted a bit like bananas and spice. Interesting brew for sure. I...

As 14thstreet said, don't worry about mash rise time.

90 minute boils are usually done when the malts being used are known for having high amounts of DMS. The extended boil helps to ensure more...

You can replace the black treacle with dark molasses. I think there are threads here on HBT discussing the interchangeability of treacle and molasses.

Can't wait to hear how this turns out.
