I just don't like the idea of boiling the nylon or cleaning it afterward. I know there's extra cleaning involved with the filter and plate chiller, but adding a laundry component to my brewday makes...

I'd be reluctant to use something that size for my boil additions. When I dry hop with pellets in bags the expansion is always surprising. I feel like I've gotten a lot better hop charecter after...

Filter/Strainer for Plate Chiller

I'm looking at ordering a plate chiller but I'm waffling on whether to use a Hop Rocket as an inline filter, or spend that same money on an inline strainer from Brewer's Hardware. I'd like to go the...

I just wasn't sure if that was apppropriate in a Robust vs. Brown porter as I never see it in Robust recipes. I'll up the % and give it a go.

On a side note, I was checking out your blog when I...

Brown Malt in Robust Porter?

Is brown malt appropriate in a robust porter? I'd like to add some depth to mine and I'm thinking of adding it at about 5%. Thoughts?

Oops, yes, I meant S-05. I'm not so worried about the attenuation, more about the silky mouthfeel it seems to give the beer. I'm not sure if a dry tasting beer is possible with 1450.

I only use hot water and a soft rag or sponge whenever possible. Every 6-8 brews I'll scrub my kettles down with some bar keepers friend, and if need be I'll soak my carboy/bucket with oxycleen.

I haven't done a whole lot of reading on the style but it looks to me that your crystal to dark malts ratio is off a smidge. If I were you, I'd probably lose the 40 and go with a .5 lb of the 20 and...

These were planted from bucket growing the previous year. I only trained a few shoots to start, but the side sprouts went crazy and are a tangled mess. Do you train those to go up as well?

I'll...

second year harvest ~ too early

The first year I had the plants the small harvest was extremely aromatic; better than opening a fresh bag of pellets. It was amazing.

The first round of hops I picked this year don't have any of...

I always thought it would be great to build an outdoor bench with a removable or hinged seat to hide the burners/pumps. Wouldn't be too hard to design somethign like that.

The total crystal is still only 8% of the malt bill. 2lbs sounds like a lot but from a percentage of grain perspective it's not that much.

I would probably mash a touch lower, though.
