Forced Carbonation Using a Carbonation Stone

Since I began to home brew I have always been a big fan of forced carbonation and since I brew a lot of lagers it helps cut down on the time frame between brew day and the time which you can open one...

Barley Crusher all the way!

Love my Barley Crusher. Bought the standard size one and use it with an electric drill. I have probably used it to mill grain for 20-25 batches of beer and have never had a problem with it.

Go for the Pumpkin

As a few others have mentioned, this is a great recipe and I would most definitely use the pumpkin in the mash. It adds a wonderful color to the brew.

I live just south of you guys in Lake Zurich. Nice to see fellow brewers in the area. Maybe we should start our own homebrew club in southern Lake County.
Anyone interested?
