How do you accomplish that? When I condition, that's when I need to clean my mill. The rollers get caked with moist grain. I think I've been using 2% of the grain bill weight in water. Tips?

I've always: boiled my muslin hop bags for 15 minutes, drained, cooled, sprayed hands with StarSan (diluted of course), filled, tied, and put in the primary fermenter. I've never had a problem.

I batch sparge, and when I do a FWH, I put the FWH's in the empty BK (I don't start the flame right away) and then start sparging. I keep them in for the entire boil.

This sounds like a fun experiment. Looking forward to hearing your results. I've been considering doing something either similar to this or the Eisbock method.

The question is really related to equipment, and what batch size someone's system is setup to brew. I used to brew 5-gallon extract batches. But I moved to all-grain, and got 20-gallon kettles so...

Bump - saw this on White lab's site (http://www.whitelabs.com/yeast/wlp050-tennessee-whiskey-yeast?s=pro), searched HTB, and was curious if anyone has had any experience brewing beer with this strain.

Yep, I use Warrior as my bittering (60-minute) hop addition in my IIPA. Good stuff. Use it in an IPA/IIPA and early in the boil (although you could really use it anywhere you want).

I am surprised that there is not a more hop forward aroma going on in this brew. I'm...
