Love the site and the ability to customize any recipe.

Pumpkin beers are awesome, but I will agree with you here. A Belgian wit is NOT the correct base beer for pumpkin and pumpkin spice. The Belgian yeast with pumpkin does not mix well :(

Depends on your goals. For me home brewing is just as much about saving money as it is about making my own beer.

Not an expert, but putting them in during the boil seems counter productive.

I would have soaked them in bourbon for a week or more and then threw it all in a secondary for a few weeks.

Not really liking the new website. You can't order by price and you don't see the price on the main page for the kits.

Also, the prices went up by a few dollars each.

Why do the kits include dry yeast as a default and you can not remove it?

WTF? Why limit options?, I don't want dry yeast.

AHS is slowing coming off my list of go to's :(

I only toasted them once for 10 min it clearly didn't do the job of getting the oils all out, the beer was complete nastiness, I had to dump it.

AHS had a limited edition kit not too long ago which was a white (golden) coffee stout

Why not just shake the wort up to oxygenate it the way you would with a full scale batch? Same thing. I use a growler and a bung and airlock.

The trick is prevention. Huge glass of water, ibuprofen, and a B complex vitamin right before bed.

If I forget that, then lot's of water, caffeine and some greasy food the next day seems to help.
