I have to agree. Secondaries are really not necessary except in rare cases. Even for extended aging.

I had a Belgian strong dark sit in secondary for 3 months or so. Tasted fantastic. Some brewers worry about leaving beer on a yeast cake for awhile, but with healthier yeasts nowadays you don't...

I will also repeat others: ferm temp! Even before going all grain. When refining a recipe, it's pointless to spend time/effort on all grain until you dial in your fermentation.

I hear what you're saying. I'm coming from more of a tasting perspective where we can really only speculate about the water profile. From a brewing perspective that makes sense. Choose the water...

I'd be very surprised if the dirty bastard had any FWH since there is no hop aroma. When you taste these two, there is definitely a smoother bitterness in the dirty bastard. It's more distributed...

It depends. :)

I'm assuming you're cooling your sample before measuring? Or converting based on temp? Just making sure.

To me, the most accurate would be after things have settled. Surprised...

Time to upgrade to kegging :)

I've had bottling days like that. In-line filter? Man that's fancy! I do my best to avoid trub, but if I get some I don't fret. It falls out in the bottle most of...

Does it matter if I delay the last fermentation step (7 weeks at 50F)? My chamber was broken and I wasn't able to bring down to 50 until about 8 weeks after transferring to secondary.

Tried the Christmas Gruit today and thought it was excellent. I gulped it down before taking any tasting notes, but I promise to get you some when I open the next one. Well done!
