I've only used the Fawcett brown malt and have always been happy with it. Although I've certainly seen some differences between different specialty malts (and base malts as well) depending on the...

It depends on how much you use. In a small amount it can add a little nuttiness, and in large amounts you get closer to a traditional porter with a good amount or roast flavor. Some of the original...

I generally check my tanks as I go along, but I lost track. I checked and I've brewed and grilled since July on these tanks. That's what I get for not paying attention.

Today I brewed a new Irish Red recipe and everything was perfect. Mash temps, gravity, weather, everything.

Then I ran out of propane with 25 minutes left. Not a problem, I've got 4 tanks. So I...

A big, BIG Wee Heavy, or an English Old Ale. Something over 1.1 OG would be great for that kind of aging in secondary, or even in tertiary if you add some oak to the secondary. Keg and carb or...

It's not done yet. While American Ale yeast can ferment out pretty quick, it still needs the rest of at least two weeks in primary. With a 1.075 OG it could be close, but I've had some quiet...

Gotcha. I've done that myself. Brown sugar won't be as bad because of the molasses in it, but it will still lower your FG some. If you've got some DME that would work better.
