Do they die back midsummer but still come back?...

Do they die back midsummer but still come back? Should I dig it up in the fall and look for some sign of life?

Thanks. I do keep the yeasty water. I did that three times as advised in the sticky on yeast washing. I didn't split the final into three small jars but kept it in one quart jar. If I was better...

Ok, so I'm hearing that one does not need the burner under the MLT. If you have one in a HERMS, you would use it to get the strike water prepared and then use the HLT to get the sparge water ready?...

Why does Sam Adams IPA taste so much like any Sam Adams beer?

I picked up a Samuel Adams latitude 48 IPA. It's tasty, but why does it still taste so much like a Samuel Adams Boston Lager? I mean, the yeast has to be different. I find it odd. Do they...
