Thanks! I was just doing a little research and found this Bochet recipe. I think I'd also rather go for a golden brown or dark brown color. I'm tossing around the idea of making beer clones using...

Caramelized Honey

MeadWitch, I probably was a little excessive with the coriander, but I was just improvising without having done the research. It still had a nice flavor, but you could definitely tone it down a bit....

The only preservatives that you have to look out for, as far as I know, are Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Metabisulfite. If neither of these is explicitly listed in the ingredients, you're good to...

Building recipes

I'm not even sure how to word this question, but is there a standard way to predict how much grain is required for a specific ABV? For example, if I knew I wanted to brew a beer that was 8% ABV but I...

Prolonged lees contact

I'm having somewhat of a time/space issue with my brew, and was just wondering how long is reasonable to leave a batch on the lees? It cleared up about two weeks ago, so I added some oak chips and...
