I agree, no reason to force it. Just relax, have someone else's homebrew :-) I have taken a couple of breaks over the years and came back later.

I like Yeungling but its the fruitiest smelling lager I have ever had. I have to believe they ferment this one a bit high. It has serious ale-like flavors.

I'm one of the fairly rare people who go back and forth. I use all grain when I have the time but I do extracts when I have to do an evening brew. As long as I get fresh extract and I'm doing a...

Probably better to say "very similar" than "same thing." Crystal and Caramel refer to the same treatment of the malt and are pretty interchangeable. Although I have never done a side-by-side of M&F...

If you can do your boil within about 12 hours you'll be fine. After that you might be fine too but you might start to get some lacto souring as you approach the 24 hour mark. I have done a sour...

I don't think you are stuck with the 1.25 and .5 numbers when it comes to BIAB. In 3v brewing the reason for those ratios is to maximize extraction without blowing ph but the BIAB concept trades a...
