Yes, a TOTAL boil time of 1 hour, not an hour for just the hops. Meaning start a 60 minute timer when you add the hops. The timer doesn't stop when you add extract or adjuncts, unless the boil stops,...

First was a Mr. Beer kit. It ended up mildly alcoholic Sprite. Second was Deception Cream Stout from the forums. Freaking. Amazing. I'd order it over just about every stout I've ever...

Steep small, boil big.

You want around 2 quarts per pound of steeping grains. After the steep, feel free to step up to a full volume boil.

I have to agree with your findings, even with a sample size of 1. The science just doesn't agree with the idea of yeast ADH doing anything for you.

Not sure I buy into it- the pH of the stomach would surely denature the ADH, otherwise we'd be digesting alcohol by now instead of absorbing it first. I guess if I were eating yeasty yogurt between...
