The French press was used just to strain the tea ingredients from the liquid. It's just what I use for teas and coffees. It has no real advantage to putting the ingredients into a mesh bag and...

Yeah, I'd be concerned about it thinning the body more than anything. Perhaps you can add some dextrins to the water?

I always buy spices in bulk. Vanilla beans are less than a dollar a piece that way. Prepackaged spices of any sort are a complete rip-off. Don't you have some hippie co-op or a whole foods? My local...

I used wyeast1968 once with hopes of getting a little more residual sweetness out of it. Strangely, it gave a drier impression than the 1056. Now I just mash at 156-158 with 1056 and like the results...

The ibu's for each addition are: 25 IBU at 60m, 9 IBU at 30m, 2.5 IBU at 5m. Look for an online IBU calculator to figure out what amounts you need to hit those numbers with the alpha acids of your...

I use 1.25 qts per pound of grain for all my beers and mash for about an hour.

Hold those bottles up to the light and see if you can see yeast lines or crud stuck to the insides. Home brew has a lot of yeast and proteins that can be tricky to remove. Use oxy clean rather than...

The 10 gallon cooler is perfect for 5gal batches. I've made beers with grain bills from 8lbs to 17lbs. I probably could've gotten more grain into it than 17lbs.

Your last option seems best. 3711 dries a beer out so much that there's really not much left for Brett. I've never used 3711 with Brett but I've used both many times alone in beers. It's good to use...
