This is correct. Red's Rye is moving to a seasonal four pack and Breakfast stout is moving to a year round six pack.

It won't work. The corn and rye can't be steeped, they need to be mashed. Your best bet would probably be to do a mini mash with 1.5 pounds six row (for the extra enzymes), and the corn, black...

I use buckets whenever I can. Easy to clean, easy to harvest yeast, cheaper than carboys or better bottles. Just be careful not to scratch them when you're cleaning and you'll have no problems. I...

I haven't done either, but my mom always does a lot of canning at home, and to sterilize her mason jars she would always boil them. It's a little different, because she'd usually fill them with hot...

I think you'd be okay as is, i just think I would prefer it top have 20% rice. 40% would be the highest I would go with rice, so you're still under that.

Revvy, can you comment at all on your choice of two row rather than six row? It seems to me that six row would be more historically accurate and would also help with all the adjuncts. I'm assuming...

I'd suggest dropping the rice down to 20-30% of your fermentables.

I think unnecessary is a better word than overkill. It won't hurt anything, it just won't really add anything you don't already have.

The grain is readily available at just about every online store, but AFAIK the LME is not sold in the US.

I don't think Briess makes apple wood smoked malt anymore. Their website only shows cherry wood smoked. Either way the cherry wood smoked malt is much stronger than rauchmalt, so your point stands;...

A vinometer won't work. It only works on dry wines, as it operates under the assumption that your wine has no residual sugars. Obviously beer will have residual sugars, so you're out of luck there.

IMO this is really unnecessary unless you expect your beer to have an OG of over 1.110. This may depend on the ABV tolerance of your yeast.

If I were going to do it, I would definitely boil the...
