My last 5 or 6 batches have been all grain and most have been VERY good. I did a partial mash with EdWort's Robust Porter and that still stands as the best beer to date.
Anyways, I am doing the granddaddy of them all. Yet ANOTHER double decoction mash. First one I fermented so poorly I released every off flavor known to man. Second one the wifey implored me to dump due to a broken therm.
I'm going to do 2 lager recipes which should be very similar. I'll let you know at the end of November how they compared.
The reason for the switch back to extract every AG causes fights with SWMBO due to the time it takes.
Extracts are definitely faster. I did an extract + specialty grain Mild in two hours. Steeped the grain in 2.5 gallons, did a partial boil and late addition.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
