i did a long boil because of the turbid mash. You get a huge amount of wort that needs to be reduced.
I used a large amount of propane.
cuvee rene is what i have dregs from. I should have been more specific.
I have 2 batches of flanders red with a oak dowel in a universal bung aging in the basement since jan and feb. They have a nice bit of funk on top of them. I need to dig out my digital camera to post some pictures.
3 gallons is a odd size, is it oak?
