So as to not drag this thread down into the gutter, the place where so many of the other threads that I participate in end up, I will just ignore the bait.

I just wanted you all to know that I'm ignoring the bait.

It's not that I don't have a reply, 'cause I got a ton just dying to go.

But I'm not going there.





Even if it kills me.

I find if you mash your goat scrotums too high they get rubbery.

I'm proud of PTN.

Unfortunately, I think he's dead.

Thanks! Can you tell from the pic how the color compares to yours? I think I came out a bit light due to me getting better than expected efficiency and adding water to the kettle to up the pre-boil volume so I would end up at 6.5 gal instead of 5.5. It was a weird brewday between not hitting my expected mash temp the first time and getting crazy high efficiency (91% when I usually get 75%). I was able to adjust the hops so that the bitterness was right for the new volume and the gravity ended up where it was supposed to, but I think it diluted out the color (and possibly the caramel and roasty flavors). Oh well, I'm sure it will still be good. Just another reason why the same recipe will come out completely different for each person.

It's not that light! You know, you really should find a way to brew this beer and get into this little competition. Then you could at least attempt to back up all this talk!

Didn't say it was! Actually, I was going to suggest you hydrate a little better.
