    smoked malts

    Is it possible to buy whole malted grains from the brewshop and then place them in a smoker to mimic the Scottish whiskey makers process? Just long enough to impart a subtle flavor i'm guessing.

    Question for Revy

    It said that in the near future you were going to try an 1880's era historical ale. I was curious about the recipe you will be using. Would it be possible to get a copy? I have a somewhat large collection of old books with old herbal and regular beer, wine, and mead recipes, and I am always...

    Guinness clone recipe

    one of the recipes says to steep the grains for 30 to 60 min. At what point in the process is this done? And do I boil the malt with the hops or pour the hop water over the malt extract?

    ingredient substitutions?

    I have a recipe that calls for 4 lbs pale malt, 2lb flaked barley, and 1 lb of roasted barley. My question is this, can I sub the flaked barley and the roasted barley with the equivelant malt extract? I dont have the equipment to sparge the barley.

    Gruit Ales in the kettle

    elder flowers have a funny smell fresh or dried. any member of the artemisia family( mugwort, wormwood etc.) is going to be VERY bitter. 1 oz. doesnt seem like much but i would try cutting that in half. I didnt see anything about the use of heather to make gruit but I feel that any beer with...
