    Oatmeal Stout Flapjack Breakfast Stout (Chocolate-Coffee-Oatmeal-Maple Imperial Stout)

    I had 10K's Maple Black just last month and am trying to copy it and since the discussion here is about Maple, I thought I would bounce this off of you all. I added real fire reduced maple syrup sourced locally from good friends of mine and it has ALL the mapley goodness you expect BUT in a...

    Backsweetening with juice - How long after adding campden / carbonate at same time?

    Why add chems when you are chilling it anyway? I just killed a 5 gallon keg of cider that was in the keezer for 6 weeks with no yeast activity after it chilled to 32°F. I can taste both campden and potassium sorbate. YUCK!

    PB2 and Vodka

    I am using the chocolate PB2 in my next batch and will be using vodka to pull the flavor out of it. Water is OK but somehow, the flavor stays in the PB2 slurry whereas the vodka does this reverse osmosis type thing and the slurry losses its flavor while the vodka takes on the PB2's flavor...
