    Salted Caramel Pretzel Beer?

    Yes. I agree. I've never used vanilla in the boil. Fermenter is a different story. [emoji106]

    What are you drinking now?

    I know it's 10:00am here on the east coast (don't judge). I decided to pour a Dawson's multi-grain red. I don't brew a lot of kit beers... I do like this one from Northern Brewer.

    Adding Roasted Grains to wort before boil

    Yeah for just 4 ounces it may be. I would not sweat it brother [emoji106]

    Adding Roasted Grains to wort before boil

    I've never done it. But I suppose it would not be any different than using specialty grains like in a extract kit. Those steep for 30 mins till temp hits 170 in most cases. You should pick up some color and flavors I would think... Good luck.

    Sanke kegs

    Let's say I would brew on premise. But, this is in theory. I have a lot of research to do before I'd even consider it. I have no plans to break any laws. If it's possible I'm game. But I have to contact our Alcohol Commission to find out the legality. Worst they can say is no.

    Sanke kegs

    How many of you brewers are using sanke kegs for your homebrew? I've been using pin lock kegs for a number of years to keg my beer. I have a good friend of mine who owns a restaurant and he is all about local breweries and local sourced ingredients. He approached me at my wedding last weekend...

    What are you drinking now?

    I'm drinking on a Hefeweizen I brewed for my wedding. I didn't have much left of the keg. I'm glad some was left after it was all said and done.

    Anyone use dark choclate bars in beer?

    Yeah.. that is what happened to mine. I had to rack below it and had some waste I could have avoided. Newbie mistake back in the beginning.

    Pin vs Ball Lock Kegs

    Pin lock is what I use. I bought four for 20 bucks a piece. I needed the lower profile connection in my keezer as well. I've ran a lot of beer through those kegs. Best 80 bucks I've spent.

    Anyone use dark choclate bars in beer?

    I tried Baker's chocolate once in a stout when I first got into brewing. I didn't get good results using it in a bar form. Fast forward a bit and made the same stout recipe using cocoa nibs in the secondary along with a vanilla bean. The end result was fantastic and the chocolate definitely came...

    Ritebrew.com Kits? Anyone have any experience with their kits?

    I've bought a number of kits from right brew. They shipped to me in good shape and I never had any issues ( bad beers) from them. The prices are great compared to some of the larger online stores. I recommend them.

    austin homebrew

    I have made a number of mini mash beer kits from ABH. The clones are close to the originals......... but like some of my other fellow brewers have said....... There are variables to each brewer that may change the final outcome of the beer. I have been really pleased with the kits I bought from...
