    How do you store your grain?

    New to Bulk grain storage! Thinking of busting my 55 # bag into smaller freezer bags, trying to get as much air out as possible and place in the Freezer. Any problems with that? Thanks,

    Sanke Mash Tun Build

    Thinking of doing this also. I have lot's of questions. Do you have to worry about scorching? Or are you just adding enough heat to hold the mash temp? Do you doing any stirring during the mash time, would that clog up the false bottom?

    How to pick a category for your beer?

    I have taken a traditional recipe, used non traditional hops, Ale yeast instead of Lagering, and dry hopped that is not traditional to the style. How do I pick a category to enter it in for a competition? Once I did a way, way, way BIG Northern Brown Ale. It was definitely to high in...

    Looking for dry hopping techniques?

    Hop bag or not? Crush or not? Leaf hops instead of Pellets? Before or after racking? Weight in the hop bag or just let it float around? I know all may be possible, but looking for a consensus?
