    Muntons Marris Otter blend?

    Got a sack of Muntons Marris Otter the other day only to notice at home it's a blend with 50% Pale Malt. Not real happy about it considering it was $72 but it's the only "Marris Otter" they had. Anyone know more about this? Why would they do it? Are the grains spliced together or there actually...

    Will this oxidize my beer?

    Hey all. Our homebrew club is doing a barrel project, a bunch of us are making identical Imp Stouts and then transporting to a common site to rack into the bourbon barrel.

    Equal parts Munich/Vienna/Pils?

    I guess this could fall under Vienna Lager or Marzen but I'm planning to pitch with Notty around 62, want something quick. Anyone use 1/3 of each in a beer with ale yeast? Wondering if it'll be too sweet. Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    2014 NHC question

    I can't find where it says how many beers to ship out for the first round, only that they'll want 3 more if you advance. Does that mean 3? Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    Good price for G.I. co2 cartridges?

    These things are expensive so I got a case of 30 of eBay (not Genuine Innovations) and of course they don't fit in the G.I. dispenser. Bought the unthreaded, too big to fit inside the dispenser threads.

    I have what looks like dried paint chips in my secondary of a smoked porter. I kegged and bottled anyway because it tasted fine. One of the six bottles has the paint looking stuff floating at the top of the bottle, the others are fine. Any thoughts? Not sure how to post a pix on my phone.

    BJCP Category?

    Trying to showcase Nelson and Pacific Jade hops, thought a red ale vibe with a little IPA would work. If this is good what category would it be? http://hopville.com/recipe/1679042

    Need advice, brew pub equipment

    Long story short. A bar wants to go the next step and make and sell beer. A half barrel of "house beer" would sell very fast even if it was mediocre just because of the customer volume. What's the best brewing system for someone who needs to produce volume without being a brewery?

    Whats the current Nugget Nectar recipe?

    Lots of threads with different grain bills. I believe the one with Pilsner as the main base as opposed to Vienna.

    Was thinking about flipping my keg of Hefe so some of the yeast gets back into circulation and I get some more of the fresh flavor back. Any of you guys do this?

    Refractometer and hydrometer different

    Calibrated my refractometer with room temp RO water before my brew day. At the end of brewing it was reading 7 points higher than my hydrometer. What is the proper way to pull a sample and from where? Can I do it from the boiling wort?

    Is all RO water the same?

    IF I'm using RO spring water do I need to treat it or does the RO process make it highly acceptable?
