    Adding salts to the boil vs. the sparge

    Is there any difference between adding the water adjustments to the Sparge water or the boil? I use 100% RO water and build from there. Thanks, Cranny

    Competition question

    I'm new to competitions (3 so far). I entered a Saison, the score sheets come back and both of them refer to the color being "copper" or "amber" It's the one on the far left. How likely is it that the beers were mislabeled?

    Good Lacing

    Is it just me or does a beer that leaves a nice lace on the side of the glass encourage you to take larger sips?

    Young Beer

    Hey all, I am currently drinking my 10 day old american stout ( admittedly it is on the small side of the style) and it is wonderful. I'm just curious if others drink their beer this young. I normally turn an average sized beer from grain to glass in 14 days. What about y'all? Cranny

    Repitch 001

    Hey all, I brewed a pale ale with 001, washed the yeast and pitched into an American Brown. I'm looking for suggestions on what to brew with the yeast next. My end goal is to brew a barley wine... But I think I can get another two generations out of it before I finish it off. Thanks
