    Suggestion for a first stout?

    I want to make a stout next and have gone through the recipes on HBT. I would like some recommendations for an easy stout with maybe a coffee after taste, slight chocolate is ok, but not preferable. TIA

    My first brew

    Hi all, I am very new to brewing and did my first batch this past weekend. I did an American Pale Ale. I decided to split the wort into two fermenters and added US-05 and S-04 respectively. As my luck would have it, we immediately started a heatwave with daily temps of 97f/36c. The...
