    Preparing A Yeast Starter Using Canned Wort

    Just tagging an extension here... I have been pre-preparing starter wort for years and if someone brews frequently, I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't.

    Beer Smith Blichmann 30 gal setup??

    Hmmm... I'm not optimistic either - I have the same issue myself (30 gal). Trying to get a brew day going for Saturday... If not, may have to calculate w/10gal and extrapolate out the results? I'm sure not everything would step up, but at least liquid measurements should (mash, sparge, etc.)?

    Chocolate-Coffee-Raspberry Imperial Stout

    Thanks for the welcome ;-) WOW! I was calendaring to bottle this last weekend (or at least to test), but a friend had a baby boy :-). So, tonight, 16 days later, I opened up to take a hydrometer reading... WOW! (did I say that already?!?!?) When I opened the fermenter, my olfactory...

    Chocolate-Coffee-Raspberry Imperial Stout

    Just came onto this site, and found this dialogue - very cool. As a matter of fact, I just did a Raspberry Imperial Stout last night, and oooeee - once the raspberry puree (Oregon) was added, the aroma just notched right up there. I have tried the Weyerbacher Raspberry Imperial (was out in PA...
