    smoked malts

    Is it possible to buy whole malted grains from the brewshop and then place them in a smoker to mimic the Scottish whiskey makers process? Just long enough to impart a subtle flavor i'm guessing.

    Guinness clone recipe

    one of the recipes says to steep the grains for 30 to 60 min. At what point in the process is this done? And do I boil the malt with the hops or pour the hop water over the malt extract?

    Gruit Ales in the kettle

    elder flowers have a funny smell fresh or dried. any member of the artemisia family( mugwort, wormwood etc.) is going to be VERY bitter. 1 oz. doesnt seem like much but i would try cutting that in half. I didnt see anything about the use of heather to make gruit but I feel that any beer with...

    Gruit Ales in the kettle

    From Stephen Harrod Buhners Sacred and Herbal Healing Beers. the herbs to use are Myrica Gale, Marsh Rosemary, and Yarrow. This is one to be careful with as these ingredients are highly Psychotropic when combined.
