    Orange Honey Wheat

    I can`t find the thread right now. But there war one concerning the use of honey malt and I think the overall opinion was that a little goes a long way because the honey malt can be overpowering. I don`t think that you will taste too much of the honey because it will just ferment away and...

    First Recipe Crit- Sweet As Clone... sort of

    Hi, I never had this beer, but looking on the website it sounds delicious. One sidenote though, on the website it states that it has 18 IBU and you made the ale with 40 IBU. Did you do that on purpose and how do you think the outcome will be i.e. differ from the original? Cheers

    Nelson Sauvin "wine"

    That sounds pretty interesting. On a side note I think you would be able to impart the flavor of the Nelson Sauvin in your beer if you do a "hop tea". I mean if you put the hop into hot (but not boiling) water so that the flavors will be in the solution but not the bitterness, i.e. the alpha...

    Mandarina Bavaria

    I just looked shipping up on the DHL Homepage. Shipping to the US for up to 2 kg costs about EUR 16,00 (round about USD 22,00). But I agree UPS and FedEx charge horrendous rates for international shipping. Did you ever contact Daniel Laizure of

    Mandarina Bavaria

    I think it depends how heavy the letter/package/parcel is. You are from Hamburg, Germany? If yes try to look it up on the webpage of the german postal service or DHL.

    German Hefe Help

    @JackRussel and peterj: Nope. I just rechecked my records and I brewed it this way. It tasted delicious (not only to me but my friends said so either, mind I didn`t even drank most of it :)).

    German Hefe Help

    Hi, in a classic german Hefeweizen you wouldn`t find any citrus flavors (so that would mean a no go for most american hops which impart those flavors). I would suggest using traditional german hops. I myself latetly brewed an all-grain Hefeweizen using saphir hop from the Hallertauer. But...
