    Scotch Ale Yeast Pref...

    I'll be brewing my 1st Scotch Ale soon, there are a couple of yeast choices: Wyeast 1728 & White Labs WLP028. I'm just wondering if those of you with experience with brewing Scotch Ales & the mentioned yeast strains have a preference & if so, why? Do you use another strain & if so, why? Regards, GF.

    Hops & Honey Question...

    So I'm formulating a recipe for a Honey Vienna Graff, and I'm dropping the DME in favor of honey & additional grain. This got me to wondering... What if hops were boiled in a honey/water solution instead of a malt extract solution? Would the fact that it's a different type sugar effect the...

It was molded into a mini brick shape, was a bit smaller than single "Bit-O-Honey," and was quite tasty. Does anybody else remember this candy? I've...
