    Dragons Milk Bourbon Barrel Stout Clone

    I am making a clone of New Holland's Dragon Milk Bourbon Barrel Stout, I found the recipe on this site. I was looking for some advice on how much oak chips should I put in the fermenter. My LHBS recommended 4 oz., I'm thinking that might be to much based on what I have read about bourbon...

    Drip Tray for keezer

    I made a frame out of 1 x 1 pine and placed two slats on either end of the frame and used a 30 lb. double sided tape and attached to my keezer. Stained and urethaned it to match the collar, the drip tray pops out easily to clean.

    Allagash White Clone

    I am looking for an Allagash White recipe, I have read the thread on here. I was wondering if someone has made this and they feel good about the hop schedule and spices. From what I have read it sounds like the grain bill is pretty solid.

    How Far Would You Drive To A LHBS?
