    Storing & Using Wild Hops

    Hi again everyone! At my summer job I found a hops plant that nobody seems to need, so I figured I'd give harvesting and using the hops a go! The cones feel papery and have yellow lupulin visible just under the topmost leaf, so I figure they're ready to take. What's the best way to dry and...

    Bourbon barrel porter recipe help

    I'm trying to make a bourbon barrel porter-type brew but I'm often wary of that style being too sweet, especially by the time I've gotten to the bottom of the glass. I like the bourbon and oak flavors but I want something more like a stout in terms of flavor profile. I've done a few things to...

I mostly chose the malt bill because it's what I have on hand, but if you have any suggestions on adjustments up/down please let me...
