    Opinions Imperial Stout

    That's right, yankinoz. So don't you think that the Caraaroma + Carafa+ Caramunich + Smoked Malt combination will result in a too much sweet beer? I was a bit worried about it.

    Yeast starter with wheat DME for a no-wheat beer.

    Hi guys, Probably silly question. I was planning to do a yeast starter for a strong pale ale (Original Gravity: 1.069) but in the last moment I realized I didn't have light DME, only wheat DME so finally I used that one. Now I am waiting a day or two but I am not sure if I can use the starter...

    Hi guys, After 5 extract brews I am thinking to go for mini BIAB using the classic 19L pot. I have two recipes in mind, both all grain, that I want to convert to partial-mash. The recipes are, excluding the hops for simplicity: Recipe 1, from Zymurgy, 21L: - 3.6kg Maris Otter pale malt - 454g...
