  1. You're not the boss of me, @Brewer, I do what I want. Seriously though, I did it in the melomel because I'd like it if the yeast could ferment some of the sugars from the fruit. In the one I'm going to hop, I did it out of habit, suppose it wasn't strictly necessary. Good thing Fermaid is cheap.

    Perfect Plastic Pint Promotion

    No worries! I have that one too, see attached. Like I said, I'm sure we can work something out if you wouldn't mind DMing me, or I could reply to your emails, whichever you prefer.

    Perfect Plastic Pint Promotion

    Hi there @DEFbrewer, I just tried giving you a call, but I'd be happy to discuss your order here as well. I've attached 2 screenshots from the email regarding this promotion, that show that the promotion was advertised as only including 1 cup per order. I apologize for the misunderstanding. The fact that they're sold as a 4-pack was not intended to imply that you'd get 4 in the promotion, and we never advertised that. If you wouldn't mind DMing me here I'm sure we can work out a way to make it up to you.

    Spring porter recipe

    I've never tried it, since there's no point, but it's my understanding that it produces a grassy off flavor.

    2018 Churchills Challenge

    For the lazy: Horchata is a Mexican soft drink (of a variety called aguas frescas). It's sweetened rice milk with vanilla and cinnamon.

    Metallic Grass like taste, need help

    Unfortunately, hop aroma tends to dissipate quickly. This is why typically, IPAs are better fresh.

    The Real Mr. Beer - Live Stream Thread

    I was hoping no one noticed lol. It's been a long few weeks. When you're live, these things happen.

    I can honestly say this is the first time we've gotten such a request just this way. Bottom line up front, I'll poke around but I haven't seen any in a good while now.

    2018 Churchills Challenge

    Man, I have a few busy weeks and I'm getting left in the dust here! I was thinking about making some kinda horchata milk stout out of it. Def with cinnamon and lactose sugar. Maybe real rice milk? I haven't had time to give it the thought it deserves but I definitely intend to match the effort I'm seeing here

    Glad to hear you guys like it so much! This is actually how I originally brewed it, not sure why it changed but it's good either way imo.

    Creating a recipe database

    Working on clarification, thanks for the heads up.

    All grain noob here.....

    I like to soak my wooden shoes in grain alcohol and add them a week before I bottle, I feel you get more wooden shoe aroma this way than when you add them in the boil, as has been conventional wisdom for a long time.

    Alright, hop sack error should be fixed and instruction error (@Shrike nailed it, btw) is getting fixed.

    Sorry, guys, we're working on it! Thanks for waiting.

    Total noob question about zest

    I think the vodka method works better, so I just don't bother with the boil. Otherwise, all sounds right to me.

    Glad to help! Saison du Miel is one of my favorite beer styles, I couldn't let it go unbrewed.

    False. @MRB Josh R looks, oh, 12% less similar to Hitler in real life than in that photo

    Hot and spicy

    We recently noticed that we had creeped over 120 recipes (if I'm remembering right), when we want to keep it around 80. So, a few of them were archived, typically meaning that we still carry the ingredients, just not as a recipe bundle. Sometimes, we discontinue an ingredient and that's why a recipe gets archived, but other times it's just for website organization.
