  1. It's odd they included them as the recipe doesn't list them under the ingredients. It's up to you whether to use them or not. Each will add about 0.65% ABV. Personally, I wouldn't as the recipe as is is already 8.4% ABV.
  2. When I brew it I plan on adding it about an hour before bottling.
  3. If you do this, I look forward to reading about the process, the brew, and the end result.
  4. I saw that and was quite surprised. Mini on FB? NO WAY! 🙂
  5. When I brew I toss the expired ones into the water as it comes up to a boil. The boiling water kills them and they become nutrient for the yeast I actually pitch. Welcome to the forum!
  6. I'm thinking of using it instead of US-05 in a pale ale I'll be brewing in a few weeks. Anyone brew with it? Thoughts? Likes/dislikes? I did a search for it on here and most of the mentions of it are from seven-eight years ago.
  7. Got in a shipment from MRB yesterday, so revised my schedule: - Semi-SMASH - Flatiron Trail Ale - Crafty Bitch Zythos - Egocentric Jerk - Pint of Sunshine Belgian Ale - Hidden Lake Amber Ale - Santa Rita Pale Ale - Lucky Charms Stout
  8. Too much brown sugar can leave a flavor that some people describe as like black licorice. To my palate, it's quite unpleasant. I've never used more than 1 cup in a 2-gallon batch, so I don't know how much would be too much. The test will be in the taste. 🙂
  9. The Orange vodka has replaced the dried peel, which was part of the original recipe. You can do exactly what you're thinking with it.
  10. Two St. Pat's HMEs and a Robust LME will get you close to 8% ABV. You can add chex at the end of the boil. I'd start with a cup and adjust up or down in future batches based on how it tastes to you. You can use cocoa nibs and powdered peanut butter in the boil as well. The powdered sugar...well, I have no idea. I can't imagine much of the sugar flavor will make it past the yeast.
  11. After. I rarely cold crash, so when I do I just let the bottles sit for a few hours before wiping them down and slapping the labels on.
  12. Brew it. Best case scenario you get some tasty beer. Worst case scenario you've got a nice liquid to boil brats in.
