    That makes sense. Good idea. Maybe you could buy some sheet metal and wrap it around or something.

    Nice! I run the kitchen at a public golf course, and often thought about making a daily special like "Homebrewed Beer Battered Fish and Chips". I think I may just do it this year.

    Remember your hop utilization will be lower with a more concentrated boil.

    I wouldn't say anything noticeable. It seems the dried fruit/plum flavor is a bit more intense. Other than that, I'd say it stood up to the abuse well. I've got a request to brew a Kilt Lifter...

    Is it the same yeast? Looks to me like the one on the left is just a highly flocculant yeast. It probably wont attenuate as much and will be very clear like you filtered it.

    Lol. I thought the same thing when I read this, but then figured I was just being "anal". They should have used a different malt, or mashed cooler or something.
