Hi Hank, glad ya made it. I'm having trouble visualizing exactly what you mean by breaking your current IC into 2 or 3 parts. Could you give a bit more info?

I think style wise Snow Cap is a winter warmer. I came up with a fairly close recipe for it years back. Thanks for the reminder....I may to to brew it again soon!
I did a search and found your recipe on tastybrew. It says that there were some problems with the recipe. Is there somewhere else that it is posted with corrections?
Should I leave it in primary (current temp is 52F) the whole time, then D-rest in January and lager throughout Feb and March?
I don’t think that you can use Ginger in a Koelsch.
But you can use Ginger in a light colored ale based on a Koelsch recipe
I don't have any advice, only a comment: Yuck!
Good to know! I've been doing double-batch sparges and would stir in, let sit for 5 minutes, stir again and then drain. So, eliminating the 5 minutes and second stir will cut about 15 minutes off the brew day. This will bring me really close to my target of 4hrs from first flame on to all cleaned up.
- Dave Miller's book is fairly comprehensive. He has a "hand book" as well as full book I have. Although I will check out your other reading suggestion as well.
What is a good braid to get? I want to replace my slotted pipe with a braid and when I looked at the HD I found that most braids and made from plastic nowadays.
the first couple of years, I let the sparge sit for 15minutes before vorlauf and running, and then decided to try not letting it sit at all and just go right to the vorlauf. efficiency stayed the same as did the quality of the output, so I stopped for the most part.
Great southern alt-counrty dirty rock. Whatever you want to call it, Drive-By Truckers are tops on my list. I can listen to Southern Rock Opera from front to back over and over while brewing. Here's the first song I ever heard of theirs. Got me hooked.
Denny, why do you scrape it out?
