Brewing Kris England's Black Douglas clone from on Monday -- it was in BYO a couple of years ago. This is a great recipe to rid yourself of the fear of using too much black malt.

Dude! you can't beat good malt vinegar on fries!! My wife is from Idaho, and when she came back here, the first time I took her to the Hot Dog Shop, and doused my fries in vinegar, she freaked! She never heard of it before. Turns out, Ohio seems to be one of the only few places that does that. A shame I tell ya.........She's still looking for fry sauce, isn't she? Or is that only a Utah thing?
Build a cheap mash tun and brew a few 2.5 gallon batches with the equipment you already have. Add the rest of the equipment as you have the money to get to 5+ gallons.That was my progression as well. I used a cheap 3 gallon cooler following Colby's methods for my partial mashes and it really let me get things figured out. I also did small batches and stepped up to 5 gallons once I could do full boils.
Best brewing related decision I ever made.
It's very similar to horoscopes. I saw a TV show a bunch of years ago in which James Randi (one of the greats of this country and world IMHO) went to a college class and presented each individual with a personalized horoscope based on their name, birth date, place of birth, etc. Their instructions were to read the horoscope and once done, they were to discuss how accurate they were for each individual. Everybody was amazed at how well Randi had done with these readings, and how they fit each individual almost perfectly. After discussing the results for a few minutes, he instructed the students to trade readings with the person next to them to prove how accurate they were. When exchanged, the students saw that everybody had been given the exact same reading.
Long story short- if you want to believe something, your mind will let you believe it.
Hi Brewing Rover. Yes, Beer nut is ok if I have another reason to go to the big city, I buy from them.
It's cheaper, and easier to online order from Northern, or Midwest. I do have trouble with yeast shipped in the summer. You seem to know the area. There are no brew stores close to me here in Duchesne.
Where do you call home?
I'm in Rural northeastern Utah. 120 miles east of Salt Lake City, on US 40. What brings you to Utah? I'm a native born, Utahn.Vernal -- Duchesne area, eh? My great-grandparents lived out there in the 1920s before heading back to Cedar Fort. I suspect there's no brew shops out there.
