In my experience using pumpkin in the mash gives some color and mouthfeel, and makes for a bright orange mash  :o

This is what I do to all my bottle conditioned beers.

Or you could just look up my article in the SEP/OCT 2013 edition of Zymurgy  ;)

No health risks I am aware of besides higher alcohol level, but distillation is technically illegal without a license  :o

I arrive at 6pm Wednesday. If anyone is arriving at a similar time and wants to share a ride to the T&C let me know.

I measure .5 oz of whole peppercorns, then crushed them, and put them in at knockout with the finishing hops. There was a pleasant orangey/peppery aroma coming from the wort when I transferred it to the primary. I will report back in about a month with the results. Maybe I will bring a couple bottles to the NHC to share.

I want to add some freshly ground black pepper to my next Saison. Grain bill is as follows:

For 10 gallons

1 lb malted Wheat
2 lbs Vienna malt
17 lbs Pilsner malt
1 lb beet sugar

So how much black pepper should I add for a subtle contribution? Planning on adding it at knockout.

I have brewed outside in the snow, rain, wind, -3 degrees, etc. But no more. Now I brew in  my nice comfy climate controlled brewery in the basement.  ;)

I am there now and just kegged my ESB I brewed 2 weeks ago when it was snowing and 20 degrees outside.

Brew on hardy brewers !

Well, I ended up using 2 lbs of uncooked rice (4 cups) then cooked it. I put that in with the the 2 lbs of flaked maze with the grain at 120 degrees for a protein rest. It seemed like a lot of rice compared to the flaked maze. The mash was cloudy as heck (I recirc the entire time) until about 30 minutes through the saccharification rest when it became crystal clear and Budweiser piss yellow. No stuck mash at all.

I hit my OG exactly (1.059 at 90% efficiency).  8)

Hopefully it will be ready in time for the NHC.

I am splitting the adjuncts to to half corn and half rice (10% each) but again the recipe says "COOKED RICE" so that is the reason for my question.

And my recipe calls for 2 pounds of cooked rice. How much is that before cooking? 1 pound? If not , what is the correct ratio of uncooked vs cooked?

The AHA e-mailed me my code twice - once last week and again this morning. I was able to purchase 2 tickets to the members only session, which is better than I was able to do last year, so I am satisfied.  :) The site was too busy for me to print my tickets but I will try that again later.
