I recall hearing that as long as you have 15-20% open space on the top of your kettle you'll be OK.  So, lid partially off at least.

But, Fred, do you have any recipes for a really big, hoppy beer?   ;)

I really don't know the answer to that.  I'll see what I can find out, though.

Matt, I'm not much of a hunting fan, but that has nothing to do with it.  If you'd like to discuss hunting, be my guest.  I'll warn you to avoid subjects like gun control, though.  You can talk about the guns you like to use all you want, though.

Keep in mind that we have a wiki you can use to post recipes, also.  Putting them there will make them easier to find.  It's at .

3 weeks is an awfully short time for a cider IMO.  I usually give mine at least a few months in primary and several more in secondary, which really helps to mellow them.

You can see my setup at

If you're going to age them it doesn't matter much, but I think those are good candidates.

denny: any recollection as to what quantity of mushrooms you had to use to get a good flavor?

boulderbrewer: thanks for the link... I probably should have thought to search around on NB for stuff like that.  Looks like it could be tasty, but I think I'm leaning toward mushrooms for now.

I used about 2.5 lb. chopped and added to secondary.  I tried soaking them in vodka on one batch and adding that, but didn't care for the added alcohol heat and felt it diminished the aroma.  The next year I just brushed the duff off and put them right into secondary.  Fortunately, both were good years for chanterelles and I was able to gather them from my woods.  Otherwise it would have cost me a fortune!  And FWIW, the we heavy recipe was Skotrat's Traquair House clone recipe which AFAIAC is the best wee heavy recipe I've ever run across.

A quote from the DBQM.  The basis of my question.....

Well, I guess I've just learned something.  I've never had a problem, so I've never considered it!

I'm using Firefox 3.5.4 and it looks fine.
