Your momma had you done up in one of those boy's dresses didn't she. Don't fret! Those were popular when you were born around the turn of the century!Denny's baby picture is a daguerreotype.
When would you measure the pH using Mdixon's schedule? I used 5L of tap water to boil the grain and 15 L of distilled water and the pH is 6.4 after the 10 min rest at 104. I'm going to adjust them at the saccarification rest (153) but do I need to worry prior to that?
I don't think the type of sugar matters much (I've used just about every sugar you can find at the health food store) but I have not tried the syrups that Denny seems to like so much (darkcandi.com, I believe). It seems that these syrups will add more character and flavors than simple cane or beet sugar.
Sadly, it seems like the Governing Committee gets left out of more good things.

I wait until at least a week, often 2, then check it. And if you can't take a gravity reading without contaminating your beer, perhaps you should consider taking up knitting for a hobby!Man, you don't give knitting enough credit! That sh*t's hard!

How can something be "double black"?
Nothing that would be easy. But anything's better than the current system.
