Just throwing it out there. ;)

Sounds like autolysis to me.

I've never heard of autolysis making a beer turn black.

I had a Saison left on the yeast for months turn from straw-colored to what can be comparatively considered "black". While the brew did not stink it was quite reminiscent of soy-sauce and was very unpleasant. A dumper.

But he said the pale ale that turned black was "recently made".

For whatever reason it looks like PHP's SESSION_ID is getting concatenated to the dl query string, and appears to be invalid. I would suggest not including the sessionid in the string.

I sent this suggestion on to IT.

I'm sure Drew or one of the other guys will chime in be here's a start:

Yep, the first thing to do is read through that doc so you can see what's expected.

If you ask me, this is a dumb idea. Especially the fact that they are not reusable and that you may have to use as many as 4-5 which increases the batch cost by $ 2.50.

Yep.  Those are my main problems with them, too.

You what?!?  Prefer pellets?  Easier to store 20lbs? :D

Yep.  And they stay good longer.

Nicotine is very toxic stuff. While I enjoy the taste and aroma of a fine cigar, I would not recommend ever using tobacco in any sort of food product.

THIS^^^

Don't do it, Doug.

Interesting concept.  I'v e come to usually prefer pellets.  The packs look cool, but I'd feel better about using them if they were reusable.

Like Kai mentioned, British and usually American styles do not use a step mash (although somebody can probably come up with an exception!).

Would you say that just comes down to a preference thing or perhaps just a brew house set up versus something necessary to the style? I know that spending more time at one range (beta vs alpha) can potentially change the body/fermentability, but don't ever recall reading anywhere that one brew style or another you ought not step mash.

I don't mean to belabor the topic by any means — just seeking out more knowledge on the subject.   :D

It comes back to the malts used as much as anything.  British maltsters make highly modified malts so step mashing isn't a requirement.  I think it comes down to tradition, also.

When I do a step mash, it's usually something like 146-160.  No protein rest.

I base step mash decisions (especially protein rests) on the malt I use and not the recipe.  That means I almost never do a step mash.
