I brew for the same reasons I garden, cook, do my own woodworking, carpentry etc. I just like knowing how thing work and doing it myself, and you can make it just the way you like it, uh, huh (kc and the sunshine band)

I just finished brewing a batch in which I used Brewtan B at a rate of .1 gram per gallon in the mash and the same at the end of the boil.  I didn't really notice anything different in terms of break formation.

It did turn the strike water a bit milky.
I tried it out on my recent brews, but .25g per gallon at mashin and at boil 5min. We shall see...

I predict it will be fun and interesting. My attempts at 120 with longer times produced something in between what you get at 170 vs dry hopping.

According to a blip knowledge drop by Zainasheff you have to drop faster than 2F per hour to experience a problem. Good luck doing that with more than a couple gallons. I crash by setting my controller to 30F and walking away. Never a problem

Cool. Sounds like I'm on one of the right tracks. I'll try to remember this thread and post up how they turned out

I'll bump the stout IBU.

Steve, you're probably right, but dry is fine by me. Rather that than too sweet. Good advice tho
