Mash Chemistry and Brewing Water Calculator
  • Add a light honey at flame out. Do not boil honey or you will loose the honey flavor, (orange blossom, light clover etc).
  • Good after 2 weeks but definitely improves with lagering. The light honey taste will start to become noticeable. If you can keep out of it for several weeks its a great beer.

    *Named after my dog Popcorn, who is the quality control guy on brew day. He vigilantly watches for anything that falls on the floor and gets a bowl of spent grain at the end of the mash. We make dog cookies out of the remaining adding either pumpkin or peanut butter.
