Welcome! You came to a good place to get info. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and don’t be afraid to share your techniques and experiences. That is how people learn what works for them!

Ditto. Welcome! :cheers:

Welcome, many ways to brew great tasting beers. Feel free to share what works for you.

Also, update your profile to list a location. You may find someone local on the board.

Yeah, I’m a refugee myself from another forum. I’ve lurked here for a few years garnering a great deal of info. This is a good place. I hope it never changes.

Welcome to the forum. I brewed the “wrong” way for years. There’s a lot of information and experience to gain here. :cheers:

Welcome!
Off topic, but I see in your sig. that you have 2 porters fermenting. I love porters, but so far have only brewed a Honey Porter( and have another one on-deck). I was interested in your opinion: have you brewed a favorite?

i will have to look when i get home for the recipe,ive only done 1 porter so far and a few stouts.but the porter i did do was pretty tasty.i will let you know later

You might still be told that you are wrong. Hopefully it’s done in a fashion that you don’t notice. :wink:

Looks nice! Thanks. Looks similar to one I did today, except I added 1/2 lb Brown Malt, 1/4 lb roasted barley, 2 oz. smoked malt, and 1/2 lb honey malt(it’s a Honey Porter). Used Wy1728 Scottish ale(going to rack a Wee Heavy onto the cake when it’s done)
