We use the glass carboy's here in the US. Plastic can acquire hard to clean scratches. As for a conical, I've read that the shoulders of the carboy aren't steep enough for the yeast to slide down for proper dumping.
But hey, for free it's worth a shot>

If you're looking for a darker color from a single malt then you might want to start your boil while you are running off the mash. This will slightly carmelize things. Same deal with a Scottish Mild, either carmelize or use more grain. Don't know how it will effect the taste, but a quick darkening m...

Last months BYO magazine had a home made Burton Union. Didn't look too hard to recreate. My copy is packed away in storage until I move. Maybe someone else can dig it up.

Thanks for all the responses. Good to know that it all boils down to plain old preference. An interesting turn this thread has taken, one that I can also contribute to. My mother-in-law is training her bloodhound search and rescue dog and I had the opportunity to be this weekends "bait". While walki...

Why the 90 minute mash and boil times?

Hello all, I'm dutifully reading all of the messages here as I have time and was wondering about the recommended boil and mash times. It appears as though most of the times are 90 minutes.

Thanks DaaB, this is what I'm looking for. The TTL recipes are all different, but which one would pass the theoretical side-by-side test? A homebrew that makes you say "WOW, I've got it!" Bitter and Twisted is my nemesis in that I have made 4 different versions. I finally thought I had it right, eve...

Which recipes are spot on?

New to this board and not quite sure this is the proper place, but I've tried several clone recipes for TTL, Bitter & Twisted (my nemesis) and Deuchars among others. I've not been to the UK for almost two years and my only comparison tool is memory and bottles. While all my beers have turned out fin...
