It is sold in the bulk isle of Whole Foods.

If you had a connection at one of the mills you could get it start from the source. It is just the sugar before it is sent off to the refineries

Very easy to find. It's just raw sugar. Even the albertsons/Winn Dixie's of the world carry it.

Making my single hop pale ale again, which is on page 1, but changing the hops.
Each addition will be 3/8 oz of El Dorado, and 3 1/2 oz used to dry hop for 7 days.

Also using whirlfloc for the first time, for the hell of it.

clearest pale ale ever


I see now why I've never had the amount of hot break and gunk in my pot after the boil like y'all have posted pictures of.
That stuff is great

Am I gonna have to read this whole thread to figure out why raw turbinado sugar should be used in brewing?

It ferments out almost completely and so can be used to add gravity (higher abv) without adding body. Leads to a lower final gravity and so a more dry finish. Some people claim it adds a slight hint of molasses taste but I've never gotten that. I use about 8 oz of turbinado in my IPAs as I like a dry finish.

Doesn't dextrose do the same thing?

Yep. Turbinado may add a very slight molasses taste. I will occasionally use Corn Sugar to dry out my IPAs.

Greensboro Porter - Hill Farmstead Everett Clone

Target OG - 1.088
Target FG - 1.030
ABV - 7.5%
IBU's - 25.1

Split Infusion Mash
Mash 2-row, dextrine, and crystal 40L for 60 minutes @ 159F
Mash crystal 80L, chocolate, and roasted barley for 5 minutes @ 159F

60 minute boil
single stage fermentation @ 68 F

Grains/Fermentables
73% American 2 Row
6.7% Crystal 40L
6.7% Roasted Barley
5.8% Chocolate
5.8% Carapils
2.0% Crystal 80L
1.0% Acid Malt*

*I added acid malt was added to lower the mash PH.

Hops
47 IBU - Columbus @ 60 mins

Yeast
Wyeast 1028 London Ale

Notes
Hill Farmstead has REALLY soft water with almost no minerals. I used RO water and as few salts as I could. I went with a sulfate/chloride ratio that would enhance the malt character of the beer.

This beer finished at 1.035 instead of 1.030. My mash ran a few degrees hot at times and I probably rushed my starter.

That said the beer has a body that is closer to hot chocolate that most beer. The aroma doesn't jump out of the glass like Everett, but it has tons of dark chocolate/coffee flavors.

Porters aren't my favorite style, but I keep going back for another glass this beer.

That's awesome. If I'm brewing a porter or a stout anytime soon I want it to be thick as shite and awesome like an Everett or TenFIDY.

Leopold's Darkness Sour stout similar to Tart of Darkness from the Bruery.


Just saw this had been posted. I have a Tart of Darkness clone with this grain bill going right now. I used maybe 1/2 ounce of aged Crystal. I drained it directly into my whiskey barrel as I had read Bruery does the entire fermentation in single barrels. I probably won't be able to keep it there the whole time as surface area would over-oak it. I'll eventually transfer it to a secondary.

Got a question about yours. How long did the bulk of your fermentation last and at what temp did you ferment at? This is my first time using this blend. I've had it at about 66 degrees. it started a little slow, but then got going. After a week it was down to about 1.030 or so. A week later it was only down to 1.025. It's been maybe 2 more weeks, but I haven't checked it again. I mashed at 158, so I'm guessing that's why I have the slow crawl going as the pedio, brett, and lacto start chomping their way through it.

Yep, My understanding is that ToD is fermented in the previous years Black Tuesday barrels.

Mine was probably in the mid to low 70s for a month. At that point it was down to around 1.014.

At that point I transferred everything into a stainless vessel and it's been sitting there since. I expected the gravity to keep dropping on this one, but it's only dropped a point or two since this.

It's a really tasty beer and doesn't have a super sour or astringent finish to it so it's a nice gateway sour for the non-sour drinkers out there.

If I had to do it again I would have probably left it on the entire yeast/bug cake for another month, but even then I'm not sure the gravity would have dropped much further.
