I am new to all grain brewing even though I have brewed for more than a dozen years. I especially enjoy brewing traditional, experimental and historical beers. I have tried Gruit, Melomel, and Braggot to name a few

comment Mash / Hops Timing Confusion
0 minutes is the very end when you cease boiling. Think of it like an hourglass and the sand is full at 60 minutes and empty at 0 minutes. You count down from the beginning of the boil and the beer is finished boiling at 0.
comment How can you use an oaken barrel for secondary fermentation?
yes this is true, I would expect a slight amount of oxidation from secondary in the barrel
