Greetings all,

Russ asks about the advisability of using dehumidifier water to brew
with. Russ, would you drink this stuff? After looking in the catch basin on
my dehumidifier I'd have to say that I'd rather use ditch water to brew with.

Now for a question. I've got a weizen in the secondary which I intended
as a dunkelweizen, but it isn't as dunkel as I'd like. I'm considering
steeping a couple ounces of black patent malt with my primings in hopes of
adjusting the color at bottling time. Has anyone tried anything like this?
Does it seem like a reasonable idea? Any drawbacks I should consider?

Ooogy wawa,
Dr. John
