Subscribing before the lock. Some of you are embarrassing. The president of our country is supporting homebrewing... If you can't look past political nonsense to see how awesome that is for expanding the hobby then you need to relax, don't worry, and have a homebrew.

Not everything the president does is political.

Technical question.... What does adding gypsum with the hops do?

They said pretty plainly that none of them had brewed before, and the directions they give seem to be the pretty standard (and pretty bad) kit directions. I wasn't sure what to expect, but this doesn't shock me in the slightest.

But when there's still parts of the country where homebrewing is illegal, I think the publicity is excellent, regardless of political opinion.

Since folks from my homebrew club started the petition and have been actively promoting it, I'd imagine I'll be trying a bunch of different versions here in the not too distant future. I'm not in a hurry, but I might take a crack at the porter (convert it to all-grain and try and come up with a good substitute honey).

I agree. Surprisingly though this thread isn't too bad yet. Just one politically charged comment(maybe 2) by my count. Hopefully that's the end of it but I'm not holding my breath.

Great idea. When I get into all-grain I'll definitely try this.

You should email them back and encourage them to join the community here . I think that'd be awesome regardless of politics.

LoL I did fill out a survey and in the comment section I said that they better hurry up and make an AG recipe to appease the homebrewing community.

Edit: Update: I just sent them a link to the boards.

Does anyone know of an easy way to convert this to an all-grain recipe? I'd like to have it stored away for a fun brew one day.

http://www.brew-dudes.com/all-grain-to-extract-conversion/78

In the first recipe take 6.6 lbs of LME and multiply by 37 to get the total extract points of 244.2. Divide that by your estimated efficiency. For this purpose I'll use 70%, so 244.2 divided by .70 which equals 348.9 total possible extract points. Divide that number by 37 and you get 9.43 lbs of 2 row. Use that along with the other specialty grains as they appear in the recipe. For the other recipe you'll need to calculate the DME with the multiplier 44 instead of 37. I'm just going in exactly the reverse from the formulas given on that site.

EDIT: Did the math really quick, the second recipe would use 11.13 lbs of two row with an efficiency of 70%.
