Thank for your help, Lorena

I can't remember exactly where I got it, but probably at Austin Home Brew because that's where I order most of my stuff from.

Truly, a great beer. I read over the original recipe, and the original calls for only a 45 minute boil. I always do 60 minutes, though. If you're concerned it could be too bitter, we could ask an "expert" on the board to run it through promash or other software to get the expected IBUs. It's a house favorite.

You could also just add the hops at the 45 minute mark after a 15 minute "hopless" boil.

All of the extract recipes in my signature turned out really well. Try the Midnight Oil if you like dark beers or the Thunderstruck if you want a late season pumpkin brew. Believe it or not, I really liked Alton Brown's extract recipe exactly as he brews it (boiling the grains and all!).

The White Christmas Ale is a future brew, but it's a big AG brew. Beerluvngrl has the original extract version of it.

Thanks for the reply, Lorena.

I was looking at Northern Brewer's catalog and found this product:
Quote:
Alexander's Malt Extract Syrup. Alexander's Pale Malt extract is the preferred base extract for any beer. This is the same extract available in cans, except we pack it in our convenient 6 pound bottles to save you a little bit of money. Alexander's Munich Extract is unavailable in cans, and is ideal for use in dark, malty lagers.

#2012 NB Munich Malt Syrup 6.0# from Alexander's $13.50 EACH
It looks like this is what I'm looking for - what do ya'll think?

With my somewhat limited tasting of the different styles, so far I prefer a full bodied, very hoppy-taste. I very much enjoy a quality IPA. Just no scared-water, thin types like budweiser and those characterless styles.

Thanks again everyone.

these recipes look great guys thanks for the input.

I just landed about an hour ago from hawaii (kona) went to the kona brewery bar and grill just wanted everyone to know this place rocks. awesome food 12 microbrews on tap by the beach i was in heaven. They had this coffee bean stout that was very good wish i had the recipe.

I'm thinking about doing this IPA I already have the hops from my first batch so it will be cheap to do.

In my other primary im going to do the first hefe recipe that sounds good and easy. i want to add some lemon flavor to my hefe but i dont want to over do it. I have 3 nice sized lemon trees in front of my house so lemons are free. Is it smart to use lemon in your beer or should it just be used at the end when your drinking it? give me some ideas on how i should use my lemons. gracias

I'm not sure what the utility in this would be. Boiling hopless wort would just carmelize some of the sugar, but is really unnecessary for other matters such as sterilization. If you're only adding hops for 45 minutes, then just boil for 45 min...unless you just want to prolong your beautiful brew session. Another suggestion would be to decrease your hops addition to keep your IBUs the same for a 60 min hops addition. This might save you a dollar or so.

Marc.
