Default Brewing in Korea

I'm new to brewing and live in South Korea where ingredient options are a bit limited. They sell extract kits but I would like to go a little less basic but I'm having a hard time figuring out recipes with such limited ingredients.

Can any one help?

This is what is available (i'm not sure if the rename anything here)

Hops: Tradition (10% alpha), Saaz (3.1%), Tettnang (5.3%), Hallertau (10%), Cascade (5.4/7.5?)

Yeast: White Labs WLP001 California Ale, WLP004 Irish ALe, WLP013 London Ale, WLP810 San Fran Lager, WLP300 hef,WLP800 pilsner lager, WLP351 Bavarian Weizen
Also Morgans Lager Yeast and Morgans Ale Yeast

As far as malt goes they have some selection but ill be really limited untilI can sort out a grain mill. I'll probably be using just some generic pilsner malt (that I have heard is similar to 2 row?)

I'm not sure if this is enough information, I would love some help.

Thanks

You can brew a Two-Row/Cascade SMASH APA:

10LBs two-row
0.5 oz Cascade @ 60
0.5 oz Cascade @ 15
0.5 oz Cascade @ 5
WLP001 Yeast

That would make a refreshing, fairly malty, slightly citrusy APA.

I'll send you some more ingredients if you'll come get Psy from the states and bring him back to North Korea.

Are you in the military? If so, shipping to an APO address is no different than the states, so any online store is available.

@topherM I appreciate the reply. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about Psy, but I promise you, however much you have heard him, I have hear him a lot more.

@noontime, I am not in the military but good looking out.

hi

I'm also brewing in Korea. I assume you're talking about beerschool.com. yes they have a really limited supply... as far as malt goes, you can go with the dry malt extract (9000w for 500g) as your base malt and then buy specialty grains. the grain mill isn't necessary as they do crush the grains for you if you ask. under malt, there are 2 options for getting your grains milled. less than 3kg s I think is 3000won. so you select that as a separate product along with your other grains. don't forget to get them crushed- haha I did that last night, but luckily when I called them today the order hadn't shipped so he said he'd crush em for free.

happy brewing!

We have a mini food processor that my mom gave us decades ago. I had to use it in a pinch with my partial mash yesterday to crush 5lbs of grain. 1/2C at a time with 3 pulses of 3-4 seconds each did a nice job. Just throwin that out there.

Thank goodness your not in North Korea or getting ingredients would be even harder. And Kim Jong-Un would claim 4.9 out of a 5 gal batch as his property.

Just a word of caution regarding Pilsner vs. 2-row. Pilsner malt has a higher amount of DMS percursers which taste like corn in mild cases, rotten vegetables in severe cases. If you use Pilsner malt, make sure you do a vigorous 90 minute boil and cool as quickly as possible afterwards so that doesn't wind up in your beer.

@kyle1111, thanks for the advice with beerschool.co.kr, do use goodbeer.co.kr? Where in the ROK are you brewing?
I've looked at homebrew korea and there isn't much in the way of recipes in there forum. So, do you mash your grains or throw them in the boil since you are using an extract/whole grain combo? I'd love more details on your process.

@OClairBrew, thanks for the advice on the pilsner malt.
