ahh, i see. you haven't ordered yet. well, when they get in...let me know what the AA% is. they say it is pretty low, so you MIGHT want to use the whole 1 ounce.

I buy from my LHBS, Oak Barrel, in Berkeley. Some times i buy from MoreBeer in concord, as well. They have a website here. They have pale chocolate, which was very good.

AHS is a great store. I'd stick with your order. you can use the nutrient if you want, it can't hurt. i use it occasionally if i have some lying around or i think the beer needs it.

I finally got my ingredients together and my Saaz are at 5.8% AA. Much higher than they said they would be. .75ounces? or maybe just .5?

assuming those are pellets, 0.75 ounces is a little high. 0.5 ounces would work, but is a little on the low side. i'd go with 0.6 ounces, especially if you are doing a partial boil. here's what promash says:

I'm working on an online order to test out this mini mash setup....i noticed that online brew shops have fine nylon bags & coarse nylon bags....which do you recommend for this method?

i think i have the coarse. fine will hold more of the little stuff in, but it will also take longer to drain. either will probably work just fine.

I like the 5 gal paint strainer bags from your favorite hardware box store. They are cheap and work well.

Default Great Post! Makes it so simple

DeathBrewer -

At the risk of sounding so redundant - Kudos on the great post. The sign of a real teacher is someone who can make it sound so simple. You have all the necessaries and none of the confusing complications.

Looking forward to trying your method this weekend as a matter of fact. I would love to see more of your recipes. Are they on The Recipator?

By the way, your hair is awesome! I noticed some others commented on it, too. As a female, I have to say - I'm jealous ;-)

Thanks again. Happy brewing! I'm sending lots of good vibes for your back problems to straighten out. I'm not sure there's much worse than problems with the back. Take care.
