Default Second Batch!!!

Hey everyone!

I seem to like to post during the boil here. My second batch is boiling right now. I did an amber ale recipe, but the guy at LHBS converted it to extract for me, and wants me to get a couple under my belt before I necessitate a mash tun for myself hahaha.

This was the AG version :

8lb pale malt extract

.25 oz carapils

.1 oz chocolate

.65 oz whole nugget hops (boil)

.5 oz whole cascade (finishing)

.5 oz whole goldings (finishing)

nottingham ale yeast


It's smelling so good already, I put the boil hops in about 20 minutes ago. I'm going to remove from heat and then add the finishing hops, I'm a lower IBU kind of guy so I'd rather get maximum aroma from them.

I was thinking about doing secondary in halves and trying one half with toasted canned pumpkin.....


Oh, aaaaand I may have gotten a 32L kettle for an early xmas gift! Harder to power on the stove though

Sounds like you have the bug.....That guy at the LHBS wont be able to keep you from giving him some money for that MT for long!

BTW - Think you'll end up with a good beer here, but maybe closer to a pale, than an amber (color wise anyway) ....

Hahaha, yeah, it's a bit addicting isn't it! You're probably right about the pale, I should read up on some of the classifications of the types I guess....

I made a mistake and spiked the temperature up a bit, adding hot water thinking that it would be colder than the wort itself to cool it down.....sigh....now to re-chill it in my kettle....


*edit* Just the transfer back to my kettle seemed to take a few degrees off, maybe it wont take that long......I just dont want the higher risk of infection that's coming along with this

I bet the color will be fine...even the pale malt extracts turn out red when all is said and done.

Ok, so I cooled it again and pitched my yeast (WOW does the nottingham smell better than the generic coopers) and my OG on this batch is 1.042.

Dude, the first one being done and the next one starting aren't mutually exclusive!!

Bucket + Lid + Airlock + thermometer = ~20 bucks.

You know you wanna....

I have an empty Better Bottle w/airlock and an empty primary.....hmmmmm...... I was actually curious whether I could round up enough bottles to be able to bottle if I started a 3rd brew. Would it be better to use the other primary, or the carboy, for secondary if I plan to rack onto pumpkin and spices?
