My propane ran out after about an hour of boiling, but I did get a 90 min mash in.

OG was 1.042

I think my efficiency was up to par.

I also added a half lb of carapils to this recipe.

I also am using wlp029 I heard this stuff gives a great finish if kept low fermenting

I will let yall know how it turns out, the airlock is bubbling a little now and it smells gooooood. I think this will turn out alright, its my first all grain and from the reviews it seems like you can't go wrong with this recipe!

Although the attentuation is a problem I should have forseen, I did not add yeast nutrient, so well see if she goes down or not.


She went down from 1.042 to 1.004, I could have let her sit a lil longer but I couldn't wait, she was already in sec. for 2 weeks. (using kolsch yeast wlp029)

And I am confused as to how to calculate attenuation...

[(OG-FG)/(OG-1)] x 100

So thats [(1.042-1.004)/(1.042-1)] x 100 =

.038/.042 X 100 = 90.4

So thats 90% attenuation???!?!? that seems VERY high??? am I doing it wrong??

white labs says this attenuates from 72-78 %
Any help greatly appreciated!


Back to non-math beer loving reality the beer looks like it turned out great, I tasted it and I think its gonna be good when its carbed. I got the "corny" taste people are talking about, but I like it, then again I like pabst too.

The amarillo paired very well with this recipe.

It is in the fridge right now with gelatin finings to make it nice n clear

ill be bottling tonight after 4 days in the fridge, it looks pretty clear to me.

Ok, here's my final thought on this experience: I was the guy that was brewing this for my sister's wedding and cut back the corn and raised the rice because I was scared of too much corny-ness that some folks were reporting. Well, the wedding was last weekend and the beer was a hit. Both kegs kicked and lots of praise from all the BMC drinkers in the house. My thoughts...it was good, very clean, but lacking a bit for MY craft beer taste. There was no taste of corn, at all really. If I were to have a situation requiring me to do this again, I would follow BM's recipe. I think a bit more corn taste would have been nice, for me at least. And I don't think it would've put off the BMC'ers either. Anyways, overall very good experience and recipe. Sis was happy, guests were happy, and I got to take the credit If you're in the same situation as me and worried about over-corning don't fear the corn!

I am going to be adding more rice to this for my next batch, infact I am thinking about HALFING the grain/corn and filling the rest with rice, is this too much rice?

What can I do to bring back some of that body ill lose with all the rice? High protein grains like 6 row?

What else can I do to make this a more all around good beer?

This beer...the original recipe by BierMuncher...is probably the best homebrew I've
ever had anywhere and I'm 63 years old. I'm on my third batch now!
