Default First AG


I brewed the extract version of this stuff last winter. I ordered the munich syrup from austin homebrew and everything... it came out great!

A week ago I delved into my first AG brew with this recipe. I just got a kegging setup and it will also be my first brew on draft I can't wait to try my first AG batch.

I'd like to thank this community and Edwort for his beginner friendly recipes. I definitely read the MLT cooler thread and this one for my first all grain.

I really enjoyed my first all grain brew. I hit 75% efficiency and the process was very streamlined due to the batch sparge option, and a simple cost efficient recipe from Ed.

I am all about the mantra of KISS (keep it simple stupid) and efficiency. My own extract recipes have revolved around a modest OG with humble amounts of a single hop to keep the costs down. I am looking forward to sipping this one and see if it's that magical and light crispy ale of wonders that everyone is raving about.

Cheers to HBT and the great community here which provides THE central location online for the exchange of homebrew information

I just picked up 50 pounds of 2-Row and the rest of the grains in bulk as well. Enough for six batches.

I would like to add some other specialty grains to change this up a bit, but I'm not sure what....?

What would adding more Vienna do? Could I add 'too much' and ruin this beer?


My last batch was altered heavily because,
1. I fermented in the low 70's (all my beers do that from time to time)
2. After bottled we had a heat wave at it was over 100 in our apt. This was the real killer.


that batch tastes like Malt Liquor. I can taste a hint of the vienna after I've had half a bottle or so, but mostly it just taste like high alcohol booze. Still gunna drink 'em though..

Interesting... looks EXACTLY like my first batch did. I also ordered the kit from BMW. I think the yeast (Nottingham) was a bad batch, but not sure. I'm going to try again in a couple of days with fresh ingredients. My mash temps and OG were right on, but VERY slow start to fermentation. Hard to imagine a bad batch of grain causing this. Something seems to have gone awry in the fermentation to me.

I'm not 100% sure, but believe my yeast was from the same lot as this one:
Lot: 1081140118V
exp: 01-2011

I'd be curious to know if you have a lot number, and when you ordered your kit from BMW. I ordered mine end of June.

Just mashed in on my second batch of this stuff. The first batch turned out great. I've actually used this recipe as a base when coming up with my own recipes. I made a wheat ale by replacing 4# of 2-row with 4# of wheat malt, using some tettnang hops, and adding a little honey. That was one of the best batches I've done so far.

Thanks for the recipe, EdWort!

Oh, I used s-33 on that wheat, if anyone's interested

Ditto on trying Marris Otter instead of 2 row. Anyone try this? Please share the results.

brewed this one last weekend with friend. suprised to find after 12 hours primary lid BLOWN CLEAR OFF BUCKET! replaced lid and was still fermenting good so proceeded as usual. Bottled after 8 days and we'll see how it tastes in a few weeks.

Default Nottingham Recall


Be aware that there is a batch of Nottingham that was recalled (same batch I used). I'm cross-posting this here, since my kit from Brewmasters Warehouse came with the recalled yeast. Before you brew, you might want to check the lot number. The lot number, and instructions for getting replacement are in the following thread.

so... let's say i had 3.5lbs of fresh nugget and cascade (mixed, no idea of the AA%) that I wanted to use in a beer awfully similar to this - how would you suggest I go about doing that?
