I've made this brew 4 times now once like the recipe and 3 times with a pound of rice DME and its way better IMO with the pound of rice. Just my 2

I'm thinking of making this again, but I thinking about adding some honey, but I'm afraid it'll dry it out a bit. Anyone have any thoughts about dropping the pale malt by 2 pounds, and adding a pound of honey and maybe a half pound of carapils to bring the body back to how it is currently? This would be for a 10 gallon batch.

I'm going to make this one with dextrose next time to bump abv. Did you swap the rice for 2 row or just add it extra?

I could only get about 3.8 gallons in my mash ton for sparge. Next time, I'm going to up the water to about 3.25 gallons, and then do about the same for batch sparge, see if that works better.

It seems my efficiency was 82.07 according to Brewtarget that I use. Not sure why it was so high. I'll check this in about 8 - 10 days to see how it looks, and then rack it to a carboy for another week.
This is bubbling away for me in my fermenter now. Can't wait to taste test this when I rack it in 4 or 5 days.

I hit the OG just fine (1.038), and life got in the way, a month later I pull a gravity and get 1.017 (sa-04 at 68 degrees). What do???

1.017 is high, especially when you started at 038. Try warming things up and swirling it around to rouse the yeast to drop a few more points.

Take a reading a few days later to see if its dropping. If it doesn't then you can bottle or add more yeast to dry it up.

Need Help!

Beer tastes great, but it's flat! Flavor is great, but carbonation level is lacking. C
Background - crashed cooled at 38-40F for week, before transferring to keg and carbonating. Carbonated at 30 psi for 24 hrs, then reduced to around 10-12 psi. Been on gas for 4 days and is still flat! I am currently using a 10ft 3/16" vinyl hose, which results is a decent head, but little carbonation. Any recommendations?

Need this ready for SuperBowl, so I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks!

Hmmm... sounds like a leak of some sort. You talking like 0 co2 or just not in the 2.x range? You can always hit at 30 for burst of 4-6 hours to check it.

Cut your line down to 5 feet. I carb mine @ 13 psi and use 5 ft of 3/16 hose.
