If doing an extract version should I -

1 - Just do it with the flaked barley (despite only steeping)
2 - Just take out the flaked barley
3 - Replace the flaked barley with something else (Oats, or Carapils?)
4 - Do something else?

Thanks

I brewed 5g AG of this last month and it went awesome, but now it is terrible. Here is the story...I have been letting it age in a keg until I received my new Perlick creamer faucet from Forrest with Austin hbs. I took a few pulls off the tap, everything tasted great, even with it being a little under carbonated, and I decided to call it a night. The next morning I walked into the garage to find 4g'ish of black gold all over my floor. I found the inside of my fridge filled with stout and the culprit was the MFL fitting on my ball-lock disconnect.

I am trying to savor the last few pints and I am about to order some more specialty grains from Brewmaster's so I can make 10g! Awesome recipe.

QUESTION!!!

i bottled this a week ago, primed with 3/4 cup of dextrose.

this amount generally gives me a pretty decent sized head.

after a week in the bottle i craked one open.

i got a great carb pressure sounds upon opening the bottle, and there was a good amount of that smoke-looking carbonation escaping from the neck.

unfortunately, when i poured it i got no head whatsoever.

i figured, thats okay. its just another "one of those" beers (poor head retention).

however, when i drank the beer it was entirely flat.

has anyone else experienced this? and any clue as to why this has happened? can i expect the carbonation to force itself into the beer over time?

ive never had this happen before and find this to be extremely unusual.

One week is generally way too soon to get full carbonation. Give it a couple/few more weeks. Even though the yeast may have converted all the priming sugar to CO2, it takes time for it to absorb into the beer, before that happens it's just trapped in the headspace.

thanks.

I shot for 1.7-2.0 volume of carbonation. While the beer is good. I feel I'd enjoy it better with more carbonation. I plan on adding more next time around.

If you're tasting it young, you should wait till the co2 is comletely absorbed. Even when force carbing, the carbonation is always different after a month.

I was aging for 6 weeks after bottling, but now I am going to age for 8 weeks before testing. Some were ready earlier, but most are not.

Most of the beers I made so far seem to mature in taste at the 8 week mark after bottling.
