I had a pint of the real stuff last night with my wings at a Taco Mac in the Atlanta burbs whilst watching the Jets beat the Patriots.

I brewed the Bee Cave Dunkel on Friday night and it has been percolating nicely for two days now at 68F. I'm definitely getting a little bit of that sulphur odor that the Wyeast-3068 can produce. I also had some issues during my brew and I did not get a good mash. My OG was a bit low (1.040).

Could you please provide a link to the Bee Cave Dunkel. I cannot find it via search.

Oh yeah, I forgot to update -
this was a very good beer. My mash ended up running 80 minutes and went from 152 down to 150. This made the body a little thinner, but for a summer slugger this turned out to not be a bad thing. I did not do a side by side, but the taste is just what you expect from a Bavarian hefe. My color was dead on for the hefeweissbier, not the dunkel. Didn't break my heart though.

As far as I can tell. Unless I unwittingly ended up measuring short on something at the LHBS, I followed it as is.

Default Not good, I'm afraid


I just gave this batch a whirl. It was my first AG recipe attempt and I'm afraid the newbie in me came out to rear it's ugly head. My SG is 1.031. I'm guessing that this is pretty much a throw out at this point - would you agree? Any advice for salvaging?

I mashed with 3 gallons at 155 for 60 mins. Brought the wort to a 60 minute boil (my stove doesn't seem to be powerful enough to get a full rolling boil but it bubbles), and then added to the carboy with 1 gallon of cold water and topped up to 5 gal with another gallon.

Thoughts? Thanks!

No sparge? That's probably the issue. I would not top off with AG just sparge with the amount of wort you need pre-boil minus you first runnings.

OK. Now let's say I did that - then I would have to wait for the wort to cool before putting it in the carboy right? Because I've heard a lot of horror stories about them breaking from thermal shock if the wort is too hot.
