It does not matter what temperature you add the DME to the water. The only thing that matters
is that the DME is boiled for 10 minutes. Make sure when you add the DME the flame under the
pot is off, t...

I just bought a few of these and they seem to work well: I have three of them, one for my
rims, one for mlt transfer, and one for HLT transfer. I use a Beaglebone black to control their

If you got three 16 oz jars from a 1 gallon brew then you didn't do it right. So I would just

gallon batch. T...

Typically a higher fermentation temperature will have more flavors from yeast esters, lower
temperatures will result in a cleaner beer with less yeast ester flavors. If you are doing a 5
or 6 gallon b...

I agree with logdrum, mrmalty pitching rate calculator says you need 5 grams of dry yeast for a
3 gallon batch with an OG of 1.045.

Looks like a good start, I would add another dark/crystal malt. Maybe Crystal 40 or 60. This
will help give you a good caramel flavor that the style is known for. What batch size are you
brewing and w...
