Weyerman Munich II is a German Munich malt and well suited for brewing an Altbier. CaraMunich

American) and ar...
Posted in thread: Mashing cornstarch and 6-Row on 05-19-2013 at 03:01 PM
Would it be possible to use a base malt containing excessive enzymes (like 6-row) with a bunch
of corn starch to make a corn-beer?? It seems that this could be possible as american whiskey
is made of ...
Posted in thread: All-grain recipe from 'peeled wheat' on 05-17-2013 at 03:10 AM
Yes, I believe it's wheat with no husks. It's called Harees in Arabic, but it can refer(I
believe) to either the dish or just the grain itself. Can it be used in some sort of mash to
make some kind of...
Posted in thread: Oktoberfest screw-up. on 05-14-2013 at 09:56 PM
I did not have as good a brew day as expected. I brewed a standard all-grain Oktoberfest

Posted in thread: Water Profile for Helles using RO Water on 05-09-2013 at 11:21 PM
You don't want to match Munich's water profile for a Helles. When the Munich brewers figured
out how to make a light beer in the 19th Century it's almost a certainty that one of the things
they did wa...
Posted in thread: Ideas and hints for partial mash custom recipe on 05-05-2013 at 02:50 PM
There is no rule, but more grain is better. I would start by figuring out how much grain you
can handle for a partial mash. From that amount add enough malt extract to meet your OG and you
have your r...
