  • Posted in thread: Bad to "Lager" at high temp? on 08-26-2011 at 08:57 PM
    I figured there would be some off tastes, I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't get infected
    or anything unhealthy. I've "lagered" like this before and everything seemed okay. I'll do a
    diacetyl rest...

    So I know that lagering should be done in the 30's or so, but my basement isn't quite cold
    enough, but I did a lager (Marzen) anyway. Turns out its sitting in the mid-60's (I thought it
    was in the 50s...

  • Posted in thread: Is it too late for Octoberfest lager/marzen? on 08-11-2011 at 03:25 PM
    I just brewed my Ocktoberfest last Monday (August 1). I'm racking to the secondary today
    (August 11) and "lagering" until the end of September (I don't have a cold place to put beer to
    lager, so I put...

    I know this thread has been inactive for a little now, but I did this recipe so I thought I'd
    comment. I brewed a few weeks ago, bottled two weeks ago, and had my first taste today, and it
    was almost ...

    Hi guys,Sorry for the late response. I'll post the recipe up later today. I'm at work now. I
    meant to take my notebook with me, but completely forgot.

  • Posted in thread: Using wood in my secondary? Crazy, or genius? on 06-15-2011 at 02:27 PM
    I agree with Beernip and YankeeHill..I used less than I wanted, but that was just me. Better to
    start small, taste as it ages, and add more if needed.

    Also, another good tip I've read is to boil a pot of water (a cup?) and put the wood in that.
    The hot water will rip the tannins of quickly and make a tea...then add the water and the wood
    to the seco...

    My answer: genius. If you do it right. My advice (from experience) is to use less cedar for
    longer time. If you use more, you pick up more of the sweetness than the cedar-taste. Use a
    little and let i...

    Hello everyone,A few months back I made a post asking for recommendations on how to age my beer
    on cedar. A bunch of people commented, and wanted to know how it turned out.The goal was to
    make a nice ...

  • Posted in thread: How much water? on 06-07-2011 at 06:08 PM
    Our hops are all in their first year. For the first 3-4 weeks we watered with a few cups of
    water a day, helping them settle into the soil and establish themselves. The past 1-2 weeks we
    have signific...
