Posted in thread: RIS for Christmas - chocolate desired on 07-15-2015 at 01:29 AM
I would go nuts and do 2-3lbs of oats if it was my own beer, but I love massive creamy oaty
beers.Any stuck mash problems with this approach? Do you get any oat flavor with this, or just
a killer velv...

I vastly recommend 2-5lb of Brown malt. You get lots of layers (milk chocolate, light coffee,
nuts, some sweetness and body) from it. It's a bit like the cello section in a concert. Plenty
of depth, n...

It's certainly within reason to hit your FG within 72 hours at 70 degrees. I brewed a hefe
using Wyeast 3068 (same strain as WLP300) last Monday and was able to keg it yesterday. I
waited for the wort...

I want to brew a RIS for Christmas this year. I want it big and chewy so I'll start it sooner

to try.I wan...

I'd use enough summit at 60 to get you to 25 IBUs, then use your Amarillo, Centennial, and
Summit (in proportional, not equal amounts) to get you another 15-20 IBUs at 15 mins. Blast it
with the Amari...
Posted in thread: Carapils or dextrin. Really needed? on 07-02-2015 at 05:09 PM
Is it ok? Sure. Is it necessary? No.Whether you include it or not will depend on your
willingness to experiment or your overall philosophy on brewing. Good luck.

Two things:1) Your recipe calls for a little over 20% crystal. That's an awful lot. I'd be
thankful that you mashed at 150 instead of 154. The beer might have been too chewy at that
temp.2) I have the...

That really depends on everything else going into your recipe... you'd really have to post what
you intend to make. A lot of factors go into whether or not a beer has foam. I'd recommend
listening to ...
