    recipe, but easily converted to all grain.7# Munich Extract (according to Austin Homebrew, this

    Just cracked my first mocktoberfest today. Did it with WLP029 at 62F for 4 days then ramped to
    68F for 10. It's been in the bottle for 2 weeks. Already very tasty. :ban:

  • Posted in thread: New Brewer, Quick Questions on 09-15-2012 at 03:42 AM
    I'm no expert, but here's the generic advice you're likely to get.1. Color is determined by
    many things, but most notably the grains/extracts used combined with boil time. Adding more
    extracts at the ...

    I've produced three very clean lager-esque beers with my repitch of wlp029. All have been
    incredibly clear. I use a tab of whirlfloc in each batch. Currently conditioning a
    mock-toberfest with it that...

    not likely 90%. either a misread on the hydro or a not-calibrated hydro. what temp did you mash
    at?Hit 125 and held it for 30 minutes, then raised to maybe 140 and held it for 30, then got it
    up to 15...

    They're not alone, Oskar Blues, Full Sail, Red Hook, Fort George, Bayern...etc.Absolutely
    right. All fine examples of the style.Perhaps I feel as if it is more underappreciated than
    underbrewed. The c...

    American Pilsner. I think more of these need to be brewed. Victory and New Glarus can't
    continue standing alone on this.

    I made a kolsch with 2565 back in June of 2009 and fermented it in the mid 70's. The first few
    months in the bottle it was decent. A little bit spicy and had a rough alcohol astringency I
    attributed t...
