  • Posted in thread: Anyone brew a coopers lager with brown sugar? on 02-20-2017 at 11:02 PM
    No., I haven't. You'll get some molasses flavor, which I personally wouldn't want for a pale
    beer. But I'm not drinking it.ADD: for a more supportive

    Someone has undoubtedly told him or he has read about efficiency. While we all agree this is
    not a number to chase, consistency is the bigger goal to me. Granted I get 83% from a good
    crush with BIAB,...

    But I explain to him with my mill set up tight so I can grind finely, I get 83% efficiency as a
    normal processI'm not sure this argument is even necessary. I may be misremembering, but I
    recall the ea...

    Looking back at the recipe it says "once the bubbling action in your airlock slows to 4 to 4
    bubbles a minute, rack your beer into a secondary fermenter"Instructions still say things like
    this, but mo...

    No. 4-5 days of wild bubbling is a lot. I pretty much never get two weeks of active
    bubbling.Unless there's other relevant info - e.g., you fermented in a warm room - I wouldn't
    worry about it.

    It says Reverse Osmosis in the "Wholesome" section. But it's probably just regular water out of
    someone's garden hose ;)

    Good point. Add more base malt. Who wants less beer? :)But you really should add more base malt
    and proportionally more specialty grains. So it's a little more involved.

    OG was 1.083 (recipe expected 1.086). I fermented in a bucket for one week then racked to a
    glass carboy (1.026 at racking) (adding Vanilla Beans). Two weeks later (today) I transferred
    to my keg...Yo...

    I once did a dunkel lager in the garage area of my apartment. Came out great. I had to pick the
    right time of year to do it. I chose late fall, where I hit acceptable fermentation temps first
    and then...

    I have also done an all Galaxy pale ale (not SM but ASH) that was excellent.
