Posted in thread: Question about term buckets on 03-26-2015 at 08:11 PM
I would think the same would work. We make different styles of beer in the same buckets and
don't worry about flavor carrying over. I've made Apfelwein in my beer fermenters. The concerns
about this s...

A biggish beer like this may taste of alcohol for a bit. They tend to mellow with age. So don't
worry about the hydro taste. I'd dry hop for one week, not two. Not sure about your
instructions giving ...
Posted in thread: Adding Corn Sugar to boil on 03-24-2015 at 05:03 PM
Yes, it's lowering the FG if you are replacing grains/extract with sugar (as opposed to just
adding more sugar). In addition, I believe the alcohol level affects our perception of dryness.
So higher A...

Unless you forgot to add the extract, your hydrometer measurements are wrong. No idea whether
your beer will taste weak or not.

I like brewing and drinking (and eating, to a great extent) seasonally. If nothing else, it
makes the new season's arrival more interesting to me. I won't drink a Hefe or Witbier for 9-10

Besides the oblivious? One is sticky, the other clumpy.

Munich malt is awesome. It's not the same as light extract, but you could substitute. A hoppy
beer made with Munich isn't a traditional IPA, but will taste very good, IMO. Munich lagers are
Posted in thread: Pitching yeast hours after oxygenating on 01-13-2015 at 06:10 PM
The yeast need the O2 for their initial propagation stage. What better time to provide it than
when they're newly pitched. The dissolved O2 has a positive effect rather than negative.There's
Posted in thread: My first Extract recipe - thoughts? on 01-13-2015 at 05:54 PM
Two quick thoughts:You begin with Dark DME and then add lots of Black and Chocolate and Roasted
Barley on top. I'd start with Light extract. You don't need carapils as you have lactose. Even
