    ABOUT ME

  • New Jersey
  • I've started my quest to try as many beer as i possible can before I die in 2010. I started a list in a word document and started with 50 beers that I was able to remember from my past. Since then I've added 400 beers to that list and continue to keep it moving. rnrnRecently, I decided to give into my urge and brew my own beer. I've always talked about it, but it finally came into fruition at 2012's end. I'm looking forward to perfecting my brewing style and creating brew with my own personal treatment to it.rnrnI've taken in a lot of information since I started brewing, but I've barely scratched the surface of what I should know.

    Cleaning is easy and I don't need to transfer anything, just take the pot off the burner, cover
    it, turn on the water, and come back 10 min later to transfer to carboy.My arms /inlet-outlet

    I am sure it will be great at 1.054, 1.061 or even 1.040.For this style, high ABV is probably
    not necessary, so even if it was 3% instead of 5-6%, who cares? I would call it "session fruity

    3 lbs of LME should add about 18-20 points to 5 Gallon batch.It may become 14-15 points if it
    is 6.5 Gallon batch. If you think total is between 6 and 6.5, let's just use 16 points as best
    estimate.So...

    So I added 3 lbs of LME to 3 cups of boiled water and stirred well. The only problem was i
    didn't get a gravity reading on what the LME/water mix was before I added it to the wort.I
    removed about a ha...

    You can add more LME if you want, I'd be debating if it is worth it given you've added a gallon
    of water that potentially has introduced unwanted bugs. Either way I'd let it ride, will likely
    still be...

    All grain or extract?Yes you can add dme boiled up, or honey, or any other sugar.Next time, you
    can re-boil to concentrate the wort.It was a partial mash.

    You can add boiled and chilled DME, but I would get fermentation started as quickly as possibly
    and leave from for the super concentrated DME addition.I'm making a 5 gallon batch and hoping
    to bottle ...

    I brewed my beer and didn't notice a small leak in my wort chiller tube.* It wound up adding
    close to a gallon of water as it was cooling down the wort, dropping my OG dramatically. I
    missed my predic...

  • Posted in thread: How much yeast should I use? on 03-01-2015 at 04:16 PM
    So I've been plugging my recipe in the brewtoad website and it let's me know how much yeast I
    need by batch size. However I'm not sure if I'm correct with my measurements. I try to make 50
    beers aka 5...
