    Be careful if you try to seal a yeast packet on a home vacuum sealer. The vacuum will suck out
    all the yeast!!!!Roll the packet down to the yeast and put that inside a vacuum bag then seal
    it.Yeah, sa...

    To clarify, you do mean re-seal the packet it self and not stick the packet in another vacuum
    seal bag?Depends on the packaging, really....It's the same with re-sealing hop packets, I've
    found some pa...

    Have a vacuum sealer, you can always only use a small amount and re-seal the packet... Or if
    you're going to brew again soon just fold over the packet and tape it shut and seal that in a
    sandwhich bac...

    I do have one, but I haven't gotten it out for this. Probably not a bad idea. I just don't see
    us eating this much bacon very soon. I might cook up a few slices on the weekend, but when

    Borrowed my sister's slicer and sliced a 2 lb bacon slab. It went well, but her slicer seems to
    run pretty slow. Still it was easier and more consistent than doing it by hand.Bacon turned out

    I just heard from Andy at Cap and Cork, that he's trying to get it into his shop.

    There's a Metro Detroit Malting house that I've been playing around with their stuff along with
    Michigan Hops... can't wait to do an all Michigan beer.

He who drinks beer gets drunk.

He who gets drunk goes to sleep.

He who sleeps does not sin.

So lets drink and go to heaven!!!

im thinking of brewing a dunkelweizen revy. im don't do mash yet, just the simple coopers kits. i'd like to start brewing my own and the way forward is to start with their recipe and try to improve it. they don't sell a dunkelweizen, so i thought i could use the wheat beer kit and add some speciality malt, chocolate or carafa. i'd be grateful for any advice on how to produce a dunkelweizen, using just the wheat beer kit.

Thanks for the great advice on letting my beer sit and have patience with it. I will make sure I don't rush it. I'm sure it will pay off.

Hi Revvy,

I have been reading around the ******s and all of your posts and links have been extremely useful to me. I suppose thats why your avatar is of the great I am very new to this hobby and am far from being any type of jedi home brewer. Well I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself to you and say hello. :)

Hey Revvy,
So i am wanting to create a medieval ale. Im thinking hops replaced by gruit herbs. Im thinking at least a little smoked malt. These aspects of such a recipe as this are probably fundamental to recreating the ancient germanic drinking experience. However, what i can not find a lot of direction on is what the malt profile would have been like back then, other than some smoke of course. I mean, im going for a beer that would have been enjoyed by northern european germanic peoples (netherlands, northern germany, scandinavia, britannia) between 500AD-1000AD. What would be some common elements about the malt profiles of beers in these countries back then? Are we talking low srm or high srm? Are we talking lightly toasted or heavily roasted? Are we talking more barley, or wheat, or rye or oats for that matter? Do you think beer back then would have ever been carbonated? My assumption is no. But perhaps, by accident?
Guide me by your beer history expertise.
Im so excited about making this beer, but i freeze up when i try to settle on a malt profile. I jist need to know more.
