  • I got into brewing as a dare from my wife about 13 years ago. She saw a Mr. Beer kit and said that I could not do that if I tried. Well the rest is history now. I used Mr. Beer for about 2 years and moved into a 5 gal setup. I am now brewing all grain now. No style or ingredient is safe with me. I like to push the envelope all the time and not just with my beers.

    I brewed a sweet stout and I just opened a bottle and referring to the 2015 guidelines I feel
    that I hit the mark on the aroma, appearance, flavor and mouth feel. I am a little concerned
    about the ABV...

    I've made a Fire In Your Hole beer where it is a Mexican cervesa and once I added a whole

    My calculated SG was 1.062 and I was over that at a measured SG of 1.072 so while it will be a
    little higher than calculated I cannot forget about the 1# lactose I put it so my FG will be
    higher, mayb...

    How did you determine that your efficiency was 88%? Was 88% your brewhouse or mash
    efficiency?My brewhouse efficiency was 88%.

    I have not personally used juice in my beers but I have used canned Oregon cherries, both sweet
    and tart. I usually puree them and add them to the secondary as the primary will ferment out
    the flavor ...

    I have a friend flying in to visit in a couple months and his favorite store bought beer is a
    Cherry Wheat, so I thought I'd try concocting an all grain recipe and brew one to be ready for
    him when he...

    How much water did you sparge with and what was your water to grist ratio? What was your
    measured pre-boil gravity and post boil gravity?I sparged with 2.5 gallons 170*F water. My
    grist ratio was thic...

    Is the BeerSmith efficiency a measured efficiency, or the pre-brew assumed efficiency, and is
    it mash efficiency or brewhouse efficiency? What about the BrewersFriend efficiency?BeerSmith's
    assumed ef...

    Maybe I did something wrong but BeerSmith calculated it at 75%. I ended up with over 88%
    (according to Brewers Friend calculator). I posted my recipe below and maybe you can help me
    figure out what/if...
