  • It was a cold wintery day in November 2009 I was watching the news and they were reporting on how to save money making your own beer. Well that caught my attention because I like beer and also saving money. So after the newscast I went to their website for more info and came across the LHBS that was having a brewout the very next weekend called teach a friend how to homebrew. So I decided to drive down to the place and see what this was all about so I got there and it was packed so I commensed to picking everyones brains ie.. all the secret, brewing methods, hangouts etc.. so before I left I bought a modified extract kit just enough to make one gallon. 2 weeks later went back and decided to do a 5 gallon batch since the one gallon was a success perfect again!!! 3rd time decided to do a partial mash I can't believe this Perfect AGAIN wow at that point it was time for the monthly Homebrewers Society meeting the guys could not believe how fast I picked things up so fast and from that po

    Looking at your recipe it looks like you were trying to make a stout that's a relativly normal
    FG which should be between 1.018 - 1.030 If the gravity has not changed in several days then
    it's done RD...

    If you were looking for a drier beer (higher attenuation)Beta Amylase starts at 140 degrees and
    stop producing at 149 degrees, but if you wanted a more maltier beer you mash between 150 - 167
    where Al...

    I have 2 questions 1.How warm is it in the room your trying to ferment in? 2. How much yeast
    did you use The reason I ask is because if the wort is to warm and you over pitched you can
    have a very act...

    If you like wasting money why not just go to a local brewery and get a growler fill everyday
    instead of making your own

  • Posted in thread: Weird Fermentation Issue? on 06-03-2015 at 04:40 AM
    You actually put double the amount of yeast than required for a batch that size so it's more
    like a big starter so i would check the gravity over a couple of days and see if it changes
    because the air...

    The grain absortion rate is about 1 pint per pound of grains, so as an example if you mashed
    20lbs of grains it would absorb 2.5 gallons of waterso to answer your question you want 8
    gallons in the ke...

    I've heard several people recommend Bru'n water to figure out the mineral and acid additions
    but I find Bru'n water extreamly hard to use so i use the EZ Water speadsheet. It turns out
