    I've never seen malted corn. It is mentioned in the American handy-book of the brewing. It said
    that it dosen't taste as good. That's a good book to read if your interested in per-prohibition

    Malted corn does not need to be gelatinized.

    I usually use Willamette for bittering on this beer as well but I just opened a pound of magnum
    and I'm trying to use it up before hop harvest season.

    I've dried corn on the cob, and then malted it. Added it to the mash like normal.

    Most of my recipes are under $15 per batch, unless I'm doing a barleywine or something, it's
    just standard. Homegrown hops, hops direct bulk hops, bulk grain and home cultured yeast

    growler p...

    Well, if you care about style the appropriate amount of munich is zero. Ditto on the carapils,
    although you could sneak in about 1/2lb or so, but why not brew to style and add a bit of wheat

    A better idea would be to brew a batch with him when he turns 20 and then give it to him when
    he turns 21. Do you think somebody would really appreciate a heavy beer for their first beer?

  • Posted in thread: Salmonberries or fireweed? on 07-12-2012 at 07:44 PM
    I would do a pale or wheat beer with the salmonberries, start with 5lbs and go from there.
    IMHO, you'd have a tough time picking more than 5lbs even from a big patch.I use chamomile in
    my witbeer, jus...

    Hey I got a pound of these that I was thinking of opening. However, I can't decide what kind of
    beer to make with it. Does it have an american, english or continental flavor?
