Posted in thread: I need help with a Hard Root Beer Recipe on 06-11-2015 at 03:06 PM
I have never brewed it before. I saw the recipe the other day and was planning on making a
batch and bottling it (I don't keg). As for bottling, I know they talked about putting some in
a plastic bott...
Posted in thread: Missed OG - can I boil it to raise it? on 06-03-2015 at 05:37 AM
If you are doing a 2.5 gallon batch then you only need 30 gravity points worth of sugar.
Therefore you only need about .65 of a LB to hit your gravity.
Posted in thread: Any idea where this dipa recipe went wrong on 06-03-2015 at 05:32 AM
I am thinking that the strong A.B.V. and that you did not add bottling yeast may have something

would you do? F...

So, you hop your starters? :cross:I put a few pellets in on the theory that they inhibit stuff

My plan this morning was to cold crash my starter so I could step it up tonight for brew day on
Saturday. Well, of course I completely forgot until about ten minutes ago.So it's still on the
Posted in thread: Gelatinization of unmalted barley on 05-26-2015 at 03:42 PM
Good questions. I think you can gelatinise the perl barley using a decoction method. You may
opt to modify the decoction by bringing just the perl barley portion of your mash to a boil for
while and t...
Posted in thread: I'm an idiot - can you help save this batch? on 05-26-2015 at 05:56 AM
