Posted in thread: Brown Porter -- I want to use more brown malt on 03-31-2014 at 09:05 AM
I like brown malt a lot and have used up to 15% in a Brown Porter but found it a bit much. I
have settled on 10%. Brew it with 13% then decide if you want slightly more or less next
time.It is a uniqu...
Posted in thread: NZ hops in the USA on 09-13-2013 at 01:44 AM
I like NZ hops, but I hate pellets. It's impossible to find NZ leaf hops from any US
distributor. Out of frustration I contacted NZHops and asked them directly if they would ship
leaf hops to the USA ...

I dry hop my AAA with 1oz cascade and .5oz of citra but I also use those same hops in the
boil.It depends a bit which hops and what amounts you have already used.

Because it gives great flavour and aroma but being boiled for 25min most of that will be lost
,particularly the aroma contribution.The typical ratio I would use is .7-.8 so 35-40 ibu for a

I think the centennial is wasted at 25 min. I would move it to somewhere in the last 10 min.You
will be very low on aroma from just 1oz of cascade at flameout. You will need to add at least
1oz of pro...

Posted in thread: Schwarzbier--grain sub for Caramunich III--help please on 01-22-2013 at 05:07 AM
Yes the dehusked carafa 2 is exactly what you want for a Schwarzbier. I just would have used
about 10oz if it was the only roasted malt in the recipe.It will still be a nice beer but imo
closer to a D...

I would just go with what you have. There is not a huge diff between 1 & 3 in a dark beer.I
would be more concerned about the amount of Carafa 2. That amount will give you a nice red
beer. When making...
