    Hi! I'm looking to use this recipe for this upcoming holidays. I did have a few questions
    though.Did you puree the pumpkin meat before adding it to the mash? Or added them the way they
    were (in chunks...

    Yeah, I decided to clear my browser cache and now the numbers are right. That never happened
    when the calculator was at its original site before it went down though.

    I'm getting ready to make a starter for next weekend's brew session. I notice that BeerSmith
    gave me a different yeast calculations, needing 254b cells, for an Ale @ 1.069 OG 5.40g volume.

    I think it depends how much you steeped with. I did 5oz because I wanted a strong coffee flavor
    but didn't think it'd be THAT strong.

    Yep, just add the filtered cold press coffee to the beer. I just did an Espresso Imperial Stout
    and what I did was steep 5oz coarse ground coffee beans in the keg for a day. This made the
    coffee flavo...

    +1 on preheating the cooler. When I started out AG last month, I had a huge temp drop from a
    168* strike that went to 152* (aiming for 156*) when adding it to the grain. So I heat up my
    sparge water f...

  • Posted in thread: Fruit Beer - Will I ever get it right? on 11-15-2013 at 05:48 PM
    I did wonder about the Oregon Fruit, I see loads of them around here but was worried about
    sanitation. I'll give that a try. So basically you use extract just to add a bit of flavor to
    taste prior to ...

    Last night, I tasted the marionberry smoked porter and realized that the vinegar taste went
    away and now I'm tasting a bit of smoke. I suspect that brew is just teasing me.I like the
    fruit beers that ...

    I know, RHAHB but it's getting frustrating. Every time I try to make a fruit beer, something
    goes wrong. I've tried:Puree - I boiled 8 lbs of frozen peaches, chilled, and pureed them.
    Added it to a a ...

  • Posted in thread: The original Lager thread.. Everything you ever wanted to know or ask on 06-14-2013 at 02:31 PM
    I should add that the bottles have been around 65 and ther is no sediment at all.Either it's
    not ready yet or the beer needs to be warmed up a few degrees. I'd move half the batch to a
    warmer spot, gi...
