  • Posted in thread: Founder's Sumatra Mountain Brown clone attempt on 12-11-2016 at 09:40 PM
    Love the beer/drinking it now! In my opinion there is no lactose in there. Tastes much more
    like a stout to me than a brown...obviously because of the coffee. I would use a good
    attenuating yeast and ...

    I am not a fan. Left my cream ale sorta spicier than I wanted. I've been doing the same cream
    ale "house" beer recipe every other batch or so just tweaking ingredients to see how each batch
    is differe...

    It's still somewhat early; pitch the LME. What do you have to lose? If you keep it the way it
    is I am thinking your malt to ibu ratio would make it undrinkable. Not sure of your recipe
    specs though. J...

  • Posted in thread: Cream Ale... yeast substitution question on 01-10-2015 at 12:01 AM
    I use US-05 for my cream ale and love it! I need to probably venture out some and try some
    different yeasts with other flavor profiles.

    Maybe decrease Honey Malt and increase Chocolate Malt if you are worried

    Instead of "squeezing the bag" I would get another pound or two of your base malt in your
    recipe to increase your efficiency (it's an IPA anyways so more sugar is better!!!). BIAB has
    poor efficiency ...

    Seems like your total IBUs are way off from the original if you wanted an IPA. You said you
    wanted to target 40 IBU and that is not an IPA, more like a Pale. If that's what you are going
    for, it sound...

  • Posted in thread: Diacetyl rest? on 01-09-2015 at 01:02 AM
    While my lager is in my primary (after 3 weeks of fermentation), I raise temps to 60-ish (give
    or take) depending on time of year, etc. to remove the diacetyl. After, I rack to keg for
    conditioning. T...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone use 05 for a stout with good results? on 01-09-2015 at 12:56 AM
    S33 is supposedly for Belgian styles, seems an odd choice for a porter. Unless that's what you
    were expecting I'd go 05.Don't use S33 for a Porter, unless you like Belgians. Go with the 05
    for sure. N...

    Welcome to the club! My first kit was a X-Mas gift too and I was hooked.Fermentation temps rise
    during peak fermentation. I ferment with ale yeast in low to mid 60s. Temps always raise 3-5
    degrees hig...
