  • Posted in thread: Basil beer? on 01-30-2015 at 06:43 PM
    I've grown and eaten a lot of basil over the past four years (!) but none yet has made it's way
    into a beer. I would err on the side of caution and go light on the basil; maybe a small
    crushed handful...

    I would bottle or put it into another container to get it off the yeast cake.I've left mine in
    primary for 6 months, no issues here. :mug:

    Excellent! A fresh take on something that has been done many times before!

    13.5%I'll agree. 14% SB and all the hop additions increased by 25% have nailed it for me three
    times in a row.

    10 gallons of export-strength stout. Half will be dosed with lactose, cocoa nibs and fresh
    spearmint leaves in a few days, the other half will be left au natural.

    How long has the beer been in contact with the apples?

  • Posted in thread: adding fruit to beer on 10-10-2013 at 04:14 AM
    I'd skip the apples in the boil. You don't want boiled apple flavor. Add more apples to your
    secondary fermentor than you used last time. Selece a lower-attenuating (british?) yeast.
    Consider infusing...
