    isomirized extract to allow them to use those clear bottles for High Life since isomirized

    Plain flaked corn or rice are not going to provide body. Those type of adjuncts are used to
    lighten the beer in color and flavor. Yes the corn will contribute a little flavor, the rice

    gal*10 to get a 50 gal recipe? will it get too hoppy or anything?One gallon to 5, probably,

  • Posted in thread: Changing the bittering hops in a recipe? on 02-16-2017 at 11:46 PM
    Yes you can use Magnum and the beer will still be good. However, it will not necessarily be the
    same as with Challenger. Bittering hops do matter IMO and agree with mattdee1 that it will be
    more appar...

    Assuming just about everyone is familiar with Guinness stout, Guinness has about 10% roasted
    barley if that helps.

  • Posted in thread: For Bock's sake on 02-10-2017 at 12:36 AM
    I have been looking at brewing up a bock for a while now but have been put off by the whole
    faff that is decoction mashing. So my question is, does anyone out there have good experience
    of brewing boc...
