    Interesting. I'd rather use a little Munich or Vienna instead of cara malts. Late hopping makes
    sense. American breweries miss the mark when it comes to good German style lagers, I
    think.Definitely ag...

    There's nothing wrong with a little caramel malt in German beers. Obviously Weyermann and the
    other German maltsters aren't making all that CaraHell, CaraVienna, CaraMunich and others to
    simply supply...

  • Posted in thread: Why I Wouldn't Drink Sam Adams on 06-20-2015 at 05:48 PM
    But I've refused to drink Sam Adams Boston Lager because, well, it's a lager. So by that
    reasoning would you also refuse to drink, say, an Ayinger Dopplebock?

  • Posted in thread: Converting Wheat LME to all grain on 06-18-2015 at 11:02 PM
    Hey guys,I have an extract recipe that calls for 6 lbs of wheat LME and I wanted to do an all
    grain version. What would you recommend the conversion be for this recipe? I've seen places
    that said whea...

    Lots of yeast, critical temperature control during fermentation, filtration (most do) followed
    by some cold conditioning in the bright beer tank along with carefully controlled carbonation
    will give y...

    German malt would be very similar and available, like Weyermann Pale Malt.

    There's no right way or wrong way it's all about achieving the intended effect of the brewer.
    Combine that with different flavor & bittering profiles of various hops along with differences
    in boil tim...

  • Posted in thread: Kolsch Dry Yeast on 05-20-2015 at 12:19 AM
    There is no dry Kolsch yeast. I would agree that the US-05 is as good a choice as any. Use it
    towards the low end of its temp range, call the beer a Kolsch and very few will know the
    difference. Howev...

  • Posted in thread: Witbier and unmalted wheat on 05-20-2015 at 12:03 AM
    Yes, flaked wheat is the choice here. Wits also often feature a portion of oats as well. So you
    could go something like 50% pils malt, 40% flaked wheat and 10% flaked oats if you like.

  • Posted in thread: Kolsch recipe on 05-09-2015 at 02:49 AM
    Old time Kolsch could have quite a bit of wheat but it's optional with modern versions.
    Personally I like about 6% German wheat malt as I think it adds to the overall crispness of the
    beer and gives i...
