    No need for the Carapils, that is already in the extract. The late hop addition should be
    little to none. I wouldn't add more than 0.2 oz at 10 mins for a 4 gal batch. American ale
    yeast (S05?) will w...

    It's still only 5% of the grist. My educated guess is that the worst case scenario a touch of
    sourness might make it to the final beer. Did you happen to take a pH reading of the runoff?

    There are a couple ways you can go and it really depends on your palette. If you only like
    certain styles brew different variations, use different ingredients, and over time you can fine
    tune and perf...

    All of Lienie's beers except for the Big Eddy's are all lagers. If you can't do a lager, I'd
    use a clean floccuating strain like Notty and ferment as cool as possible.

    You either need to force-carb, or you can just brew the base beer with a hint of ginger (0.5 oz
    at most IMO) and blend with juice when serving out of the bottle. The base beer is almost
    certainly the ...

    Grains look good. I don't get a lot of flavor out of S-04, but I do tend to ferment in the 64
    degree range. I recommend Wyeast 1469, West Yorkshire Ale for English milds and bitters. I love
    the stuff ...

    I'd swap out the pale malt for Vienna malt.

    You have to choose longnecks or stubbies and stick to it. Mixing and matching makes stacking
    and storage a pain. Never had a problem capping stubbies in the past with my red Barron.

    You never know when the proverbial "bad bottle" is the one that gets submitted to a
    competition. When bottling homebrew it is impossible to guarantee the priming sugar is evenly
    distributed. The beer ...
