  • I started making wine in 1972, and my first (extract) brew was started on April 8, 1990. Currently, I mostly mash/brew lagers (pilsners) using a freezer with a temperature control for fermentation and lagering. I mostly follow German pilsner recipes such as Bitburger and Warsteiner as well as Pilsner Urquell. I have also often brewed a modified Steam Whistle (Brewery in Toronto). I have also recently brewed a Westvleteren clone and a Flanders Red clone (Rodenbach).

    Maybe I have missed something mentioned earlier. But what exactly is used for yeast nutrient? I
    don't recall seeing anything like that packaged for sale at my LHBS. I know the ingredients are
    fairly b...

    I admire brewers that can put a whole batch away for a year before taking a sample. I've never
    been able to do that. So I finally starting brewing this recipe over and over. It's really nice
    to have m...

    If you find a better version please let me know. But based on how the wort tastes, this should
    be pretty decent beer to drink.BMy apologies. I was simultaneously following a very similar
    thread on Inn...

    Thanks, I am not looking for an exact match... heck different setups with the same recipe can
    produce different tasking beer.BNo, I agree, but I was looking for something close. Oak does
    take some tim...

    I made this beer on January 1 of this year and kegged it on February 4 at which time I also
    added the oak. The beer was enjoyable, but certainly did not taste like Innis & Gunn. I think
    this recipe st...

    Are those standard size? I'm sure someone here knows. I use an assortment of Belgian bottles of
    that size from different brands and they all work well with standard caps.I used an assortment
    of bottle...

    Reading earlier posts by saq, seemed that I should start out mid 60's and ramp up quickly and
    hold at 82 or so. Maybe I misread, but not going to read through the whole thread again. ;) I
    will say tha...

    Update - the oak debris finally got flushed out, and I gave it an initial taste test. It was
    delicious, although not as close to an Innis & Gunn as I would have expected. Lots of flavour,
    but not quit...

    I would think that even if they were spread out, the bourbon would still cover the same amount.
    I just rotated and shook the jar a couple of times a day, and added it to my keg tonight. By
    this time, ...
