Posted in thread: Another US-05 experiment... temperature fluctuations on 04-18-2013 at 03:58 PM
Looking forward to the final tasting notes. I predominantly use WL 007, but am interested in US
05 to keep on hand occasionally purely out of convenience, and would love to know how slight
Posted in thread: Best Burner for 5 gallons brews? on 04-18-2013 at 03:08 PM
My vote 100% is for the Bayou Classic Double Propane Burner (model) DB250. It is very cost
effective, easy to operate, and as a plus, it gets your wort to a boil VERY quickly. I always
do two 5 gallon...

Funny (actually that video wasn't very funny...), but I think some of my family actually thinks
that is what making homebrew is like. Doesn't help I guess that up until recently I've placed

Sam Adams Latitude 48 IPA. Very crisp and clean - more like a moderately hopped lager. :)
Posted in thread: BeerSmith 2 question re: hop-stands / aroma steep on 03-28-2013 at 09:54 PM
Yeah, it seems somewhat logical how I've put it in (to me at least). Funny thing is, on the
main recipe "design" page, it puts the "aroma steep" step before the "boil o min" step - which
had me confus...

So I've been using BeerSmith for several months, and am getting most of it down pretty well. My
question of the day is how to classify hops at the very end of the boil. The way I'm
classifying the hop...

Thanks! I was actually a little skeptical of how cold it would get, and of the height inside,
but apparently my eye-balling skills need improving. Plenty of room for 4 fermenters, and
pretty compact o...

After months of unsuccessfully searching the local craigslist ads, I finally stumbled upon my
new fermenting chamber! A restaurant/bar not too far from me went out of business, and I picked
up an old ...

No need for malto dextrine when you go all grain. You can control that variable with mash
temp.Drop the crystal if you don't want the sweetness, but mash higher if you want to have a
bit more body to ...

That might overattenuate, and I think my yeast of choice now might be Denny's Favorite 50
(Wyeast 1450) because it gives a fuller, richer mouthfeel. A drier finish might be great, but I
like a more "f...
