  • I brew on a Mr. Beer system (2 mini kegs at 2.5 gallon capacity each), but do all grain, partial mash, and clones. I have recently started making some good recipes of my own including a nice Wit Bier inspired by Blue Moon and a real Oktoberfest that is a nice and malty, the way it should be.

    Do tinctures with alcohol (neutral vodka works well) and add at bottling. It works great. For
    the raspberry, invest in a smaller bucket/carboy to referment in. FYI, the CO2 doesn't sit
    there in a laye...

    If you have an airlock on there then just leave it alone. If you add fermentables it may take
    off again. Also, not that I necessarily follow the directions myself, pretty sure it says to
    leave it alon...

    Use a brewing program and put in the full recipe to get the stats. Then scale down and make
    sure your stats are all in line still. Sometimes direct scaling isn't quite right.

    Anyone looking for Brett drie? I've got a bottle with only drie in it I'm planning on culturing
    very soon.

    My first "guess" is that the raisins are providing nutrients for the yeast. From what I can
    read up, that is my mostly educated guess. The orange is to set the ph correctly for the yeast
    to work.So......

    sweetness is definitely from lactose, not from unfermented sugars.Except the finished gravity
    of this beer varies wildly if you read the posts, sometimes by over 10 points. If you mash low
    and the und...

    FYI, you can get 5gal hdpe2 food grade buckets for $2-3 if you look for emergency food storage
    containers. Winco here on the west coast has them. With a lid (you just have to drill a hole

    Any interest in a yeast swap at some point?

    Double pitch is just a marketing term. All it really means is that they package twice as many
    cells as the typical liquid yeast providers such as Wyeast and White Labs.If you check out a
    pitching rate...

    Subscribed.Can you suggest a dry yeast for this recipe? I am still pretty much a newb and
    nervous about moving to liquid yeast.There is nothing like Conan yeast. The double pitch is a
    great way to go ...
