  • Started in 1993 with low quality extract in a can brewing. Instructions said to pour contents into 4.5 gallons of luke warm water, add extract, stir add yeast. Notice that boiling the wort was not mentioned. This stuff sucked, but when you're 21 ...who cares. I quit brewing about a year later and did not start back until 2009, at the inspiration of a friend who is an all-grain brewer and showed me the ropes.

    Other than the watery / thin mouthfeel, if you like the flavor profile and don't want to change
    anything else about it, you could try adding a bit of maltodextrine near the end of the boil. I

    kevlee67: I think I am going to give the recipe you provided a try. It looks like a good
    starting point from which to experiment. Maybe I will try a 2.5 gallon batch to start with.

    I've waited long enough...its been almost 2 weeks since I bottled this and decided to try one
    tonight....absolutely devine. BUT...Even more exciting is that I actually brewed 2 batches of

    Notty is a fast and furious yeast. It would make quick work of this low gravity recipe. Even on
    these lighter beers though, I like a minimum 10 days in the primary and then rack to a clearing
    vessel (...

    I just brewed the 5 gallon recipe and followed Biermuncher's directions exactly. I hit the mash
    temp perfectly and OG was 1040. I pitched the Nottingham yeast and within 1 hour had activity
    in the air...

  • Posted in thread: What season do you do the most brewing ? on 10-27-2011 at 02:01 AM
    I am a November-March kind of brewer. Mostly because the temp is easier for me to control in
    the fermenter and partly because the wife can only endure it for part of the it a

    Yea, that's pretty much the same way I made the immersion chiller I have...including the clear
    plastic tubing. I think I am going to replace my plastic tubing before I brew again as it is

    It's been a long hot summer and my supply of homebrew is getting dangerously low now. I am
    thinking about wiping-away the cob webs and cranking-up the kettle and fermenter for the fall
    and winter brew...
