  • Posted in thread: sourdough starter using spent grain on 07-26-2012 at 12:25 AM
    hi all, I just threw together a sourdough starter using a half cup of spent 6-row (which I used
    to make a starter wort- way cheaper than extract if you've got the time!), a pinch of fresh
    2-row, a cup...

    Well, I got about a 1.096 imperial stout and a 1.055 porter out of that grain bed. I had to
    boil the porter for 174 minutes to get the volume and gravity I wanted but that's alright. The
    porter is hop...

    hi,I'm looking to make a big beer for some time, and I think I want to make an imperial stout
    with a Belgian twist- and since Heart of Darkness takes place in the Belgian Congo, the name is
    a great fi...

    So I'm looking to make an RIS with an OG of around 1.1, and I'm also thinking about doing a
    no-sparge mash since I have 70qt cooler that I use as a MLT and so I can easily mash 30lb of
    grain in nearly...

    yeah, I did use the NB kit as a basis. I think moving to all-grain next year and fermenting
    super hot will make the difference for me.

    Bumping this up for a beer review from chass3.I brewed the same recipe from Northern Brewer,
    fermented at 85 degrees F and brought it from 1.071 to 1.004 in just over two weeks! It's my
    wife's favorit...

    it's because during the mash, enzymes are converting starches to sugars. In the sparge, all
    we're doing is aiding in collecting enough sugar to hit our target OG, not converting anymore.
    The mash is m...

  • Posted in thread: fermentation schedule for an IIPA? on 01-29-2012 at 09:16 PM
    hi guys, I'm making an IIPA next weekend, and I'm interested to hear how you handle the
    fermentation of a beer that's gonna have an OG of 1.080, but wants to be drank as fresh as
    possible because of t...
