    Thanks for the vote of confidence- but for water and other "sciency" stuff, I'd highly
    recommend others over taking my advice. :pI think that anything written by AJ deLange and
    Mabrungard (and a few o...

    It is true that RO water does have some trace amounts of some minerals left in it. Distilled
    water shouldn't have any. You should be able to adjust the mineral profile of distilled water
    just as easil...

    It depends on the grain bill. If you are using any roasted malts (roasted barley, black malt,
    etc) you might have to add some carbonates. Also, the amount of crystal malts you are using
    will definitel...

    It depends how cold your basement floor is. You could put your fermentor into a bucket of ice
    water with a t-shirt over it. Between the ice water and evaporation it can help cool the
    fermentor. Althou...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast for 10 ABV and above???? on 04-12-2013 at 03:09 AM
    I have used Safale US-05 to get 12.5% in a barleywine OG 1.122 FG 1.025. As long as you use
    enough healthy yeast you can achieve some high ABV with the American ale yeast that is
    available on the mark...

    Another thing that can happen if you are doing extract batches is stratification. If the top up
    water isn't properly mixed you could end up with a hydro sample that contains more sugars thus
    accountin...

    Munich and Vienna are not Specialty malts. They are base maltsI stand corrected. I wouldn't use
    the quantities listed in a IIPA recipe but that is what makes brewing so much fun. You can do
    what you w...

    Yes, increase the MO to get the gravity back up. With regards to the hop bill I think you will
    be fine with what you have. As a reference point I brewed a IIPA last year in which I used 2 oz
    Chinook a...

    I would cut the Vienna, Munich, Crystal and carapils in half. With a big beer using too much of
    specialty malts can leave the beer too sweet. Especially for a IIPA. As for yeast that would be
    a person...
