Posted in thread: Help with a Series of SMaSH's on 11-25-2015 at 04:50 AM
I would keep all the late additions the same oz for oz and then adjust a 60 min addition to
keep the IBU's the same across batches. I've done single hop series like these using the same

Posted in thread: First AG, missed OG by 16 points on 11-24-2015 at 10:28 PM
I added a 1/2 lb of DME, is there anyway to calculate ABV now?How big is the batch and how much
water did you dissolve the DME in? For 5 gal batch it's probably going to end up raising the

I didn't realize you already had it, of course stick with the 2-row then. You can still go with

I think it looks good. Since you don't like them too bitter I think 30 IBU is fine - it's on

otter rather th...
Posted in thread: Water Volume Measuring Question on 11-23-2015 at 08:32 PM
I measure to the nearest quart on my 10 gal batches, to the nearest 1/2 quart on my 3 gal
batches. Also realize that you don't necessarily want to go by the recipe volumes, and instead
figure things o...

Do you know if the extract is amber or light? If light you could do a basic amber with
something like the following, it should give you around 1.053 with 11% crystal and 9% munich.
You could also use ...

We need to know what kind of beer you want to make to answer the question, assuming the DME is
also light/pale/pilsen you can do pretty much any style. The extract will supply about 1.025
gravity. It ...

In general I'm not crazy about citrusy finishing hops like cascade in browns and porters even
when using American yeast, but some folks like them so I guess you could go either way. I'd
probably swap ...
