  • 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
    simple grainbi...

    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
    gravity abo...

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

    I think it looks good. Since you don't like them too bitter I think 30 IBU is fine - it's on
    the low end for an APA but you are also on the lower end for gravity. I might suggest maris
    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...

  • Posted in thread: Review my Stout recipe on 11-23-2015 at 03:42 PM
    I think it looks pretty good. I often sub out some of the roasted barley for black malt in
    stouts as I prefer the bit smoother roast it gives rather than straight roasted coffee. Sounds
    like you're no...

    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 ...

  • Posted in thread: Partial Mash/Leftover mashup brewing on 11-23-2015 at 02:59 AM
    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 ...

  • Posted in thread: Robust Porter on 11-22-2015 at 08:45 PM
    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 ...
