    ABOUT ME

  • Crescent City Homebrewers
  • My wife wants me to make a beer inspired by French Toast. I'm thinking the base should be a Belgian or a Stout, and the maple syrup should be my priming sugar. I'm stuck on how to get the egg flavor in there. Please message me if you have any ideas for how to pull this off.

    You've toasted it, so any surface bacteria should be killed. There's of course a small risk,
    but I've never had any issue.If you're really worried, you can soak the toasted coconut in

    Second Nightbiker's comment on the need to take multiple readings. Depending on what yeast you
    used, it's possible fermentation stalled around 1.024--I've had that happen with this beer
    before. Adding...

    Has anyone had a problem with head retention? The oils seem to be affecting mine. Tastes great
    thoughHead retention is a bit of an issue here, due to the oils as you say. Since I brew this

    Hugely helpful, thanks!

    Thanks for the input. I'm not going to have enough room in my pot to do a partial mash--I think
    2.5# of grains is about as much as I'll be able to use efficiently. It would be nice to get
    that convers...

    Hey all,I've just worked up an extract oatmeal stout recipe that's a modified version of one I
    did two years ago and never really liked that much. I was hoping I could get some input on what
    I've come...

    Unsure how the two flavors would go together, but coconut ought to go with coconut. My

    Just a quick follow up for mine, I used 1 lb of toasted coconut in my beer, not sure if I would

    one (I us...
