It's not yet kegged, only on day 7 in primary. I used baking soda and a little chalk in the
mash (I know the chalk doesn't completely dissolve but figured some is better than none, and
I'm not sure I ...

So, not great news. I tasted the Baltic porter and it's fairly astringent, but no medicine. I
can taste a nice beer in there but it's just ruined by this astringency. Getting quite
frustrated. Maybe i...

Just looking for some input on a Baltic Porter Recipe. I'm shooting for just over 8%, and

Posted in thread: Missed my OG by a few points, should FG be off by the same amount? on 01-06-2016 at 06:54 PM
Attenuation will be about the same but it's a percentage, not a specific number of points. So

My first pellicle. Basically Rare Barrel golden base recipe, Wyeast 1968 primary and two pretty

I recently used probiotics for a kettle sour that worked out pretty well. I kept the kettle in
a small bathroom with the heat at about 25C (I'm in NL so we definitely do not get ambient
