Look in the recipe sections for graff by brandon O. Delicious, drinking one right now.
Posted in thread: Need to crush flaked oats and wheat? on 07-17-2013 at 12:16 AM
As far as i know you don't mill any of the flaked grains (barely, corn, oats, rye, etc). Also
any Adam Carolla listeners will cringe at the idea of pasionfruit beer. Pasionfruit has been
added ad naus...

I am liking Brewtoad. I find I can make a recipe quicker than with the interface with Hopville.
Like others have said, previous recipes from Hopville that were imported to Brewtoad were
messed up (wro...

I have Motueka as the sole flavor/aroma hop in a belgian blonde I am ready to keg, and a saison
I brewed today. As these are not ready so I cannot speak to the results, but from what I have
read I thi...
Posted in thread: Worth it to make a yeast starter from yeast cake 12 hrs before brewing? on 04-27-2013 at 05:34 AM

I haven't had too many commercial belgians, but I find myself consistently brewing them. Love
me some WLP 550. Use it for blondes/doubles/tripples, and also fun to use for belgian IPAs.

I'm with ol nicpic here. Not enough bittering for such a big beer. If you've dried out to to
1.005 I don't think you had any recipe problems with the malt.Also good points.

I am no expert, usually partial mash. But possibly you have too much crystal which gave the
residual sweetness. I usually use 1/2 # in 5.2 gallons in ipas. i have seen recipes with over
1#, but it jus...

Maybe oxidation? Do you avoid mixing post fermentation, use a bottling wand, etc? Oxidation
taste would likely get worse with age, but wouldn't make sense only with the dark beers and not
Posted in thread: Oskar Blues Old Chub clone from BYO on 02-27-2013 at 03:38 AM
Interesting that it just calls for american ale yeast. I guess I have yet to brew any scottish
styles, but assumed that there was something more to the yeast. Now even more incentive to
clone an amazi...
