Yeah, a target gravity would be good to know. It also may take a batch or two to figure out how
to get a high yield out of mashing with your setup. If you are a few points off, it is no big

Yep! Worry in a few days if nothing has happened. The yeast cells have been in a big coma!

It is going to be around a 5% ABV beer, right? It looks like your original gravity is likely to
blame. No worries, it will just feel like a lighter beer.

That would be fine. Just keep them away from the light. Also, I have never bottle conditioned
before, but do you really need to put them in the fridge? At 45 degrees Fahrenheit, wouldn't

Nice tiles! Perhaps take another reading or try with another hydrometer. Unless you planned on
making an incredibly high alcohol beer, 1.49 sounds really high. Many imperial stouts and

Sure! There are also some conveniences associated with doing so. For example, your original
gravity will be lower so you can pitch a smaller starter or buy less packets of yeast to use.
You may also g...

I think you are also safe in a technical sense as altering already malted grains with heat is
not itself considered malting, according to a dictionary.

It can't hurt to let it go another few days, personally, I would wait a week at the very, very
minimum. But he fermentation time is dependent on many variables including original gravity,

It would not hurt at all! In part, steeping washes the fermentable substances off the grains,
so it probably helps to a degree.

I have use molasses in the boil but not treacle. It may have been Zainasheff's book that stated
that treacle is most similar to the darkest and unrefined of molasses.You can always add the
