Posted in thread: Too late to save my big Doppelbock? on 10-19-2012 at 07:03 PM
Earlier this spring I brewed a big doppelbock (OG 1.102). I started with Norther Brewer's
doppelbock extract kit and added some extra DME and some light brown sugar to up the gravity.
Right before it ...

It's been quite a while since I've had one, but most everyone that tried it really liked it.
Considering it was one of my first few brews, I was very pleased. Even some people that don't

This thread inspired me to try something like this. I don't do all-grain yet, but I used
Norther Brewer's Speckled Heifer Cream Ale partial mash kit (I did BIAB) and added jalapenos as
described in th...
Posted in thread: Northern Brewer Bourbon Barrel Porter - How long to Oak? on 04-30-2012 at 09:31 PM
I have not kegged this before, but I'm sure that would be just fine. However, I would age it on
oak in secondary for a few months, then keg within a few weeks of when you want to serve it.

Do you roast and soak all of the pepper the day before brewing, then leave half there until
time to add them to secondary, or do your roast/soak again the day before secondary?

Lol, the "bubbles per minute" table would be nice! I do have a hydrometer, I just generally

contamination and lazi...

From what you've said, you're at almost 87% apparent attenuation, which is quite high. Unless
you added a very large amount of corn sugar or the like to the wort, I would guess that you've
got some so...

So about 10 days after pitching my 3L starter of Wyeast 2206 Bavarian Lager to my Bavarian
Dunkel (NB kit) I removed it from my temp controlled fridge and placed it in my basement closet
where it rais...

SumnerH, I saw the "Ancho Villa Ancho/pasilla/chocolate/cinnamon RIS)" in your signature and am
intrigued. It sounds sort of along the lines of New Belgium's Cocoa Mole, which I love. Some
time I'd li...
Posted in thread: Delaying lagering, any negative side-affects? on 03-14-2012 at 07:17 PM
Thanks for the input! I'm using Wyeast 2206 Bavarian Lager. I've been debating using the yeast
cake or collecting and repitching as you described, I'm thinking I'll do the latter. I should
be able to ...
