  • Posted in thread: Major fork up....please assist! on 12-10-2016 at 11:44 AM
    If it's not too much of a hassle, I'd get another pack and pitch more. Under leads to more
    problems usually than over pitching. Since you don't know exactly how much you lost, your guess
    is as good as...

    Although this isn't exactly what you asked for (specific recipe), in general, with appropriate
    pitch rates, temperature control and kegging, most recipes can be turned around in 4 weeks no
    problem. Fr...

    I recently posted a clone recipe for Nimble Giant here: still have some work to get it right,
    but it'll get you close!

    Agreed with jerbrew. Check the calibration of your thermometer, maybe you're mashing lower than
    you think. Are you using simple sugars that ferment out completely? Are you using a hydrometer
    or refrac...

    I am going to be frank. It is completely illegal. Also know that as far as I have researched
    there has not been a single case of a homebrewer getting in legal trouble for doing what you
    have suggested...

    I would definitely not go higher for the mash temp. The lactose is not fermentable which will
    leave you with a higher FG and more residual sweetness. Mashing higher puts you at risk for
    even more dext...

  • Posted in thread: Crushed grains shelf life? on 10-13-2016 at 06:31 PM
    I'd say at 10 months at room temp you're likely looking at oxidation issues. Best way to know
    is to taste a pinch of each. If it tastes crisp and sweet, give it a go. On the other hand, if
    they are st...

    Add a bit more water to your mash or wet the hulls prior to adding them or you may lose some
    volume. They absorb a lot of water

    Welcome back! I'm about to take a hiatus with the upcoming birth of my son. I've been trying to
    build a pipeline lately but fell short bc life keeps getting in the way. I guess I'll suffer
    through som...

    Fusel alcohols. Taste and smell like rocket fuel. Give bad headaches and non drinkable beers.
    Happen at high fermentation temps. You can usually tell by smelling the beer. If it smells like
    rubbing al...
