    probably steeping with more water is better, as it will maintain it's temp better. :mug:

    My Spanish friends tasted it and called it Pulque. My brother calls it Apple Beer. I also call
    it delicious.

    During the rest I boil 7 gallons for the HLT. Its usually at temp right before the rest is
    done. Sparge is ...

    Well I have it in the carboy now, I really meant can I bottle now, rather than let it sit in
    the carboy. Does it matter?

    Well that's 3 per gallon, so it's likely gonna be strong and "clovey" but not too bad.Some of
    it will mellow out.... I'd suggest 6 to 12 months ageing.....Will it mellow out if I bottle it
    then let it...

    Well as long as you didn't use more than 2 cloves per gallon you should be fine. They're
    powerful little buggers and more than 2 per gallon can leave you with an overpowering
    taste......I think I used...

    It talks about a 1 gallon recipe which I used a multiple of five. 12lbs honey, yeast nutrient,
    acid blen...

  • Posted in thread: Pot for extract brewing on 05-25-2013 at 01:46 PM
    A good large brew kettle was my best investment.But that being said, my friend bought a cheap 5
    gallon pot at Oddlot. Like $17 (it's like a variety store that sells other stores over stock)
    The thin m...
