    just reporting back on my beer for posterities sake:A good hefe, but I don't notice any
    appreciable difference using the flaked wheat along with the wheat malt.

    I have a Hefe in the fermenter now that I put a pound of flaked wheat in with my partial mash
    (elsewise, 2-row and pale wheat). I'll let you know.

    I, too, am curious about what you come up with. I have been interested in brewing a banana beer
    as well. (I've already tried one with less-than-excellent results, but it was also one of the
    first beer...

    Last year, my local brewpub (Dark Horse) came out with a 'split-batch'-type of offering, where
    they used the same grain bill with 4 different hop combinations - you could try all 4 in a
    12-pack. I was...

    You'll hear alot of people poo-poo partial boils on this forum, but I've had good success with
    them, and its actually my preferred way to brew because I can do it stove-top in the kitchen
    with minimal...

  • Posted in thread: Intentional Skunking? on 08-07-2013 at 07:49 PM
    ... and THAT is why I belong to this forum. Always wondered about this. Sounds like the
    consensus is UV does skunk it, but only with oils from certain hop varieties. (So find out what
    kind of hops Hie...

  • Posted in thread: Pumpkin Ale question on 08-02-2013 at 01:49 AM
    My 2 cents:I brewed one last year (and plan to do another again here very soon). I also agree
    that if you are going to call it a pumpkin beer, you ought to at least use some real pumpkin.
    After doing ...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone use this stuff for their coffee stout before? on 08-02-2013 at 01:25 AM
    It says its a concentrate. Unsweetened; the only ingredients listed are filtered water and
    coffee. The instructions are to add 1 fluid oz to 9 oz of hot or cold water and/or milk.On
    their label they c...

    So, basically... just keep exponentially increasing your culture by making repeated yeast
    starters. Presumably, with the DME used, its not for economic reasons, but instead because you
    want a more aut...

    I want to do a caramel latte stout for my first try at a stout. I'm not a fan of the dry
    'Guinness'-types, so I'm planning to to use both oatmeal in my partial-mash, and adding lactose
    as well.Anyway,...
