  • Posted in thread: First ever brew day with photos! on 08-11-2012 at 08:02 PM
    Update: 17 days later, the beer has cleared up quite nicely! Hard to tell from the photo
    though. Should be bottling later tonight...

    Hmmm...since the OP said this mix was a "byproduct" of a project, I am assuming he/she is not
    primarily brewing this hooch for consumption.So of course my question is: what kind of
    mad-scientist stuff...

    Yes, it would be helpful if you could clarify your intentions. If you don't plan to bottle the
    remaining 3 gallons immediately, what do you plan on doing with it? By adding the sugar you

    updated with their final results.

    One nit to pick here-- the origin of the bean has little to do with the roast.You are correct
    about that, but beans from the regions I suggested are almost always roasted heavily because
    that type of ...

  • Posted in thread: I forgot the malt syrup... Salvageable? Help! on 08-02-2012 at 07:30 PM
    I actually considered that at first, it tastes just like coors, or fermented water.Hmm, "The
    Finest Fermented Water" could be Coors' new slogan.Am I going to want to boil some more malt
    syrup and add ...
