Posted in thread: High FG in my Dunkel, but tastes just right? on 05-07-2015 at 12:33 AM
I'm not new, but I'm no expert. This is about batch 50, but only my second dunkel. I don't
think this is a dunkel specific issue though. The OG was 1.060, from memory. I have it written
down, I'm just...

Just what seems like a random thing, but I bottled a Munich Dunkel last night that had a FG

Pressure canning wort is exactly what I do. I borrow a canner from my mom that will hold 7

I was brewing a brown ale and decided to rack a gallon of it onto some de-oiled natural peanut
butter (mixed 7 oz. peanut butter with 1 cup of boiling water to pasteurize and make it

The method I was using recommended using 5.5 quarts for the 4 pounds of grain, or 1.375
quarts/pound. This fits nicely in a two gallon beverage cooler, which is what I use for my
