  • I bought "mr. beer" and while I liked what I got out of it...I drank it all in an evening thinking boy that sucked, now I'm brewing with better equipment and the whole process is much more fun.

    Summer 2012 UpdateI added no chips...mainly because I think starting off with so many flavors
    is kind of crazy and makes it tougher to know exactly where the flavors were coming from. This
    batch is a ...

    I haven't responded to this thread in forever...I made a tincture with my smoked apples and
    added them to 2 gallons of mead, it smells fantastic and is taking on a great color. I have
    some smoked oak ...

    You know I actually bought some smoked tea from the Stash Tea people since there are close to
    me, the smoked darjeeling was garbage it was so weak but for mead...who knows.

    You know I think peated malt can be used in brewing but super sparingly. I made an imperial
    porter and used 3 lbs of cherrywood smoked malt and half pound of the peated and the smoked
    flavor was super...

    I smoked 2lbs apples and they taste fantastic, used applewood chips and apple juice in the
    liquid tray. I cored and cut the apples into 8 pieces. I think I left them in there for 4-5
    hours. I also smo...

    Do you guys have any idea how much residual sugar might be in coffee beans? I transferred the
    beer to the secondary (once bubbles were between 90-120 seconds apart) and added a half pound
    of coffee be...

    I'm buying some american oak cubes this weekend and 2 lbs of granny smith apples and right now
    the plan is to use applewood to smoke them with since that's what I have, any other
    suggestions. I'm goin...

  • Posted in thread: Hitachino Nest Red rice ale and Koji? on 03-22-2011 at 04:39 PM
    Hey guys, love this thread.Could you take the process used to make sake and instead of using
    rice, use grain? I don't really know a lot about Koji other than it breaks down starches.I'm
    also curious t...

    No I haven't even heard of that. I think Great Divide makes an all rice beer as well. Thanks
    for the reply.The basic premise of my question I guess is that would adding Koji to grain work?

    I'm a big fan of Sake, I live about 5 miles from the only Sake brewery in America. I love the
    smooth/creamy texture and started to wonder if you could apply the same techniques with
    grains.Obviously i...
