Posted in thread: Expecting low O.G. should i up all grains to compensate? on 05-23-2013 at 05:47 PM
Ahhh. I didn't know you were talking BIAB. You can certainly increase the grain bill to make up
for the low efficiency and the few extra bucks it'll cost are probably worth it versus coming
up with a ...

Well, to answer your initial question, it definitely won't cost you 600 bucks to get into
kegging. I started off with a 2 keg kit from Keg Connection for about $180 plus an old
refrigerator that I alr...

Is the goal for this to be 100% local? If so, it seems like a mead might be your best bet. I'm
not familiar with amaranth, but from what I read, it seems like it could work as a base.
However, you're ...

I'm guessing your efficiency loss is from incomplete sparging due to the limited volume. It
would take some interesting math to get it to work out, but what if you were to sparge as if
you could do a ...

I stand corrected. There's probably way more than anyone really wants to know in this article,
but it doesn't seem that ethanol is required: how is it that I can brew outside on a summer
day and not ...

Wait a minute, you haven't pitched yet? If that's the case, light probably isn't your problem.
From what I understand, the skunking reaction requires alcohol, so if there's none in there,
it's not sku...

Yeah, what beaks said. If you're worried about off flavors from aluminum, consider this;
there's a 99% chance that if you go into the kitchen of your favorite restaurant you'll see
plenty of aluminum ...

What off flavors. The OP never said *anything* about off flavors. In fact he said the beer
tasted great.He said his beer that was intended to be an IPA tastes like a Hefeweizen - a beer
style known fo...

The banana and clove that's so desirable in a Hefe is an off-flavor when fermenting other
strains at too high a temperature. If the ambient temperature was 68, the internal temperature
of the beer was...

The instructions aren't exactly off, just incomplete. 14 days is plenty of time for an average
gravity ale. However, they don't usually tell you that nothing bad will happen if you let it go
