  • Posted in thread: What other hobbies are you guys into? on 04-18-2014 at 03:19 PM
    What other kind of hobbies do you guys have? Me? I'm into grilling/smoking meats, baseball
    (mostly spectating!), football (ditto), and tuba playing. I'm only somewhat good at a few of
    those. The footb...

    Looks like a maybe a oatmeal milk stout or something similar.I'd plug the amount of extract you
    have into a brewing calculator to see what gravity it gives you for 3, 4 and 5 gallons. It may
    be a part...

    I think it's probably far more desirable than being the reason that your father in law DOES

  • Posted in thread: Calling Sherlock Holmes of Beer for funky finishing flavor on 04-18-2014 at 12:26 PM
    For whatever it's worth, I've never used the 5.2 stabilizer and only recently started using a
    few oz of acidulated malt in my mashes. I've never had an issue with mash pH though I've got
    pretty soft w...

    It's definitely a touchy subject with a lot of people and families. I happen to work in a place
    that is basically like working for the Baptist church (not that there is anything wrong with
    that). The ...

  • Posted in thread: First Beer - Primary Time? on 04-17-2014 at 06:42 PM
    3 weeks is my standard unless it's a very straightforward beer that is better young (hefes,
    blondes, etc.). Even if the final gravity has already been attained, give it at least two weeks
    to let the y...

    Milling is fairly trivial from most places that will sell you grain. As long as their crush is
    good, don't rush into getting a mill. A burner will definitely do you better in the long run
    since you ca...

    How hot is really hot? Hot tap water is really hot on my hands, but is not even the best temp
    for mashing.

    Nope, grassy off flavors should not be an issue at all. Even when I used to dump I never had
    that problem.Grassy notes can be an issue when using a LOT of dry hops for too long a period of
    time and so...

    Weizens are good starter recipes IMO, they are relatively easy to brew and quick to drink. I
    love that you're going all in and doing all grain to start. Certainly braver than I was when I
    got started....
