  • I started brewing in cabins in Alaska with no running water. I brewed 5 or 6 batches and decided that the whole process of sanitization and bottling was just too much to be enjoyable.rnrn15 years later, I'm married and settled down with better resources. I had long wanted to get back into it, but never ended up doing it. Finally, for my first wedding anniversary, my wife bought me a nice kit of an all glass carboy set up and kegging system.rnrnNew Years Day 2012, we brewed a partial mash Dunkel weizen. It was the next beer on my list when I quit the first time. I'm hooked again!!

    I finished mine and am a bit underwhelmed. I'm not sure if it is the yeast or the hops (first
    brew with Calypso) but it was earthier than I had hoped. I don't think pitching rate was an
    issue, it took...

    15 Gallon Batch of Citra IPA. SWMBO is getting a little antsy for upping her hop intake.

    In my experience of using brett by making step starters without a stir plate and just guessing
    at the cell count, underpitching can produce some pretty nasty off flavors (burning plastic,
    smoking elec...

    Thanks Vlad! All great info. I will try this type of decoction and see how she turns out. I use
    a HERMS system and fly sparge but temps are easy to hit if the decoction doesn't get me there
    and I alwa...

    I have a blend of C1, 2 and 3 I got from a friend. I did a big 4L starter for 3 days until
    krausen dropped. I was planning on another 3 day, 2L starter and pitching into a single hopped
    Calypso IPA (M...

    My recipe is vary close to yours except for the Munich and cara. I use Weyermanns dark floor
    malt instead of Munich and no cara. The malt isn't as aggressive as Munich. I use 2 pounds of
    sauer malt. M...

    Don't use the 5.2. 10% acid malt is too much for a Boh pils (or for any pils for that matter)
    so that recipe is suspect to me. I don't know what your local water mineral profile is, but
    using only 15%...
