  • Posted in thread: Irrational Fear of Crystal Malt on 07-16-2014 at 05:34 PM
    The title says it all. I used crystal 60L once in a beer that didn't turn out well (for other
    reasons). Since then, I've made plenty of successful beers, none of which have crystal. I'm
    thinking about...

  • Posted in thread: beginner equipment for full brew on 07-15-2014 at 08:24 PM
    Hi All!I'm looking to start a small scale brewery company from my garage. What equipment do I
    need to start brewing? I'm thinking about buying the yeast and hops locally or growing them
    myself. Thanks...

    My basement is generally pretty cool in the summer (between 60-68F) and in winter about 5-10

    basement is li...

    I used WLP300, all grain, 50/50 grain bill with a ferulic acid rest at 113F for 20 minutes.
    Fermented at 62F and this beer is all clove, no banana at all.

  • Posted in thread: One (belgian) yeast to brew them all on 06-24-2014 at 04:14 AM
    There is no one-size-fits-all answer. There are multiple strains because there are multiple
    desires in style outcome. Your best bet is to read the manufactures description of traits and
    pick the yeast...

  • Posted in thread: Specialty malt "teas" on 06-19-2014 at 08:10 PM
    A more accurate method is to nano-mash. Use a 1 pint Mason jar. Put 95 grams of base malt and 5
    grams of specialty malt in the jar. Heat some brewing water to about 170F. Add the water to the
    grain up...
