    ^^ Thanks for the suggestion of using cornmeal. I've used instant rice from the grocery in
    other recipes. Also, Cluster to bitter and Tettnanger for flavor sounds really good.

    I brewed a cream ale a couple of months ago. The flaked corn per unit was more than the 6-row
    at my LHBS. It was an experiment but I don't think I will bother with "cheap" adjuncts again
    when I can ma...

    The Mrs and I stopped at a convenience store at the edge of town. I parked in the shade out
    back and the Mrs. was going in to pick up a couple of things. She asked if I wanted something
    to drink for t...

    Update on the recipe posted in Post #9: Started drinking this weekend. Matches the style well.
    Subtle malt and hops. Corn flavor is present but not overpowering. I think Perle is a good hop
    choice but...

    Sounds like you are brewing partial boils using extract. When you pitch your yeast you want two
    things: the right volume (e.g. 5+ gallons) and the right temperature for your yeast (65-70F,
    YMMV). How ...

    I use the sanitize cycle on my dishwasher also. Says "antibacterial", actually. No
    detergent/sanitizer in the dishwasher. Inspect and clean the bottles beforehand.

    IMO Cascade and Citra will not complement a cream ale well - too citrusy. Noble/noble-derived
    hops are usually recommended for cream ales so Liberty and Mt. Hood should be good choices.As
    it happens, ...

    For this batch: It is fermenting and you are making beer. Let it ferment for another week or
    two. Check FG with a hydrometer (see below). Bottle it using corn sugar or table sugar to
    prime: approx. .8...

    I am assuming you are talking about the screw off type caps. I tried it once but the top did
    not seal well and the beer did not carb. I think the secret is the little ring that is left at
    the bottom o...
