    I would start simple till you get your system dialed in. Start with 1.25 gallons of water to 1#
    of grain. You have 8# of grain. That equals to 2.5 gallons of strike water. To hit your mash
    temp, you n...

    I'm brewing up an ale this coming weekend. I'm inspired by the Aprihop beer from DFH. This
    isn't a clone by any means. This is my grain bill:10 gallon batch:20# Marris Otter8 oz Thomas

    My first Smash was a MO/Amarillo. I did 10 gallons. It was great. One of the best beers I've
    brewed to date. While I'm with the OP, I like a ton of hops in my brews too. This beer had only
    3oz of hops...

    I was going to take the tub of purée which is 2.2# and divide that into two fermenters. My brew
    will be a 10 gallon yield. I've heard that apricot can take over the flavor. I was thinking
    hops first t...

    I'm getting ready to make a spring beer and want to know if I can use this apricot purée in the
    secondary. The list of ingredients seem ok to me but I've never used fruit before. Anybody that
    has used...

  • Posted in thread: 6# DME and Dextrose on 02-08-2014 at 02:24 PM
    I've been all grain for years now and I started out as an extract brewer. I realized that I
    have 6# Golden Light DME and 3# dextrose laying around. I also have a few pounds of hops too. I
    want to use ...

    I just racked it to another fermenter. Left about 1 1/2 gal behind. The smell is a touch sour.
    I sanitized the crap out out the new fermenter. I also pitched a pack of US-05 just for a
    possibility of ...

    Yeah. I knew I was rolling the dice waiting for that long without any yeast. I guess I will
    just let it ride, smell it before I decide to dump or just roll with a sour. I've never had a
    sour beer befo...

  • Posted in thread: My first infection. on 07-13-2013 at 03:08 PM
    I'm confused. You didn't ferment your beer yet? How long has it been sitting in a fermentation
    container?I only fermented 5 gals out of the 10. I only have one basin sink in my basement so I
    pitched y...
