Posted in thread: Coming up with a recipe on 01-09-2015 at 02:45 PM
Search for Orfy's Mild Mannered Ale. It's a dark mildly and very good. I also second the above
post about Northern Brewer's online recipes. I use them (often with my own tweaks) all the
Posted in thread: Yeast Washing Illustrated on 11-12-2014 at 11:35 AM
I just wanted to share my success at yeast washing. The kolsch yeast (Wyeast 2565) that I
harvested from a yeastcake & washed on a whim 3 months ago went nuts in the starter and spilled
down the side ...
Posted in thread: Pitching Wyeast 2565 on 10-10-2014 at 05:29 AM
Wyeast 2565 is a great yeast. I typicay let it ferment all the way out to FG and then go
straight to bottling. There is no reason why you could not or should not extend time in the
secondary for this ...
Posted in thread: Favorite malt for single malt batches? on 08-30-2014 at 03:53 PM
I just did a kolsch smash with a kolsch malt from AHS. It seemed slightly breadier than pils
malt to me. I think of pils malts as being cracker-like. Hopped with Tradition and it came out
Posted in thread: Wyeast 1007 on 07-27-2014 at 11:47 PM
Did you pitch a starter? What was your mash temp? Your fermentation temps seem ok for the style

was. Also, ...
Posted in thread: brewing waste - hops, yeast, grain, water... on 07-27-2014 at 12:37 AM

carboys in the b...

Spend $12 and buy a bazooka tube. I've never had a stuck sparge with mine and they are sturdy
enough to support a lot of grain. Last weekend I made a rye kolsch with 20% rye and had no
issues; and I c...
Posted in thread: Karbach Barn Burner Saison Clone on 03-29-2014 at 09:04 PM
Barn burner turned me back onto saisons. I stayed away from them after I made one that came out
WAY too spicy and with an alcoholic burn (fermented too hot) and tried another saison (one of
the Icons ...
Posted in thread: What I did for beer today on 03-08-2014 at 04:44 AM
Brewed a North German Alt all grain in 4 hours (a new personal record), hit 72% efficiency, and
polished off a keg of hefe with the wife as I brewed. Good day all around. ;)Sent from my
iPhone using H...
Posted in thread: Bazooka screen as false bottom? on 01-31-2014 at 03:09 PM
I use a bazooka screen when mashing in a 5gal stainless kettle without any problems. A good
vorlauf is part of my routine. I've made several great beers with this method. Adding a grain
bag does help ...
