  • Began extract brewing in April, 2011. Made two brews, did one as a partial mash then started all grain brewing.
  • Recently brewed a PM IPA and RIS but had problems with both. Plan to learn by doing and brew both again, correcting errors and adjusting recipe to get the beer I want.

    those who have...

    cooled wort in the carboy for 90 seconds. Use a .05 micron SS diffuser at low pressure so there
    are no l...

    Should I add a second packet of yeast to this beer? Despite the activity, (see photo) am
    concerned there won't be enough yeast to produce 10% ABV.Didn't see 2 packets of yeast were
    required. One fresh...

    available s...

    Thanks. Just using Maris Otter because that is what I have. Don't know how MO will impact the
    flavor. Any thoughts? What do you think they might use or how to find out?Thanks

    Built this set up originally to use a Blichmann Auto sparge with a 10 gal Igloo cooler as a
    mash tun. Worked great but not any better than what I came up with, which was a lot cheaper.As
