    Just tapped a batch of this I made with WLP940. I somehow got unexpectedly high efficiency and
    an O.G. of 1.050. I didn't want to dilute cause I already had more than a full keg wort of wort
    and didn'...

  • Posted in thread: pitch more yeast or just be patient? on 05-15-2013 at 03:34 AM
    1.018 seems too be high for that style, but I remember having a number of extract batches stop
    right around there. The problem went away when I went all-grain. What do your beers normally
    finish at?Yo...

  • Posted in thread: Wildest batch you ever brewed? on 05-14-2013 at 04:44 AM
    I brewed a batch that was inspired by Thai food. I called it a Thai chili-coconut amber ale. I
    started with a lightly hopped amber with mostly 2-row and a little crystal. I threw in a pound
    of flaked ...

    Well, BIaB it is then... No better time than now to learn... :DI think you'll find that
    all-grain is a lot easier than you expect. I know it was for me. Watch your water volumes and
    temperatures close...

  • Posted in thread: Are there any hops you actually dislike? on 05-12-2013 at 07:14 AM
    In general, I not to keen on American varieties. Although this is likely because I'm currently
    into malty and balanced beers and don't enjoy anything over .5 on the BU:GU scale. The only hop
    I ever us...

  • Posted in thread: Making extract for later use or split brews on 05-10-2013 at 10:46 PM
    First off, I have never tried this. Having said that, it sounds like an interesting idea...
    Except the no chill part. Barley is covered in wild yeast and bacteria. The boil sterilizes the
    wort. If you...

    This is one of those few cases where you can't do the something in extract that you can all
    grain. I would say you basically have two options:1 use a smoke flavoring in the fermenter.2
    steep a smaller...

    I'll answer my own question since the keg has been kicked now. The beer turned out wonderfully.
    It got lots of compliments from friends. It had no diacetyl and a great smooth round lager
    flavor.The ne...

  • Posted in thread: Squeeze My Lemon Summer Blonde on 05-08-2013 at 06:39 PM
    Chilling down 5.5 gallons of this right now. I used 7 lbs of 2-row to compensate for the low
    efficiency of my system and 2.25 oz of lemon zest because that's what I got from 5 lemons. Also
    gonna ferme...

  • Posted in thread: Stepped pitch questions on 01-18-2013 at 04:48 PM
    I recently picked up some out-of-date WLP800 dirt cheap and decided to make my first lager.
    Since the yeast was really old and mrmalty said the viability was 10% (or less) I nursed the
    yeast back to h...
