Brewing Techniques is an awesome resource, thanks!However, my thought was to make a single, 10g
(maybe 8g) batch and split it in the fermenter.Thanks,In that case, everything looks fine. I do

I did something similar recently (July) with the second runnings of a barley wine I made. I
shot for a 1.090 OG on the BW, and then about 1.030 (ended up about 1.040 after some extra
efficency) for a ...

I've done a Ginger Peach Red Ale with Saison Yeast. Dry and yummy
Posted in thread: C-Brite No Rinse Solution on 11-21-2008 at 08:14 PM
When I used C-brite I weighed it. The packets are 0.8 oz, so 2 oz per 5 gallon would be
correct. Interestingly they have changed the labeling on the package and no longer call it a

Guess I should look into it a bit further.Lock away, mods!
Posted in thread: Which ale yeast to use? on 09-17-2008 at 08:24 PM
US-05 is going to be clean and not add much in the way of fruity esters, as long as you ferment

Posted in thread: Which of your beers do you always have? on 09-17-2008 at 08:06 PM
In '08 I've gone through a "double batch" phase, making the same beer twice in a row/same day
and tweaking them differently in subtle ways. Unfortunately, most of them have been big beers
and have tak...

Hey all - I'm interested in creating an Eisbock out of a barleywine I'm planning on making. Has
anyone ever had any experiences doing such a thing? Thoughts on freezing process??Cheers,
