Posted in thread: How many batches do you brew in a month? on 12-07-2013 at 10:39 AM
I started brewing at the beginning of the year, and I just brewed my 43rd 5 gallon batch at
home. Generally brew once a week. Though as many others have mentioned, sometimes it's no
brewing for two or...

And on that note, a British mild might be a nice beer to try and win some light beer drinkers
over with. They're more characterful than american domestic macro, though I would say

I second the Kölsch yeast recommendation. It gets nice and dry like a lager, and also throws
some faint sulfur aromas that lend itself to seeming like a lager. You could use all pils, or
add a little ...

I love this thread. I haven't been part of the early morning club in a while. Now that the cold
is setting in, I find myself staying in bed longer. But I've recently had the bug to brew brew

Well, it depends what kind I brown. I'm currently working through a keg of brown I made with

delicious. Dare I ...
Posted in thread: English IPA Partial Mash & Boil on 11-04-2013 at 02:09 AM
I think crystal is pretty important to the English bitters. I'd use some English pale crystal
in a British IPA. I have yet to try torrified wheat, but look forward to playing around with
it. I'm not a...
Posted in thread: Rodent proof grain in my basement? on 10-20-2013 at 02:48 PM
My basement had a big earwig problem this summer. All my grain is either in the plastic bags
from the malsters or the homebrew shop, then it goes into a big Rubbermaid tote. All my base
malts are in t...

sub out a # of 2-row for Munich. But I agree that all your numbers and ingredients seem to
suggest you would not have a thin beer. I would double check the accuracy of your thermometer
for your mash t...

A few thoughts:The recipe has a lot of specialty grain. I think the Munich will be unnecessary,
and your roast barley seems a bit out of place. When I think of barleywine, I think of a simple

Surprised the fuggles got so undrinkable. Perhaps they were overdone, but when I use them I get
a nice, soft fruitiness. Maris otter is always my go to grain for distinctly English beers. I
like to pa...
