Thanks for the quick response Yooper!I agree with what you are saying, but my hope was to boost
the ABV of the second beer with sugar. By my calculations I would end up w 10 gal of 4.7%

Took my first go on a new mash tun, and overshot my gravity out of the mash. I watered it down
before the boil and ended up with extra beer, no problem.I was brewing a german pilsner and was

Pitched at 66C. Held it for 36 hours. Raised it over the week to 70C to ensure that the yeast
finished out. Went from 1.080 to 1.010. Scary drinkable for 9% ABV.This stuff is great. Highly

I just brewed the Hop Hammer (double IPA) recipe from BCS. When I moved the beer into the

I am currently on my third all-grain batch (a munich dunkel). My other all-grain beers have

how the extr...
