Posted in thread: ISO - NG Dancing Man Wheat recipe on 06-14-2013 at 11:14 PM
Unfortunately, I don't even know where to start. I've never been a huge fan of wheat beers, so
I've never brewed one. But I agree, it's an amazingly excellent beer! I know a lot of great
brewers here ...

We take a yearly vacation to Wisconsin to enjoy the Dells and when I'm in state, I make it a
point to drink as much of the good local beer as possible. Typically, I'm not a big fan of
wheat beers, but...
Posted in thread: Old hops on 05-21-2013 at 05:52 AM
Long story short, we moved houses and downsized about 3.5 years ago. Until recently, I didn't
have a place to brew and so have been on an extended hiatus. Prior to moving, I purchased about
5 lbs of v...

I drain my tun into my kettle and immediately put it on low heat. Then I batch sparge x 2 with
little waiting (but lots of stirring), also draining into the kettle.From opening my ball valve

Posted in thread: Right hop variety? on 05-19-2009 at 04:28 PM
I have to second david's opinion. Those are the wrong type of hops for what you are trying to
do. The tettnang and hallertau are going to go far better with something darker as a bittering
hop (think ...
Posted in thread: Oatmeal Milk Stout - Extract -> AG on 05-19-2009 at 03:32 PM
I brewed an oatmeal milk stout in January and it turned out quite well. However, it was an
extract/partial-mash recipe and I'd like to do an AG version of it. I'm in the process now of
converting the ...
Posted in thread: Would long term secondary help with this? on 05-18-2009 at 02:13 PM
What temp did you steep your grains at? How long has it been in Primary? What is the
fermentation temp?One thing to keep in mind is that Wyeast American Ale is a med-low
flocculation yeast, as such, i...
Posted in thread: Milk Oatmeal Stout - FG 1.034 - no sign of fermentation for 5 days. on 05-18-2009 at 02:00 PM
Ok, few month later update... This has actually turned out to be one of the better beers I've
brewed. After a couple of months of aging, it's quite nice, although I don't think the oatmeal
part came t...

From looking at the Wyeast site, they are not terribly different, at least not enough that it
will make a huge difference in the beer. Both strains are recommended for dry stouts, so you
should be ok....

I am now a 100% believer in using starters. I just brewed an ESB (modified Fuller's clone) and
used WLP002 with a 2L starter. OMG! That stuff took off within a couple of hours and has been
one of the ...
