  • Posted in thread: Munich in American Amber? on 08-17-2013 at 10:24 PM
    I'm making an American Amber next weekend and I'm looking for some input on the grain bill. I
    love the malty, toasty flavors of German Munich malt but was wondering if it would be out of
    place (or ove...

  • Posted in thread: Every dry hop is a gusher? on 10-28-2012 at 08:50 PM
    Do you do a thorough job of filtering the dry hop particles before bottling? I had the same
    problem until I started using a fine mesh bag to contain my dry hops. I believe the leftover
    particles provi...

    Thanks, any tips on fully attenuating wlp002? I'm already a little worried that 1.5 lbs of
    caramel malt will leave this too sweet. Might have to cut back on that instead.

    Hey guys,I'll be brewing a PM porter next weekend and I'm looking for a little advice on your
    favorite yeast for the style. I used wlp002 last time but had a tough time with attenuation and
    had some w...

    Could be your yeast. I know some folks have complained that certain British strains (especially
    wlp002/wyeast 1968 aka Fuller's) respond poorly to the pressurized fermentation during
    bottling. I perso...

  • Posted in thread: Northern English Brown: any thoughts? on 09-29-2012 at 12:46 AM
    Ah, I see. I think I'll go ahead and do it. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't going completely
    overboard with the stuff.

  • Posted in thread: Northern English Brown: any thoughts? on 09-29-2012 at 12:34 AM
    Thanks for the advice. I've actually never used Victory before so I'm not sure how it will turn
    out. Do you think 1lb is too nutty/biscuity for an NEB? Briess says up to 15% is good for
    browns. Maybe ...

  • Posted in thread: All-Grain: Saison de Erin (looking for input) on 09-21-2012 at 10:27 PM
    For the record, I used 3724 without a starter and it never stuck. Took a little longer than
    most of my beers but it dropped to 1.005 after 4 weeks. I did keep it at around 90F, however,
    so it may just...

  • Posted in thread: Too Much Vanilla! on 09-18-2012 at 10:17 PM
    My first beer was a vanilla bourbon porter (loosely based on Denny's recipe, great stuff btw)
    and the vanilla was waaay too strong at first. But after another month or so in the bottle the
    vanilla had...
