Posted in thread: Munich in American Amber? on 08-17-2013 at 11:24 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 09:50 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

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

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...

Thanks for the advice. I've actually never used Victory before so I'm not sure how it will turn

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 11:17 PM
My first beer was a vanilla bourbon porter (loosely based on Denny's recipe, great stuff btw)
