    I've been using a water bucket and ice bottles to keep the temp cooler. We're in a heat wave
    but I think it's hovering around 68. How long/quick should a 4.0% ABV ferment out? I know I
    could take mult...

    Thanks for the tip. I'm new to this and was going by the label on the vial. I did that for my
    Tripel but thought that was style dependent

    Best brew day to date. Hit my mash temp adding two cups boiling water. Only lost 1-2 degree
    over 60 minutes. Slightly exceeded my estimated pre-boil gravity and volume, but really hit my
    recipes estim...

    Well. Took a month in the bottle but I finally like it. Really hoppy. Why do home brews take so
    long sometimes to clean up ? I can't imagine commercial brewers wait for their beers to 'clean
    up' unles...

  • Posted in thread: Question About Dennybrew Mash on 07-23-2012 at 01:54 PM
    In my case, it's based on research and reading since I'm new to this and can't draw upon
    experience. And throughout my reading so much attention is paid to extraction efficiency. I do
    know the last ti...

    Thanks on the tip. I emailed White Labs about small batches and that was their recommendation
    as well. I'll still have about 1.7 oz of EKG hops left. Maybe I'll tweak my stout or do
    something else.

    It's easy, but first of all, stop wasting time waiting after adding the sparge water. Waiting
    does nothing but waste time. Now, as to sparge volume...until you have enough experience to be
    able to cal...

    How's this look? Removed brown sugar and went with a single 60 minute hop schedule. BTW it's
    such a small grain bill I'm not sure how to mash this for equal runnings. Newb. Should I divide
    it into 3 p...

    "Florence, Y'all"... ;)Looks good. If I wasn't dead set on getting burners to run on natural
    gas, I'd probably go ahead and order this right now...Find any? I have a natural gas stub out
    back.

    Thanks. I'm thinking this might be a better option for me. It's never very cold here so
    probably powerful enough even when I go up to 7.5 gallon full boils, right? Currently I'm
    boiling around 4 gallo...
