    He's checked his thermometers, two different ones and they match.Ah, I missed that. That's what
    I get for offering my opinion before I've had my coffee!

    So I might have missed it, but I didn't notice you address your thermometer. If it is off by a
    few degrees, you will obviously not get an accurate measurement of your mash temperature, and
    so a mash t...

    Yep, "cooked corn" is the most common description of the taste/aroma of DMS (dimethyl sulfide).
    The precursor for DMS, called SMM, is naturally found in malt, and converts to DMS at higher

    I'm having trouble getting the balance of flavors that I want in a spiced beer, so I thought it
    might work yo adjust color and residual sweetness to some extent, kind of like dry hopping. I
    did a smal...

    Yeah, what's the batch size? That's an insane amount of specialty malt and lactose for a
    typical 5-10 gallon batch.

    I would also say no. Why, out of curiosity, do you want to do so? If it's just to get the
    flavor, that would be accomplished by adding them during the mash (or steep, if you're brewing
    with extract).

    @prrriiide thanks for the advised. As I read on this article it has to be done before racking.
    Another question (to all as well). This recipe call for sparge - transfer to cooler and all

  • Posted in thread: Reasons to go all grain vs extract?? on 08-11-2016 at 02:45 AM
    Simply put, more control over your final product. You can control flavors in a much more
    fine-tuned way, you can use grains that you can't use in extract brews (certain grains that do
    not appear in ex...

    I think you'll be fine. I've packaged some beers after only a week in the fermentor, and
    although I wouldn't risk it with every beer, I never had a problem. As far as your co2 volumes,
    2.7 is medium-h...
