  • 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...

  • Posted in thread: First time Saison brewer - bottled too early? on 08-03-2016 at 05:34 PM
    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...

    I'd skip Off Color except for the one offs, since you can get Off Color at Hop City.Wow, I
    didn't realize that they distributed that far from here!

    I'm bummed--I thought I had 30L, just have 60L and 120L. I'm brewing tomorrow regardless.
    Thinking it may be better to do a half pound of 60L and maybe a half pound of Maris Otter. It's
    already going ...

    As far as the color goes, that is adjustable. However, C30 and C60 taste different, period. You
    can't "dilute" C60 and get the flavor of C30. For your situation, I'd just use the C60 and see
    how it tu...

  • Posted in thread: Overshot mash temperature both times with BIAB - any tips? on 07-27-2016 at 04:21 AM
    Sort of, yeah? Like how much above my mash temperature should I shoot for? I had heard drop it
    in when the water was in the low 160s, but that might be for three vessel systems where you
    lose heat pou...

    Ummmm...don't heat your strike water as high on the next one...are you looking for something
    more than that?

    Over the past few years, a number of breweries have made pale/golden stouts as a fun offering.
    I think one was also included in Denny Conn and Drew Beechum's book, "Experimental
    Homebrewing." Those be...
