Yep. It pretty much is the worst way I could conceive of to accomplish this. I just got to work
but I will attempt to write up a basic how to on what I would do to replicate that recipe
without all th...

It should work. By that I mean it will make an alcoholic beverage of some sort. Yeast can
tolerate ph of 3 pretty well and above that no problem. So the lemons should be fine. Look out
for vinegar not...

You should probably include the ingredients for the first beer or at least a gift certificate
that he could use to buy them.What does he need a stainless spoon for? I'm sure someone on his

If you want it to be all inclusive then a racking cane and capper are pretty vital. Other than
that I think you are on the right track.

Pre boil gravity is to low. In the recipe I posted I should have had a pre-boil gravity of
1.046 and I had 1.04.He specifically said it was pre-boil in this post. I see now why people
would be confuse...

The 30ppg figure I was using allegedly had an 80% efficiency built into it. At 100% I would
have used 37 making the math6.45 x 2.205 x 37 = 526pgAlso, how did you come up with 6.5gal? I
thought he sai...

Okay, I'm new to this, so somebody check my method and math on this.Shouldn't 6.45 kg of grain
yield closer to 1.085? Here's what I did:6.45 kg x 2.205 lbs/kg x 30 p/p/g = 427 pg427pg/5g =

First you have to pinpoint your problem. It could be a conversion problem as you suspect or a
lautering problem. This url should help. I have been working on my efficiency lately too and
I believe i...
Posted in thread: Saving and Reusing yeast from batches above 1.060 on 09-20-2014 at 04:51 PM
The yeast aren't tired or stressed from the hard work. That is a cute way of thinking but
entirely flawed. The reason to not reuse yeast from very high alcohol beers is due to
mutations. The higher th...
Posted in thread: Question regarding Green Flavors and Timing on 09-19-2014 at 05:41 PM
Fermentation times are yeast dependant as well as temp and wort composition dependant. Some
yeast are fully capable of fermenting a 1.054 OG beer in 5 days whilst others may take 3 weeks.
