Posted in thread: spiced porter input wanted. on 12-08-2016 at 02:19 AM
Since I hate licorice I would suggest a different spice. I have used Coriander once. And orange
peel once. Generally I don't like spiced beer, but am considering experimenting, one with
cinnamon and a...
Posted in thread: Blow Off Tube Question on 12-08-2016 at 02:14 AM
I leave the tube in place until the beer is done. If there is a lot of blow off I change out
the catch container. I soak the tube in oxyclean and flush with a lot of fresh water to clear

When you move the carboy for the transfer, do it early and let it sit there for at least a

hand mill, o...

or oxygen c...
Posted in thread: Mashed too high - FG 1.021 - Any yeast suggestions to dry it out? on 12-07-2016 at 11:35 PM
I guess it is a stalled fermentation as it's no longer fermenting! Sounds like hop tea to try
and balance it out a bit. I'll take a pass on the brett.Unless anyone knows of an enzyme that
may break th...

I went a common route. 5 gallon batches. 20 qt stockpot on the stove with extract kits. Bought
the 30 qt (7.5 gallon) turkey fryer kit. Accounting for boil off I needed almost 7 gallons to
start. I ha...
