Posted in thread: Economical use of yeast in small batches on 05-19-2013 at 11:44 PM
One vial is generally about the right amount of yeast for 2-3 gallon batches. As long as that
beer is not too strong, you can just harvest the yeast cake. I don't bother washing out the
trub, as there...

The candi syrups will produce a lot of the same burnt-raisin flavors as the Special B and
C-120, albeit without the sweetness and body the malts offer. Not saying you can't use all

I don't know what size starter you'll need, but I wouldn't make one. Just make a 2-3 gallon
batch of bitter or mild and use the resulting cake as your starter. As mentioned above, if you
need the Cara...
Posted in thread: Left over hops on 05-08-2013 at 10:10 AM
If it's high-alpha, it can be used to bitter something else. Half an ounce of 15% hops should
give you around 25 IBUs, which may be all you need for many styles. You can mix different hops

I just got my most recent attempt into the fermenter. I'm sitting here smelling my boil kettle
and I am definitely getting something unique in there that reminds me of Heady. I have used 1

I have to ask. If you're not collaborating, exactly what are you going to do with 60 gallons of
Posted in thread: brewing with rosemary and mint! on 04-28-2013 at 05:40 PM
I used 6g fresh rosemary at flameout and another 16g as a dry-hop in a Black IPAish beer I
made, along with a little sage and plenty of CTZ. The rosemary is very prominent. The beer is
decent on its o...
Posted in thread: Smoked Peach Pale Ale Concern on 04-28-2013 at 06:17 AM
Peaches have the reputation of being pretty unassertive when put into beer. I've heard apricots
and mangoes do a better job of delivering peach flavor than peaches do, although I've yet to
