  • Started extract brewing back in the early 90's, from a startup kit at a LHBS. Been wanting to go AG for years, and finally jumped in with both feet in April 2009. Bought a 10 gal. boil kettle and converted a 10 gal. Igloo orange cooler with a false bottom for my mash tun. Been brewing an AG brew every month, and loving the new results. Recently upgraded again to a brewstand and 10-gal batches!

    IMHO, I do not think you will have any problem with bitterness intensity. Your 5-min Topaz
    addition will contribute the most isomerized alpha-acids, or bitterness.I think you will have
    hop intensity i...

    What was your recipe and your brew system?The medicine smell, is it like wet band-aids? That
    can be caused by phenols in the brew.. either from the yeast or from excess chlorine used in
    sanitation.I f...

    I think 5# honey in 5 gallons is dead on, and like the idea of matching this with a rye

    I've never used it. However, I had a few questions in my mind on this..The long flame-out sit
    times, and the...

    Distilled water is fine for extract brewing but it is not good for all grain brewing unless you
    are adding brewing salts (e.g. calcium chloride, gypsum, etc.) to get your ions and mash pH to
    the corre...
