  • I have always HATED science and math, but since I have a love for beer (a passionate love for beer), I have come full circle! My friend and I just thought home brewing would be a hoot and bought a starter kit at a local shop.
    We started with a partial mash recipe that was suppose to clone Mac & Jack's African Amber. Well... let's say we learned a lot from that experience. The beer came out really good, but NOTHING like what we were shooting for!
    Then came a recipe that we slightly modified for a Honey Brown - it turned out great.
    And the last beer we made was a recipe that was totally from scratch for a Chocolate Coffee Oatmeal Stout. I will just say that it will be DAMN hard to top that beer! Everyone that tries it says that we should be selling - it came out that good!

    Can the OP verify if the Bru Gear has volume markings? If so, are they etched? I am torn
    between these two conicals and am having real trouble deciding which route to go. I like all of
    the features an...

    Did he make any changes? It's still is totally worse than the original. Layout is poor and
    there are a lot of features that are hidden. Now I have to go into "Fermentables" to get a
    quick glimpse to s...

    I, like most of you, was super excited about the update and just downloaded it right away. What
    a mistake that was! This is so much harder to navigate, features are gone, no batch size
    adjustment, no ...

    I have been considering pouring my cooled wort through a grease splatter screen when pouring
    into my primary bucket. In my mind, this would have the dual effect of aerating the wort and
    catching hops ...

    Yes, it is a Black IPA/CDA style. I believe it is all pale malt and carafa malt, with
    Centennials as the hop. So simple, but so delicious.

  • Posted in thread: Black IPA Help on 08-24-2010 at 10:05 PM
    +1 on leaving out the roast. I would up your carafa amount, instead. I believe Stone Sublimely
    Self Righteous uses only pale and carafa malt and all centennial hops.

    I just noticed the torrified buckwheat at Rebel too. This may be a dumb question, but is
    torrified mean it is malted? I was going to try my hand at malting buckwheat (3-4 pounds of it)
    for my Buh' Whe...

    Well AFTER I made this beer, I read that 3944 takes an unusually long time to ferment out.
    Still, you'd think a big starter on a lower OG beer would produce a little faster result.

    I brewed a belgian wit with Wyeast# 3944 Belgian Witbier yeast on 7/2, the OG was 1.041. I
    pitched a half gallon starter and it took off like gangbusters within a few hours. Well it has
    been over a we...
