"Thick" meaning decocting and portion of the mash that is , well, thick. In other words don't
just scoop out part of the mash from the top (mainly water). Dig down deep and pull out grain
with water (...

Melonoiden or Munich (lazy to decoct), also have used some acid malt- gives it a slight twang-

I've used hops 3+ years old. Vacuum sealed and in freezer. As long as they smell fine you're
good to go. Just be aware the AA%-age will drop......but u can always compensate by adding more

I agree. Think there will be a more of a "bitter bite" on your recipe than easy jack has. Go
later in the additions. I probably wouldn't use anything more than a 15 minute hop addition. If
you do thro...

Loved this one. Was intrigued too about a session ipa. I couldn't believe it was an ipa, was
shocked that this is listed at 40-50 IBUs (thought it was no higher than 30). But the hop aroma

Posted in thread: What can I brew with 8# of Pilsner malt on 05-08-2014 at 12:21 PM
Pilsner, Munich helles, saison, kolsch. However all these are yeast specific. I'd go with the

Anyone know the carbonation level for this? I've never had it before so I can't guess. Plus
I've seen people review this by saying carbonation was lively and sprite, medium, and also on
the low end???...

I added Brett and currants after 4 weeks of belgian yeast (down to 1.016). After 8 weeks on
Brett (down to 1.007-9) dumped roselaere blend into it. Come around after 7 months on
roselaere, I dumped Ca...

My "chemical" problem was plastic or even an electrical fire smell. CHLORAMINES!!! Buy campden
tablets which are cheap (think 100 of them were like $6) and use 1/4 tablet for up to 10
gallons). I do i...

Had a pound of these years ago.....cheap. Had good AA% at 9. Used it in English styled brews-
posters, stouts, browns, ESB, English IPA. When I was using it, there wasn't much info out
there (or other...
