Great input! I will give that a try on the next one I do.

It's argued that carapils isn't needed at all in an extract batch, so yes, it may balance out
the additional sugar. Might even be too much. It crossed my mind. But I figured it won't ruin
the beer. It...

It really depends on your brewhouse efficiency on what quantity of ingredients you use. The

Dextrose. When I ...

zest (just the very outer zest, no white). It turned out good, the lemon was a good match with
cascade. I ad...

This is exactly what Jamil Zainasheff suggested in a brew strong episode I recently listened
to. In that episode John Palmer also suggested that if you use DME to mix it with cold water to
Posted in thread: Yeast harvesting - a NON-slant method on 11-27-2011 at 05:01 AM
Maybe this was asked, but why can't you just mix up some DME and water, add that to the jars,
add the jars with loose lids to the pressure cooker and cook for 20 min at 15psi? Then turn off
the heat a...
