  • Posted in thread: Recipe adjustment for higher ABV on 06-20-2014 at 05:46 PM
    If you want to increase the ABV now, you could add a little sugar (if you also rouse the yeast)
    directly to the carboy. Beware that this will increase your ABV without changing your FG, which
    could wi...

    Do you mean adjustments to make if you made this recipe again, but at a higher ABV? Or do you
    mean what can you do now to increase the ABV of your existing already-fermented beer?(Small
    note: in the f...

    I personally would let it have more time in the bottle. Sometimes a beer needs three weeks, in
    my experience, before it's really ready for prime time (though some beers are different). So if
    I were yo...

    I hear what you're saying, and it'd be worth trying an experiment making something like a hoppy
    Oktoberfest--that is, use a ton of a Vienna or Munich to lay the malty foundation.But another
    answer is ...

    APAs are a bit trickier than people give credit for--in some ways, I think they're harder to do
    well than an IPA. You have less gravity and hops to hide behind, so you need to balance it
    well. I also ...

    I agree that you should be fine with the pitch from a single yeast pack. I personally would
    slightly increase the Special B quantity and cut out the crystal 40. It'd be more in line with
    the style. Sp...

    That sounds like a good approach. You can check the nutrition facts of the product in question
    to figure out how much sugar is in it. Generally it'll all be fermentable if you leave it in
    for long eno...

  • Posted in thread: Ideas for Dark Cherry Quad on 05-28-2014 at 07:22 PM
    I think the above advice is spot on. You could consider using a yeast that is more spicy than
    fruity, which might allow the cherries to shine. Also consider adding the tiniest amount of
    true cinnamon,...

    Yeah, wheat makes sense, although I would probably go with a small amount of unmalted for head
    retention and body. This isn't a big deal, though.Unfortunately, I don't have any experience
    with those s...

    This looks like a great base. Thoughts in no particular order.Attenuation is key in a quad.
    It's not necessary to use amylase--that's what your pils is for. But to get proper attenuation,
    you may want...
