  • I got into home brewing because I was watching the TV show Breaking Bad, and the brother-in-law Hank brews beer. I decided that I should try it since I am always wanting to try new beers and I can't stand commercial, plain "American" beer.

    There is no way I could do this in a 5 gallon cooler... To replace 6 lbs of LME it would take
    even more grain... I'd be mashing at less than 1/1 ratio.

    Alright I'll give it a shot, and I would love to do all grain for this brew, but I only have a
    5 gallon cooler which I have learned limits me to half batch strong beers or partial mashes.

    Well it increases the OG, and thus increases the FG, sugar just adds more potential alcohol

    No I think he had a yeast cake that sat for 4 days in the bucket/carboy, and then pitched on
    top of it, 2 days no activity... Did you leave a layer of beer on the cake to keep it moist?
    Have you tried...

    That's weird, maybe I need to readjust my beersmith profiles because if that is the case then I
    would be spot on, just a couple points shy.
