  • New to home brewing. Right now I'm doing extract brew with specialty grains. I hope to move to partial mash soon and when I get more space AG.

  • Posted in thread: dry hopping with vanilla bean on 01-10-2013 at 02:35 AM
    I did 1 bean in an Egg Nog Stout in a 2.5 gal batch. I boiled it for about 5 minutes, cooled
    then put it in. I had it in there for two weeks. Beer came out great, didn't really have the
    nutmeg flavor ...

    I'm going to be making a Jalapeno beer soon. I guess I'm looking for tips to using them.Its 2.5
    gallon batch. I was thinking 2.5 Peppers at flame out and maybe 1 during fermentation. I was
    going to fr...

    eit will take off for you just need to be patient;)Airlock activity. I'm going to check gravity

  • Posted in thread: Question about pitching yeast again. on 01-05-2013 at 10:35 PM
    I wouldn't wait more than a few days to test the gravity if you have no signs of
    fermentation.Well I took an OG reading. 1.074How did you make your starter? Seeing activity is
    not always there in a st...

  • Posted in thread: I might just convert small batch AG on 01-05-2013 at 10:14 PM
    I have been considering the same thing. I've got several stove top partial mashes under my
    belt, and am thinking 2.5 gallon all grain batches might be the next step.I would go for it.
    It's not much "h...

    I think the wyeast smack pack I used had dead yeast. 1) The smack pack didn't well 2) I saw no
    signs of activity or growth in the starter I made. 3) No airlock activity after I pitched it
    into my beer...

    Due to space and stove limitations I have only been brewing extract beers. I did however make a
    2.5 gallon AG Eggnog Stout....and boy was that delicious. My extract beers have come out pretty
    good, mo...

    Hello guys.Quick question. I made a 1.5 L starter with 160g of DME and used a wyeast smack
    pack. 1) I noticed the smack pack didn't swell after 1 hour2) I put it on a stir plate over
    night for hours a...

  • Posted in thread: Fading hops? on 12-11-2012 at 03:26 AM
    IMO 2 weeks is not enough time in the bottle. The hop flavor may be masked by the "greenness"
    of the beer. Try it after 4+ weeks.How are the other qualities? Color? Clarity? Carbonation?
    Lacing?I will...
