Sorry to bring up a dead thread, but I figured out a solution to this problem a while ago and
never got around to posting. I just took an 8' length of 18" aluminum flashing (unpainted) and
cut out slo...
Posted in thread: New Obsession: La Maudite (Unibroue) on 11-29-2010 at 04:51 PM
My attempt turned out okay. I used Ky's Maudite recipe shown in post 84. It came out way too
sweet (due to attenuation down to 1.021) and without the spice character I am looking for. If I
had it to d...

I forgot to add it during the boil. So I just made a syrup and dumped it into the fermenter. I
used 3 packs of yeast for one 6 gallon batch, and a yeast cake for the other 6 gallons. I made
sure to us...

Does anyone have a port recipe I could use as a start for a sour-cherry port? I have around 12
lbs of cherries I'd like to use for this purpose.

Well I couldn't find any 150 Crystal. So I am going with 1.5 lbs of crystal 120 and 0.5 lbs of
crystal 80 with 14 lbs of 2 row. I am going to try to brew up 24 gallons of this stuff today.
Wish me luc...

HiI am trying to perfect an Arrogant Bastard clone. After listening to JZ's brewcast, and
brewing Yooper's crystal 120 Clone I am hoping to make an amalgam. I'd like to substitute some
of my raisins, ...

I looked up the definition of SG (its basically just density with a small correction), and the
solution to this problem is pretty simple. If I mix equal quantities, I can just average the

The unfinished one is very estery. I think? It tastes a bit like the Belgians I make, there is
a definite spice note to the stuck beer. I think the yeast may have just became very angry, and
died. I s...
Posted in thread: Exploring "no chill" brewing on 02-06-2010 at 03:42 PM
Update. I brewed up 12 gallons of Czech pilsner, no-chill. I used 24 lbs of Dingeman's
continental pilsner malt and some carapils. 6g is stuck at 1.030 (that's my own damned fault).
The other attenuat...
Posted in thread: Mixing two beers - different gravities on 02-06-2010 at 03:31 PM
I have a bit of a conundrum. I currently have 12 gallons of Czech pilsner. They are divided
into 6 gallon batches. After 4 weeks at 52 F, one has a gravity of 1.029 the other has a
gravity of 1.015. T...
