    Keep us posted on the beer, and keep the ferment temps low. I like the grain bill.Thanks. Will
    do. I usually ferment lagers 48-50. Sound about right?

    It's that time of year. I thoroughly enjoyed this thread last year, and brewed something closer
    to the American version (5% caramunich, SRM near 10 with lots of Munich and Pils for the rest)
    for 2013....

    How you handle your genitals aside, different carbonation levels from the same batch is a
    function of the relative headspace in your bottle and any air leaks at the cap / seal. Assuming
    sugar got mixe...

    Typical 1.05 SG lager without a starter would ideally have 4 liquid yeast packages. The target
    pitching rate for lagers is much higher than ales.

    I once made a brew with Canadian Pale Ale malt and Special Roast 50, and the judges were quite
    sure they were drinking Maris Otter. :) I'm just saying...Sounds vaguely like what I go for
    with my typic...

    As far as mash temp, it depends on the beer. I tend to target the 1.010-1.011 range for FG for
    low strength Bitters and 1.012 to 1.014 for strong Bitters. 1469 is also a fairly low
    attenuator. For my ...

    A pound of biscuit malt might be a bit much.I simply use pale malt and medium crystal in an
    English bitter. Providing you use a good base malt such as Maris Otter or Golden Promise you'll
    get all the ...

    Just had a homebrew IPA that used Galaxy for dry hopping. It was a solid IPA, but the Galaxy
    made that one the best smelling beer EVER.

    I've been brewing for 5 years and never done an English Pale Ale. I get brewing ideas in my
    head (which often later turn out to wrong, and I change my opinion), and I'm currently thinking
    I will prefe...

    With all of that said, I've brewed this recipe twice. Both times I sized it for 1.090 (90% of
    original) and accomplished it by reducing the base malt only. The color was essentially the
    same and the F...
