    I know you said you BIAB, but what kind of mash temp are you using? Try mashing a little warmer
    and maybe incorporate some flaked barley to give some additional body. My guess is a low mash
    temp and t...

    Do yourself a favor and make a KY Common. Can easily be done half oak. Super drinkable and
    quick turnaround. Rye and some black malt to keep it interesting.

  • Posted in thread: Noob question about using different yeast on 09-25-2015 at 03:38 AM
    Many yeasts will give similar results - in very high level and general terms, you can use a
    wide variety of yeasts and get similar results. So for a brown ale, you could use S04, S05,
    Nottingham, Wind...

    Your blonde was probably a lighter, weaker beer. Simpler sugars and may have stayed cooler
    during fermentation. You can also go with Plan B until weather cools off or you get some temp
    control - use y...

    I've used it a few times and it's usually pretty calm. I find it finishes very dry, will drop
    very clear with time and has more belgian character than hefe. Never had any alcohol flavors or
    needed a b...

  • Posted in thread: Is oxidation during mash a real concern? on 09-21-2015 at 02:29 PM
    I don't believe in hot side aeration. At least not at the home brew level. I certainly don't
    worry about it pre boil.

    I don't believe temp control is important you need a balance between knowing your temperature
    and using the correct yeast ....There is truth here, with a giant HOWEVER... temp control is
    probably the ...

  • Posted in thread: If I don't hit my OG on 09-18-2015 at 02:56 AM
    If you used an extract kit and used all the ingredients and have the right amount of beer, you
    probably just missed a measurement. What did you make, what's the recipe, how much were you
    off...Also - ...

    If you have a style in mind, I start with looking at BJCP for that style. This will give you a
    range for ABV, OG, FG, SRM, IBU etc. You can then go look at recipes within that style. If you
    know those...

    I had a friend's jalapeno porter - he secondaried on 5 whole jalapenos and it was really warm,
    but good. I certainly would not want it any hotter. I think boiling them you are going to get a
    ton of he...
