Posted in thread: Efficiency drop with 6 row or flaked maize? on 06-14-2016 at 01:42 AM
Thanks for the quick response! The 28% was 2-row, the corn was 11%, but still I get what you
mean. I did a 90 minute mash for this one because I wanted it to dry out. I didn't think about
the corn hol...

I brewed a cream ale yesterday and it's my first time brewing with an adjunct and my first time
using 6-row. It was a very simple low gravity recipe. I always batch sparge using the double

I think your concentrate recipe ratio is way off. Most of the info I read said 3-4 cups of
water to 1 cup (16 tablespoons) of coffee, which is 3:1 or 4:1. I did 4 cups of water to 2 cups

I just finished a coffee stout and I used a simple stout recipe with about 9% roasted barley
(550 L). I didn't use coffee malt because I was afraid of getting those chocolate notes - which
I didn't wa...

Almost carbed to perfection. Still needs a little more time on beer gas, but the taste is
amazing already. It's creamy with only a little residual sweetness noted at 1.013. I'm glad I
ditched the coco...

Update: Dropped 5oz of cracked coffee beans today after pulling a sample. OG: 1.054, FG

I'm pretty excited about it. I followed my own outline blending a dry stout and an American
stout. I did only bittering hops. I've been tasting different coffees for 2 days trying to pick
one. I want ...

I keg in sanke sixth barrel kegs so it's a little trickier. I've been toying with maybe even
going 5 oz. I also thought about pushing it to 7 days, but I'm afraid the coffee beans would be

I used 4 oz. I didn't do any chocolate malt. I'm not a fan of the real chocolatey taste in a
stout - strange, I know. But the roasted barley was around 9% and a half pound of english
crystal 60/75. It...
