  • Posted in thread: English Ales - What's your favorite recipe? on 05-31-2016 at 05:33 AM
    Not sure who's coming to NHC but I'll have my house Ordinary Bitter, a wheat variant of the
    Mild that made finals (basically the same beer I already posted, replace the flaked oats with
    flaked wheat, ...

    I say leave the centennial. Is that suposed to be 8 oz flaked maize instead of 8 lb?

  • Posted in thread: English Ales - What's your favorite recipe? on 05-31-2016 at 04:44 AM
    I tend to think of Aromatic as "Super Munich" and Biscuit/Victory as "Super Maris Otter".
    Slightly different characters. I wouldn't see Aromatic being totally out of place, but I
    certainly wouldn't ca...

  • Posted in thread: How many gravity points means bottle bombs? on 05-31-2016 at 03:31 AM
    I don't remember the exact number offhand and too lazy to look it up, but I think dropping 2 or
    3 points in gravity equates to about 1 volume of CO2. So depending on how it was primed, if it
    were to d...

    90% Maris Otter5% medium English crystal malt (aim for 40-80L, I like Crisp 45L and 77L, either
    would work great)5% lighter invert sugar. If you don't want to make invert sugar, use Lyle's
    Golden Syru...

    Brewer's Crystals is a blend of sugars that's predominantly maltose and approximates the
    composition of wort without the flavor. It's designed to increase ABV without impacting
    anything else (body, co...

  • Posted in thread: Asking for efficiency % help on 05-30-2016 at 07:18 PM
    It sounds like, if your gravity was above expectation AND your volume was above expectation,
    then your efficiency significantly exceeded your estimate. Nothing wrong with that, some would
    say it's a g...

  • Posted in thread: Why use yeast starter if yeast multiplies anyway? on 05-30-2016 at 05:43 PM
    The yeast doesn't have a limit on how many reproductive cycles they can go through. Denny's
    answer was talking about optimal flavor development in the actual beer as a result of the
    reproductive cycle...

  • Posted in thread: Bottling without Sediment??? on 05-30-2016 at 12:57 AM
    Filling off of the keg will certainly reduce sediment dramatically, especially after
    fining/cold crashing. There are alternatives to the beer gun out there. There's the thread on
    here ("we don't need ...
