So the influx of 225g of sugar, which seems like a bit, won't affect the final gravity (and
alcohol) significantly?Sometimes it seems like brewing is very counterintuitive, which is
probably why I mak...

Just realized that when I took a gravity reading it was after I put in the agave syrup in the
secondary (instead of prior AND after), so I have no idea how much it will raise the alcohol

For reference (so that I can compare it to the 225 g of sugar I added with the agave syrup),
how much fermentable sugar is in a standard 3.3 lbs liquid malt extract?

So I added a bottle of Agave syrup to boiling water, stirred it for about 5 minutes, then put
it into the secondary with my hefeweizen. Then I looked at the empty bottle and realized I just
put 225g o...

Since it is thick like honey, I think I will need to stir it into boiling water.Any problems
with the heat damaging it?

Would there be any issues of adding agave nectar to the secondary (assuming it was "clean")?

I also stumbled across this in my attempt to not by a wort chiller. Last night I was able to
get my 3 gallons of wort from 212*F (approximate) to 120*F with an ice bath and stirring in 10

In order to speed up cooling of my wort after boiling, I have been stirring it with a sanitized
thermometer. My thought process was that since I was relying primarily on conduction to cool
the wort (i...

Can anyone convert this to an extract recipe with specialty malt steeping?I lived in Seattle
for 5 years and this was the only pale ale I've ever liked so I would love to make it at home.

I brew .25lb of Sumatran coffee with my french press. I add it when bottling. It's wonderful
and have won a few second place ribbons with it. The coffee aroma and flavor are awesome. I've
tried all ot...
