    2ndGenBrewer - how many grams of yeast would you use, 2 grams?

    I know that 1 pound of malt extract will raise your wort/must by about 0.008 for a 5 gall
    batch. I've read that you shouldn't exceed 1.150 (is that 15% ABV?) for high tolerance yeast
    and 1.120 for low...

    to 2ndGenBrewer - is that because you think the alcohol tolerence of lavlin would be too low at
    14% for this? I didn't expect this drink to even approach that :| I'm very happy if it's around
    that ABV...

    Thanks that's a weight off my shoulders, phew! Is this actually a braggot though? There is more
    honey than malt and I've been reading that a braggot must be 50/50. It is essentially a braggot
    anyway, ...

    I found this recipe for a 5 gallon batch of braggot. I'm wanting to make 1 imperial gallon and
    need a little help converting the measurements.I know that 1 imperial gallon is 1.2 US gallon
    (an extra p...

    Thanks MedsenFey. So, residual gravity is because the yeast has eaten most of the sugars making
    the density lighter, and say my must was 1.115 and I used a 14% tolerant yeast that residual
    gravity of ...

    What is corn sugar? I'm only familiar with white or brown :P I usually only see caster sugar
    about. I think we must have a european/american difference in names. On the software I chose
    dextrose, whic...

    Hey folksI'm about to start my first extract brew but a question has been haunting me from
    starting. I have made the recipe shown below but I'm not sure if that can be right. Surely
    steeping grains ar...

    The syrupy twang is from old LME. Fresh LME apprently doens't have this twang.

    I found Wyeast Dry Mead Yeast #4632 it goes upto 18% apparently and is low foaming to keep my
    beginner hands out of any mess. I'd like to understand how to measure fermentables instead of
    ignorantly m...
