    for what its worth, my guess is that the 1056 yeast attenuated too much for a scotch ale - i
    brew malty styles all the time, but i don't use el chico - next time try a yeast with lower
    attenuation and...

    That would be a typical upgrade price for liquid yeast, maybe a dollar less than that. Sounds
    like you got a good deal that day. We won't be participating in this forum anymore. Best of
    luck to you. A...

    Gee. Same maltiness, similar fruitiness, same color range = "zero similarity"? Actually, the
    original question was about what was referred to as a "Double Bock." I did make a typo in the
    name of our d...

    Desert,Is that the Brew Your Own store in Tucson? Do his kits come with bottle caps and priming
    sugar, a la Brewer's Best? Same price as BB, but with liquid yeast? If so, that's quite a
    bargain.FYI, B...

    It's not adequate. You need to sanitize the secondary.

    OK, found a PDF version of the 2004 BJCP guidelines for beer styles. Here is what they say. I'm
    comparing category 5C Doppelbock with 19B English Barleywine:On maltiness:DB: very stong

    The BJCP site appears to be down right now, but Bocks don't have to be black (even hear of a
    Blonde Bock?). I could see where what your homebrew supply shop guy is saying could happen. He
    even could h...

    Yes, DME would be better than Booster. By the by, Mr. Beer is now selling WYeast slap packs for
    $5.99!!

    Booster is not only corn sugar. It's a mixture of corn sugar and malto-dextrin. The Mr. Beer
    basic kit comes with a can of hopped extract to make West Coast Pale Ale and a package of the
    booster. Yes,...

    Can't imagine either why you'd want to do this, but Brewer's Best has an
    extract-with-specialty-grain kit for American Light beer that's probably about as close as
    you're gonna get.
