    Do you have a home-brew supply store within driving distance? Most of the ones in the Atlanta
    area carry both extract and all-grain kits as well as custom orders. They are also a wealth of

    Kits are depending on what you want. I did well with several different brands at first. Once
    you have the process down and have run several batches. Branch out and try some extract recipes
    from the lo...

    Last week my son and I brewed 10 gallons of Wee Heavy and 10 gallons of BarleyWine. We used a
    Wyeast 1728 into about a 1.8 ltr starter for each 5 gallon carboy of the Wee Heavy (target was
    10.8% ABV) ...

    Started using Fermcap with this latest batch. Did 4 1600 ml starters, 2 each of Wyeast 1388 and
    White Cry Havoc. One drop in each and foam stay at less than 2". Did 10 gallons of Kolsh and 10
    gallons ...

    I work out of town and my son made up the yeast starters for some bocks we were going to brew
    last weekend. Unfortunately I had to stay over the weekend and I just told him to put the
    starters in the ...

    Using a Marzen with a normal ABV of 5.5% as a base, Beersmith shows (on a 10 gallon batch) for
    20 lbs of sugar to be 54% of the fermentable sugar. ABV at 10 gallons shows 17.4%.Maybe insane
    - all depe...

    OK - I think my plan is to make a Marzen as the base and add 20 lbs of Honey to get it over 51%
    of the sugar. Add the Honey to the carboys and add the beer. Pitch (Wyeast 1084) and start to
    ferment as...

    OK - so if I were going to use an amber for the base beer (and I understand I can use any style
    for the base) I would figure out how much honey I needed to get at least 51% of the sugar from
    it. Brew ...

  • Posted in thread: Braggot Questions on 11-05-2012 at 09:45 PM
    How do you get the honey into solution in the wort at what is essentially room temp once the
    fermentation has started. As my mash tun is essentially limited when it comes to high gravity
    brews, we mix...
