  • Posted in thread: Carbonation mistake on my Russian imperial stout... on 08-12-2014 at 01:14 AM
    It may carbonate...what yeast strain did you use? The higher alcohol content may make it a
    little slower to carbonate, but if you've got an alcohol tolerant yeast strain it should be ok.
    When you carb...

    Thanks for the replies, I like the idea of splitting it and trying both ways Helper. First hand
    experience is always the best way to go I find. This is a heck of a topic to research on the
    forum, so I...

    Hello all,I've finally taken the plunge into lager making after a long time of making ales. I
    have a vienna lager lagering now, and I plan to bottle it at the end of the week. I don't keg,
    I only bott...

    Also don't sweat it if it doesn't come out exactly like nosferatu, you can make a damned fine
    beer that isn't the same but is still delicious!

    Could add 2 oz of chocolate malt, won't add too much flavor wise, but'll get your SRMs close to
    what you'd want

    I would suggest this: 12lbs 2-row.75lbs crystal 80.5lbs special B That should give you a
    starting gravity of 1.073 (very close to the 18P great lakes posts about nosferatu, while
    assuming a 75% effici...

    Three pounds of crystal 60 is a lot to be using in a 5(?) gallon batch, you're going to end up
    with something that's cloyingly sweet since it only contributes unfermentable sugars ie
    sweetness. I'd sa...

  • Posted in thread: Wyeast 2124: vigorous primary fermentation? on 01-23-2014 at 03:38 PM
    Hello all, I've finally decided to break out of the wonderful world of ales and into my very
    first batch of lager! I would like to use Wyeast 2124 (Bohemian Lager strain) fermenting around
    53 degrees ...

    Thanks for the input guys. I think my fermentation temps were around 63-65 degrees for the
    duration. I've put the carboy in the basement which is usually right around 58-60 degrees since
    I figure most...

    Hey all, I started my first batch of mead on 3/2/13, just 15lbs local wildflower honey in 5
    gallons of water, d-47 and staggered nutrient addition. It's started to clear (I think) and I
    transferred it...
