  • my taste has been craft, micro and import since my first beer. my cousin was doing a home brew (NB Lefse Blonde) and i got the bug. I picked up the Mr Beer set up and immediately brewed the West Coast Pale Ale. That batch will be done soon and I got a refill kit with another fermenter as well. I brewed 2 gallon extract batches for 7 months- modifying Mr Beer malts and wrote 1 original recipe. I upgraded to 5 gallons with Northern Brewer, started doing all grain 1 gallon batches with Brooklyn Brew Shop, and keep my 2 gallon Mr Beer kegs filled with experiments.
  • I recently started a 5 gallon Irish Red experiment, where I am brewing Northern Brewer's Irish Red 3 times in a row and testing my consistency. I Brewed a Cream Ale after the 2nd Irish Red since my secondaries are full. Next two batches are Irish Red #3 and NB Extra Pale Ale.

    this is the extract i'm considering, only because the site says it can be used for making beer.

    I'm brewing my third annual Pomegranate Wheat and want to try a new approach. I'm gonna start
    with Northern Brewer's Witbier recipe, skipping the orange peel and coriander seed. I want to
    add a pomegr...

    it was one of the most fun and involving brew days i've had. i just ordered the mild brown ale
    partial mash kit from midwest supplies. after 1.5 years extract brewing, it's time to start

    I called it "partial mash" because we were mashing the steeping grains and 2lbs of 6-row then
    adding it to the extract kit. it may not fall under the true category as a "partial mash", but

    well- we brewed last night. we ended up mashing 2lbs of 6row with the specialty grains (.5lb
    caramel 40) and 6lbs of butternut squash. i'll let you guys know how it turns out.

    we will do a full volume boil for a 5 gallon batch. we are mashing 2 lbs of 6-row. the kit also
    includes specialty grains that are meant for steeping. how do we incorporate those?

  • Posted in thread: Partial Mash Pumpkin Ale HELP! on 09-01-2013 at 11:14 PM
    also- would it make more sense to do the partial mash in a smaller pot and transfer the wort to
    the main kettle or just do it all in the main kettle?

    my buddy and I are brewing Northern Brewer's Smashing Pumpkin ale. We got 2lbs of 6-row and a
    large bag to do the partial mash in. Our problem is the pumpkin. They are out of season. We do
    not have ac...

    I just got the ingredients. I decided to just get enough to brew one batch just incase I want
    to make any adjustments when I do my bulk order. I also decided to get the Wyeast American Ale
