Totally agree in that it is much like a dortmunder. I was thinking 0.5 lb Munich but any
suggestions as to the 2-row and pils ratio? I was thinking 5lbs each? I'm pretty confident on
the hop schedule ...

I'm working on a recipe for Sierra's Summerfest. I'm sticking with the malts and hops listed on
their website. Does anyone have any suggestions as to mash temp and hop schedules?

I'm sure this question has come up before and I just didn't come across it. I just got a burner
and large kettle so I can do full-wort boils now. I don't have the equipment to do a full-mash,
but do h...

Ok, last night I took a Brix reading and it was just under 5. According to the calculator on

I have some questions regarding bottling a Pils. This brew was my first Pils so I'm learning as

I just bought a pin-lock keg on cl for $20. I'm going to buy a new set of o-rings for it and
had a question regarding fittings. Some of the pics I see online show fitting kits with
springs. The fittin...

Thank you! I'm really looking forward to getting it in the fermenter. I did think of another
question. I'll be mashing in a large bag in a water cooler. When it comes to mash water volume,
what would ...

I'm setting up a recipe for my first ever partial-mash. It's a blonde ale with a bit more hop
character than traditional. I've brewed this as all-extract and it is very good. I'm interested

Just wanted to give an update on this beer. It is excellent! I was worried as 10 days after
bottling the beer had a very slight buttery taste. The taste wasn't there on bottling day so I
was worried I...
