Thank you all for the advice. Brew day went great and I hit my mash and mash-out temps dead on.
I'll not underestimate black malt going forward though. I used ~4 oz and it is one dark beer.
I'm sure i...

I would drop that mash temp down to 152 ish......I really think 1.008-1.010 is the perfect spot
for these beers to end up at. With 1# C60 in there and a 156 temp for mashing you may end up
with a beer...

Hey there everyone,I'm planning to brew my first English mild for Thanksgiving and was hoping
for a little feedback on my recipe. Is the malt selection good or could I add something to it
for a little...

Thanks Big Ed for the reply. That definitely helps clarify the process for me. I'm looking for
that maltiness that is so prevalent in German lagers but have not been ready for the decoction

Skip the 122F. Try 128F/148f/168F.Big Ed, what kind of results can one expect from this
schedule? Would this yield a result closer to a Munich-style Helles?

From what I've gathered, doing a decoction just for mash out isn't going to do that much for
you. You want a thin mash for that. If I do a decoction, I usually mash in around 142 and then
use a decoct...

I'm planning to brew a Helles lager this weekend and would like to do a single decoction. I've
had good results with German style lagers using a step mash at 122F, 140F, and 156F. I would
like to impr...

I'd love to find a recipe for Bellerose Biere Blonde Extra. Is anyone familiar with this beer?
I've read that they use hops "from three continents." It's a blonde biere de garde style but
reminds me m...

I'm making the leap to a Pils this weekend and had a few questions about FWH.First, here's the
recipe, which is pretty much right out of "Brew Classic European Beers At Home." It's the
Hacker Pschorr ...

Can anyone recommend a good alternative for White Labs' French Ale yeast? I've used it in place
of 001 twice in a blond ale recipe and it is great. I like the very subtle ester profile that
