Posted in thread: Weyerman Melanoidin vs Dingeman's Aromatic: same thing? on 05-23-2008 at 11:23 PM
Are these two things essentially the same, just from different companies?And just what are
they? Are they just darker kilned versions of Munich, or is there something fancy about the
process in making...

Any recommendations on what I can do to improve the recipe, specialty grains, etc.?I realize
you're posting in the extract forum, but if you ever start mashing, one thing you might want to
try (I know...
Posted in thread: Decoction mash: boil grist? What about tannins? on 02-08-2008 at 10:48 PM
Just curious about decoction mashes. Do you really boil grist? I was always under the
impression that I don't want grist temps to exceed 170F or so, or else I'd extract bad-tasting
stuff from the husk...

Instead of the lime zest, you might want to see if you can find some Kaffir lime leaves
instead. If you manage to grab any of the pith with your zest it can produce a real bitter
flavor.The thought of...

Why the heck would you want to clone tequiza, that stuff is so crappy they dont even sell it in
gas stations around here any more.I can't speak for extexan, but I'm making (a fairly close
copy of) thi...

This is remarkably similar to my very next brew, except I'll be using Wyeast 2206 (german lager
yeast; half the purpose of this brew is to grow a big cake for my upcoming dopplebock), and
instead of l...

If you had the time, I would seriously consider brewing a lower-gravity beer (say around 1.045)
to build up a yeast cake large enough for your RIS.I just did something like that. I had a

Differing software might be assuming a different point in the boil where you add the extract?
(i.e. maybe Recipator thinks you're adding it at 60, and ProMash thinks you're adding it at
end?) Just an ...
Posted in thread: LME vs DME... either/or or Both on 12-06-2007 at 10:32 PM
I get the impression there's more variety to select from, with LME. I just used some Munich
LME, for example, and have never even heard of Munich DME. It might just be my LHBS, though.
They just have ...
