  • Posted in thread: lager/pilsner recipe wanted on 09-20-2014 at 09:30 PM
    that actually seems pretty decent. when you say 5 oz in final 30 does that mean 5 oz @30? also,
    when fermenting ive seen numerous ways for the lagering phase being done timewise. how long is
    lagering ...

    Nothing too fancy with Lagunitas Pils when you look at their website, probably 11ish lbs of
    pilsner malt, and maybe some dextrine malt per 5ish gal recipe, ounce of saaz for bitter at
    90min, then anot...

  • Posted in thread: Belgian Golden Strong... Where from here? on 04-16-2014 at 09:40 PM
    I like to do similar beers like this myself, most Belgian yeasts attenuate very well. If you

  • Posted in thread: Pitching too cold then having to heat up? on 04-07-2014 at 01:59 PM
    Well for what its worth. An old German rule of thumb. Your pitch temperature, and your ferment
    temps should equal 30. So if you pitch at 12C and ferment at 18C, your yeast will do very well

    Well I'm no expert, but I'd say warm it back up to room temps, and drop it on your stir plate

    suspect you w...

    Well I make a starter for both brands typically, of course WL for sure as there is no nutrient
    pack. The way I look at it, if I'm putting that much time into making my beer, I'm putting some
    extra tim...

    Grab a copy of Jamil Zainasheff and John Palmer's "Brewing Classic Styles" sometime. He has a
    table of all malts and how they are produced. Gives you good ideas of possible substitutions
    and a basic u...

    started homeb...
