  • New to brewing, always had an interest in it. My first couple batches went really well. They were beer recipe kits from brewers best so kinda hard to mess up, both were light beers.

    I am on a new batch now which is going to be the pride of my homebrewing experience thus far. I made the recipe up myself I hope it turns out good. Wheat beer 2oz Mt. hood hops. 3.3lbs liquid malt/wheat extract. 3lbs of dry wheat extract.
    1oz orange peel, .5oz coriander. Its in the primary now! hope it goes well.
  • The next brew I am planning on doing is an Irish Red ale. I have never tried it before should be good though. I have noticed that attention to cleanliness goes along way.

    I have also started to gain interest in kegging. It seems like bottling in the long run is way more expensive and can lead to alot more problems. I figure once your out the cost of the kegging equipment it benefeits you more in the long run.

    Thanks for all the input everyone. I am pleased to say that I kegged the wheat beer about 3
    days ago. I set the keg at 20 PSI for two days before dropping it to about 5-8 PSI for serving.

    Okay, so I noticed this morning the airlock on the primary pretty much stopped showing signs of
    fermentation. I took a hyrdo reading and it came out at 1.010 which is I think a good time to
    put it in ...

    Well one thing to consider is that when you use a liquid extrat only approx. 88% of the volume
    is fermentable solids. where as a DRY extract is approx 94-96% fermentable solids. This only
    comes into p...

    Yeah, I used 1/2 an ounce not .05 My bad miss print that the first time. Have any of you used
    the mt. hood hops for a wheat beer before? I thought it sounded the best for the flavor I was
    going for. I...
