    Sort of a double Modelo. Looks like it will be good. Post your result.

  • Posted in thread: Should I pitch some more yeast? on 04-20-2014 at 03:39 AM
    Five points of gravity isn't going to make or break your beer, with respect to yeast pitching.
    Especially with a Belgian - a little more stress should lead to more Belgian weirdness, which
    should be a...

    Unless you're going to reduce your volume to 4.25 gallons, you'll need to replace the cornmeal
    with something else - I would suggest more pilsner malt. And as I suggested, unmalted wheat,
    unmalted bar...

    The Dampfbier recipes that I found here put the OG at 1048. Running your ingredients through
    Brewer's Friend, I can only get the OG to that level if I assume that you're making 4.25
    gallons. Is that a...

    If you want to get started with a kit, Brewer's Best has a Belgian saison, dark strong, golden,
    IPA, tripel, witbier, and caramel witbier. Every one of my students who has used a BB kit has
    turned out...

  • Posted in thread: Could sweet dextrins with low mash temp cause problems? on 04-17-2014 at 04:42 PM
    Sweet and dry tend to oppose one another. Light body tends to be in opposition to dextrins. Are
    you using CaraPils, rather than, say, Crystal 40L? Have you looked at any of Biermuncher's
    recipes,* fam...

  • Posted in thread: Irish red recipe advice on 04-17-2014 at 04:37 PM
    If the red color matters to you, roasted barley might bring that out more than the chocolate
    malt. And this is slightly to the hoppy side of balanced, if that matters - Irish reds tend
    toward slightly...

    This looks good. You could use something like Amarillo or Centennial at the 15-minute mark to
    bump up the citrus. Are you thinking about dry-hopping? Post your result.

  • Posted in thread: Is my Partial Mash Red Ale Recipe Looking OK? on 04-16-2014 at 10:49 PM
    I've never used Pacman, but the reviews are almost universally positive. I had planned to brew
    another this year using Wyeast 1450 Denny's or 1332 Hales (trying for a fruity American sort of
    flavor), ...
