    There are some good amber recipes, like Revvy's Vienna Lager, Biermuncher's OktoberFAST, or
    KingBrianI's Caramel Amber that you could adapt to added coffee.As an alternative, you could
    start with a go...

    Try one when they are completely thawed. If it turns out fine, then assume that the others are
    fine.

  • Posted in thread: Help Altering Hop Schedule on 02-10-2015 at 06:22 AM
    As packaged, it looks like you would calculate about 80 IBU, and with your modified hopping
    schedule, the calculation looks like about 78 IBU. So that looks pretty even, and you would
    definitely get m...

    Yeast - You could try experimenting with Wyeast 2565 Koelsch or White Labs WLP029 Koelsch. Each
    has a reputation for playing up the hops more than the Duesseldorf strain. Further afield
    alternatives m...

    Have you looked at your water chemistry? What yeast are you using? Have you written to Rahr and
    asked for the Gravel Road recipe?

  • Posted in thread: Hop schedule for Bitter finish in Altbier on 10-12-2014 at 01:17 AM
    There are several altbier recipes that you can look to. I would use something clean and
    European (e.g. Hallertau, Mt. Hood, Liberty, Saphir, Spalt, Tettnang), get ~10 IBU from a FWH
    addition, ~15 IBU ...

    Sounds good to me, but I'd probably go up to a half pound each of lactose and oatmeal (use
    quick oats so you can avoid a cereal mash).For additional inspiration, you might look to
    Weezy's Dark Blueber...

    There are lots of people who mix 3711 with 3724, since the Belgian is notoriously finicky.
    Mostly what I've seen is things like 1-2 Tbsp. of French with a whole package of Belgian.

    Honey malt is nice, and almost completely, but not quite entirely, unlike crystal malt. Honey
    malt gives a honey flavor with some nuttiness and will self-convert, with a diastatic power of
    around 50 L...

  • Posted in thread: Aromatic malt on 08-12-2014 at 08:26 PM
    CaraVienne is not an aromatic malt, but rather a crystal (or caramel, if you prefer) malt. It
    adds body, mouthfeel, sweetness, and flavor (slightly toasty). It is a typical addition of
    Belgian (and ma...
