  • My sister sent me a kit from Brooklyn Brew Shop as a Christmas gift, and I figured since I've always talked to my wife about brewing, it was time to put up or shut up.
  • Once I get the hang of the procedures, I'd like to make some wheat beers, mainly Germanic or Belgian. I would like to give a pumpkin ale or a chocolate stout/porter a shot sometime in the future.

    Buddy of mine was asking if I could make a beer that tasted like honey roasted nuts. I think it
    may be doable. Use some Maris Otter or Golden Promise, honey malt, dash of roasted barley, toss
    some gro...

    I've used bread yeast for some other batches and the flavors seem to come through better. I'm
    going to use four pounds of honey so I'm not sure it will be 50/50.

    Looking to make a 1 gallon test batch. Steeping 2 oz. ground coffee at room temp for 12 hours,
    then pour into 50-50 mix of honey and water. Adding 2 oz cacao nibs, then yeast nutrient,
    energizer, and ...

    There is such a thing as cola syrup available. If a beer was dosed with enough to hint at the
    cola flavor it might be good.Hmm. That's an interesting idea. Maybe just do a beer with base
    malts and low...

    Forgot about this. My brother in law is a great guy, but he's a Florida country boy and
    engineer. Guess that's why I like him. I think he'll enjoy the chocolate wheat beer I've got
    fermenting though, ...

    Built one up around a styrofoam cooler from Omaha Steaks, then did a dark walnut stain. Wood

    Yep. I have not tried it but I have been wanting to, I just might now that I am thinking about
    it. I believe you drop it to a temp so that a thin layer of ice forms on the top, and you just
    keep remov...

    I don't think there is any way to get to 25% with normal fermentation. You would have to luck
    out and get the Spartan Warriors of yeast for that. There are some that can get to 18% or so
    though. Beyon...

  • Posted in thread: Highest ABV you've gotten with bread yeast on 08-29-2013 at 04:19 AM
    You'd probably achieve a higher strength using bread yeast if you did all the early stage
    agitation, staggered nutrient addition, maybe even stir plate fermentation.How high ? No
    idea.....There's plen...
