    Most supply shops do a good job milling your grain. Having said that, if you mill the grain
    yourself, you'll get much control over the size of the grist. Floury-looking grain is normal to
    a point. Loo...

    If one is expecting a vigorous fermentation, get some 1 inch pvc tubing, and use that for a
    blowoff. You could pass a bucket of peach pits through that no problem! Also, if one wants to
    duplicate a co...

    So, DME is basically crystaliszed malt extract? I'm a total noob when it comes to brewing
    beer!DME stands for dried malt extract. Same as the syrup, but with more water removed. Getting
    back to the ho...

    Using a yeast starter is the best start one can give their beer. For every 5 gallons of beer, a
    quart of good starter will work wonders. For high gravity beers above 1060, 1 1/2 quarts is

  • Posted in thread: Pellet hops in the wort on 01-11-2005 at 07:04 AM
    From what I've read, as well as alot of personal experience, I don't use a bag with pellet
    hops. The bag inhibits hop utilization. Instead throw them in, and when the boil is finished,
    stir in one dir...

    Don't fret. If you sterilize anything touching the wort, you're okay. Just leaving it to
    ferment is fine too.

    a Brewer's Best English Brown Ale kit.The wort smells like cross between a strong tea and baked

  • Posted in thread: What's the right way to sparge? on 01-08-2005 at 08:33 AM
    I'm getting ready to do my first all grain batch. I've read differing views on sparging. It
    seems all that is required is to rinse the grain bed, but one author says you should have 1",
    2", or even mo...

    [QUOTE=rono73]Hi there. I recently brewed my first batch, a German Pilsner, and I did
    everything right except I didn't realize I needed to put water in the fermentation lock. After
    4 days, I realized ...
