  • Posted in thread: First double decoction mash - mistakes and strange results on 04-22-2015 at 01:08 AM
    I'm not entirely sure of the science behind decoction mashing, but the one time I did it I
    overshot gravity as well. But it does seem to make sense that all the stiring and boiling would
    help break do...

    Thanks for the replies. Specifically teejo, thanks for clarifying some things. I wasn't
    expecting much if any harvest. I think I am leaning toward just leaving them in buckets. Maybe
    bring them indoor...

    Last year about mid summer a friend of mine gave me 3 cuttings from his cascade plant. When he
    gave them to me they were already rooted. I put them in 5 gallon Lowe's buckets for the rest of
    the year....

    Also look at fermentation temps. Obviously yeast strains have desired temps, but if you ferment
    on the cool side, and maybe cold crash a point or two higher than your desired gravity it may
    balance ou...

    I did a smash with those hops and it was very good. But I have to agree that they are subtle
    and don't have a big bittering charge. I really do love these hops though, Just trying to
    figure out how to...

  • Posted in thread: I accidentally froze my beer on 03-13-2015 at 11:16 PM
    I had this happen to me a couple of times because I didn't realize my thermostat had went bad
    on me. Out of the 3 batches this happened on I didn't notice any issues or off flavors.

    When I do cherry wheat I use the frozen bag cherries from the grocery store. Never had a
    sanitation issue. The flash freezing usually kills everything. You may have used too many
    cherries, hence the m...

  • Posted in thread: New to brewing, didnt add enough water! on 03-07-2015 at 05:41 AM
    I would just leave it alone and drink the beer as is. Other than dry hopping or fruit
    additions, I would not add anything to a beer that is through it's primary fermentation stage.
    Just chalk it up to...

  • Posted in thread: What should my first AG brew be? on 12-31-2014 at 02:55 AM
    I would say do a couple of smash brews, meaning single malt single hop. It gives you great
    perspective on what ingredients do to a recipe. I had a lot of trouble making my own recipes
    until I did smas...

    Try different size stir bars. I started out with longer ones thinking it would be better, not
    the case with my set up. It will be dependant on your magnet spacing on the fan. Also try
    different shapes...
