    Please, don't all answer at once!Anyway for those interested, after sniffing around different
    sources it seems I should be ok to just heat the clear candi in a pan and add small amounts of
    water to ob...

    My LHBS (finally) carries Belgian Candi sugar but only the clear variety whereas I'm hoping to
    use amber candi sugar for my upcoming brew. Can one make amber or dark candi by just heating
    the clear st...

    Must be fate that I stumbled across this thread just as I've been preparing for my first
    attempt at a caramel amber!What struck me about this tasty recipe though was the yeast. I
    thought S-04 is desig...

    Just an update for anyone following this thread or interested in making a Hoegaarden clone.The
    beer's been conditioning for ~5 weeks now and the sourness has significantly mellowed! It now
    tastes, sme...

  • Posted in thread: Attaching Bottling wand to the siphon ? on 05-31-2014 at 12:42 AM
    If I understand your question correctly, then no. If your hose is empty to begin with then when
    you first syphon your beer into your wand then there might be a little splashing of the beer
    coming out ...

  • Posted in thread: Total newbie question: LME or DME? on 05-27-2014 at 12:47 PM
    The trick to aportioning DME is to scoop it..... slowly. Trying to pour it as if you're pouring
    sugar will create a cloud of the stuff and cover everything with a sticky crust (i learned the
    messy way...

    Thanks gents.Looks like i overdid the adjuncts then (phew). This is the first time i've used
    the wb-06. My LHBS only carries dry yeast unfortunately and they recommended this as the
    closest thing they...

    Just tasted my first attempt at a Hoegaarden clone and there was an obvious and upfront sour
    taste. Not so much a “chemically” or vinegary sourness but more like a lemon juice
    kind of char...

  • Posted in thread: Aromatic Malt on 05-05-2014 at 02:41 PM
    Did anyone ever try this recipe? Was reading up on aromatic malt and came across this old
    thread. Recipe appears really tasty! Also, first time i've heard of watermelon juice being
    used.:mug:

  • Posted in thread: Advice on Ingredient Portions for a Hoegaarden Clone on 04-05-2014 at 02:41 PM
    Thanks Jayslay. Of the lighter ale yeasts, I can get US-05, T58, S33 and WB-06. If subtlety is
    called for with Wits then what do you think about just using 05?
