  • Posted in thread: First time brewing a Weizenbock on 11-24-2012 at 09:43 PM
    Hey Dave -I bottle all of my brews, but made a weizenbock with a friend of mine over Christmas
    last year. Since he lives 3 hours away, didn't make it in time for packaging. He bottled some
    for himself...

  • Posted in thread: Having problems with Pilsner malts on 10-24-2012 at 02:21 AM
    Thanks everyone, I appreciate the feedback. I used Weyerman's Bohemian Pils - I'll try Castle
    Pils next batch and see if it makes a difference. I haven't noticed any taste issues, so I
    don't think the...

    Just finished a doppelbock today that consisted of relatively equal parts pilsner malt and dark
    munich malt, with some caramunich III and a little accidulated malt per AJDeLange's
    recommendations (exa...

    NordeastBrewer - I use the Mr. Malty site quite a bit; just went over again to make sure I
    didn't miss anything. The charts/subs there are for Wyeast and White Labs, but I did not find
    anything on dry...

  • Posted in thread: Dry Yeast subs for liquid yeast on 01-28-2012 at 04:04 PM
    Hey All - I've been dabbling with dry yeast for ease of getting hi pitch counts without a
    starter. As I was researching origins of the yeasts, I came across this site listing
    substitutions: I believ...

    My FIL, on our wedding nite as my SWMBO were leaving for our hotel room, pulls me aside to give
    me the following advice:"take it slow and easy"...wait, what ?!?

  • Posted in thread: Carbonation drops, good or bad? on 10-05-2011 at 01:50 PM
    I don't know the exact number, but the packages I get easily have enough to fill a 20 liter
    batch in 12 oz (approx 350 mil) bottles.As to the cost and ease - yes, bulk priming sugar may
    be cheaper, bu...

    I love 'em. If I'm not adding yeast for my longer lagers or spice for the holiday ales, I use
    them. Did my first 10 batches mixing priming sugar and siphoning to a bottling bucket. Was
    always worried ...

  • Posted in thread: Brewing California Common Beer on 06-07-2011 at 03:38 AM
    I've used Wyeast Bohemian Lager for Cal Common beers with great results - you might try
    Saflager W34/70 - purportedly the same strain. As JFowler said, keep it cooler, and give it
    some time (hard to b...

  • Posted in thread: red wheat brew on 04-29-2011 at 03:43 AM
    A wit is a good way to start, but you can use wheat like an adjunct in most beers. I use my
    dad's raw wheat all the time, but always do a cereal mash to make sure it converts. Wheat in
    western Ks is p...
