Brewed this up BIAB in a 3 gallon batch. Everything went according to plan with a 90 min boil,
but I just tasted it and I definitely have some DMS canned corn flavor going on. The only thing
I can gue...

Did you get any 'canned corn' flavor out of this only boiling the pils malt for 60 min? Maybe
that led to some of the intensity you were picking up from the apricot? I know a 90 minute boil
is a littl...

I'm limited to a 5 and 4 gal pot. So I started with a volume of around 4.39 gallons. I mashed
with 1.25 qt/lb for 60 min and then did a dunk sparge in the remainder of the water that I
heated in the 4...

Brewed this up this weekend as a half batch due to some equipment restraints. Scaled for a low
efficiency as it was my first run at BIAB but hit about 73%. A bit high on the og (1. 07) due
to the bigg...

Can anyone help convert this recipe to a BIAB 3 gallon, no sparge? This will be my first AG and
I want to try a half-batch with the equipment I already have as I'm limited to what I can boil
on the st...

Damn. Guess I'm out the $6 on this one... plus the money I spent on the 1l flask as that will
be way too small for a 1l starter if I'm to end up with a 1l final volume.Thanks for the quick
reply. If I...

Agreed, the og came out really high ~1. 056. But I thought maybe my reading was off. Followed
the Mr malty plan of 10 to 1 (100g to 1 liter total volume) then boiled for 15 min. Did I

Made my first yeast starter using wlp400 last night and woke up to find fermentation had blown
off my foil top on the flask. I'm not sure how long it was uncovered for over night. Is it
still OK to us...

Finally picked up the ingredients to start this beer this weekend. Is there a reason you add
the oranges at the very beginning of fermentation rather than after the primary fermentation is
done like m...
