  • Started brewing in 2009. I brewed two batches with a friend who has brewing equipment and years of experience. We brewed a Bells Two Hearted Ale clone that came out great, and a Red Ale that was mostly way over carbed. I don't believe that beer was finished when it was bottled. My friend brews more by the seat of his pants, whereas I'm a bit more detail oriented. So I started to collect my own equipment, then got side tracked for a couple of years. Finally late in 2013 I got the bug again, bought the rest of what I needed, and brewed 3 extract recipes in early 2014. I made lots of mistakes, but each brew was better than the last. This year (2015) I'm tackling all grain brewing. Very excited about advancing my skills and improving my beers. Could not have done any of this without HBT. This community is awesome!
  • Ambitious schedule for 2015. Wheat APA brewed in Jan. is in the bottle. Feb brew is a Zombie Dust clone. Later this spring I will tackle a high gravity RIS, and will parti-Gyle a Brown from the second runnings. I'm also planning to brew another IPA and a double IPA. That should hold me until next fall/winter. It's too hot to brew in Houston in the summer.

    You want math. Here's math. The first pic is the spreadsheet calc I came up with to determine
    the effect of the addition of a large yeast starter and the raspberry puree addition. I used
    the OG and vo...

    Let me try to say what I was just saying another way, with an example. Suppose you mash out 5
    gallons of wort with an OG of 1.06. Then you also mix up a gallon of sugar water with an OG of
    1.01. Surel...

    It takes into account the water added by the fruit. So when calculating the alcohol it takes
    the sugar as well as the water from the fruit.Yes, I can read. You stated that several times.

    Just ran across this while looking for something like it. Yes, I see that it's a 2 year old
    thread. Unfortunately I agree with the critical posts, and wonder if the author ever realized
    the flaw in hi...

    Did you add the puree to the mash, boil, or fermenter?If you remember the brand you used that
    would be great. There could be differences in added sugars, etc. Never seen it in a can
    before... but I ne...

    Has anyone tried this recipe with some strawberrys thrown in post fermentation? Also had a
    question about the wheat. I can only get Great Western white wheat or Briess red wheat. Would
    either work wel...
