Not sure about adding Munich to obtain your color, since it doesn't exist in the original
recipe...Munich malt is designed for it's flavor characteristics, not it's color-dropping
abilities. It's slig...

Here's the general scoop:1lb of base grain = .6lbs of DME OR .75lbs of LME @ ~70%
efficiency.Use that to convert all your base extract to base grain. Since you're using "amber"
and "dark" extracts, ad...

That's a bummer. Have any extra extract lying around? I'd boil some up for a few minutes and
add it in to get closer to your target.

The only "truth" that exists in fermentation is things are gonna rot, whether you like it or

liking - produ...

Like I said, just kegged up a batch and it isn't conditioned by any means so ill let you know

Did a single hop PA with NS a couple weeks ago and it's conditioning in the keg. Had about a
gallon of leftover beer in the fermenter so I filled up a jug and am drinking it as I
type...this hop is to...

Dough balls in full-volume BIAB are rarely a problem unless the grain bill is huge. The reason
is because the water/grain ratio is so thin that there is always enough water to help break up
the bits. ...

I had the same problem when I was testing out a recipe for a beer to be served at my
wedding...turned out my mashing thermometer was 10 degrees too high between 140-160 and since
the recipe called for...

The great thing about a full-volume BIAB is that the water/grain ratio is so thin that even if
you don't sparge there is enough water in the kettle to shake those sugars off efficiently
during the mas...

All of these suggestions are good and will work, but in my opinion, go for a 10-15 gallon pot
and do full volume BIAB. In an apartment setting space and "cleaning space" is paramount: You
