    I have a pot that can do a partial boil, its around 12-13 litres and I am planning on getting a
    much bigger pot, around 17 litres.This is due to the fact that I want to do small batches of
    some IIPA a...

    The coopers kits are great and you know what, the brew enhancer 2 is a good cheap way to get
    your fermentables up. I wouldn't hold back on adding some DME at all to boost the ABV if your
    looking for a...

    This is exactly the thread I need.I have a 10 litre pot I use for boiling hops, topping up with
    about 12 litres after the boil. I imagine I am also watering down my hoppy wort but you should
    be able t...

    Yo!So, have started working more with speciality grains and adding hops to Coopers kits to
    boost flavor and get something that I want to drink. My latest brew is this: Please check it
    out.Anywho, I ...

    So here is my recipe that I laid down. I need to gauge whether I decrease my dry hops on this
    beer.I was aiming to create a unique black beer, with a hint of smoke, some coffee, chocolate
    and then a s...

  • Posted in thread: slow or stuck fermentation? on 05-03-2012 at 07:27 PM
    My beer recently got stuck. Started at 1.052, stopped at 1.030. Air lock still bubbling because
    of the CO2 coming out of the liquid. I swirled, did nothing. I stirred today and pitched the
    yeast that ...

    This sounds about right.So I should try and achieve the SG with the water I am using to boil
    with for the hops?All the fermentables I have purchased from my LHBS are no-boil kits. I just
    heat it up so...

    I don't have a pot big enough to boil everything.Basically, all the fermentables go in to the
    fermenter, then I tip in my 3 litres of water that I had steeped the malt in and boiled the
    hops. I then a...

    Crystal Malt for 30 mins at 150 f in about 3-4 litres of water.After this, I had this boil
    schedule using...
