    I planted a couple cascade rhizomes in a planter box around beginning of April. I make my own
    fertilizer/compost from spent grains and leaves from around the yard. They grew to about 16
    feet in 3 mont...

  • Posted in thread: Wanting my honey ale to taste like honey on 01-20-2014 at 01:34 AM
    I've done 10% honey malt in the mash, let it ferment for 7 days, pour in 1.5lbs of orange
    blossom honey (mixed with an equal volume of water so that it would pour and mix into the wort
    reasonably), le...

    You mention that you are doing the partial mash kit. Walk us through your brew day with details
    like your mash temp, and whatnot.A hot alcohol flavor can be a sign of fermentation temps that
    got too h...

    Here is a method I use that works every time. The below is scaled for a 5 gallon batch. It can
    be scaled up or down depending on your volume of beer.After fermentation is done and any dry
    hopping, col...

    tentative plan:X lbs US 2 row mashed at 149-150F for 75 minsY oz Cascade at 60 mins (2/3 IBUs

    Re the OP question:The BeerSmith default value is 1.25 qts water per 1 lb of grain in the mash.
    I mash 5 lbs of grain in a 3.25gal pot to do partial mashes, so using that to scale down I
    would expect ...

  • Posted in thread: Best SMaSH recipe you've made??? on 04-13-2013 at 04:53 PM
    The Styrians were a little old so I attributed it to that & tossed the last couple ounces of
    them I had thinking they were just bad. Now I know!My SG hops were fresh. I even made it a
    second time shif...

  • Posted in thread: Best SMaSH recipe you've made??? on 04-11-2013 at 04:07 PM
    I made some 1-gallon SMaSHs plus a bunch of cheaters that included various % of a single
    specialty grain (SMaSH+1 or DMaSH) in the mash. My favorites so far have been Maris Otter +
    Saaz, Maris Otter +...

  • Posted in thread: From 1 gallon to 5 gallon - thoughts? on 04-11-2013 at 04:32 AM
    I do 1-gallon testers and 5-gallon batches on the stove top. The 1-gallon batches are all
    grain, about 2 lbs of grain to reach a 1.060 OG or so. The 5-gallon batches are partial mashes
    and my largest ...

    Without a hydrometer or comparable piece of equipment, you are guessing on when it is done. 2-3
    weeks is probably safe to call it, but your next piece of brewing equipment really REALLY needs
    to be a ...
