Posted in thread: Thin mash on 09-02-2014 at 01:09 AM
I accidentally left the HLT valve open and got way too much water in my mash. It is now to the

get new grai...
Posted in thread: Using flaked rice in cream ales. How much is too much? on 09-02-2014 at 12:56 AM
So will flaked corn and flaked rice not mix well for this level of use? Is it better to use one
or the other but not necessarily both? I know that flaked adjuncts like wheat, corn and rice
have a shor...

did you test the brix before deciding too harvest and crush.... It seems a bit early for cab
grapes...If you want to have any chance at making decent wine you need to buy a refractometer

the idea of som...

Oh that is good to know because I had this impression of corn sugar being the sort of "holy
grail" of wine making ;-)I wasn't sure what the fuss was all about, really. I'm sure some
people claim to ta...

Posted in thread: My beer comes out way too bitter on 09-01-2014 at 11:27 PM
I made a 1 gal batch following this hop schedule (but only used 1/5 the amounts) and it still
