Whatever you use to bitter I would bring all that centennial and simcoe from 45 and 30 minutes to like 10 min or less, and add some more flameout or whirlpool hops - this is a big IPA. I do like...

I think this is a lot personal taste but I find I like at least 20% to feel it's noticeable. I have gone as high as 22% rye malt plus 8% flaked rye in a pale ale that was all base malt (basically...

I have no idea why they recommend that. IPA's should be consumed young IMO, and it's not like it's even that huge at around 1.070. My schedule for that would be something like 2 wk primary, 5-7 day...

It's likely going to finish high and be sweeter. If you take Nilo's data on fermentability, medium crystal malt will be about 60% fermentable as opposed to 80% for 2 row. So normally just a small...

It depends on the surface area of the pot, how high you have the burner turned up, humidity in the air, etc. As a ballpark I boil off about .75 gal per hr in my 5 gal pot on the stovetop, about 1.7...

Yeah that's pretty bad advice if that's what he gave you. Don't suppose you got a look at the grain, wheat kernels are noticeably different from barley.

It's not to do with efficiency so much as the fact that pilsner malt has more SMM, so more DMS produced in the mash. This can lead to off flavors like cooked vegetable/creamed corn. DMS boils off...

As long as you purged I don't see anything you really skipped. My only thought is that the burst method - i.e. carbing at higher than equilibrium/serving pressure - can take some tinkering to dial...

It does seem like you were thinking dunkel or O-fest.



Munich is a base malt, in the sense that it can convert itself and be used for 100% of the grist as in a munich dunkel.

Mark a spoon or mash paddle with gallon markings. Grain absorbs about .12 gallon per lb, or about a gallon per 8 lb of grain (unless you are BIAB'ing and squeeze the bag, that's more like .09 gal...
