I'd mash at 156/158 because the alcohol is going to be low and you'll want the body. It's very close to my bitter recipe from a few months ago. I've gone heavier/more crystal malts and like the...

If you are making beer then it works 100%. Your expectations, at that price point, simply aren't reasonable. If you want a tight sealing system you're going to have to spend more. Leaky buckets...

Not a lot, probably a BU/GU ratio of .75. It's not terribly bitter. It's very malty though, with some sweetness. I love it. Must have more.

Interesting there's no amber or brown malt. I'd figure there'd be a lot of that in there given how it tastes. Any thoughts on that?

Fullers 1845

Does anyone have a recipe for this nectar of the gods? I had a bottle last weekend and fell in love with it. I've got to make a batch. Any help is appreciated.

Don't go PM then AG, just go AG. Why waste the time? It's not like it's a required step, plus you're going to have a hard time keeping the heat steady in a 10 gallon mash tun with that small of a...

O2 is needed during the growth phase of both the starter and the wort and is needed even with sufficient pitching rates.

It might be worth noting that the yeast I'm using is not a huge kreusen producer normally anyhow so the lack of kreusen on the stirplate is not remarkable. I did get activity within 8 hours and it's...

Some beers are 'done' in 2 days. I always give it a little extra time so the yeast can clean up after themselves but 5 days ain't bad. Some English ales are 7 days fermenter to cask. Don't worry,...

Kreusen with a stir plate?

I'm doing my first stir-plate starter and I was wondering if I should expect some kreusen as with a normal non stir plate kind. Being as it's constantly stirred it might destroy it, and as it's...

Even with a secondary, most beers will benefit from gelatin. Secondaries are a waste of time and just a good chance to oxidize the beer.

Don't be concerned, they dont' all ferment the same. Leave it in the primary for at least a week. If it were me, I'd go 2 weeks in primary, add some gelatin 3 days before racking, and bottle it or...

No, not any longer than without, the beer is just a lot clearer. I use 1/2 tsp in 300ml of water, dump it in, and rack 3 days later. I do it to everything, even the stouts.
