I recall two incidents during Covert Hops Society group brews that would count. The first was during the 2012 summer brew; the brewers in charge put an immersion chiller into Tin Man (the BK) to...

How did you happen to get raw wheat directly from a farm? That is a bit unusual for most people. Few folks these days have access to a farm like that. While it is a nice thing to be able to do that,...

On the advice of another CHS member, I've poured the batch back and re-pitched it with some Nottingham, just to make sure it ferments out.

Stuck fermentation, but already in the bottles

I've run into a bit of a problem with the beer from this month's CHS group brew. I went to bottle the porter (brewed 2 Feb 2014, OG 1.056) today, and when I checked a sample by hydrometer, it was...

My own tastes are admittedly quite broad, being fond of most styles when done well, but I have always favored malty beers over hoppy ones. My own best beers are a dry stout, a tripel, and an EIPA,...

Yes, significantly, though you want to be careful about unmalted grain, as it tends to produce starch and protein hazes in large amounts. There are styles which depend on using larger amounts of...

I would recommend letting it run clear. Most other conicals have a second outlet at the very bottom for drawing off the trub and yeast. I'm surprised this doesn't. OTOH, most other conicals are a lot...

Yes, then anything above 75 F would be very high for that yeast; the rated range for it is 65-75 F. That's a pretty broad range, and higher than many ale yeasts, but it's still not advisable to...

That's going to depend on the base malt you are using; you want to ensure that you can convert the maize as well as the malt. Many cream ales (including my own) are made with 6-row malt precisely for...

If that doesn't do it, try some amylase. You probably won't need it, but if you do try it, it will dry any beer out like a week in the Sahara.

Unfortunately, it will probably also kill any body...
