Well Starsan or not...with extract brewing, there is more stratifying with your boiled extract vs top off water. Unless you really screw something off...your gravity readings SHOULD be what the...

I'm pretty sure a corny is 5 gallon. I normally secondary with 5 gallon carboys and then syphon off to a corny keg. If it's a good volume, the carboy will be all the way up, and then it racks right...

Another thing you can try: if your line is at 30 psi, it's good to hear if it's dissolving into beer. So the quickest way to force carb beer is to set the psi to 30, then vigorously shake the keg...

Well IMO, you won't tell too much difference with perceived bitterness. Examples like this are an indicator over how different IBU scales are *somewhat* irrelevant. They're good for making sure a...

Usually...but to determine the ABV in your batch of beer, you take the OG and the final reading. For many beers, you do assume it should be around what your OG reading is. However, the bigger the...

You liked your Kolsch it seems. I'd make a California Common: a good light hybrid in a similar vein. See what differences there are. Tonight I did notice my local package store has one brewer...

I'd just stop there. You're talking about some kind of questionable germinated barley...that's still iffy if it's an OK malt for AG brewing. You have plenty of other issues to worry about when...

IMO, the best mash temps are between 148-152. There are many complexities about brewing...from just looking at these temps, I'd say it would lead to a malty tasting beer, but it wouldn't account for...

No, protein rest has to do with getting as much fermentables from a base malt as you can. Most 2-row grains we use in brewing these days are "modified"...which means they've been bred and malted to...

That's one of the things I like about homebrewing vs pro brewing: all the methods are analogous, and you can geek out over the science of fermentation. Yes there are differences about the batch...

I'd just dry hop. Alpha acids are the main component that adds hop bitterness: and they are released from hops during full boil. Your boiling hops are the main ingredients contributing to IBUs...

Looks like the beer hasn't attenuated fully. +1 on not adding more fermentables yet (it won't solve the problem if the yeast is getting stuck). There are several factors that can lead to a stuck...

.5-1 lb dextrose is pretty common in IPA recipes. I would try the recipe as is, as trying to forgo/add more grain will change the characteristics. The sugar isn't just for FG, but does give a...

+1 on fermentation temp. My average fermenting temperature is about 60 now (for safale-05). I'd say reaching 70 during active fermentation can have "malty" to fruity to buttery flavors. Another...
