Yes, it is a lot of steps, but I always have the same amount consistent to each batch. This way I know I have a lot of viable yeast. If I use only slurry, it may not be enough viable cells.

I only have one jar of each yeast I use. From that, I propagate a starter for each batch. My method may not be right, but it works for me and I can keep my batches consistent this way. I use this...

My first batch was a double decoction, I thought it tasted burnt, maybe I'll try single. Hops are Hallertau. I left out the pilsner on this batch to keep the boil time at 60 to keep the color...

Perfect my German Weissbier

I'm trying to make a better Wiessbier. I have done 3 batches now, trying to tweak it to perfection.

I think I have it pretty close. For a 3.5 G batch:
5 lb White Wheat
1.75 Munich 10L

Thanks! It looks a lot better today. The big chunks are gone. Small flakes are left, like what you would expect in an unfiltered heffe. Can't wait!

Yep, I decided that I'd rather have an extra growler of summer time soda pop than evaporate it into the air.

Pitched the yeast. Done deal.

Missed my OG target

What do you do if your OG is a little short?

Since I only have a 5g BK, I scale the recipe to use some LME, and top off the fermenter with water.

All was going well. Mash wort collected, hit...

I don't mean to sound like a naysayer. I just think that it "could" happen to get an infection from hops. However, I'm not going to worry about it. Past practice (and a book or two) has told us...

Really? So if a fly, bird, or other bug craps bacteria on my hop plants, they are sanitary enough to throw into my beer? Sounds fishy to me.

I bumped up the 15 min to 1.5 to get me back to 40 IBU. The grapefruit IPA beer was 100 IBU with Simcoe and Centennial. So hopefully all Cascade will not be too harsh. The sample I tasted had a...

This works for me: I mash in a kettle on the stove. Dough in at 120. If I want clove flavor, let it rest 20-40 minutes. Direct heat to mash temps. Lauter first run, then batch sparge.
