Well, you wouldn't be boiling anything, just raising to somewhere in the 150s for the mash, and it would be a small portion of the total juice. And you in a sense do "water down" the apple juice with...

Steeping/mashing grains in juice?

I'm planning a graff for pretty soon, something very light on the grain side and heavy on the cider -- probably just a pound or so of medium crystal, along with a bit of 6-row if necessary for...

Weird, I've had a few of those and it struck me as a rather plain, even boring-ish beer but quite inoffensive. *shrug*


Here's a painful confession, I tried a Rodenbach for the first time...

Beer Nutrient for Mead?

Hi mead guys! I'm a beer guy but I'm thinking about branching out in this direction. I've read the FAQs and BOMM thread (though to be honest my eyes glazed over a little) and I'm wondering about the...

It's normal for a high-grav beer to taste sweeter over time, because hop bitterness fades while malt sweetness does not. But for it to taste a LOT sweeter all of a sudden is indeed very odd. Sorry to...

Hm, I wonder if it could be acidic enough though. Use a decent amount of sauermalz or lactic and I bet you could get the PH low enough to be safe, and if sacch can handle a sour mashed Berliner it...

Pretty sure oxidation doesn't create "puckeringly sour" or increased carbonation -- that sounds much more like an infection issue. Interesting info from Cooper's, tho.

I do my four minute shake rattle and roll aeration whether I'm using liquid or dry yeast. Why? Mostly because it's habit and I'm usually most of the way through it before I remember that dry yeast...

That's a decent amount of dex, and if my math is right Brett can turn the 1.002 into 1.000 with a whole 'nother volume of o2, or maybe even 0.998 with two more volumes. I'd put them inside a sturdy...

I might just skip the paint strainer during mash/sour mash and pour it into a different container with the strainer afterward. Your plan sounds fine though.

I haven't done a sour mash, but I've...

You have no cause to worry about diastatic power with that much base malt (which is good, because flaked and torrefied have none). There are differences in flavor -- unmalted wheat, including flaked...

Actually I love Schlenkerla and am well acquainted with the rauchmalz flavor. Certainly it's different from the flavor note that I'm describing -- I often describe it as "campfire" or "lapsang...

I actually do get "smokey" from a lot of (commercial) beers with large amounts of black malt / roasted barley / etc. Maybe I'm crazy, there's just something in there that tastes like BBQ to me.
