Ok - ready for round two. Had to throw out round one - way too sour and under fermented. This time, I'm going to mash 15% of the grain bill, and then toss it back in the mash tun prior to sparking....

Look forwad to seeing how this worked out. I don't think my batch is moving much, and believe it would be too sour. I've envisioned this more like a little sour (like a Berliner Weiss) than as a...

I have. Its pretty sour. I wouldn't say off the charts, but more than I was hoping. I think I'm going to rebrew a little differently. I'll mash 20% of the grain in a small container, add some...

Sour Mash Ale

I ran across an article on Kentucky Common Ale (a lost pre-prohibition act style), and decided to give one a shot. Unfortuntly, I can't seem to get fermentation started. Since its a sour mash ale,...

Offset probably wasn't the right term. Mask with oak, vanillan, and rye whiskey is probably more accurate.

Also, you should make a starter, or buy two packs of yeast. With that much sugar in the wort, some of your boys aren't going to make it when they hit the beach. Only way to win that battle is to...

I mashed with 6.09 gallons, and sparked with 2.17 gallons. Gave me 5.8 gallons pre boil. (For a 5 gallon batch). That made it 33 quarts for 19 lbs of grain, or about 1.75 quarts per pound.

Also,...

Totally agree. Other the the orange color, and maybe a little mouth feel, it's hard to discern the flavor. Just remember to bake the pumpkin at 350 for an hour. In addition to adding some sugar...

Just add it to the mash. If your doing a partial mash, add it to the grain bag. If its all grain, make sure to add some rice hulls to keep the mash from getting stuck.

I'm right there with you. I fermented my 2.5 gallon batch, in a 5 gallon carboy. And came within inches blowing the top off. All that sugar + all that yeast = extreme fermentation!

Bottled this tonight, and it is BIG. Used the full 2oz of my homemade "vanilla in bourbon" extract (for my 2.5 gallon batch). Hoping it mellows in the bottle.

Dohhh! Good point on my other glasses being brittle. I'll assume the guy who told me that was just too drunk to use the bottle opener at the time.

Also, great mention on the dishwasher door. I...
