I didn't heat mine and I had no problem. In your case it can't hurt since you don't have to worry about clarity, but I don't think it's necessary.

I've never boiled, but I do use campden tablets as mentioned above. Your results may vary, but I seem to get better efficiency this way. I suspect there is enough chlorine/chloramine in my tap...

I'm going to give it another shot at some point because I've had some great beers with it since I tried it myself, but my first experience with Bramling Cross was not a good one. It was supposed to...

Waiting for the Sun - Ale with Cranberries

I've read a good number of cranberry beer threads (most of them wheat beers or stouts) which described the results as mediocre at best. I love cranberries, so I decided to give it a go anyway, and...

That sounds like a fine plan. I made the same mistake once, and I have the following advice: You extracted WAY more IBUs than intended with your lower gravity wort, so you're going to have to age...

+1 on Styrians. I even use them in my ESBs sometimes when I want a nice floral aroma instead of the earthy funk of EKGs.

The only safe method I know of to back-sweeten a beer without producing bottle bombs and still have it carbonated is to kill the yeast by some method (pasteurization or campden tablets) after...

There's no reason a gas RIMS couldn't be done, but I've never seen one. Kind of like the flash boilers some folks have made for steam mashing, but at a lower temp, maybe?

Really long boil for color and flavor

Hi all,

I thought I would post the results of an interesting experiment I tried recently. I decided to make an ESB without any caramel malt and get the usual color and caramel flavors entirely...

That said, if you let it age for a while it will probably smooth out a bit.

I think I'll try that since it looks like the gelatined-out stuff has already formed a pretty compact layer at the bottom. At worst that'll add a couple days clearing time, right?

I've heard of Simcoe and Nelson being paired before, but never Chinook and Nelson. That could be really interesting!

That's a lot of dark grain for such a small batch! The sour taste is probably the acids from all that dark grain. That's about the amount I would use in a 5 gallon batch.

It doesn't make a very good IPA on its own. As high as the AA levels are, it's too smooth and weirdly fruity. If you pair it with something that has good bittering qualities and use it mostly in...

Should be fine. I've gone as high as 90 IBUs in a beer with a 1.075 og without ill effects, but that might be dependent on the hop variety. If I recall correctly, that was with some cocktail of New...

I just throw the hops into the kettle during the sparge and let them hang out for the full boil. Because of that, my IBU's are similar (just a touch higher) to using them as bittering hops for the...

Steeping Dark Grains In Sparge Water?
