Nope, no dry-hopping. Fermentation temps are generally on the low end of room temp - 68 degrees F or so. The varieties of hops used have varied, but they have all been pelletized. Generally, we...

Off Flavor Help Needed

I've made around 15 batches of extract homebrew and they've ranged from OK to great. Generally, the batches that I'd rate "OK" tend to have the same off-flavor, a very faint earthy to grassy taste...

This is one of my favorite debates. I've tried both methods. I like to use a secondary because it tends to produce beers that look and taste cleaner. As a bonus, using a secondary usually prevents...

I have found the Grape and Granary to sell great kits at very reasonable prices. They put their kits together themselves, so the ingredients tend to be pretty fresh. They also use high-quality...

Single Stage fermentation - clarifying

I brewed a 3-gallon batch of pilsner about a week ago, and poured it into a 5-gallon carboy for primary fermentation. I'd really like to bottle it from the carboy, without racking it to a secondary...

Good to hear all this

I'm happy to hear there are other home brewers who appreciate the benefits of dry yeast like I do. I've used both liquid and dry yeast, and I have a hard time telling the differnce in the final...

Cider/Cyser Advice

I tried making hard cider a few years back with limited sucess. I think I added too much sugar and then used a yeast that gave an overly-dry finished product - there was very little apple character....

I'm just curious - why all the resistance to re-pitching? Is it just because of the expense of the yeast?

Repitch?

I'm looking at a similar situation with a high gravity ale. It's been in the primary for only 3 days, but I've been hearing a lot of bad things about Muntons. Would it do any good to pitch some...

I appreciate the advice. I won't be able to pitch the new yeast until tomorrow. Does anyone know if it will do any good at that point? The brew will be three days into primary fermentation by then.

Munton's Dry Yeast and Christmas Ale

I brewed a batch of Christmas Ale last night. It was an extract ingredient package from the local homebrew shop that was well-recommended by fellow brewers. The fermentables included 7 pounds of...

Bohemia Classica Clone

Does anyone have a good Bohemia Classica clone recipe? I think it would be interesting to brew because it has a golden color but the flavor of a dark beer. It's really good - if you haven't tried...

While you're technically right, the utilization will be greater if you do a full 5 gallon boil, you'll never notice it in the finished product. Now, if you accidently dropped an entire country ham...

Dry Yeast: 2 Packets?

Hey everyone

I'm planning to brew an extract batch of a lager-style beer. I bought a recipe kit that included a packet of Nottingham Ale yeast. I've got a couple extra packets of ale yeast in...

Boiling time and lagering

Just to check on a couple of things mentioned above:

1. It was mentioned that you boil for a certain time to get the "hot break" to settle out. I've been told, and it makes some sense, that when...

Carboy Headspace

I racked an Octoberfest into my secondary fermenter 2 days ago. I was having trouble keeping the trube out of the siphon, so I ended up with less beer in the carboy than I would like. There's...
