Brewed this up on Saturday. Thermometer was busted so my mash temp was off, first too high then too low... Like a reverse step mash. Still hit the numbers within 3 points. Pitched a little over 1L of...

I have had one of these old stainless steel water extinguishers in my garage thinking I was going to turn it into a keg. I ended up just getting some corny keys instead. Then, last month, I ran out...

Bumping this thread because I too have found this a great and easy way to get a sour beer pipeline going. I did a doble doble for my son's birth using 28 some odd pounds of Belgian Pils and a touch...

Racked my first batch from primary the other day. Thankfully the chunky hunks of caramelized sugar were indeed eaten up by the yeasties. Now for the "dunked in honey part" and bottling.

I brewed a similar Bo pils today also based on Pope Jamil's recipe. I upped the challenge a bit by doing a short glucan rest, a protein rest, and a sacc rest. Reached each step with a thick decoction...

Sweet! Glad to hear it worked out. I like the idea of using nasturtium in a saison given the peppery floral hint it would add. It grows everywhere around here so it is easy to source a ton of...

Did you end up brewing it? I was looking to use some dried calendula in a mead or maybe as a dry hopped for a Belgian golden.

Having brewed this and being a big fan of the original by AVBC, I can confirm that the only "spice" addition is vanilla in the Summer version. The hard part to nail is the "crema" part of the...

I would agree with the above grain bill but you could add a bit of special B, chocolate malt, and or some oats. A few oz. up to a 1/2 lb. would do it. Mash high at 156 and it will be sweet and chewy....

I would pitch closer to 70-72 and let it get started for a day or two and then drop it into your basement. If you keep it off bare concrete and just let it rise as it ferments, you should end up...

Thanks for the input. I am just going to leave it and see what happens during the transfer to secondary. Perhaps instead of Moose Drool, I could name it Runny Bear Poo Ale.

I did a total bone head move and pitched a pint of WLP004 slurry from a chocolate stout into a pale-ish batch. The hyrdo sample looked like sewer water. Not sure there is a SRM to capture this one....
