Cleared up really...

Grains with Dry Malt Extract

Is there a partial grain recipe. I am so not equipped to do all grain and do not aspire to be. I admire the practice, but I just don't have the space or time. I use DMEs and grains and hops for my...

Well, the LC 140 Fire Pit Wheat got bottled yesterday. FG came in at 1.010. Right on target with what BrewersFriend.com's calculations said it would be. That FG says I have 6.5+% ABV. Once again,...

Yeah, I didn't think of the temperature variation. I wasn't really too worried about that. Some, but not much. Enough to ask about though.

I did the hops that way on a recommendation from one of the guys at my LHBS. The hops I used are 8.1%AA, so with me not really liking a really bitter beer, he suggested going 15 mins, 10, 5 and 0 to...

Brewing

Oh, and I left the hop sack in the fermentor. I was going to take it out after one week, but it's never been an issue before. Of course, I've never done an actual hop boil like this, so I didn't know...

Built and brewed my first recipe from scratch

The link should show the recipe that I concocted. I was going to bottle today, but it's still doing a little percolating. One small bubble every 30 seconds or so. So, I am putting it off till it's...

Yes, HME is hopped malt extract.

UME with grains and hops is what I figured would get me the most bang for my buck.

Thanks.

I wish I knew more about building a recipe

I'd like to make a Porter or Stout or any other kind of beer that relates to the season/weather. However, I don't really have a clue on "making" beer without a pre-built recipe.

Fermenting carboy vs bucket

I like the carboy for being able to see the fermentation process and the trub buildup and the overall process of the beer making. However, I DON'T like trying to get the wort into the carboy. That...

BTW, it turned out ok. Didn't add enough cocoa. Used conditioning tablets instead of sugar. Didn't carbonate like I wanted it to. It doesn't have good head retention. Tastes kinda like a Guinness....
