Mash for a shorter time. I see you're at 70 and 80 minutes. Try mashing for just 30 or 40 minutes.

To my knowledge the pros don't chill their wort when they whirlpool. I've heard of some breweries whirlpooling for 40 minutes or longer.

I made a batch with 4.5 cups of sweet rice and I have had no luck with it juicing out yet after more than a week in the container.

It smells boozy and yeasty, but there's no liquid.

I didn't...

Acetelaldehyde tastes like apples. Really bad cases can taste like apple cider. If it's really bad I don't think it will go away, but in my experience, a faint taste will recede with an extended cold...

I guess I always have to scratch my head when small-batch brewers make a stink about efficiency.

Efficiency matters if you're brewing 15bbl batches and need to maximize efficiency for your...

Many people who make wine out of blackberries and other berries/fruits don't boil their fruit.

That said, they're just throwing pectinase right into the fermenter.

I used 1 pound of raisins in a 5-gallon batch that had approximately 15 lbs of grains in it. It was way to winey for my tastes to be considered enjoyable.

I don't know how the book suggests using...

Blackberries are almost in-season. I'm planning on making 2 types: normal blackberry wine and sparkling wine.

I think I'll more or less follow the same recipe for each: Roughly 5 gals crushed...

I guess this goes to show you the differences in taste. I recently used about 10 oz (estimation) of JD in a batch and I thought it was a little overwhelming. Maybe 10 oz and 16 oz into 5g is...

1 lbs. of molasses is a lot. 1 cup can give off a strong discernible flavor depending on the recipe. If it was me, I'd use 1 cup or less. Another factor is that you will get considerable darkening...
