I'll second this. With my big RIS's, I do all of my sugar additions after I have had a pretty good gravity drop. And these I add incrementally (normally 1lb additions) instead of all at once. 1 Gal...

Ahh good news. Bottled up my 2014 batch. Finished at 1.018-1.019 (using a $6 hydrometer, so that's as close as I can eyeball), but I had a little over 5 gal in my bottling bucket, so I had about...

I like my big beers (anything over 1.100) and so far lots of solid advice. I brew partial mash, so I have the opportunity to do incremental malt/sugar feedings.

If you're only brewing something...

If a sugar is not "cooked", IE it's clear, I don't see why you can't use regular table sugar. I've had other people on here tell me that same thing.

Just going by memory here.
-I kept the fermenter in the basement that stayed around 62-64 the whole time. So wort temps were likely a little warmer. Perfect!

Trying this one again. I think I'll do it every spring.

The 2013 batch did not carb, so I will not age this one in secondary, but instead, bottle it a few days after reaching terminal gravity....

Ok, so it sounds like it'll settle in the fermenter and not the kettle. I thought it'd settle everything out in the kettle and I was gonna rack off clear wort. Guess I'll see how it works later, but...

Used whirlfloc with disasterous results.

So I tried whirlfloc for the first time tonight. I do partial mashes on the stove (BIAB). Tonight I used 8lbs of grain and 7lbs of DME. I mashed in kettle one (2.5gal) and sparged in kettle two...

It's just a sugar. The yeast eat it and convert it to ethanol, so it's not like you're consuming HFCS.

The WLP099 brought it down to 1.006 for an apparent attenuation of 90%, actual 73% according to pint.com.au

The bad news is it doesn't have as much flavor as I would have hoped, which might be...

Gravity points are no indication of fermentability. Lactose adds points and is not fermentable.

Old thread I know, but it seems unnecessary to make a new thread.

Will there be a flavor difference between Pilsen and golden light DME for use in a barleywine or imperial stout?

Dry hopping then letting it age 1yr seems somewhat wasteful only because you'll lose quite a bit of beer if you use enough ounces of hops to make a difference. IMO, anything dry hopped should be...

He said they could likely order them, but if not, they can order enough smaller bags of DME to reach 50lbs.

My friend got there and told me they had DME and LME. I texted him if they had 50lb bags there. It might have been my friend you over heard. Also, I didn't get a price.
