All good points. Didn't even think about the corn sugar altering the taste/mouthfeel, but it would. Still deciding whether I want to add the MD and taste or just take my best guess and add it all...

The plan was to just dissolve the stuff in the saucepan along with the corn sugar for priming only using the amount of water I'd normally use for the priming solution. May need to add a little extra...

I started out at 1.056 and ended up at 1.009. According to the recipe I was following, should have been closer to FG 1.013. Maybe my mash temp got a little lower than expected. Who knows. Tasted...

Maltodextrin at Bottling Time

The 90 minutes definitely seemed completely unnecessary to me as well. I'm also wondering how important that protein rest is with well-modified 2-row. Think he recommends it just to reduce haze? ...

Anchor Steam mash

I was looking in Szamatulski's Clone Brews book at an Anchor Steam clone that uses 9 lbs. US 2-row and 14 oz of crystal malt for the grainbill. What gets me is that the book recommends a protein...

david_42, did you use an existing full-size fridge, an existing mini-fridge, or buy a mini-fridge, before you bought the kegging equipment? Right now, I have nothing but a fridge, that I do not own,...
