If you like that style then it is a perfect first brew. It shouldn't allow any oxygen into the wort because there is already a blanket of CO2 covering it. Hops really aren't able to contaminate...

When I say add the hops at 60 minutes that is the start of the boil. 20 minutes would be 20 minutes left and 15 is 15 minutes left.

Why not start making your own kits to what you like? I could never find exactly what I liked either so I started creating my own recipes from little parts of other brews. I'll take a guess at one and...

I was thinking the same thing. On a brew that you want to let age for a very long time you don't want to be cracking one open every month to see how the carbonation is doing.

I've also heard that...

If this comes out too light you can always add some vienna or crystal 20 to steep. The one beer that I didn't steep anything I was a little disappointed in.

Thanks, I really appreciate all the help. I figure I'll be jumping into this part of the hobby in about a week when I need to head up to the homebrew store for more beer supplies.

Smaller batches?

I'm interested in making soda but I also don't need four gallons of it at a time. Would I be able to scale it down to a gallon? Does the extract stay good after opening? I'm also a big fan of variety...

Nah, two pounds isn't much at all. I've done up to five pounds in one sock.

Is that a 5 or 10 gallon batch? Looks like a lot of 2-row but I would think the 120 would give you something.

Before brewing a stout you should buy a bottle from the store. There is no sense in making something you're not going to drink.

Looks closer to an IIPA with how much extract you have there. You could use the DME at the start of the boil and the LME at the end to up your hop utilization. That would also help keep the color...

I've heard of people waiting a couple days but have never done it myself. I don't see why there would be a problem as long as everything is sanatized very well and capped off from the outside world.

That's very good news, gives me a place to start. If it ferments too dry I'll just backsweeten a bit.


On another note, the tea flavor should keep this from tasting like rocket fuel right?
