I made this recipe about a year ago. The only change I made was to use 6lbs of Wheat LME instead of Wheat DME. It was my first partial mash brew, and definitely one of the best brews I've ever made....

I agree, try and do more two row and less extract if you can manage. I've been following the deathbrewer PM method for quite a few batches now. It isn't any harder to mash more grain, in fact I can...

I just brewed an attempt at a 1554 clone today, based on some recipes I've read at various times online. I hunch it'll be missing "something", but my initial taste was pretty good.

Wow BierMuncher, that looks great. I'm definitely brewing that. Since I'm doing 5 gallon batches, I cut all the ingredients in half. To convert to PM, I subbed out 4 lbs of the 2 row for 3 lbs of...

Ok, I'm game for learning partial mash brewing. Any tried-and-true PM recipes? I've only got a 7 gallon pot for my boil, will that be enough for a PM brew?

Yep, I love the recipe as well. It is great as-is, but I really want to try another batch with a dry hop, just for fun. I experimented with my second batch, adding 1/4lb of munich, and didn't like...

Interesting recipes with amarillo or cascade (and rye?)

Hey all. I hate to be posting here asking for recipes, but I've searched the recipe database, and I haven't found anything that really sounds new and interesting.

I've got 1/2 pound each of...

Here's an extract recipe I found a while back. I haven't even had the Obsidian Stout yet, much less brewed this recipe. Here it is any way ;)

I've never used whole hops for dry hopping. The one time I dry hopped, I added the pellet hops directly to the primary. After a week, they had settled out. I had no problem racking to a bucket for...

I'm told summit hops have a very grapefruit-like taste. I haven't had the opportunity to try them yet. Amarillo and Cascade are definitely both very citrus-like, but I'd put them closer to orange...

I made this recipe about 2 months ago. I added too much water to the boil, so I had a low OG 1.055. I bottled after 3 weeks in primary, FG 1.013. The result is fantastic, though it is a bit bitter...

I just tried one of my Mirror Pond clones. It has only been in the bottles for two weeks, it still needs a bit more aging.

US-05 has always been very fast for me. Usually no more than about 4 days until the krausen starts settling out. I split a batch of APA between US-05 and S-04. The US-05 was about a day faster,...

I've been making bread with them. I'm still doing extract batches, so I don't have much grain. Also, so far lighter grains (from Pale Ale) have done better than grain from making Stout. I really like...

If you're using regular bread yeast, it should probably be ok. Mix it with some sugar water 30 minutes before you add it to the flour to make the dough. Just to wake it up.

When I made my first two batches of apfelwein, I split a pound of dextrose (by eye) between the two. I figured 2 lbs per 5 gallon, that's 2/5 lb per gallon, so 40% of a pound. 1/2 lb would be 50%,...
