I have a habit of adding a degree to mash temps when I find a recipe as I typically find myself over attenuating... Mashed mine at 153 and for the first time in a while I actually UNDER attenuated....

Excellent recipe! Thanks

Brewed 10 gallons of this. One keg stopped at 1.003, the other is slightly dryer at 1.002. I prefer the dryer of the two and feel it's better to style, but both are great!...

How often is it bubling btw? Should be bubbling pretty steady at this point still. Mine was still putting out bubbles after three weeks more than once a min.

Just an fyi; Beersmith does indeed add the sugar in to your pre-boil gravity, but you can change the sugar addition to "after boil" which will take it out of the pre-boil, but leave it added to the...

Good info. Correct me if I'm wrong but it sure sounds like one must try rather hard to over oxygenate a beer as long as A, the yeast are still active, and B, there's still fermentable sugars...

Brewing this for the second time this weekend. This is one of those beers that really strikes a cord with the BMC fans out there, I suspect it may be because of the corn addition.

This time I'm...

So I picked up the aeration wand/system from Williams Brewing this week... sure has some great reviews and I've looked at it in the past, so I bit the bullet.

With regards to the olive oil; I got...

My major concern is the thickness of the copper. See, when you run water under pressure through a tube...

Glad to hear that's been working well for you. How many batches can you manage with a store bought tank? Sounds like a worthwhile way of going about it.

Oldschool; That was my thought exactly... I don't see the harm in adding some o2 within the first 48hrs, especially not with a beer that'll take a good while to ferment. If I pull off a half gallon...
