Haven't been on here in a while but saw this question. I mashed at 150F for 75mins. I do BIAB in a big pot so this was a pretty simple single infusion. Did a sparge of sorts, letting the bag drain...

I bottled a dunkel with 3068 recently and it had a sour smell. Like the typical banana you get from a hefe mixed with a sour bite. Just had a bottle and can safely say that it tastes (and smells)...

So brew-in-a-bag results in more trub? I've never heard that. I've only done BIAB so I have no frame of reference... I always figured that the grain and strainer bag was acting as a filter just as...

I too needed a huge blowoff tube for 3068. I had been warned fortunately so I was all set. Bottled my batch last week after an extended primary (got busy and never had a chance to bottle). Sample...

Using carb tabs rules out a problem with the amount of priming sugar or with the priming solution not being properly mixed. If the bottles have spent 3+ weeks at room temp and aren't carbed, then...

I have mixed feelings. It turned out very drinkable. Very lively carbonation, a slight acidic twang, and a good grainy/wheaty character. But it did not get as sour as I would have liked. I...

Personally, I would go easy on the dry hopping with NS in a saison. The nelson sauvin hops are pretty pungent and it will probably take a bit of adjusting to balance the saison yeast with the hops...

I find I get better results with a little lower grain to water ratio - about 5 gallons per 10 lbs (or 2 qt per lb). Then I batch sparge and add the second runnings til I hit my target gravity (and...

Smoked Dunkelweizen

Haven't seen much posted on these types of recipes. I've heard of smoked hefeweizen, though never tasted one. But its winter and dark beers seem more appropriate, so I just brewed a smoked...

Nelson Sauvin Imperial Pilsner

This beer was inspired by Victory's Prima Pils and Mikeller's Nelson Sauvin Single Hop IPA. I love the way the hops shine through in Prima and was fascinated by the passion fruit flavor/smell of NS...

Well, after a nice long lagering, I'm finally bottling this imperial pils. OG was 1.078 and FG is 1.015 for a big 8.24% ABV. I used Pac Gem for bittering and NS for flavor and aroma. 63IBU in...

I think I want some esters, but want to focus on clove and minimize banana/bubblegum. Thinking maybe WY3068 and keeping the temp on the low-side.

I was picking up bottle caps and some priming...

Wow, thanks. I've never brewed a wit (done a few unspiced wheat beers though). I think I stole the amounts from a wit recipe on here but maybe it was a 10 gallon batch.

Dark Wit, a winter wheat beer. Help needed

I don't know if this fits a category per se (sort of dunkelweizen, sort of wit I suppose). I've got the urge to make an easy drinking winter beer, not too sweet, just enough alcohol to block out the...
