I racked onto the AE this weekend... After primary fermentation the gravity reading was 1.008... Going to add an ounce of saaz hops next weekend to dry hop for 1 week and then bottle. When racking, the beer actually smelled like miller lite surprisingly. When I tried it out of the hydrometer tube the initial taste was very similar to that of miller lite but finished with a very harsh nasty corn flavor... Go to work AE!!!

Yeah with time like a week or two that disappears completely. That's the AE you are tasting. It's a very dry parched after taste. I always thought ahh, then got whiplash from the involuntary shudder. The short wait is worth the enhanced quality and higher alcohol.

Minw was not clear at all... is this going to matter?

Just cracked open my second one and the first that was ready and it is pretty good. Really clear and crisp. I will definitely make this a couple times a year.

I'm pretty excited to brew this. I just ordered the ingredients so I can give my dad a home brew for his birthday that he might actually like. I'll also have to share some with my roller hockey team this summer as well.

Hi, I think I have gone through this whole thread and I have not seen a post that answers my questions clearly and definitively, sorry in advance if I missed it.

I am heading to the LBS in a few to pick up the ingredients and planning on brewing this this weekend. But my questions are this:

1) for BIAB do I just steep the flaked corn in with the grain for the full time or do it in steps?

And

2) when fermenting, does this recipe need to be laggered or can I just ferment it the same I have done all my ales in the past with a primary and secondary at ale temps? If it does need to be laggered could someone please walk me though that process?


Thank you!
