Putting it in the primary!



Last step



We even found a name for our brewery. It'll be: La brasserie des 400 coups. It is in french. I don't know how to say what it means in english tough! I'll try something. 400 tricks brewery. I can't find the right word for "coups" (tricks) When you play someone a trick... Is that it?

Well...

And Our first beer will be named: La Yamaska au Miel... Honey Yamaska in english. Yamaska is a really polluted river in the city where my friend and I used to live. We tought it would be funny to name our first brew by the name of that brown river!!!

There you go!

Santé!

J-F!

Looks like you put the LME and hops in a pot before boiling anything. Not that that wont work, but if you use any steeping grains in the future wont be able to put the extract in before boiling and you can get lighter colored beer if you add the LME late.

It's actually a good idea to get some of the malt extract in with the grains to help convert any of the grains that are enzyme free. Depends on what you are going for, but you definitely want to convert a good amount of that extra starch into sugar.

Um, not to nitpick, but steeping grains is steeping grains, and mashing is mashing. You might pick up some extra sugar from steeping, but that's not the purpose. Steeping is for flavor and color. If you're looking to convert starches into sugars, then you mash. If you convert too much of those starches into sugars, you'll end up raising your OG, which can adversely affect your final product if you're not aware of it and don't adjust your hop bill accordingly.
