This web forum rocks. I just did my first AG batch on Friday, and had some questions. I got all my answers in this thread.

Thanks to all!

This IS a great thread !! I am a BIAB brewer, so some of it is not 100% applicable to my system, but it is all nicely documented and if I ever decide to mash differently, I will start here. Can I ask about 3/4 cup of priming sugar? My last 2 batches of brown ale were disappointing .. not from taste so much as carb and head. I used a calculator which gave me the sugar amount for the style and desired volume of CO2, but it was less than I like in a beer. How do you figure 3/4 cup? Is it from a calculator?

Just set my brother up with a mash tun so he may begin all grain brewing. I made a great nut brown ale very similar to this recipe and this would be a great one for him to try out.

I wish that this home brewing myth would die. Oxidation is only a major problem after been has been filtered. The chance of oxidizing a beer that still contains yeast cells is slim to none. The amount of oxygen that is picked up during racking to a secondary fermentation vessel is very very small, and any oxygen that is picked up will be rapidly scrubbed from the beer by the yeast cells that are still in suspension. Another thing that home brewers overlook is that green beer contains dissolved CO2. Anyone who has ever racked beer to a secondary fermentation vessel has experienced what appears to be a restart of fermentation. What one is seeing is dissolved CO2 coming out solution. That off-gasing is purging oxygen from the fermentation vessel.
