    Rogue Irish Lager Inspired Ale

    Cold crash and force carb this week. Hopefully, last stage goes OK and I end up with drinkable beer.

    Rogue Irish Lager Inspired Ale

    Well gravity is down to 1.011 and no terrible sour tastes so that's good. Unfortunately, my temp control on the conical took a dumper so the temps have varied between 58 and 72 (the whole range of the yeast) and I've got some serious esters. Not bad, but not what I was going for.... kinda like a...

    I was bored...so I built a brewery!

    Problem with silicone hoses is they will split under pressure, so no valve on the output! Vinyl is a little better under pressure. It's really the only pro, and who would need to put a transfer those under pressure?

    Missed my numbers, how will this affect the final beer?

    At 1.042 OG and 75% AA you'll end up at 1.0105 and that should be somewhere around 4.5% ABV maybe 4.8% depending on the equation you use

    Corn sugar in recipe

    Caramelization does occur at the tun boundary. But it's subtle. A 90 min boil will have a diff SRM to a 60 because of this caramelization. Probably not a tastable difference though.

    My beer smells like a fart?

    Some yeasts has a pronounced sulpher smell that goes away after several weeks of conditioning

    Rogue Irish Lager Inspired Ale

    Brewed this on Sunday. Almost everything went awesome, hit 151 degF for 60. pre-boil OG was 1.050 post boil was 1.054 so I got a little better than 75%. Counter-flow chiller got everything to 66deg as it hit the conical. Then, I notice a small seeping leak from the bulkhead fitting for my...

    Free The Nitro!

    For those who are saying "This isn't a nitro tap" I don't think anyone has any confusion about that. What this is, is the poor man's beer engine. Beer is non-compressable, but air is; so, when you're trying to force the beer out of the syringe you compress the air (Mostly nitrogen) into the...

    Rogue Irish Lager Inspired Ale

    I posted this over in the All-Grain Forum, but that's probably the wrong spot... So I've become obsessed with Rogue's Irish Style Lager. It's a crisp lager with slight fruity notes (combo of hop citrus and yeast pear/apple), with a moderately hop forward character. Not sweet, not bitter but a...

    steep to convert

    Kind of like a BIAB mash step which can get ~80% efficiency so I'd expect you to get ~1.1# of extract from those 2lbs of grain if done correctly.
