I have SS kegs for kettles and a 10 gal cooler for mashtun. Copper diptube tubes and a copper manifold. Also a brass ball valve on my pump and a brass fitting in my boil kettle.

The Tripel from the Brooklyn Brew Kit series is what started my homebrewing obsession. It was trash but I didnt know what I was doing. I know order my own modified recipes along with kits from Austin Homebrew Supply. The American IPA, Summer Saison, and American Amber Ale have been huge...
It was my second all grain batch and yes my efficiency was pretty poor. I was batch sparging, only did one runoff (added too much water) and didnt let it sit long enough. Also didnt boil off as much as I thought and ended up with about 6 gallons into the fermenter. Took a reading and tasted it...
So you think this is an alt?
I dont really know the style of alt but the wiki says its similar to american amber. I guess I should just stick with "ALE." :)
Is maibock a confusing style or is it just me?

12 lbs pale 2 row
4 lbs munich
2 lbs carastan
perle 1 oz at 60 min
perle .5 oz at 30
sterling .5 oz at 15
sterling .5 oz at 5
WLP051 cali v ale yeast
Undershot the gravity just a bit so I ended up at 1.062 which should be about 6 or 6.2%
Ok so I...
