    Schmidling Malt Mill

    Brewmoor Thats awesome! Would you mind hooking me up with how you motorized it? I saw the tutorial on his website and plan to try that. Do you do it that way?

    Top hops

    Hey everyone, If you had to list your top 10-15 most commonly used hops what would they be? I am putting together an inventory list to open a homebrew shop and would like to try having 10-15 hops for the first round of inventory and then add more after that. Thanks guys and gals I appreciate it...

    Fermentation Temperature for a Nut Brown

    I personally ferment my browns at about 60. Wort temp at 60 not ambient room temp so you are a couple of degrees below me. I always prefer to ferment anything besides a hefe a little on the cool side. You might try moving the fermenter to a little higher part of your basement or maybe get it off...

    top 10 or (5) most used yeast

    Thanks guys. I am going to try to swing at least 10 liquids from both wyeast and also white labs and then the go to danstars and safeale/lagers. I will add more as I go each month but holy cow it takes a lot of cash to get a store up and running!!!

    top 10 or (5) most used yeast

    Ok so if you were going to stock a homebrew shop and you were only going to carry 10 strains for your initial month, what would they be? Can you narrow it to 10 or do you need 15?

    Which Mill for everyday use?

    That Schmidling Malt Mill looks like a beast!!! For about $215 you can get the Model A adjustable and put the gear drive on it. Looks fairly straight forward motorizing it and it has a lifetime warranty. That one goes to the toip of the list right now. I like that Barley micro but $925 seems a...

    When to plant around Kansas City

    Hey everyone, I am taking the plunge this year and ordered 3 rhizomes from northwesthops. I got a centennial, a cascade and a perle. When do you recommend planting? I was thinking about right around the first of april as most of the frosts should be done by then. Too early or late? Thank you!

    Citrus from yeast??

    I just researched sour mash and acid malt. Thats pretty interesting. Im not 100% sure Ive had any sour beer before but I may try to add 5% acid malt and give that a whirl. Thanks for those ideas.

    Citrus from yeast??

    No just flaked wheat and torrified wheat. Doesnt torrified wheat fall into the category of wheat malt? I know the brewery uses unmalted wheat but I have never used it. I did a little looking at all the yeasts characteristics that wyeast offers. Some of the belgians and also some of the other...

    Citrus from yeast??

    Im not sure Yooper if I would say sour although a slight lemony like pucker and a hint of spice as the finish. Not overwhelming just there in the very end and very subtle. So maybe we are talking about the same thing. But I sure dont taste it in mine. My recipe was two row, torrified wheat, I...
