    A Quick Question about PB2

    So, would that be a direct translation to avg. ppg? If I were to pitch in 3lbs of it and calculated it for a 6gal batch 0.15 x (3/6) = 0.075 points would that be correct? Or would that not matter as it is in the boil and not calculated as a whole to the PPG of the mash?

    A Quick Question about PB2

    Hello everyone! I am currently trying to create a new recipe for a peanut butter chocolate stout (very daring and original, yes) but I have known about the use of PB2 near end boil or even fermentation. I was looking at throwing my portion in at the end of the boil, but I have a question about...

    Need Advice Calculating Efficiencies for My System

    Yes, that was a mistake. I meant to type cm but had mm on the mind. 0.4mm would be accurate. As far as salts go, I do not use any. I live in an extremely rural area and use water bypassed from my water softener and through an RV filter. I have not taken a water sample, but I do have the water...

    Need Advice Calculating Efficiencies for My System

    That sounds like something fun to try out next time. I have an irish red to brew coming up so I'll give it a shot this weekend. -Grains are crushed by me in a standard 2-roller at 0.04mm. Looked about the same as it always does, no full husks or un-cracked grain. -Gravity is read between both...

    Need Advice Calculating Efficiencies for My System

    Hello everyone. I've been going back and recreating some of my first recipes and I'm starting to get upset with my inconsistencies. Most of my concern is focused on the efficiency of my system; not knowing the limits or full capabilities of my system are probably affecting my results. I'm...

    Caffeine Content from Cacao Nibs?

    Thanks for the help, gentlemen! I'll be more the wiser going forward and not have to worry about a late night beer keeping me, or my guests awake!

    Caffeine Content from Cacao Nibs?

    Hello everyone, I have a question about my cacao nibs. A week ago I dry-nibbed about 3.5 gallons of a Porter with 8oz. of nibs, but I took them out after 4 days of soaking. I had some people over to try it, but got asked how much caffeine would be in the beer by the influence of cacao nibs. I...

    Favorite Style to Drink on the Course?

    Wondering if there are any golf enthusiasts that browse and brew. What are your favorite styles or specific beers to drink while your out on 18 and prepping for hole 19?

    Dry Nibbing My Keg

    Okay, so would you say having 8oz. I should take it out in maybe 4 or 5 days? I really need to order another beer line that is separate from my keg chest so I can do closed transfers lol

    Dry Nibbing My Keg

    I'm not really sure if I added too much, but I don't think that will be much of a problem. However, I am wondering if I should ever take them out of the keg at a certain time, or can I just leave them in there until the keg is all drank?

    Dry Nibbing My Keg

    Hello everyone! Today I kegged my coconut porter, but I felt like it would be cool to add 8oz. of cocao nibs in a hop sock into the keg. Has anyone previously done this and if so what was your experience? I'm not really sure what I'm doing with them at this point but I thought I'd wing it and...

    Any Yeast Recommendations?

    Hey guys, there is a sale going on at a local homebrew supply near me that is taking requests for Omega, White Labs, Wyeast, and Imperial strains. I'm not really sure what to get and was wondering if anyone had some good recommendations. I'm pretty open to trying new styles, so I wouldn't reject...

    New England IPA (w/Cloudwater)

    I'm also looking at creating a new NE IPA recipe and just was curious what type of oats/wheats/malts are desirable? I'm trying to familiarize myself with the grist ratios.

    Undercarbonated or More Patience?

    Thanks, youve been a huge help! Glad I asked before I waited any longer. I'll go ahead and take care of this before I go to bed tonight.
