    Mash Temperature problem

    Thank you guys for the responses, looks like I just rushed the doughing in process and capped my mash tun way too soon. Makes me want to brew again so bad and do it right this time!

    Mash Temperature problem

    I did my first all grain batch yesterday. I definitely messed up the mash temperature. I had about an 11lb grain bill. I added about 3 gallons of 170 degree water to my rubbermaid water cooler mash tun, then stirred in my grain. The temp dropped to about 150, so I added some very hot water...

    Homemade blueberry extract

    I've done a previous batch in which i put 5lbs of frozen crushed blueberries in the secondary fermenter. I got almost no blueberry flavor from this method. I believe all of the sugars from the blueberries were fermented and turned to alcohol. I'd like to add the extract right before bottling to...

    Homemade blueberry extract

    I'm making my own blueberry extract for use in a blueberry ale. I thawed 1Lb of frozen blueberries, and crushed them. I put them in a tupperware container, with about a half a cup of sugar and enough vodka to cover the berries after it was all mashed together. How long do I need to let...

    My Blueberry Ale Needs Help!

    Ya, part of me is thinking that way, the other part is thinking i've already thrown about 75$ into this batch and would like it to be halfway decent haha. Frozen blueberries are no joke, neither is the blueberry puree, those together cost me more than extract, hops, and yeast combined.

    My Blueberry Ale Needs Help!

    I brewed a blueberry ale about a month ago, it sat in the primary for a week (as just a wheat ale), then i racked it onto 5lbs of frozen blueberries that i thawed and crushed, it sat there for 3 weeks. I bottled 2 gallons of it, and kegged 3 gallons of it a few days ago. I have the keg all set...

    Boil Volume and Hop Utilization

    Thanks for the quick reply codemunki The tool is iBrewMaster for the iPhone. It seems really legit, estimates OG and FG accurately bases on grain and extract inputs, so I assumed it calculates IBUs as well based on boil volume, boil time, and alpha acids based on specific hops, but maybe not.

    Boil Volume and Hop Utilization

    Hey all, So, I've been brewing for about 4 months now, and have made several fairly good beers. I've been using True Brew kits and adding extra ingredients to make them "my own." I downloaded a brewing tool and decided to make my own beer not using a kit (still using extract.) When I added...

    Summer style Red wheat ale

    I also understand that different types of oranges lend different effects, some bitter, some sweet. I'm looking for a good orange aroma, with a bit of sweetness added. Any suggestions on types of oranges? As well as how many oranges/lemons/coriander to add? Thanks a lot!

    Summer style Red wheat ale

    Hey everyone, I plan to make an american wheat ale, 5 Gal, and add orange zest, lemon zest, and coriander, to make it have a citrus aspect for summer. I also want to use some grains to give a reddish color. My plan is to brew it as normal, using the extract method, then add all of the...
