    Stout Mouthfeel

    You can see some of the details at https://contributingfactorbrewing.com/?page_id=99. This was a More Beer kit of their Bearded Stout that I screwed up but still came out as the best batch of beer I’ve brewed. The in negative I’ve heard, the mouthfeel is thin. Maybe if I followed the directions...

    First all grain - thoughts

    Last Sunday, I spent the better part of 5.5 hours involved in my first all grain brew day. Originally, I picked up a Old Bearded Stout (extract) recipe kit from More Beer, expecting it to be my last extract kit before moving to all grain. Ended up putting together a lauter tun and that extract...

    While I should have paid closer attention and bought the extract kit from Bell's I failed and went with the local More Beer shop, I Heart IPA. It wasn't until I was brewing that I realized Bell's sold their own kit and took notice the ingredients were quite different. Brew day went fine, but I...

    When to cryo hop?

    First brew session was successful, a nice American pale ale, about 5% ABV, light and easy drinking. Just purchased the ingredients for my next batch, an IPA with 0.5 oz Magnum for bittering and 2 oz. of Mosaic for flavoring, aroma and dry hopping. A friend suggested adding 1 oz. Mosaic cryo...

    First Sip - AIH Pale Ale

    It's been nearly 20 years since I first brewed, but I returned to the hobby and looking forward to more enjoyment. This is the result of my first batch brewed from a the AIH Pale Ale kit that came with my equipment. The kit was Cara-Plis and Crystal 10 with a 7 lb. male extract and with Chinook...

    First Pale Ale - Low OG

    Getting back into home brewing after a long absence (late 90's) and just bottled by first batch this past Friday (May 11). I brewed a simple AIH Pale Ale using specialty grains, LME and Chinook/Willamette hops. The measured OG was supposed to be 1.052, but came in lower, 1.048. I remeasured a...
