    Kettle Sour With probiotic and cherries

    Expected ABV is around 4 % - I will be adding about 0.7 lbs of DME likely and should get some residual sugars from the cherry . Also have a bit of dextrose if it’s going to be very light. Brewers friend indicated around 4% and they usually seem bang on from past experience

    Kettle Sour With probiotic and cherries

    Hey team I am currently brewing a test batch of 2.5 gallons kettle sour 1.1 lbs 2 row 1.1 lbs wheat 4 oz honey malt that I mashed at 150 for 60 minutes, then heated up to 200 F and then chilled to 99 F. I then pitched a bottle of Bio Kidz raspberry gluten/dairy free. Which is 12.5 billion...

    Beamish Irish Stout Clone Recipe ?

    I like my beers around 2-2.5 volumes generally , so I would aim closer to 2 . I bottle so this is relatively easy to experiment with a few bottles add extra priming sugar . But to each their own !

    Beamish Irish Stout Clone Recipe ?

    Yes it is still made (by Heineken) and not at the original brewery which was sadly closed. There is a very cool book about the History of the Brewery that is available and even gives break downs of some of their early brews.

    Beamish Irish Stout Clone Recipe ?

    I haven’t used that yeast but their website says from one of the longest producing stout producers in Ireland - so I imagine like the wyeast 1084 it’s probably the Guinness yeast . Cool that @bierhaus15 has the actual yeast !

    Looking for a stout recipe

    I made a stout recently that has definitely been the best beer I have brewed. I read the Chris McKenzie https://brewublog.com/stout/. blog and listened to the basic brewing podcast where they discuss it and what he felt made the biggest differences. Tried to read a few blogs on cloning an Irish...

    Post your infection

    Centennial blond that has been fermenting for 1 week, glass carboy, used starsan on everything religiously . US-05 yeast . Noticed a few white spots, is this an infection or yeast rafts?

    3 gallon BIAB in a 5 gallon kettle?

    I did my first BIAB with a 6 gallon kettle last week . The preboil volume was 4 gallons , definitely keep a spray bottle on hand and a big spoon or whisk to keep the foam at bay early on in the boil . After that brief moment I was fine for the rest of the brew

    10 days into brew

    Thanks for the assistance everyone ! Took a bottle out and chilled it and popped er open. The results : a totally mediocre beer. But really I look at this like a success - did I miss my final gravity and basically brew a 2.5 % session beer ? Yes yes I did . Can I taste the galaxy dry hops ? No...

    Refrigerator fermentation temp

    Yeah pair this with an inkbird controller and you have pretty tight temperature control--I'm a mega newb at beer brewing but this seems to me the most straightforward and inexpensive method.

    10 days into brew

    Okay update : day 26 have checked on the beer and dry hopped with a 1oz galaxy hops . Gravity seems to have possibly come down one point in the last couple weeks . Will bottle in 3 days and then condition for 2 weeks . Tastes a bit tart, a bit apple-y but not horrendous — I’m hoping time...

    It’s possible for sure , given the gravity change I figure i should give it time anyways .. I hope the flavour settles

    10 days into brew

    Checked the gravity, seems to be 1.018 now, no it still tastes like green apples. Have adjusted the temperature up a bit now to 71 degrees as the heater seems to be moving things along. The Nottingham is apparently good to 72 so I'm going to hold it here and hope to god this acetaldehyde flavour...

    Beer has been now up to 70 degrees since Saturday , the airlock is still bubbling — every 2-3 minutes , it’s been over 2 weeks !

    10 days into brew

    Update now 2 weeks in , SG remains at 1020. The fermentrap heater and temperature controller arrived and are currently bringing the beer up to 70F . Will let it do its things for a week . Also the green apple taste is potent so the beer is full of acetaldehyde, hopefully the warmer temps get...

    10 days into brew

    Thanks ! He’s a duck toller - I have ordered a fermenter wrap heater and an inkbird temperature controller. Working on acquiring a beer fridge I can keep fermentations in and control the temp. Will bring this current beer up to 18 Celsius for a few days and hopefully finish the fermentation off...
