    Gose-How Much Salt?

    So I put together my first Gose recipe and can't figure out how much salt. In my readings I have found amounts varying from as little as 1/2 tsp for a 5 gallon batch up to 12 grams per gallon. Mosher has a recipe in Radical brewing that calls for the least amount and Stan recommends the 12...

    November/December Zymurgy

    Thought I would plug the new Zymurgy, especially for new brewers. There are some great articles in this issue regarding Typical off flavors, proper use and pitching of yeast and how to properly taste and evaluate beer. If you are not a member of the AHA you can order a copy...

    Holiday Ale Input

    Looking at preparing my holiday season ale. This will be my second iteration of this recipe revised after last year's somewhat successful batch.

    A little recipe input please

    Here is my recipe for an American Wheat I'm working on and would appreciate some input and I'm not shooting for style. I am looking for a nice Red color though, hence the name: Panama Red Wheat and the inclusion of Melanoiden Malt. My concern is the color I'm seeing in BeerSmith is not really...

    Fermcap-S and Evaporation

    For my last 3 batches I have been using Fermcap to both control boil over and eliminate the need for a blow-off. My set up is using a 10 G boil kettle with ball valve to drain. It is a low, wide kettle, not a tall narrow. My pre-boil volume is 8.97G and my batch size into fermenter has...

    How to save this yeast?

    So I just bottled up my German Hefeweizen that I used WY3068 for. I have a nice yeast cake sitting on the bottom of the bucket and would like to be able to save it for a future batch. After bottling, since we stirred up a bit of the yeast I sealed the primary back up after racking and placed it...
