    Premier malt extract

    I am also wondering if anyone in Memphis has found this. It sounds like it would make a great lawnmower beer.

    CornSugar vs. Drymalt

    cane sugar( table sugar) also works fine and is even cheaper than corn sugar. You just use a little less because it is more fermentable.

    Water bottles work for bottle conditioning

    I disagree quotes: "I don't think they are rated for pressure, so I wouldn't try it..." "Water bottles won't work for bottling. They just weren't made to hold pressure." "No, neither the quality of the thin plastic bottles nor the caps will be conducive to holding pressure." "The critical...

    Water bottles work for bottle conditioning

    I just used about 37 0.5 L bottles to bottle my scottish 80 schilling with 4 oz corn sugar. The bottom begins to bulge, but it still seems very sturdy. I am telling you all this because there is a misconception that these bottles are unable to hold pressure. I had asked numerous times and...

    Priming sugar in a scottish 80 /-

    I used the recipator with 1.1 CO2 volume and it is saying at 68 degrees F' I should use .44 oz of priming sugar. Am I missing something or should I really use that small amount? Also I have no scale or anything like that so can anyone think of a way to measure it out to that small of an amount...

    Plastic water bottles for conditioning

    Well my problem is, I don't really drink soda out of the bottle and I am certainly not down with drinking 2L of beer over 2 days unfortunately. I really am not worried about the shape of the bottle messing up. If the bottom goes outward that is fine because they will be in 6 pack holders. I...

    Plastic water bottles for conditioning

    I am wondering if anyone has actually had experience using plastic water bottles for conditioning. I know the general consensus is that they don't work, but according to my brother(also a homebrewer), he says he has used this type of bottle and had no bombs. Most people say that they won't...

    If you were making an English Pale Ale

    Ok so I have it in my water bath and I made it yesterday around 1:00 Pm. I saw that it was working at about 9 this morning and I realized it was fermenting at 68 F. I am trying to bring it down with ice, but is this a bad idea? Will the swing damage the brew much?

    what time for aroma hops?

    I accidentally dropped my aroma hops in on a brew at about 10 minutes left in the boil when it said 1 minute. How will this affect the aroma? Also is there a table for what each time does to the brew. Ex. 60 minutes bitter 10-1 aroma? etc.

    Blonde ale carbonation?

    I was looking on The Beer Recipator - Carbonation The beer recipator, and I couldn't find blonde ale. I am wondering how much corn sugar I should use to carbonate a kit I got. They gave me 4oz and I would like to try and keep it to style. So my question is how much would you need for...

    Chlorine in water?

    "After filtration, one part of fluoride, chlorine, and phosphate per million parts of water is added into the water. MLGW is required to add fluoride and chlorine in order to prevent tooth decay and kill any bacteria that might exist in the water." Just read this about Memphis water, and I am...

    I will definitely try that, this may just be me, but it seems like there is more flavor when it is warmer anyway.

    My brew lost its head!

    I have had about 10 of my red ales so far and it is close to 5 weeks conditioned. One of the first ones I drank I put in the fridge for only a couple hours, and it had a great 2 finger head or maybe a bit larger, but I heard advice that you should leave them in the fridge for atleast a few...

    I am poor.

    I don't think this is prison hooch. Most people are talking about using quality ingredients. I think hooch constitutes terrible ingredients. I think this thread is good, because it gives people new ideas to keep the equipment etc. If you are in search of buckets, I went to a doughnut shop...
