    Oatmeal Stout Yooper's Oatmeal Stout

    Three weeks? Why is everyone rushing this beer? It really hits its stride at 3 MONTHS. Seriously. Set aside a few, and try them at 3 months. You can thank me later. :)

    BIAB to Mash Tun

    I do both mash tun and BIAB. The other day I realized the recipe I was getting together might present a problem for a stuck sparge. Then I remembered I was doing BIAB that day. HA! (blushy)

    Carapills, Torified Barley, Flaked Wheat and Mashing for Head Retention

    APA? 4 oz of carapils will work just fine for a 5 gallon batch.

    Collecting Snow To Use as Water

    dragginrabbit, I think you've taken KGB09's words out of context. He says there is no need to boil snow to make it safe to drink. Then he offers up suggestions to easy people's minds about consuming snow if they have any trepidation about it. He says he thinks using snow for brewing is a great...

    Washing Yeast, Not sure I got it right

    Some yeasts seem to be easier to wash too. This one may be one of the tougher ones. Having such a dark beer makes it tough too. This time, you just may have to do it as eastoak suggested.

    Washing Yeast, Not sure I got it right

    You only let it sit for about 20 minutes. You cold crashed this. Swirl it around a bit after it has warmed up a little, let it sit for about 10 minutes, and you should see the different layers. Did you add any sterilized, de-oxygenated water to this?? It looks awfully dark.

    Where did the Hops Go?

    5 gm is less than 1/4 ounce. 28 gm is 1 ounce. Oh ok, I see how your hop schedule works. Not sure... hmm, that just seems like a labor intensive way to do things. Well, carry on. And good luck.

    Touche! I'm slowly relaxing and am more comfortable with brewing. (Tho I still worry plenty!)

    Collecting Snow To Use as Water

    People, people, people. It doesn't need to be purified or filtered or anything like that. It's going to boil in your kettle for an hour... Using snow is not a gimmick. It's fun. Why not use it? We have a guy in our homebrew club who uses snow in the winter and Lake Superior water in the...

    My beer is awful :(

    The hops had an unpleasant cheesy smell?? Well, that's not a good thing. Also, it's best to use an oxygen-based cleaner for your brewing equipment and drinking glasses. Other than the cheesy hops, it sounds like maybe something just didn't go quite right with your brew process. Did you...

    What BIAB Efficiency Do You Get?

    I use my grain mill at the same setting for BIAB as when I use the mash tun. I mash at whatever temp recipe calls for in both instances. After mash time is done, I have 2nd kettle with sparge water. I let bag sit in there for 10 minutes. After that, I let it drain, combine the two, and boil. I...
