    Keg after only 8 days in primary?

    Heres what's going on: I've got a pumpkin ale that's been in the primary for 8 days now. Ended up mashing low (145ºF) because my thermometer was reading ~8º hotter than the actual temp. Not ideal for this particular beer, but not the end of the world. Also, I added a cup of maple syrup at...

    Summer Ale with WAY too much Lemon Zest Flavor...any Remedies?

    I brewed an American Hefe last week and added about 1 oz of lemon zest. I took my FG reading today (hit target, which was great...but) when I sampled my beer it was way too lemony. Its astringent; tastes like biting into a lemon peel almost. but for the over-zestiness this would be a delicious...

    Wyeast American Wheat 1010 fermentation temperature

    I want to brew something along the lines of blue moon/shock top. I really want the orange peel and coriander flavors to come through, so I don't want much clove/banana flavors from the yeast. Hence, I plan on using Wyeast American Wheat (1010). The rub: I've used this yeast before in an...

    Kölsch Fermentation Temperature

    I made an 800ML starter on for a smack pack of Wyeast Kölsch (2565), which I let sit on my stir-plate for 30 hours and then pitched into my brew last evening after beer had cooled to ~65. The beer is sitting in my Fermentation chamber right now, ambient temp ~49, and it's fermenting like crazy...

    Johnson Controls A19 Calibration

    I purchased a Johnson Controls a few months ago and use it in a Mini-Fridge to create a temperature controlled fermentation chamber. It works incredibly well at controlling temperature, and my beer quality has drastically improved. I've done about 10 beers using the controller in my...

    Stir Plate Cell Phone Charger/Power Adapter

    I'm looking to make a second stir plate and I need a cell phone charger or some power adapter with a 9-12V output. Unfortunately all of my chargers are ~5V, which won't cut it, so i'm going to have to buy one online. I found this website: http://www.cellphoneshop.net/celphontravc.html which has...

    Blueberry Hefeweizen

    I'm brewing a wheat beer this weekend and many of my [female] friends have expressed an interest trying a "blueberry-y/citrus-y" beer. I figured this wheat beer would be a good base to incorporate such a taste. For the citrus flavor i'm just going to add an ounce or so of sweet orange peel...

    Does anyone know what malt(s) is/are used in the production of... 1) Munton's Extra Light DME; and 2) Munton's Light DME? I remember reading somewhere (probably one of these forums) that Munton's Extra light consisted of English 2-row and CaraPils, but I'm not sure as to the validity of...
