I live in Thailand, but will have a friend in New York to bring me some cans over. If you were to reccomend 10 ipa,iipa,ris, brett beers or sours that are easily obtainable in NY, what would they be?
Cheers very much in advance.
I have a big stout that came out bigger than planned: 12% and it is in half litre bottles.
If I were to brew a beer of about 3% and blend them 50/50 in the glass, how strong woth the resultant beer be?
Cheers in advance
I am thinking of doing a buckwheat saison using unmalted groats.
My question is, in the absence of buchwheat in my brewing software, what grain would be a good substitute with regards to available extract?
I would like to start swapping between Starsan and iodophore, but cannot get my hands on the latter where I live.
Can I substitute the regular iodine that is used to apply to wounds?
If so, what would be the ratio?
Cheers very much in advance.
So, ladies and gents, I brewed on Sunday and relused that due to over shooting my OG, under shooting my colour( forgot the chocolate wheat) and intentionally over bittered.
It was going to be a Vienna lager.
2/3 Vienna malt
1/3 pilsner malt
40 ibu( mostly Saaz at 60 and 20 with a...
So, adding spices to a beer is not exactly cutting edge, but I had an idea
I will be brewing a no-boil(raw ale) imperial oatmeal stout and had the idea of adding some cinnamon and clove to the mash.
It is a small batch, 6 litres, OG 1.080.
I will already be adding 25gr of Columbus pellets...
After listening to a recent MBAA podcast with brewers from St Arnold I was wondering how thick one could go with a mash without it being too dry.
The gist was, that the thicker the mash, the more water is held back to sparge with, thus a more efficient mash.
I have ordered some of this crystal malt and have never brewed with it before.
This from the vendor's site
400-EBC Red Crystal Malt (1 lb) - Thomas Fawcett & Sons
For all kinds of red, amber and dark top-fermented beers, especially Bitter, Porter, Stout and Russian Imperial Stout...
My capper locks up and is very hard to get off the bottles when I swap out the plates and use a 29mm bell.
It also leaves BIG dents in the cap.
It is a red Emily brand capper and I NEVER have problems when capping standard size bottles(26mm).
Any ideas on why this happens?
I am hoping to soon have some Kveik to brew with.
I would like very much to stay as close to tradition as possible, but cannot get juniper branches.
Berries however,I have.
So does anybody have an idea of what weight of berries I would need to use per litre to substitute for the branches...
I have a sachet of dried yeast from a Polish lab called Gozdawa; Belgian Gruity Spicy Ale Yeast (BFSAY).
This yeast has a wide temperature range:18-30c.
It has however,a rather low alcohol tolerance of 8.7%, according to the info provided.
They list it as good for Abbaye ales,Belgian ales and...
I am thinking of throwing in some unprocessed raw coconut flesh into a Gose I will be brewing soon.
I am leanig towards using it in the mash. An idea I heard on an episode of 4 Brewers,btewery forgotten.
I have seen all sorts of coconut Porters,Stouts and IPAs, but has any body out there done...
I am obsessing a lot about Gose of late,with a thought that will not leave me alone;
Does anybody use hefeweizen yeast in their Gose?
Or is it all either clean boring ale yeast, or Brett?
What do you all use?
I am thinking of brewing a small batch this weekend,6 litres.
I was goung to go with :
17% Spec B
3% pale choc
10% TF amber malt
15gr Hallertauer each at 60 & 20.
I have never used Special B and wondered if anybody with expetience could give their view.
I am going to be brewing a tripel in the next few weeks using yeast harvested from Chouffe bottles.
I can already see that this yeast is a monster,climbing out of a 1000ml flask on my stirplate with a started of 600ml.
Can anybody with experience give me pointers on how to plan my fermentation...
Sorry,no sexy hops.
I am not a hop snob,even though I do love the sexy exciting kinds.
I am thinking of Pride of Ringwood.
I have not used it in years and was wondering if you guys/girs have used it recently or had it in a saison.
How was it?
