    German Pils Saphir Pils

    Mine has been lagering for two weeks at 35 degrees now and has still yet to clear... but just a little smell through the airlock smells great. Hope it will drop clear soon.

    German Pils Saphir Pils

    I knew that... about lager yeast man i have had a rough couple days. I think I got a serious case of the dumb. I am bottling.. Also. I think it was just left over from my rather larger krausen/blow off material.

    German Pils Saphir Pils

    I racked mine to secondary this weekend. It was still rather cloudy, I am hoping that will it will clear. I am going to drop the temp by 5 degrees per day to get to 35 degrees and lager for 1 month. Also, is wlp800 a top fermenting yeast? I really couldn't see the top of the brew because of...

    First Partial Mash... possibly

    I used distilled just because i did extract brews. Does extract have to be added with 15 minutes in the boil to sanitize or would adding at flame out also accomplish sanitizing the extract. Also, I have heard hop utilization can be affected by wort gravity and I have also heard that it doesn't...

    First Partial Mash... possibly

    First it is between these two AHS brews Lawnmower or Strawberry Lager. So I have a few questions. Typically I used distilled water for brewing (extracts) should I use a different type of water or add a different type of yeast fuel/nutrient. I typically use Brewvint yeast fuel. Also, should I...

    Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer Double Chocolate Oatmeal Snout

    Really just looked at this big grain bill. I don't think my 5 gallon pot could handle it at 1.5 qt/lb it comes out to about 4.5 gallons or 1.25 qt/lb it comes out to about 3.77 gallons..

    German Pils Saphir Pils

    Hey Hooter saw this response and had to ask. I have complete control over my temps thanks to my new ranco and chest freezer. I have been holding between 50-52 degrees for fermentation. I was planing on doing a diacetyl rest starting this Friday for about 48 hours at 62 degrees (should this be...

    Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer Double Chocolate Oatmeal Snout

    This may have been mentioned earlier but I couldn't find it. What cocoa powder did you use? I am having problems finding the fat free variety.

    Reaching lager temps

    How long do you keep it at secondary temps? Or do you start dropping it as soon as you go to secondary?

    Reaching lager temps

    Have another lager question but it is completely different from the last one I posted so I thought it was worthy of another thread. How do you reach you lager temps? Lets say your primary fermentation was at 50-52 F, you did your diacetyl rest at 62 F for 48 hrs and racked to a secondary. How...

    Lager in a Better Bottle

    I was just reading the Fermenting Lagers section in our homebrewing wiki and it said buckets were not suitable for lagering due to air exchange. It said Kegs and carboys were, I assume this means better bottles but am not 100% seeing has how I am just in the primary now I have time to get a...

    NOT boiling DME for full 60min

    I used all DME on my last batch adding 2 lbs at the beginning of the boil and 3 lbs at flame out. My others have all had LME, looking foward to having this all DME batch of saphir pils.

    NOT boiling DME for full 60min

    Thanks... I wish I could get away from extract but apartment living is kinda hard for all grain although I am tempted to dry DeathBrewer's stove top method. I think next time I will add all my extract at the end. I suppose i will need to adjust my hop addition to not over bitter them. Isn't...

    NOT boiling DME for full 60min

    Another question. When doing an extract batch do you prefer adding 1 lb of the extract at the beginning of the boil and the remainder at flame out. Or simply boil what came from the steeping grains and add all the extract at flame out? I thought some extract had to be added for proper...
