    Too much boil off?

    In advance, sorry if this has already been answered, I can't seem to find exactly what I was looking for. I had just complete a SMaSH with Pilsner Malt and Soveirgn Hops and my post boil amount was MUCH lower than calculated. I have done plenty of all grain batches and I typically hit my...

    What can I make in a rush?

    I was going to make a Black IPA for a friends birthday, but life interrupted by brewing schedule (damn you real world!). I don't have enough time to make it as I want it in the keg on Mothers Day or the Monday after (May 13-14) to serve May 19. I would be making something this week, but I'm...

    Doughing in question

    First, I apologize if this has been covered already but couldn't find a thread about it. I always read about people adding grains to their water when doughing in. I have done multiple AG batches and always put my grains in first and the add my water. Is there any issues or negative effects...

    Critique my recipe - Agave Double Brown

    Hello all, I made this recipe for a home brew club competition. I made it on my own based off of some combinations of browns and honey brown recipies I found. I didn't plan on it being a high gravity beer, but I was doing my own crazy math. (Should have noticed when the grains starting going...

    split batch; same yeast; one clear

    Sorry if this had been posted before, but I couldn't find a thread searching for it. I made Revvys take on the Kentucky Common. I made up 10 gallons and pitched the same yeast (so5) in both. Brewed on Friday ad today; one with 4.5 gallons is really cleared out ad the other with 5.5 galllons...

    What I'm making tonight.

    I'm doing a double session to make ground on an Almond Joy Sweet Stout that didn't turn up well. I'm boiling my Gulden Draak Clone now, and will soon start mashing for an IPA, based on some of the recipies in the Zymurgy articles about grain to glass in a week (trying for a Christmas Party)...

    Paticulates in my bottle but not in my beer?

    I had made a clone of the winning ESB recipe from Zymurgy a few months ago. After some initial worry about clarity, it cleared up fine. After pulling a few bottles to bring to friends I saw that the bottle all seemed to have some yeast particles or something attached to the side of all 4...

    Munich malt replacement?

    So I'm looking over recipies for Baltic Porter and I have almost everything on hand. I need 7.5 lbs of munich malt ad was wondering if I can replace that with Marris Otter. Will also have lots of pis malt; crystal; roasted and caramunich. Will this work? I have 40 lbs of MO just chilling.

    All grain issue or yeast?

    I am new to the AG forefront, previously I have always been a PM guy until my last 3 batches. On my first bacth, except for all of my equipment failing the beer fcame out great. On my second beer I believe I oversparged and had a very low OG, but I turned my red into a scottish 60 (bonus!)...
