    all challenger hopped english ipa

    I always find myself searching for the detailed descriptions of people using single hops in beer, so I thought I'd share my own. 10.5# thomas fawcett maris otter 1# thomas fawcett pale crystal [email protected] 2oz [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] 2oz dry hop...

    english brown?

    A few weeks back, I put together a recipe, not really knowing the exact style I was working with. I had an idea of how it was going to come out, but after doing some reading, sounds like I may have a made a higher gravity version of a english brown. Recipe as follows: 10# thomas fawcett maris...

    english IPA/IIPA recipe critique/suggestions

    So I've been thinking about making a big english IPA. I've had some American made versions of english IPA's, and I like the idea, but of course, want to try and make it my own. I'm contemplating using fuggles for everything but the 60 minute addition. I've used challenger in an ESB that has...

    American amber (amarillo/willamette)

    In the the middle of my boil for an American amber styled somewhat after bell's amber. So good so far. 8# 2-row 1# Munich 12 oz 40L 10 oz 80L .5 oz amarillo , .5oz willamette at 60, 30, 15, and flameout. The bells recipe calls for cascade and fuggles , but I'm a little burnt out on cascade...

    Michigan Malt co 2-row

    Anyone here using this? I've been using it for the last few months (on my third bag), but I've also been using munton's maris otter for some recipes. I've never achieved more than 76% efficiency with the 2-row, and typically it's a little lower, but regularly, and with no effort, achieve 80% and...

    Low efficiency on an IPA

    Brief background, all-grain, 5 gallon batches, fly sparge. Typically achieve around 75% (anywhere from 72-84). The last two batches of a specific IPA recipe I brewed, I've had issues with poor efficiency. I think I know what my problem what today, so maybe you'll all confirm it. 8.75# two-row...

    Chocolate rye porter help

    Brewed up a chocolate rye beer, that I think leans toward robust porter mostly, and it's just not what I'm aiming for. I think the hops are the main problem in my recipe, but maybe you guys can give me some better advice. Recipe as follows: 7# 2-row 3.5# rye 1#3oz 120L 10oz carabrown 10oz...

    iipa recipe critique

    Just realized I haven't made a legitimate imperial IPA. I put together a recipe on hopville, but knowing how my efficiencies run, I wanted to ask some questions about yeast choice, pitch rate, and the recipe itself. 14# 2-row .5# 40L .5# wheat .25# victory .25# munich 2oz challenger...

    chocolate orange ale recipe suggestions

    Hey all, first post, though I've been lurking for the past couple of months. I'm a new brewer, I started new year's day, and have been faithfully brewing a 5 gallon all-grain batch every week. I came up with this idea for a chocolate orange beer. My aim was to keep it drinkable with just a...
