    Bottling a Lager

    I brewed an Oktoberfest back in May and have had it at 38 degrees since at least June 1. I am going to bottle this on Sunday and the last lager i brewed i added a half packet of US-05 to the bottling bucket but have read that isnt necessary. Do i need to add some yeast or should i be fine...

    Have You Made a Beer for 2013 Yet?

    I brewed a Barleywine (10.2%) on the day I put my dog down in early June and named it after him: Bailey's Barleywine. He sure made it strong!

    My brew-stand

    This is an awesome thread. Would you mind sharing the expected budget? I would love to do this but not sure what to plan for in terms of $$$. No worries if you don't want to share. Best of luck!

    NB's Advantageous Weizenbock

    I am going to brew the extract version of this recipe, which it doesn't look like they sell anymore. Please see the below for the AG recipe. There is a first wort hop addition to be added but my understanding was that is only for AG and I am confused when to add this with an extract kit? I...

    NB Smashing Pumpkin

    hmm, good point. If i were to be able to get my hands on some rice hulls, how much should I put in with the mash?

    NB Smashing Pumpkin

    I already said that isn't an option as there is no lhbs and I am not paying an extra $7 for rice hulls due to shipping.

    NB Smashing Pumpkin

    I typically do a 1.25 qt/lb mash, is adding the extra 0.25 really going to make that much of a difference?

    NB Smashing Pumpkin

    Nice sfrisby, I really like that experiment. Let me know what the results are. So now my question is with my mash. I do not ahve access to a LHBS, everything is online, so I can't easily get rice hulls (aka I will not have them for my brewday). Will i have a problem with a stuck sparge if i...

    NB Smashing Pumpkin

    Ah, good points, all of them. I may do the same and add the 1 tsp and then adjust when i go to bottle it as well. I don't want to keg this one because I am gonig to be giving a lot away.

    Squam Lakes Brewery with Pictures

    I have a couple questions, if you don't mind answering them, that I didn't see addressed in the thread yet. 1) You provided the total cost of brewing a beer with materials/electricity but did not include bottles in there. What would you say your profit is currently after all the costs (would...

    2.5 Gallon Barleywine

    I stuck with 1.25 qt/lb and then did one sparge to get to my preboil volume of 3.75 gallons. Hit my numbers dead on. Thanks.

    2.5 Gallon Barleywine

    I previously posted questions regarding my starter, but failed to ask about the amount of water in the mash. I usually do 1.25 qt/lb when doing a 5 gallon batch, but now am only doing a 2.5 gallon batch. Should I adjust the amount of water, or will I have to obtain 4 gallons an boil dow to...
