    First Barley Wine attempt - yeast question

    Hi, I've brewed a fair amount of extract sled but am thinking of trying my first barley whine. I was thinking about the recipe in Palmers book. For yeast, it recommends using the dregs from a previous batch, preferably from a secondary. I actually have batches now in primary and secondary. The...

    advice on using Amarillo hops

    Cheers everyone, I've made maybe 7 batches so I thought I would move out of the beginners forum. A more experienced coworker told me great things about Amarillo and I want to give it a try. I recently made a batch of the Lady Liberty Ale in Palmers book, one that uses a fair amount of...

    Help! Rubber stopper fell into the carboy

    In case anyone is still subscribed, I bottled that ale and got the plug out, no problem. I actually had a hops bag in there with some Cascade, and the cork actually rolled up on the bag and came out with some tugging. Thanks again!!

    Thanks to everyone for responding! I'm relieved that I didn't mess up my batch of ale.

    Best brands & sources of extract?

    Hi folks, I just wanted to ask if you think there are any certain brands of LME that you think work better than others. I've only used what's come in beer kits (Midwest and Briess, I think) and Muntons. I think they worked fine but I haven't exactly brewed enough batches to know. Also, if...

    Hefeweizen - Additional Grains

    Do you think the steeped grains are a good addition? I want to do a wheat beer this weekend using LME, though my recipe didn't call for any grains. I could see that a lighter version would be great for summer but I was thinking I might like a bit more body in this autumn batch.
