    Any one know a good oatmeal stout recipe?

    Does any one know a tried and true oatmeal stout recipe? This will be my first attempt at a stout. The plan is to have if for when the weather starts turning.

    Altitude and Specific Gravity

    With all of that being said. Grab some distilled water and calibrate your hydrometer. The most important thing though RDWHAHB

    So I have 5 gallons of apple juice, any good recipes?

    So I have 5 gallons of apple juice and an empty carboy. I want to make a cider, but last time I tried to make a cider (5 gallons of apple juice and 3 lbs DME and a dry ale yeast. I heated 1/2 gallon of the juice to like 180* and dissolved the DME in that) it turned out really sour when I bottled...

    Modified apfelwein tastes sour?

    I brewed it the very beginning of April. I was hoping age would make it better.

    Modified apfelwein tastes sour?

    So I made a modified version of some apfelwein: 5 gallons apple juice 3 lbs DME 1 packet of safale US-05 I heated half a gallon of the apple juice to about 180* to dissolve the DME I just bottled it today, and when I tasted the left overs it tasted sour. Is that an infection, or just...

    Dishwasher or oven to sanitize bottles?

    Should I use the oven or dishwasher to sanitize my bottles? If the oven, how long and how hot? Or should I just use star san? -Thanks

    My Pale Ale tastes kind of like soap.

    I left in primary for maybe a month I think, then I racked it to secondary. It was in secondary for probably another month due to a busy schedule. Racking didn't go that well so I may have racked up some trub too. But the amber ale I mentioned that had a bit of the same taste was only in primary...

    My Pale Ale tastes kind of like soap.

    The new Pale Ale I brewed tastes almost like soap, granted, the best soap I've ever tasted but still... I had an amber ale that tasted a bit like soap too, not as much, but they both had cascade hops, so its either the hops, or my technique. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Heres a...

    DME in Apfelwein?

    Has anyone used DME instead of corn sugar for apfelwein? I went to the LHBS today and decided to get DME and safale US-05 to go with the apple juice, what do you think? and how much DME do you think? would heating up some of the apple juice and dissolving the DME in that work? Thank you

    Dry Yeast Starter Question

    don't mess with a starter with dry yeast, I've never heard of any one doing it, just re hydrating. I have heard of people just pitching 2 packets though. p.s. I could be wrong, Im still new at this.

    Super Banana and clove flavor

    I did make a starter, and I don't think I under pitched. Because it was a small batch I made a starter with a whole packet of yeast and pitched about 1/4 of it. My understanding (this could be wrong) is that lower temps. would give me more clove and higher t. would give me more banana, but I...

    Super Banana and clove flavor

    So I brewed up a 3/4 gallon batch of a wheat beer that used chocolate malt :ban:. I used WLP 380 (I'm not entirely sure what temperature it was at because I didn't have a thermometer on the jug I was using) and I got a ridiculous amount of banana and clove :ban:. So I was wondering if there was...

    3/4 gallon experiments?

    I've never used it, so I couldn't tell you, but based on the experience with this beer, careful with the yeast.
