    Base Imperial Stout for customizing

    Greetings! Curious your recommendations for a delicious standalone imperial stout - which would also be accommodating to customization, like oak chips/whiskey or maybe cherries or marshmallows etc. Thoughts? Thank you,

    Berliner Weiss -Biab - left the grain in .....

    Hi, First shot at any type of sour. I totally misinterpreted the instructions and had an "AHA" moment at like 3am. Basically, I mashed, cooled, added the uncrushed grain and am incubating with the crushed grain I mashed. Should I have taken it out? will this have an impact? This grain was...

    Brett starter for 1.030 Targeted OG

    Hi, making a dry hopped funky pale ale. The target gravity is 1.030, i was planning on pitching brett for 3-4 days then finishing with US-05. Only looking for a little funk. Because of the low OG, can i pitch my vial directly in the the wort as it will work as a very large starter of sorts...

    Australian varieties

    Good feedback Bierhaus, thank you. :mug: These sound delicious. So, a 20min whirlpool at flameout should be safe? Or would you recommend dropping temp a little prior to whirlpool addition?

    Australian varieties

    Hi Just picked up a pound of Vic Secret and 1/2lb of topaz. I am planning on brewing up some juicy hop forward IPA's. The AA content is higher than i expected 12% ( I didn't bother checking before ordering not that it would have stopped me). So, Obviously I can dryhop with this. But should I...

    Inkbird FAIL

    Thanks all. Emo off. Optimistically cracked open a kent falls dry hopped blonde. exploded into a beer slurpy. Beer slurpy's are not as enjoyable as they sound. Balls. I'll check the probe though maybe that is it. Just crazy the sensor is so off. When I grip it in my hand I see the temp raise...

    Thoughts On this Stout recipe to be aged on whiskey barrel chips

    I like that idea. A Lot. Perhaps dial back the lactose?

    Random fresh hops

    So, 2 + years back I ordered 4 different rhizome's. My 3yo daughter at the time helped me plant them, to my mistake I was too distracted to notice we didn't carry the label over with the rhizome.:ban: So , I have a mixture of Cascade, Chinook, Nugget and Norther Brewer. I planted them WAY to...

    Another water thread - How do I tune water?

    Greetings, So I'm struggling understanding this water business. I've read numerous posts and the more recent highlighted variances. I am understanding the different values, flavors they add and what contributes to them. What I am missing is...how many grams of X = this many PPM of X...

    Does Conan smell?

    it's settled and looks like a solid sample, nothing funky , nice yeast layer settled on the bottom, hazy beer sitting on top. fermentation smelt....very deep, almost super malty. Should I pitch it?

    Does Conan smell?

    I harvested some Conan from a few alchemist cans. fermentation went as expected. However as I transferred it to a mason jar, i'm noticing a funky smell. Maybe mildewy? hard to describe. Does Conan have a particular odor?
