    Ideas For A Stout

    Drop the black for debiterized black it's not as astringent, add some flaked oats or try Golden naked oats. Not sure about pacman on a stout but it will make beer. I'm a little hesitant about the cherries in the boil, but if you have done this before and you like it go with it.

    Citra/Apollo IPA recipe review (please)

    Spend the money on enough liquid yeast since you are so close to brew day. S-04 is ok on a pale bit is essentially the same as Wyeast 1098 British ale and I do not find it makes a good pale. If you want something English try WYeast 1469 West Yorkshire or 1968 londen ESB. I have been really...

    Kolsch recipe feedback

    I like to add a little Munich or Vienna to my Kolsch, I have also used Belgian Pils and with a touch of Avengard Carahell just to get the color correct. Concerning yeast I have used Wyeast 2565 and had great success. I am looking forward to trying out Imperial Organic G03 Dieter on my next Kolsch

    Golden Naked Oats in Belgian Wit

    I am working on a Belgian Wit recipe, and I know traditionally a small amount of flaked oats are used. Well I was wondering has anyone used Simpsons Golden Naked Oats in one. I feel as though the effect would be the same because it is there to add to the smoothness in the mouth feel. Thoughts?

    March pump from Speidel to Corny keg

    So I am currently using a 120L Speidel fermenter for my batches. Well transferring in to kegs is not my favorite thing, but I started doing a CO2 push to help the process out. The reason for this is because I am sealing my kegs before hand and do not have oxygen touch the beer. I fill through my...

    ABV issue

    I had been doing 90 minute for the Pilsner malt because in Brewing Classic Styles Jamil says that you may need to do the 90 rest and 90 boil. Thus why I did that, I will look at shorting the rest time in the future with Pilsner malt.

    ABV issue

    I did the 90 at 149 because of the Pilsner malt and the possibility of DMS. That may be my issue on these last 2 recipes
