    How long for autolysis?

    I've had a batch sitting in primary at around 68 degrees for roughly three months. Am I screwed? Haven't tasted it yet. How long does it typically take for autolysis to set in?

    Beer tattoo!

    I'm looking for a possible homebrewing/general beer tattoo. This is a random idea and I haven't thought it through nor have I researched it. Just wondering what was out there.

    "Is my beer ruined?" thread #1,035,536 - Sour taste

    I figured the beginner's forum is the best place to ask about this. I can't solidly find a good resource for what happened, so that is why I am asking here. I don't consider myself a beginner anymore, not with 30+ batches under my belt. But I don't claim to be an expert either. Here it goes...

    Soggy Fridge

    I am planning a double batch later this week and decided, because the weather is going to be getting much warmer, that my immersion chiller/pond pump combination would be the better way to go to chill them. I am tired of overpaying for ice to do this, so I decided to freeze three 16 qt bins full...

    Optic/Sterling SMaSH

    Haven't seen this combination here yet. I rarely see Optic used as a base in recipes, and I've also never used it and have been curious about it. Also, the descriptions I've read about Sterling hops being like a slightly floral and citrusy Saaz sound great to me. Here is the recipe. Style...

    Extra Special Bitter

    This one is for July 27. Never used Melanoiden Malt before so I am unsure of what this will do. I have read that I may be aiming to use too much, but I will let you all be the judge of that and help me tweak my recipe. Style: Extra Special Bitter Estimated Measurements: SRM: 10.9 SRM IBU: 39.1...

    Belgian Tripel

    This one is going to be brewed on July 13. I figure this time I will seek the help of professionals BEFORE ordering my ingredients. This is what I determined to be best for me. I am going to share my recipes and, with help, develop them to a point that I can set the recipe in stone. Basically, I...

    AHS Magic Hop Dust IPA

    I've read some mixed feelings about using AHS's Magic Hop Dust I'm making an IPA with it. Well I think I am anyway. That's what I'm going for. 4 oz continuously hopped followed by another 4 oz dry hopped in the secondary. The...

    Dry Rice Extract and Beersmith 2

    I really hate asking for help. I'm that kind of person that likes to figure things out for myself or to locate answers on my own. But this time I've run into a bit of trouble. I'm trying to input the dry rice extract MoreBeer! offers into Beersmith 2 and can't for the life of me find anything...
