    Stout final Gravity and water

    Hello, I brewed a Black is Beautiful stout 10 days ago but am uncertain about its final gravity and the water adjustments made. Here is the recipe for an 11 litre batch ... My OG was 1.066 and I mashed a 154 for 60 mins. I pitched US-05 at 67 and it fermented at 68. After five days the...

    Vienna Pale Ale

    Hello, I have no base grains Pale Ale, Pilsner or Maris Otter and want to use up malts that I bought in April. I pieced together an ale with Vienna as the hero (of which I only have 1.3 kg). I was inspired by these threads and came up with my own recipe based on ingredients in stock...

    Belgian Blonde with Pale 2-row??

    Hello, just bottled an IPA and had the same FG as the batch of the Belgian Blonde of 1.020. Its been in the FV two weeks and I was expecting FG 1.012. I set aside a small volume (.5l) just for testing gravity. It was in a different container and I added the same yeast (Safale 05). I measured...

    Belgian Blonde with Pale 2-row??

    i always spin the hydrometer to get the bubbles off. last night, i brought the glass carboy upstairs, where its a bit warmer, to be ready for bottling this morning. i noticed bubbles coming from the bottom, something i hadn't noticed in the cellar. could the warmer temperature have influenced...

    Belgian Blonde with Pale 2-row??

    I just bottled today and was surprised to see the FG at 1.020 !! I was just as surprised to take another reading, but this time from beer that was closer to the remaining troub at the bottom of the bucket, and the FG reading was ... 1.002 !! So much for accuracy. The mash temperature on that...

    How much water do I need?

    OK, I see - well, I played around with the numbers in Brewfather, based on your tip, and found something reasonable comparing to my first few batches. I will keep better track of volumes now too. Before, I could only estimate, but i've just etched markings on the inside of my kettle :yes...

    Seriously the easiest DIY ever for bottling bucket dip tube

    I couldn't find the elbow piece in PVC. However, I ended up finding the right size, but its brass. Its not the most elegant hunk of metal, but it should do the trick. Would brass affect the beer taste or is there any potential absorption of lead?

    Belgian Blonde with Pale 2-row??

    Hello, I am going to brew this in a few days: 1-Gallon Blonde Ale Recipe - BeerCraftr I compared with other Blonde Ale recipes and they all use pilsner malt. Is it surprising to see a pale malt for this style? Also, I thought a longer mash of 90 minutes is preferred for a pilsner to...

    3rd Brew - Belgian Dubbel

    So, I just bottled this batch. Final Gravity was 1.006. Seems quite far from the target of 1.013. Could this be due to the fact that I had to add and extra 6oz of malt to get the necessary efficiency? My OG was 1.068 and target was 1.070. I drank some of the sample at bottling time and...
