    First SMaSH

    Hey all, Happy Friday!! So I've been brewing extract for years now and just since the beginning of the year I converted to all grain to help get the batch costs down as extract is expensive. Anyways, my first batch was a best bitter, undershot my OG a bit, but who cares? Beer finished out...

    Wyeast 2633 O Fest Blend Question

    Hey all! Took the plunge on my first lager Sunday morning with a Baltic Porter. Per my brewing software estimated OG was 1.077(I hit that number dead nuts on). I prepared a week before a multi-step starter of Wyeast 2633 to achieve a hefty roughly 800 billion cells for a solid pitch. It is an...

    Making a Kornøl

    For those of you that are of Nordic descent, you might be familiar with the types of Nordic ales. That being said, I am planning on making an extract recipe to mirror an early style of Kornøl, brewed with juniper tips and berries, not hops. I know that Vikings from Norway, Sweden and Denmark...

    Key Lime Kolsch style Ale woops

    So brewed up 5 gallons of a lovely Kolsch, and it was on day ten I decided to add about 4# worth of Key Lime puree. The SG at the time was 1.011, so it was about finished or was right there. Added the fruit, bumped the SG to 1.023, hasn't moved in about four days. The flavor is superb, just...

    Oh crap

    So I think I may have screwed up...was prepping some DME wort for my second step for my big starter for a BGS. I obviously wasn't paying attention and dumped the hot wort into my flask with the yeast cake(Wyeast 1388, which was at room temp). I immediately realized I was an idiot and got it...

    NB Golden Strong Ale

    Hey all! So I jumped for the Northern Brewer Belgian GSA extract kit and I've never done any sort of Belgian before. I know that yeast choice is important, but I also understand that fermentation temps are too. I ferment with a Catalyst, but don't have super fantastic temp control(if a sheet...

    Tommy Cream Ale question

    So after lurking and researching yeasts for a good cream ale, I decided to tilt the idea on it's head and try WLP005 instead of US-05 or 1056. I've had many cream ales and wanted to try something a bit different. I used the Northern Brewer Cream Ale kit for reference. Has anyone else tried an...
