    WLP036 Review

    I originally pitched this yeast on Kaiser's Altbier recipe and then pitched a dunkel style on the yeast cake because my pipeline didn't have the time to do a lager justice. This is a great yeast. It needs to ferment cooler than the WLP website says. The Altbier fermented around 61 degrees...

    altbier help

    Have you checked our Kaiser's recipe? I just bottled a batch and it tasted fantastic without carbonation. I didn't do a decoction and I used WLP036 (dusseldof altbier yeast). After racking off that yeast cake I followed with a dunkel recipe. I'm interested in the taste difference of the...

    South East Brewery Tour...suggestions??

    You need to go to Asheville if you're hitting NC. It's quickly becoming the beer capital of the east coast. Also, if your heading into Georgia I highly recommend Terrapin (in Athens GA) and/or Sweetwater (in Atlanta)

    Terrapin Hop Karma (India Brown Ale)

    Brewers, I just wanted to re-post a recipe that I found while searching for a Terrapin Hop Karma clone. All credit is due to marc06. It's his recipe, but I wanted to re-post and share. If you're a fan of this beer I highly recommend. I think the style fits perfectly with the weather as it...

    Ordering Custom Recipes Online

    Does anyone know of a homebrew website that allows for custom grain weight purchases (as in 1/4 lb, etc). I'm looking for a website where I can order my recipe crushed and delivered. Thanks for the help gents. :mug:

    Altbier Grain Bill Calculation Question

    Does anyone know of a good/free online homebrewing calculator that I can plug in the percentage of each grain in my bill to calculate for a 5 or 6 gallon batch? I'm trying to use Kaiser's Altbier recipe for a 5 or 6 gallon batch with a boil volume of 7.9 gal to finish with 6 gallons. Any...

    Special Roast Question

    Thanks for the help. I'll probably save the rest for a brown ale or something. Would the special roast go well in a Brown Ale?

    Special Roast Question

    I'm brewing the following "clone" recipe for Terrapin's Hop Karma this weekend. I could only find the "Special Roast" in a 1 pound bag. The recipe, courtesy of marc06, calls for .6 pounds. Should I add the whole pound? I've never brewed with this grain before and don't know much about it's...

    Crushing a pound at home? Without mill?

    Immersion Chiller Forming Question

    Did you wrap the copper around the outside of the bucket, or did you coil it inside of the bucket? I like the diameter that coiling inside the bucket would give me. I just don't know how easy that would be vs coiling around the outside of the bucket.

    Immersion Chiller Forming Question

    I just received 50 feet of 1/2 inch copper from coppertubingsales.com . The problem is that I don't keg or have a corny laying around to use as a mold/form. Has anyone else used something different to form their immersion chiller? I do have a new keggle that I'm trying to make it for. I...

    One or two packets of Notty?

    Do I need to pitch 2, 11 gram packets of Notty, or will one be enough. I'm using the yeast for Edworts haus pale ale.

    First All Grain Batch... I need a recipe!!!

    Thanks for the Alt recipe. I was originally thinking about an Alt yesterday. I went by my local beer store to try and pick up a bottle of an Alt to try the style first. They didn't have one in stock, but it essentially sounds like an ale version of an oktoberfest.

    First All Grain Batch... I need a recipe!!!

    I'd like something that goes well with the incoming fall. I enjoy pretty much everything. I would like to stay away from something overly hopped. I was thinking about something like Terrapin's Hop Karma (formerly known as India Brown Ale).

    First All Grain Batch... I need a recipe!!!

    Brewers, I need some help picking out a trusted recipe for my first all grain batch. I recently converted a chest freezer to a ferm chamber so I do have the ability to accurately control my ferm temps. I wouldn't mind doing a Marzen/Oktoberfest, but I need to keep the pipeline going and...

    Given my system, how long to ferment?

    Thanks for the help. Any thoughts on bringing the temp up for a day or two before cold crashing?

    Given my system, how long to ferment?

    Brewers, I feel like I finally have a good fermentation system. I can control temps in my chest freezer using the ebay temp controller build I found on here. I also pitch a very healthy, large starter (2L for a 5 gal batch as calculated from mrmalty.com). I currently have a vigorous...

    Wyeast arrived swollen

    Mine came the same way a couple of days ago. I put it in the fridge and it did shrink a little. Still not enough to pop the inner bag. I just made a starter, cut the inner bag with sterilized scissors and poured the whole thing in. It made a nice starter and I just pitched it about an hour...

    Did I make my starter too early?

    Sooo... I got a little excited and may have made my starter too early. I pitched a wyeast smack pack of 1056 in a 2L starter this morning and it's fermenting pretty strong right now (5:00 pm). Its chugging away in my ferm chamber at proper temps. I'm out of town until Friday plan on brewing...
