    Brown Rice Syrup

    So I'm trying to find some Clarified Brown Rice Syrup 42D near where I live with no luck. Is that the same as this type of brown rice syrup? I've ordered some rice syrup solids, but can those be used as a substitute?

    Alpha Amylase Enzymes

    Brew day complete! Final volume of 20L and an OG of 1.050. Pitched the yeast and now the waiting game begins! It smelt like wort should so perhaps that is a good sign?

    Alpha Amylase Enzymes

    Using the Brewer's Friend hydrometer reading calculator, the adjusted preboil gravity is 1.036. The wort does have a sweet taste to it, although there is still some starch in it. I'm letting it sit in the kettle for a bit before bringing it to a boil. The recipe for this brew is as follows: 3.5...

    Alpha Amylase Enzymes

    Did an iodine test after the 2 hour mark and it turned black. So I added another teaspoon of enzyme to the kettle; temp sitting at 66C, preboil gravity 1.020. I'm really hoping this works otherwise it's back to the drawing board..

    Alpha Amylase Enzymes

    Is there a calculator for how much to add to the mash? I'm brewing a GF Belgian Ale using Pale Millet, Buckwheat and Flaked Oats. I've found one recipe online which uses about the same amount of grain (10#) and uses 1 tsp of enzymes during mash. Edit: I added 1.5 tsp so we will see what...

    GF Snowman English Amber Ale

    Day 2 and I brewed the American IPA. I ran it through my cereal mill prior to mashing. I mashed at about 68-69C for 60 minutes with 10L of water. Had a pre-boil gravity of 1.020. Boiled for 60 minutes with the hop additions and adding 190g of dextrose at 60 minutes. Ended up with 6L of wort and...

    GF Snowman English Amber Ale

    I recently discovered that Canadian Homebrew Supplies carries GF AG kits from Snowman Brewing (http://homebrewsupplies.ca/category/gluten-free-ag/). So I purchased 2 of the 1 gallon kits and tried the English Amber Ale kit this morning. So far so good! The mash schedule they recommend is almost...

    Golden Ale

    I made a Summit Ale from glutenfreehomebrewing.org that used Millet and Buckwheat and it turned out fantastic! The colour of if was a bit of a darker golden ale which was very pleasant to drink. Although I will say that the mash schedule is a chore. It made for a long brew day.

    Golden Ale

    Looking to do a GF Golden Ale. The regular non-GF recipe I'm basing this on uses 0.5kg of wheat in it, which I haven't figured out what to replace it with so am just going with Buckwheat. 3.5kg Pale Millet 0.5kg Buckwheat 0.5kg Flaked Oats 0.8kg Rice hulls 0.75kg Clover Honey @ 10 minutes...

    What to do with 6 Cups of Cherries

    Sorry for the late reply. I haven't been on this site for ages. I made the mead that same weekend and it's been sitting in a 3 gallon carboy for the last 6 weeks. I figure I'll let it sit and age for a few months as that appears to be the norm for meads. Here's the recipe I used: 2 Gallons...

    What to do with 6 Cups of Cherries

    I believe I've sold myself on a Viking Blood Mead. Never made one before so why wouldn't I?

    What to do with 6 Cups of Cherries

    A friend of mine gave me 6 cups of frozen cherries he picked from his back yard. I thought what better way to use them then make a wine. What / how would I go about using these to make a tasty beverage? Thanks

    such a waste

    No worries there. There's nothing in it yet. Just filled with water to draw the ruler on it. But later tonight it'll be filled with an Irish Stout!

    In case anyone was wondering, here is the graduation in litres of the Speidel 30L

    such a waste

    Just ordered one of these: Speidel Plastic Fermenter I've read good things about these so I figured I'll give it a try. Can't be worse than the loose lid fermentor I'm currently using.

    such a waste

    A protein drink would have been great. Unfortunately all I could smell was vinegar. And the fruit fly eggs were a bit much. Time for some research and purchasing parts to make a temperature controlled fermenter enclosure.

    such a waste

    I was using a loose lid plastic fermenter. Now I'll be rethinking the whole setup to prevent this from happening again

    such a waste

    I saw some setups that use a glass carboy with tubing running into a bucket with sanitizer in it. Either that or maybe upgrade to a 7 gallon conical fermenter.

    such a waste

    I had a nice IPA percolating in the primary fermentor for a few weeks. I went out of town for work and came home to a swarm of fruit flies with eggs all over it. I cried a bit inside as the whole thing went down the kitchen sink.
