    What can I do with this? Recipe advice needed.

    Sounds strange... no offense, but I might need to get a "+1" on this. Someone also said I could do it with Yams.

    What can I do with this? Recipe advice needed.

    So, I ordered the Pumpkin Ale kit from Austin Homebrew. Much to my dismay, the kit does not come with pumpkin of any sort - which is a problem for two reasons. 1. They don't advertise that you will need to go to the store when you buy the kit... and their kits are usually complete. Its annoying...

    Orange Clove Beer for Fall - recipe help needed

    I know I have had commercial brews that had orange and clove flavors in them, yet a google search gives me 0 hits when i try to find a home grain bill with it. I am new to the ad lib brewing (putting together recipes) but can follow directions pretty well. Any chance someone has done a recipe...

    Hmmmm... Is it even worth it to brew now?

    So, I ordered an all grain kit from my AHB. Because I couldn't brew right away, I decided to get unmilled. When I found out that a certain female owner at a certain LHBS refuses to mill my grains despite spending gobs-o-cash there, I tried to do it myself via a rolling pin. It went well, for the...

    Tarnished Wort Chiller?

    I am noticing that my wort chiller is becoming tarnished in random places. Probably oxidation from my hands? Thoughts? Is this normal? Is it still usable?

    Immediate help needed! I don't have a carboy cap that fits.

    I got that. Wrap the cap in tinfoil or just to connect it to the airlock?

    Immediate help needed! I don't have a carboy cap that fits.

    I am assuming this is a temorary solution, then sit airlock on top? Or wrap the tinfoil around the cap that doesnt fit? The cap I have is too big...

    Immediate help needed! I don't have a carboy cap that fits.

    I went to a new store, and picked out a 6.5 gallon carboy and the cap they advertised that fits. Got it home, and silly me for not checking because the sucker don't fit. Now I have a batch of beer sitting in the fermenter with nothing to seal contaminants out. Ideas? Thanks.

    Belgian Pils Malt Substitution

    It looks like my only two options are Breiss Carapils and Castle Pilsen and Weyermann Pilsner. Thoughts?

    Belgian Pils Malt Substitution

    I screwed up a batch, and need to rebuy my grain bill. On it, it has Belgian Pils Malt, but my LHBS doesn't carry it. Adequate substitutions?

    What happens if my iodine test fails?

    Toseed out grain and mash - I will try this again next week.

    What happens if my iodine test fails?

    I waited until my themometer reached 170.... I added it to the tun and took a temperature... 155. An hour later, I stuck the thermometer all the way down and it read 180. So, I should check this and start over, yeah?

    What happens if my iodine test fails?

    So what you are telling me is that there is no way I can rectify this without starting over? I have no more crushed grains on me - so it is a simple "yes we can save it" or "no we cant" i need to stop now.

    What happens if my iodine test fails?

    the other stupid thing was that I took a reading of the temperature when it entered... 154 ish - upon the 60 minute period when I tested it again, it was like 180. Dunno how... dunny why... problem?

    What happens if my iodine test fails?

    So, I have let the grains steep for an hour or so inmy mash tun. When I poured it out, my iodine test failed to test the conversion. Let it sit or try something new?

    Honey At Bottling?? And Priming Sugar

    +1 to slowbie. A lot of people that get into mead making find themselves regretting it because it isnt what they expect. Honey, during fermentation, loses a lot of sweetness and actually makes the beer drier - like wine. However, if you insist on doing it, I found that proper carbonation of...

    Has anyone tried AHS's Honey Hibiscus Wit?

    Its funny - I just got mine delivered today as well. I havent opened the box yet (Alas the inconveniences of being at work), but are the petals whole? Is HIbiscus even a flower? ::intrigued::
