    Bacon beer question

    I have been being HOUNDED by my friend to try to develop a bacon beer. And I have been trying to research this "holy grail" of delicious. Seems like the consensus is to just make a rauchbier. I want to go more authentic though, and have been trying to think of ways to do this. My thoughts...

    High Gravity Chocolate Stout

    I recently made a Chili Chocolate Stout very similar to this recipes. Although I used Dark LME. I also used 6oz of unsweetened hersheys chocolate at 5 min. This was also a 4 gallon batch so I went heavy on the chocolate. When I racked to secondary I added 4 rehydrated ancho peppers and 2...

    Chili pepper chocolate stout

    From everything I have taken in, dry peppers should work. Also I talked to the brewer over at Tyranean, and they he showed me the chipotle's (dried) that they use. Although I didnt ask whether they boil or dry hop them.

    Chili pepper chocolate stout

    I am planning on doing a mini batch chocolate stout, and adding some heat to it. Probably cayenne peppers. My question is how to go about this, should I steep with specialty grains, add powder to the boil, or drop a couple peppers into the primary? Also, how much should I use? I dont want...

    First beer, first sample

    It was a kit with all the ingredients. Willamette hops for bittering, sterling for flavoring. Bavarian wheat LME, and others. If you really want me to list 'em all I can. It was a 55 minute boil, with steeped wheat, oats, and malt. It was fermented in a primary only, never racked to a...

    First beer, first sample

    I recently bottled my first ever attempt at homebrewing. It was a Brewers Best witbier kit. I feel like everything went pretty well. The only thing I think that I did a little bit off was I didn't add quite enough water to my carboy before fermentation. I was short by about a 1/4 of a...
