    Recipe Conversion: Vienna lager to Belgian dark strong....

    A long long time ago, perhaps in March I purchased all the ingredients for a Vienna Lager, Partial Mash. I jammed all the ingredients in the fridge/freezer and just never got around to it. Now that my basement is a nice 75*F and I am out of my bottled big beers I am wondering if I can convert...

    Sudden floating chunks!

    Ok, so I made my 1st all cider about 3 months ago, an English dry. Had it in primary bucket maybe a 2 months, transferred over to secondary carboy and it was not only super tasty, but crystal clear. I mean crazy clear, very little sediment moved with it(im a beer brewer). Pop a T-shirt onto...

    Graff (Malty, slightly hopped cider)

    Just got my ingredients today but altered it a bit, I wanted it fairly sweeter but will this be too sweet? 4oz Caramal 60 4oz caramel 90 2oz Honey Malt 2oz Carapils. Its not a huge difference. Also I have safale 04 and Notty, unsure what one I want to go to go with att, probably...

    American Pale Ale 8 Parsec Pale Ale BIAB/PM

    As I have changed over from all extract to Partial Mash/BIABS I always have to go and convert all the recipes I imitate over from either extract or AG, so I decided that when I make a decent PM of my own i'll post it up for any other people like me who like or have to do Partial Mashes This...

    Does using a few different brands of cider/AJ increase complexity?

    Is their any benefit whatsoever from using a medley of juices? So I have 3 gal Motts, 1 gal of a cider and 1 gallon of another fancy A. juice. I know if pressing apples using many types of apples adds complexity, will it make a difference if using store bought pasturized? Thanks!

    Graff (Malty, slightly hopped cider)

    Im stoked to try this over the weekend. I started reading about mead and got excited for that(I live down the street from Ken Schramms and B. Nektar) but honey is expensive so I decided on cider instead. Sadly I dont feel like messing around with backsweetening so the thought of just mini...

    Belgian Yeast in Cider?

    :off:This. That is extremely Neopolitan, I just had to laugh because thats exactly how it would go down. When I lived out in Licola I just ordered everything offline, could find a damn thing local even though everyone makes there own wine/cheese/Liquor.(I was doing beer only att) One good...

    Wow! Apfelwein is good

    So you just racked poured the AJ directly onto the trub cake? Thats sounds easy, I love easy.... I might try a cider on my upcoming Wyeast London ale 3 yeast as well as on my WLP 570. Also got 3lb of local honey around, experimenting with booze is fun!

    Lots of foam but no airlock activity

    Im having the same problem right now, Split my batch into 2, carboy is going nuts, my ale pale has no airlock activity but much foam. Should I rack it out of the ale pale sooner due to this most likely crappy seal or not even worry about it?

    Hops to use for a Ginger IPA

    I actually seen that Honey Ginger Recipe, looked good and really its one of the recipies I looked at to get my 7ozish quantity, just wanted to get the ABV up a little into the IPA range with a whole lot of citrus hop presence, a little ginger heat with a bit of ginger flavor and aroma mixed in...

    Hops to use for a Ginger IPA

    Any recomendations? I'm looking at maybe 5-7oz of ginger with 20 minutes left in the boil, and maybe 2 oz ginger as a dry hop. I dont have the recipe worked out yet, but would like to take recomendations on what hops would work well with the ginger, I want it to have absurd hop...

    Bray's One Month Mead

    Only semi related question! I have a beer right now in primary with 1388, a 5.6% belgian pale ale. I was looking for something to do to reuse the yeast with it once I bottle the beer and never thought of Mead. In a few weeks my brew club has someone from a cider mill coming around with his...
