    To The New Brewer - Extract Or All Grain

    To the New Brewer - Should I Start with Extract Kits, or Turn it up to 11 with All-Grain Brewing? "Nick, I know you're pretty new to brewing. It looks like fun, it's something I'm looking to get into - and I'm wondering: should I start with extract kits, or jump right into purchasing the...

    Plating Yeast & Selecting Colonies

    I've seen several articles on this site about the proper way to slant yeast but haven't found one that shows the process of streaking yeast onto a plate and selecting individual colonies. This is the method I use. It's not flawless and it certainly has room for improvement but it's cheap and...

    Lazy Man's Starter- Ran out of Propper Starter at Inopportune Time

    So I've been using Propper Starter for a while now. I love it, it's so convenient. I pour the starter can in the flask, then fill up with distilled water, pitch the yeast, and set it on the stir plate. But alas, I needed to get my starter going tonight, and I found I had run out of Propper...

    Partial grain partial extract brew

    I was hoping to do a little bit of my own flavoring by using some grain in a BIAB, but then adding a DME or LME to get me a higher OG than what I can get using grains without a mash tun. 5 gallon kettle so not near big enough for a full boil. A couple of questions: 1. Is there anything I...

    Can I rescue a really low OG ?

    I have just put my wort into the fermentation vessel, measured the og and found it is way off, 1032 rather than 1062 as i forgot to add some of my grain. (3kg golden promise) I have read that you can adjust the OG with DME, but as this is so far out, I wondered if it was worth pursuing this...

    Replacing some DME with table sugar to get a lower FG

    Hello everyone. I've done about 6 extract brews now (American IPAs) with Light DME. It's producing a lovely colour and flavour, but consistently finished at 1.020 or just below, with a starting gravity of 1.050. It tastes and smells great but I'd really like to be hitting the 5% abv with a...

    Dissolving DME in cold water to scale up recipe

    Hello everyone. New brewer here (well, on my fifth batch of the summer and totally addicted!) This forum has been a huge help to me and so here I am with my first post. Please be gentle! I've so far been doing 1 gallon batches from extract (light DME) and experimenting with different recipes...

    Steeping Speciality Grains in DME solution?

    I'm planning a big stout but because I have a GF I'm going to have to use a lot of DME. If I dissolve 3.5kg of dme in a few litres of water can I steep speciality grains in it? Chocolate and Carapills? I've tried reiterating mashing, sparging too much and boiling longer but it's just easier to...

    Miscalculated DME quantities, now OG is way too low

    All, I totally brainfarted when making a 10-gallon extract gose. I added 6lbs mix of briess light, and bavarian. I measured out my gravity and wrote it down without actually paying attention to how low it is. i'm about a 1.5 weeks after brew day, and i haven't taken my FG yet, but is it too...

    CBW Munich DME Rock Solid Brick

    I received today my American IPA kit from Palmer Brewing Solutions, and was surprised about the CBW Munich DME bag. It is rock solid, i've never seen something like that and couldn't find anything about it online. I found the spec sheet of the product here...

    DME Adding through out boil

    When I first started home brewing I would add my DME / LME at time intervals according to my recipe BUT sometimes I would add it all at 30min if the times were not on the recipe. Sometimes this resulted in over boiling and a mess on my stove. It was recently brought to my attention that many...

    So...I accidentally doubled my DME

    Stupid ****ing metric vs imperial in these recipes! :mad: I entered the wrong thing in my calculator and wound up doubling the DME in my Irish Red, I put it in the basement to ferment yesterday so I'm not sure there's anything to be done at this point? Is it saveable? Will it end up super sweet...

    Barleywine - 5 Gal - Mash tun not big enough

    Hi guys, I'm a fairly new All Grain brewer (2 batches so far... haven't tasted them yet, but excited for them to be ready!!), but have brewed a few extract batches. Now looking to make a Barleywine. I haven't picked a recipe yet, but I've tried making a high gravity beer in my mash tun, only...

    LME vs DME -- taste difference?

    This question is not about what can be done or what's "good enough" or what some people's preferences are or what experimentation is encouraged. This question is about, if I were to run the experiment, what would my expected results be in terms of difference in taste. The Question: Other than...

    What the funk is going on with my Hefe?

    I am trying to brew a German hefeweizen - it's my favorite kind of beer. I've been trying for about 2 years to get the brew I'm looking for. I love the banana clove bubble gum flavor in a good Hefe but can't seem to get anywhere close to it. So I am stumped. Every time it gets a weird flavor...

    How to determine if my Starter has enough cells?

    Greetings, My first post ahead of my first attempt at all grain. I have 2 packets of white labs liquid yeast (WLP830) delivered next day, but they were at room temperature for 2 days before I was able to get them into my fridge. The packaging date was 24-JAN-18, so as of this post they are...

    15 Minute Kitchen Sink Hoppy Wheat Brew Day and Recipe

    Having run out of home brew, and the triticale IPA not being ready yet, I decided to brew a small batch. I used what DME I had in the closet and a lot of Centennial hops to see what I could brew. In all the brew day was sonly 2 hours not including the 20 minutes I spent cleaning up the kettle...

    Stupid DME mistake!

    Hadn't brewed for about a year, used a Belgian Wit Brewer's Best clone kit. Wasn't paying attention and I poured in the liquid DME into the hot water when it was actually time to steep the grains. No way to fix it at that point, so I continued the rest of the recipe as usual, steeping the...
