    Being a fan of hoppy beers, I’ve tasted a lot of different expressions of IPA, IIPA, Session IPA, and in it sboom, the specialty IPA’s like White IPA, Red IPA, Rye IPA and, one of my favorites of that list, Black IPA or Cascadian Dark Ale. This style, according to the BJCP Guidelines, was...

    Adventures in Home Malting

    When I first started reading about brewing in earnest, I noticed that the words written about malting were rarely favorable, more often veering toward discouragement. Tedious, labor-intensive, and lengthy were the consensus; it requires too much space and immaculate hygiene, said home-brewing...

    Crystal Malts Reduce Fermentability: Fact or Fiction?

    We all know those topics that pop up time and time again on any home brewing forum. One of those topics is under-attenuation. Why didn't my beer attenuate? someone asks, followed by a string of replies asking how much crystal malt was used, after which ensues the explanation that the addition of...

    Gruit = LME!? and nothing to do with herbs!?

    CAUTION: This is NOT a thread about beer with herbs as you probably expect. Beers with herbs are great; I enjoy many of them very much. But, that's NOT necessarily the topic here. If intrigued, read on. If not, you can back out now before you fall down this rabbit hole. -- One beer...

    Marzen Recipe Tweak

    I brewed what I thought was an excellent Marzen last year that I entered in a competition. It scored a 40 so I guess I'm not completely crazy. ;) The biggest thing I got dinged on was that it lacked the right amount of bready toasted maltiness (I'm paraphrasing but you get the idea). And I can't...

    Is this grain okay for creating a Malt with?

    I'm trying to save money by creating my own malt. I've read online that animal feed should be O.K for brewing. Unfortunately I won't be able to inspect this grain before purchasing. But assuming the quality is okay, will this work for creating a malt? It's about $40 less then buying the same...

    How long do unmilled grains/vacuum sealed hops last?

    Long story short, there's an old brewery that closed down, and there are 55lb bags of unmilled malt and a few bags of vacuum sealed hops. I'm assuming they are no good, I think the brewery closed down in 2006, and these things were left behind, but just out of curiosity I wanted to know what...

    This is gonna sound like a crazy, possibly stupid question

    Can you malt marijuana seeds? I find myself curious what the flavor profile would be if you did so.

    Grains, post fermentation minerals and lab analysis

    Hey everyone, I've been wrapping my head around water profiles and mineral additions.. The final frontier of brewing for me it seems. We got great tools to calculate water profiles but since yeast, malts and other grains bring minerals to the table it seems kind of a black art to me to get a...

    What basic grains, yeast etc should I try with these hops?

    I'm new to this so my plan is to brew five 1-gallon batches to see what works well and what doesn't. The hops I grew myself, they are freshly harvested a few days ago and fully dehydrated. The first batch I started this weekend was based off a kit so I just used their malt mix, grains and yeast...

    Being a newcomer to extract brewing, I’ve been unsure on the topic of when to add malt extract during the boil... My friend and I are shooting to brew American style IPA, 12 litre boil size and 9 litre batch size, with light liquid malt extract. Is it best to add all the extract at the start of...

    Can Pilsner malt be too dry?

    I just finished my malt kiln built after Brewing Beer The Hard Way’s design with the computer fan and electric fry pan. My computer fan was too powerful with its 12v power supply and the temp never got above 27C, but my Pilsner malt went from 35% after germination down to 6% in just 11 hours! I...

    Malt storage - square, stackable, food safe, not Vittles/cost

    I know this has been gone over ad nauseum, but I have gone through the forum and have not come up with an answer. I hope this is specific enough to warrant its own thread. So, a very demanding query. I will be storing in our basement, 55F as an average, with a dehumidifier. I don't know...
