    Brewing by the Numbers | The Law of Averages Part 1

    The technical side of brewing has always been the most interesting to me. I enjoy the process (and the drinking), but the science behind it has always taken the limelight. I was reading the recipe for Biermuncher's Aberdeen Brown Ale...

    Understanding Yeast Fermentation Temperature Ranges

    Hey everyone! I’m really new to home brewing: I’ve brewed twice with others and I just set my first solo batch in the basement to ferment 3 days ago. Two more days til I add the dry hops! I want to start by acknowledging the mistakes I made when I was left responsible for the other batches and...

    My first brew!

    Brewed up my first batch I have ever done. Did the American pale ale kit that comes with the more beer deluxe kit. Can’t argue against a name like that! FREEDOM. Hoping everything turns out awesome! Fermenting in the dark in the basement for the 2 weeks. Biggest step that I learned, crack a beer...

    No Aroma!

    This is the weirdest outcome in 65 batches... Wanted nothing but a session pale ale instead I got a weird beer without any aroma. Considering the 8 oz of hops this doesn't make any sense. Anyone wants to give a 2 or 3 cents? Recipe Specifications -------------------------- Boil Size: 12.42 gal...

    To Filter or Not To Filter

    Question is as the title states but here is my problem statement: I brewed a Citra Pale Ale and Cider for a wedding. Both pretty straight forward, both came out tasting great. After cold crashing, I drew some samples Cider was clear, beer has was about 50% clear but I was fine with that. Fast...

    American Pale Ale Lemongrass + Hibiscus Pale Ale - perfect for spring patio sipping

    This is a great beer to sip on the patio as the weather gets warmer. Super easy drinking beer with great color and flavor profile. I didn't add any of the lemongrass or hibiscus until the last 5 days of fermentation along with my 1oz of centennial dry hop. Head has a nice subtle pinkness that...

    "GoldenEye" Pale Ale

    Yes, I am that guy that named his pale ale fermented with WLP 007 after a bond movie... haha, i'm sure there's been thousands of us! Considering entering this into a competition when it's finished, it's been fermenting for 4.5 days, passed high karusen in 2 days, big chunky flocced yeast storm...

    In The Pines West Coast Pale Ale

    Hey everyone. This is a great autumn beer with a really nice pine flavour from the Chinook and Simcoe, along with a slight bit of grapefruit that's not overwhelming (like some IPAs can be) I had some friends by on the weekend and they went through over half the keg, so I'll be making another...

    Yeast question: My Wyeast 1187 was expired, pitched S-04 10 hours later, 1187 is swollen. Mix?

    Making a clone of Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale (single hop cascade) My Wyeast 1187 smack-pack was expired so I smacked it and waited a day, saw some but little swelling. About 10 hours ago I pitched a pack of dry S-04. Now, 10 hours later, the 1187 is completely swollen. Since I was looking...

    Amount of rye malt

    Just planning to use rye malt for the first time. What do you think is the best amount (% of total grain) to use when I am looking for a slight but noticeable influence on beer taste. I know that high amounts of rye can cause wort separation problems, but how low can you go not to lose the rye...

    Water Adjustments Starting with RO/Distilled

    Hey everyone, I was previously using local well water to brew with, and had some great results, but our well yield has dropped significantly since my last couple brews, so I've been using RO water (without any additions) with just OK results. I'm interested in building up my brew water from...

    Batch #10 Pale Ale... I need some input on my recipe choices!

    This will be my 10th batch and I'm trying to brew up a really tasty hop bursted APA. I also took my first stab at creating a recipe based on all of the stuff I've learned over the last 3 or 4 months. I'm wondering if you guys think Simcoe would work as a good bittering hop in this recipe? If you...

    I need a good recipe for these 4oz of Denali hops a friend just gave me...

    I'm a 5-6 gallon BIAB fiend. I was just gifted 4 oz of some Denali hops from a buddy and would love to know what you guys think I should pair them with.

    The Big Cheap and Easy Cascade Pale Ale Recipe

    I’ve been working on a bunch of variations of this one. I think I finally found a winner. I know there are a few good apa recipes on here. The attempt was to add one of my own that I perfected with time. I was always looking to create a cheap and easy cascade pale ale in the Sierra Nevada vein...

    Hops suggestion for pale ale recipe

    Howdy, I’m new to homebrewing. I’ve brewed 3 different kits but I want to make my own pale ale recipe. I’ve read “The Beer Bible” and “How To Brew” for good background knowledge. I’m concidering using brewer’s gold as the bittering hop, but I’m unsure about what to use for the aroma hop. I want...

    American Pale Ale Crystal Cold Snap APA

    . This is a great beer for the summer. Crisp and clean, a little grainy, with pleasant hop aroma. It's a thirst quenching brew and may have a white wine character depending how you treat the yeast. Basically, it's a Kölsch with balls or a pale ale with with a little refinement. Goes down easy...
