    First Partial Mash, Short Boil, DMS Potential?

    Let me start off by saying this was not an experiment. On Saturday I tried my first BIAB and partial mash. While I was bringing my kettle to boil, I used a smaller kettle for mashing grains separately: 8 oz of 2 row 8 oz of crystal 40 I kept the grain kettle in the oven to help insulate it...

    New to brewing, very limited equipment.

    All i have is a 8 gallon(ish) kettle and an electric stove top. I have made a couple of extract batches with some steeping grains, which came out at around 4-5 gallons. The stove managed the boil very well and i think it could go up to most of the 8 gallons. The two beers i made have been...

    Infection after 3 months in two batches

    In the end it happened: after 5 years of homebrewing, my beer got infected. The problem is that I really cannot understand how and why. I am always careful, almost paranoid with cleaning, but this seems a really strange infection. I made 2 batches in parallel, a white IPA and a black IPA...

    Hi, HBT. Longtime lurker finally signed up for some advice and apologies in advance for what will probably be a wall of text. First some background info.

    Why Would Steeping Grains Include 2 Row?

    I just bought a BIPA extract kit and the steeping grains include a pound of pale malt. I've been doing my homework and found many a thread with conflicting information. Some say steep as usual and just get a small amount of flavor from the pale malt. This seems to fly in the face of everything...

    Everything was going so well...

    So I brewed up an AHS APA today, partial mash, full boil. Everything went great, no problems, smooth all the way. I get the wort into my primary bucket and take the gravity reading and get 1.044 (adjusted). According to the AHS recipe and Beersmith I should have come out with a 1.051 OG. I...

    Using Maris Otter in a partial mash recipe

    For a simple Pale Ale, in addition to using other grains, like Munich and Crystal, would adding in a pound of Maris Otter (as opposed to American 2-row) add anything noticeable to the final beer? What are some people's experiences with using MO in a partial mash recipe?

    Critique? Belgian Saison Partial Mash

    Trying to keep as close to the style as possible. Added a little acidulated malt for flavor rather than PH. I have been using Deathbrewers stovetop partial mash method. Mash at 155 for 45 min. Sparge at 170 for 20. This gave me a 75% efficiency last time, but set this up at 70 for good luck...
