    Thinking Outside the Box

    We've all seen them at our local homebrew store; shelves filled with kits, tempting us, "Use me, I'm ready to brew, no thinking required." I heard a fellow homebrewer describe them as Betty Crocker brewing; just mix, boil, and enjoy. While there certainly are a lot of good things to say about...

    First recipes generated - thoughts?

    Apologies if this is not the right place or way to do this - I looked for rules, but maybe not hard enough? Anyway, I created a couple recipes and wanted to get opinions - the first is a best bitter, loosely based on ingredients I already have, and the second is an oatmeal stout - both british...

    Made it Up as I Went with Green Tea Beer recipe - Is it any good?

    I had the inspiration to concoct a tea beer recipe from scratch after watching a youtube video that suggested to avoid green tea due to it giving off too much bitterness (). My previous batch made from scratch with Vanilla beans, Honey, and butternut Squash had great results except for too high...

    Cidering undiluted FCAJ

    I spent a good deal of time yesterday reading the entirety of pappy's epic recipe thread. I was left wondering how close Pappy's recipe was to undiluted FCAJ concentrate, sugar wise. I spent some time this morning cranking out the numbers. It appears that pappy's recipe is roughly 36% sugar for...

    Recipe Variant

    I'm building an automated electric brewing technology for my brewery and I am trying to decide how best to implement the idea of a brew variant? Say a recipe calls for 5 lbs of a specific grain and I only have 4.9 lbs, I miscalculated :(. I'm in the garage ready to brew and this isn't a huge...

    Partigyle built on second runnings
