    One mash, two beers - Steeping

    Hi. My question is: If I do a 10gal mash of say an English Bitter consisting of MO+C60+Amber. Would it be ok to split that mash in two and add some steeped grains in just one of the worts? Lets say I add some Chocolate + C120 to one batch making it into something like a Porter. That way with...

    It's Easy to Make a Killer IPA

    First I would like to give you a little background about myself. I have been brewing beer for only about a year now and it's been all extract and mainly kit beers. I recently bought a new kettle and some other equipment so I'm moving to all grain BIAB. I gave up bottling several months ago and...

    Adding roasted grain post-fermentation

    Replacement For Flaked Corn

    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...

    Steeping without a grain bag

    I received a kit in the mail yesterday, but the grain bag was missing. There's no homebrew store in town, and if I don't brew this weekend I won't have another opportunity for about 10 days. Is there a way to steep the grains without a bag? I thought about just dumping the grains in the...

    Coffee Percolater

    I have an old 4 gallon, aluminum, percolater. Could it be used to make an all-grain beer? I have only seen one article with the concern or the temps being too high. The basket seems to be large enough for almost 3 quarts of grain.:confused:
