A few years back quite a few of the local brew shops had 55? gallon barrels of muntons extract in their shops. They would rig them up so they would back fill with co2 as the syrup was drawn. Maybe their suppliers setup is something similar.richanne said:Prepackaged extract typically comes in 3.3 lb. containers, so the fact that he's including 6.6 lb. is a tad suspicious. Recipes used to all call for amounts of extract divisible by 3.3, but not anymore.
What kind of strong beer do you like? I may have a couple of recipes tucked back, thats all I make really is strong beer.Loki said:How can I make the ALC% stronger without dueing too much damage to the taste, I'm thinking about buying a "Bell's Two Hearted Ale" copy kit of E-Bay...
You'll want to buy some from a brew supply shop, mill it there, then steep in your brew kettle for ~ 30-45 minutes at 150F before bringing the water to boil. this will give the beer some color (depending on the type of crystal malt), and give it a nice body.Mark said:So should I steep it or boil it or something? or can I just smash it up and throw it in the barrel and shake?! : )
Also, can you make a beer using only that? Or is it better to use a kit and add some Crystl malt as an addition?
