Bottling my American Wheat, drinking my American Wheat.
I wish you luck with your brew. I have been trying for a very long time to duplicate Guinness Draught. I haven’t done it yet and feel like I’m actually getting farther away. I’ve tried virtually everything I’ve read about and still haven’t made it. I really thought this batch was going to be better, but after drinking a few, it isn’t! I won’t give up though. After much thought and really thinking about how this tastes, it has to be the way I’m treating my water.@camonick I assume this is a dry Irish Stout. It seems that a Guinness clone is not as simple as expected...I have my own attempt keg conditioning now. It seems that perhaps steeping the roasted barley in a more acidic bath or adding later in the mash is part of it. We'll see how mine does. It is my first iteration, though. Cheers! RIck
I had a 10 lb bag of MO in my grain stash so I decided to do it. I got some guidance from @Immocles for this brew. I hope it turns out!! This hydrometer sample tastes promising.I have seen so many people recommend a MO/EKG smash on Reddit and I keep threatening to make one. Might be a good brew to try out on my new rig.
Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin shortcake, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin ice cream, baked pumpkin. I guess you either love it or hate it. I'm only one in the house who loves most things pumpkin. Everyone else is sweet potato..so I guess I'm behind enemy lines!!!That’s even debatable.
Sorry to hear that...put a damper on the ol 12oz curls for sure!!Drinking a couple after a freaky diagnosis...sigh...bruised Ulnar nerve, two torn tendons in my hand and two cracked wrist bones. Going to specialist this coming week...c'mon no surgery. Note to self...replace your studs on your wading boots before winter!

Feel free to PM me your water profile, grain bill and adjustments if you want another opinion.More HB Irish Stout
There’s still something off with this beer even though it’s a different recipe. I’ve come to the conclusion that there has to be something wrong with my water adjustments. I BIAB and use Bru’n water to build my water. Because these stouts use a small grain bill, I’ve been mashing with a smaller amount of water to thicken the mash and doing a pseudo sparge over the bag to get to my boil volume. I’m wondering if I’m using Bru’n water incorrectly and essentially double treating my water. That’s all I can think of right now. This beer tastes a little thin and acidic... just like a bunch of my previous attempts. Oh well, down the hatch.
