Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Brewed up v2.0 of my Thanksgiving Cranberry Wheat. It's more a NEIPA hybrid. Used Magnum hops for bittering, with Citra, Calypso and Galaxy for aroma. Plan to rack into secondary on top of the...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Went to bottle the first of a 5 gallon batch of a Scottish ale my friend and I brewed. My half of a 10 gallon batch which he got half of. I split into thirds, flavoring one with Scotch soaked oak...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Brewed a White Russian Imperial Stout today. Calling it, "The Dude Abides". It's a blonde stout that'll be flavored with Kaluha soaked oak blocks and coffee beans. Missed my efficiency by about 5%,...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Question about using alcohol soaked oak cubes in a secondary. How long do you soak for, before adding?

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Brewed a Deschutes Black Butte Porter clone today. Hydrometer sample is tasty. :tu

Sampled my first bottle of my hibiscus wit. Needs more hibiscus. But still a good beer, more like a typical wit....

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Went by the local HBS to get a few things for my next brew. Was going to get a 3gal carboy, but that has this. It'll hold 2.5gal. Perfect for what I do.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Bottled the hibiscus wit. Hope I didn't create bottle bombs. Underestimated the amount in the secondary by about 1/4 gallon for a 1.7 gallon batch. Was shooting for 2.7 vols of carbonation. Closer to...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

First brew in a while. A standard Wit (50% flaked wheat/50% pale 2 row), some EKG hops and orange peel/coriander near the end of the boil. Plan is to add a hibiscus tea at bottling. Per brewers...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

It can be, if you decide you need all the big, fancy gadgets to brew. But you'd be amazed at what you can do with the 1 gallon kit.

A bock or dopplebock might be hard to do without specialized...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Brewed a milk stout today. I'm dialed in on efficiency with the brew in a bag setup. Hit 82% this batch (80% on the last two). Now I just need to get my volumes right. Had to boil it down to get to...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Drank the last of my 12oz Xmas Carrot Cake Ales. Finally starting to get some carbonation. These I didn't put in the tote. Tastes great though. I have 4-5 more 22oz bottles left.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Correct. Based on everything I read, it's 70% fermentable, compared to table sugar at 100%. So a little more is used. Northern Brewer has a nice calculator to figure it all out. I just hope my...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

So planning my next brew. Was thinking either a porter or stout. Probably a stout since I just drank the last of my Mexi-chocolate stout. Just bottled my maple pecan brown on Sunday. Used maple syrup...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Intersting. An hour after pitching the yeast, I already had a bubble in the airlock. It's 3.5 hours later and it's picking up frequency. :D

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Brewed my latest batch this morning, a maple pecan brown. Just aerated and pitched the yeast. If the taste from the hygrometer is any indication of how this one will taste, we have a winner. And I...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

No worries. My LHBS has the other types of tablets, where's it's one big honkin' tablet for each bottle. With that, you're stuck with one level of carbonation. These smaller tablets allow you to...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

I'm using the type that are 3-5 per bottle. They're about the size of a aspirin.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

When I was brewing before, I had switched to egging. Now that I'm back in the game, but doing really small batches, it doesn't make sense to keg. I'm using priming tabs. Basically sugar tablets....

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Sampling my first two batches, after about two weeks of bottle conditioning.

Mexi-chocolate milk stout - meh. Hoping more time might help. I went with low priming in the bottle, but there was no...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Brewed my Fluffer Nutter Porter this evening. Did a double mill of my grains. Bumped my efficiency up just over 80%. :tu

OG into fermentor was 1.072. I hope my yeast (WLP013) can handle it. If...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

Bottled my Xmas Carrot Cake Ale this evening. Not a bad first attempt. Tasted the sample in the hygrometer flask. Needed more vanilla. Still pretty happy with it.

Next up to brew is a Fluffer...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

I used Safale US-05, a dry yeast. It's supposed to be very clean/crisp which is what I was wanting since I knew I'd be adding adjuncts.
