    Starting to think about HME and LME

    Many of us always put 2.5 gallons in.

    Starting to think about HME and LME

    Why not use all of the ingredients but only use a total of 4.5 gallons (2.25/LBK)? Slightly higher ABV without altering the beer much.

    Starting to think about HME and LME

    Dawg...I picked up a 5 gal recipe over the weekend. I measured out 2.5 gallons in my LBK and damn near goes to the top. Is there enough overhead with 2.5 gal in there to allow krausen without a keg explosion? Or can I probably expect an overflow? I will just have to find out I guess. Or.....use 40% of everything for the recipe, but I don't want leftover stuff I have to store. I just want to make it and if I like it, make it again, or mod it.

    American Burleywine

    I started a thread over in Advanced recipes about American Burleywine a while back. I mixed a batch up last night and I can see it really does not qualify as "Advanced", my apologies. It'll be interesting to see how it develops over time. I have a 2nd kit here for American Burleywine because they were on sale. And suggestions for changing up the next batch? I really don't want to wait 6-12 months to start the next round. thanks

    Wild Wheat variation

    3 weeks ago I started a 2.25 gallon batch of Wild Wheat. I also steeped 4 oz of Chateau Special B grains at 160F and added it to the wort just because I had it sitting around. Not sure what the hell I made but the aroma coming off of it was fantastic. Bottled it last night, I thought the sample was pretty good even without carb/conditioning. It's going to be an impatient 3-6 week wait now.

    So, have a question about the home brew competition, and since there is no official thread (yet), I have to post it here. Do I need to mention any or all Mr. Beer products used in making the beer?

    Registration - Check Hotel - Check Flight - Resolve next week Rental Car - Probably next week Personal expenses - No earthly idea how to do this one. Figure out what beer to bring...…….that's a tough one I went a bit rouge on the hotel. My plan is to arrive Wednesday 17, and fly out on Tuesday 23, thus I'm there for about a week. While the hotel that Mr. Beer is selecting for the event is excellent, since I'm going to stay more days, their rate will change for the non-conference days. Instead, I'm staying at the Extended Stay America -Tucson Grand Road. It's with walking (staggering) distance of the Sheraton Tucson, and between us is an IHOP in case I want breakfast (which I rarely eat). Plus with the savings, I get to sample more Tucson breweries Work on Flight will take a bit longer Rental car can wait a while What beer to bring...…...um...……. Can't wait for October

    Redwood Ale

    I just brewed this, steeped 2 row and carapils for 45 minutes, added a booster too. Should be delicious.

    Redwood Ale

    This is a good beer. I never would have been original enough to think of adding a Robust LME to the Northwest Pale Ale HME so thanks @MRB Josh R and @MRB Tim for that!

    Hops

    I did this recipe, and I was kind of worried I'd overdone it but the finished product came out pretty good. If you like Citra hops, you'll like this one. Obviously.

    Hops

    How much hops?? The latest 3 Zombies IPA Mr Beer is advertising, using NW Pale as base, uses 3!! oz of Citra hops. Can that really be enough? How does this sound? 1/2 oz -> boil 5 min, add 1/2 oz -> boil 5 min, flameout add 1.0 oz -> ferment 16 days, add 1.0 oz -> ferment 5 days..

    Stick on Thermometer

    I just happen to have things fermenting right now. Below is my sticker, temp gun says 69.6. I tried to get both in the shot but the lighting is tricky.

    Stick on Thermometer

    @TBONE 69 I'd just add that it's better to be a bit on the cool side than too warm, so even showing both I'd be okay with that on my fermenter.

    Stick on Thermometer

    Awesome.... Thanks for clarification
  28. Creeps McLane

    Stick on Thermometer

    I always go with the more solid color. If theyre both equally solid then i split the difference. To me, the difference in a degree doesnt bother me. As long as i know a ball park figure
