    Malt Question

    I have not been on the forum in quite sometime so I apologize. As I am sure this has been brought up before. I just doin't feel like trying to search the next 4 hours away finding the thread. I previously made the jump from extract to all-grain. My first all grain batch was horrible and I know why. I am wondering how much malt should be used in a typical 5 gallon batch. I heard 3 pounds per gallon which is what i tried. I was just wondering what you guys thought. On a brighter note one of the main resons i havent been on is I landed my dream job I am now a brewer for Samuel Adams and working like crazy. however the comparison to our brews to a 5 gallon batch are just a bit different hahaha

    Too Much Coriander?

    hey craigger. I use corriander in the candian ale that i make. My LHB sells corriander seeds in 1oz packets I have used that each time in the mulsin sack while the boil takes place and i have found that it has a subtle corriander taste after the 2-2-2

    malt question

    I have gotten a hook up through a friend who works at a local brewery with hops and malts so i figured i would make the jump from throwing some adjuncts into a kit and start making the kits with added hops and malt. I was wondering if any of you guys doing anything different than steep your malt and then add it later or do you boil it right along with your hops just looking for some pointers so this beer doesn't become a total bust. CHEERS

    Apple Pie Wheat

    Hey guys I just brewed an apple pie wheat that i call 38 Special. I was absolutley amazing so i figured i would let ya guys know what I did in case any one wants to try it. Obviously start with the wheat refill. I cut up and pureed 5 granny smith apples and then used 1 1/2 tsps of apple pie spice. At first you get the surness of the granny smith and then it finishes with a pie flavoring its amazing and the entire famly is loving this beer CHEERS

    Exploding Bottles.

    so from all the advice i have come to the conclusion that the beer had not finished fermenting as i ha though it did. each bottle got excatly the same amount of sugar due to the mr beer sugar thing-a-majig. looks like i should have let it sit for a while. however i am happy to report that so far only 6 have exploded nothing like coming home from working night shift to have to clean up glass instead of going to bed. o well lesson learned. all of my beer will now sit a week longer than i normally let it sit. thanks guys for all the advice i really appreciate it

    Exploding Bottles.

    Hey guys i know this is a problem that has plagued us at some point or another. I think i have ever only had 6 bottles blow up on me in about 4 years I have been very fortunate till now lol. I made a standard vinna lage kit i added 1cup brown sugar 2 tsp of vanilla and about 2 tbsps of cinnamon. I have made this before without the vanilla. I bottled them no problemm. put my vinyl labels on them. put them back down in the brewery and i have now had 6 bottles explode. When i saw explode i mean the biggest peice i have found was about the size od a quarter. I can't figure it out please help. I'm not sure if some how it got shook up to much if thats even possible. just trying to figure out why this happen so i can prevent it next time i make this recipie. CHEERS
