    Churchill’s brown ale

    I just got 4 of these on sale , has anyone got a recipe for a Scottish ale with this as a base?
  2. Has anyone ever tried brewing with a wooden shoe? I keep seeing this item in my a.g. recipes and I really don’t know when I should add it?

    Doppelmunder Import?

    I know this is late response compliments to your beer but recently I got another friend Finally started brewing with a Mr. Beer kit I gave him over a year ago along with a Dortmunder and an Octoberfest lager. About a few months ago he asked me to come over and help him get started on this kit and when I got over to his house he had these two beers in the fridge. It dawned on me that one of them was a Dortmunder I brewed with 6 german hops. We poured two glasses worth and I must say that was probably the best german lager I’ve ever tasted! Plus I drank it Very slow bcuz of the ABV% slap in the face! My friend told me if I had enuf patience I cud enjoy this! I really just can’t wait a year man.....

    cold yeast need advice

    My yeast infection was in my hair on my head u know the head that sits on my shoulders....... a bad case of dandruff and the scalp flakes would fall on my body and cause irritation and swelling. The skin doc told me it was a yeast infection.... so there’s no dark and ugly door here unless I’m staring in a mirror drunk and naked lol

    Trapping Wild Yeast

    Fermenting bucket instead of using LBK

    ive slightly over filled my LBK past the recommended mark on the side so I could get a little more out of the volume and had over flowing issues from the vents and as well a very lively active fermentation in process

    Trapping Wild Yeast

    I use a bear trap for my yeast traps, not as effective as long as you have lots of patience i'm still waiting and its been six months.

    Build me a recipe

    well i'm about to try out the Omega yeast packets, and recently got the Gigayeast DIPA packet in for a creative NEIPA experiment!!! Began another saison/brett this next weekend until some a$$hole stole my yeast packet off of my front porch about 30 minutes b4 I got home! but I didn't know it was shipping so soon. I just hope they enjoy the yeast slurry fermenting into their belly!!!! IDIOTS!!!!! LOL! So I just got back an hour ago from my LGBT, uh I mean my LHBS and decided with the White Labs American Farmhouse Ale blend to use in place of the stolen yeast.

    Coopers Recipes For Craft HMEs

    will be transferring this Coopers Traditional Draught into the secondary fermenter Saturday, so I tried a small sample shot glass yesterday and really impressed how this is gonna turn out! almost a cross from an Australian ale and a mild English bitter. I used 2 ounces of whole williamette hops, along with some pellet hops as well and it sure shows in the taste. I used safbrew-33 for the heck of it, and satisfied how it turned out as well. The real test will be in about a month and a half when it'll be already bottled and ready to drink

    What da hey is up with my beer?

    if it tastes good don't dump it. I had a recent keg over carbed and ended up pouring it into a 2 gallon pitchr, let it settle down in the fridge and drank it. it was great tasting, just too much foam regardless what I attempted

    American Lager, Low Maintenance

    i'll give it a try thanx Bonsaii!

    American Lager, Low Maintenance

    since I have 8 ounce packets, I up the maltodextrin by another 4 ounces. I usually only add this combo only to a light Pilsen, wheat or lager with little body/ABV% from a recipe kit. and when I brew a higher ABV% beer I usually don't add either or may just kick it more with the dextrose for additional fermentable. So hotrod u will be fine with what u have, if for any reason that u may lose the mouthfeel of a beer go ahead and kick up the maltodextrin another 4 oz.
