    Upcoming Brewing Schedule

    Inserted data for 5 gallon recipe into a spreadsheet, then calculated for any size. Once I learn the variables/data-sets, I will become a Beersmith.

    Upcoming Brewing Schedule

    https://learn.kegerator.com/recipe-cascade-smash-pale-ale/ Using Nottingham yeast instead. This yeast seems to be the perfect ale yeast for my basement environment. Checked two All Grain LBK's yesterday and both were 57 degrees.
  5. Gas burner in the basement is not feasible. Is there an electric, Induction or Infra-Red burner that can be used ? Does anyone have one ? Use one ?

    Electric, Induction, Infra-Red ?

    @Cato Thanks, already thought of that. There's a basement window close by, and with a fan it should work. For now sticking with and learning All Grain. Using a 16 qt (4 Gallon) pot, which is the largest feasibly possible in kitchen. Researching possible setups for larger batches, which will require other equipment/processes. Only using Malt, Hops, Water & Yeast for beer. Goal is to brew what I call "Nectar of the Gods", and if/when that happens, larger batches will follow.

    Thanks. @Cato@Creeps McLane Walmart SS pot isn't magnetic, magnet would not stick to it. It was discovered while researching online that there is magnetic, and non-magnetic SS. Basement has a 240V 20A outlet, and also a sink. However, wouldn't pump that much water into septic system. Maybe ice water in sink, and pump & recirculate through that ?

    My basement has both 120 & 220. Previous owner of home was tool & die maker. Tons of 120 & 220 outlets in garage & basement. Not sure if my cheap SS Walmart pot is induction capable. And exactly what does induction capable mean anyway ?

    Clips for grain bag, good idea. What wattage is your induction burner ? How do you chill your wort ? Thanks
  10. A partial mash recipe uses 3 pounds Golden Light DME. Specs on Golden Light DME= 99% Base Malt and 1% Carapils Malt. What would be the all grain conversion ? My best guess is 5 pounds of all grain equals 3 pounds DME ? What are they referring to, "Base Malt" ? Thanks

    DME to All grain conversion

    First time using 16qt pot with full volume boil and hop schedule. Used 2qt water for 8oz grain steep for 25 minutes. Used all the stuff I've learned online, and from you guys/gals, so much to know. Process is getting more involved, attention to details. First test batch using Nottingham yeast. Will ferment a little over 3 weeks at 59 degrees in basement. Getting ready for first all grain mid next week. Picture is citra hops awaiting their fate.

    Calculating boil off rate, and grain absorption, is to end up with whole volume being brewed. What would be the benefit ? Instead of adding more water to volume before fermenting.

    DME to All grain conversion

    Not sure yet, maybe. I may be able to do a 4-5 gallon batch with it, and add water later to volume like the Mr Beer kits. Currently I'm venturing into uncharted territory and only doing 2 gallon test batches. Testing various methods, yeasts. grains, and hops to see what works for me before rolling out to larger batches.

    Good stuff, thanks everyone. Happen to be at Walmart today and picked this up as suggested. $11.94

    Great, thanks all, good stuff. Going to slowly ease into it, but "All Grain" here I come.

    DME to All grain conversion

    Was it just for the color ? Or, pale malt DP of 85, and 2 row malt DP of 140, averages to a diastatic power of 112. Was this taken into consideration at all ? Thanks

    DME to All grain conversion

    Thanks. I am misunderstood with base malt , probably because I asked poorly. 99% Base Malt is listed for Briess Golden Light DME. http://www.brewingwithbriess.com/Assets/PDFs/Briess_PISB_CBWGoldenLightDME.pdf Which base malt are they referring to ? Thank You

    I'll cut to the chase, How would someone do this recipe with "All Grain" https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2785/6868/t/3/assets/ZombieDirt2Gallon-1527037377775.pdf?10192803001442395523 Thanks

    Base Malts Base malts make up the majority of the grist in all-grain beer, and the variety is, frankly, astounding. Named based on the formation of corns on the barley stalk (2-row vs. 6-row), the variety (e.g., Maris Otter, Golden Promise, etc), or the region in which it was grown or malted. Includes: Barley malts: pale malt, Pilsner malt, Vienna malt, Munich malt, mild ale malt, and more Non-barley base malts like wheat malt and rye malt (more on these in "Other Malts") High-kilned malts: responsible for the dark, malty lagers of Europe and have also found a home in some ales because of their unique character. Munich and Vienna malts are the prime examples American base malt is generally mild and fairly neutral; British malts tend to be maltier, bready, and biscuit-like. The European climate gives malts made from Continental barley a clean, "elegant" character. Pilsner malt has a soft, delicate maltiness that practically defines pale lagers. "High-kilned" (heated to a higher temperature at the end of the malting process) base are rof high-kilned malts, although mild ale malt belongs to this category too. The darker color lends these malts a more toasty, malty flavor than you get from lighter base malts. https://www.jaysbrewing.com/2011/11/17/lazy-chart-for-converting-dme-lme-grain/

    Jdub, thank you very much, my brewing hobby is renewed. Best beer I've made to date by far, and experiencing citra hops to the max. Below is your shared Zombie clone recipe.

    Hmm, good point, I better start mowing the back yard also ! On second thought, to help my chicken legs out, I'll ask my neighbors if they don't mind I mow their lawns.

    Don't Worry Be Hoppy

    Two more in the making, 1) Conditioning another zombie clone recipe that uses different malts, 2) Using that same recipe, with Nottingham yeast instead. SWMBO liked it, but too high in ABV, and too hoppy. If more water is added to pass the 2 gallon mark on the "Mr Beer LBK" it might be a Zombie Light she will like. If SWMBO likes it, and commend her on the beer modifications, it might be sky's the limit on new brewing equipment. Once she mowed the back yard years ago, and was commended on how sexy & shapely her legs were getting from mowing the lawn. She laughed, said it was only to get her to mow the back, shes mowed it ever since. I still mow the front yard, but now with a really good mower.

    The recipe above I used Caramel 60 & Carapils malt. Have another conditioning that uses English Medium Crystal & Carapils malt. 8 hours ago, Stevo0083 said: Where is the shared recipe? Looks great
