    Grape Extract?

    Anyone ever do anything interesting with grape brewer's extract? My son had gotten it for me as a gift a few months ago and I used it when bottling some or the standard Mr. Beer weissbier refill. Also combined it with blackberry extract to get a Blackberry Grape Wheat beer....but, not sure what to really expect! : ) Kevin
  2. Hi guys, I know the answer to this question is obvious, but I thought I'd check here just to be sure. It's my understanding that the specific gravity of all liquid malt extract -- regardless of the style -- is about 1.036. Hence, one pound of liquid malt extract added to one gallon of water yields 1.036 or 36 gravity points per pound per gallon. Dry malt extract is supposed to be about 1.042 or 42 gravity points per pound per gallon. Is this true for the cans of Mr. Beer liquid malt extract as well?
  3. Anyone have a good idea of how long brewer's fruit flavor extract stays good after opening? Kevin
  4. I decided to try making a hop extract after trying some Sierra Nevada "Hop Hunter" which utilized a steam collected hop extract. I put 1 oz. of Equinox hops in 750 ml of vodka and let it sit in the dark for 2.5 weeks. I would check on it and swirl it once every day or so. The result at the end was pretty startling. The aroma of the hops came out intensely. Equinox has a citrus aroma and to the blind nose the extract smells like orange juice. After straining into a brown bottle I poured myself a teaspoon of the chartreuse colored tincture and it was mouth-puckeringly bitter. So I have to say that this experiment worked out well. Now I just have to figure out how best to use it for a dry-hop replacement (most likely at bottling time). It should take only a small amount to work.

    2.5 weeks of Equinox hops in 750ml of vodka. Kept in the dark and shaken when I felt like it. Intense hop aroma and mouth puckering bitterness. I will use sparingly instead of my dry hop for my next batch
  6. I have heard it a few times about many of our brewers boiling the wort for some time. The Coopers brewery works really hard to make our Mr. Beer malt match certain characteristics and one of them is color. They have a proprietary water extraction process that uses minimal heat to minimize any color change. By boiling, you will be making the final product a bit darker than what we wanted the final product to be and muting the hop flavor some and killing the aroma completely (well almost.) In our basic refill instructions, we simply state to boil water first, then add the brewing extract. This will allow full dissolve of the malt solids that are contained in the brewing extract. With that said, many of our advanced brewers may CHOOSE to boil and that is what Mr. Beer is about. Choice. For new brewers that may not know about all things brewing, I just wanted to throw that tidbit of information out there. Ok, you advanced brew guys, fill in all the great details!
