  1. Hello All, I plan to brew a five gallon batch of wheat beer from Muntons hopped wheat extract, and 3lbs of wheat LME. Question is what grain should i steep and how many pounds. Thanks for your attention. TonyK
  2. im sorry, I forgot to mention this is for a 6 gallon batch
  3. Hello All, I just received as a gift. A 3.75lb can of Coopers Real Ale extract. Question is this, how much light DME should I use to produce a nice drinkable brew. Thanks for your attention. Regards, TonyK
  4. Originally from Hollidaysburg, just outside of Altoona. Blair County. Now living in Maryland. But have many nice memories of Pa. Thanks for your attention. TonyK
  5. Hello All, I have a friend who is of the opinion that good beer can be produced from extract, if the hops rather than the malt extract are boiled. He brews five gallon batches the following way. He brings one gallon of water to a boil than adds the flavoring hops, 20 minutes later he adds the aroma hops for the final ten minutes of the boil for a total of 30 minutes. He then takes pot off stove and adds liquid extract and DME, he stirs well. Then pours into fermenter. tops up with cold water to the five gallon mark. Checks temp, then pitches yeast. Then ferments and bottles in the usual manner. I would appreciate your input before I try this method. Thanks for your attention. Happy Thanksgiving, TonyK
  6. Have any of you brewers tried the Coopers Kits? They are said to produce six gallon batches. My local brewing supply store has just started to stock this line of kits. Thanks for your attention. TonyK
  7. I use distilled water with starsan. I have reused it through three or sometimes four brewings. Thanks for your attention. TonyK
  8. Another querry. Using mostly MRB extracts for brewing. Do any of you feel that racking to a secondary is worth the extra effort. I understand that this procedure may clarify the finished product a bit. But most of my batches fine with me using only the single fermenter. Once again thanks for your attention. TonyK
  9. Have any of you fellow brewers ever tried to brew in a turkey fryer. I noticed a set up at Sams Club for appx $70. Seems to me that this might be a good answer to 5 gallon boils. Thanks for your attention. TonyK
  10. Rolling Rock, brewery in western Pa. used to bottle in small bottles. (Pony Bottles) I believe they contained about 8oz. I dont know if they still use these still small bottles for their product. Thanks for your attention. TonyK
  11. Never had a problem with taste after using star san. Thanks for your attention. TonyK
  12. I have used Star San for last two years with no problems. Thanks for your attention. TonyK
  13. I have used the MRB PET 1 Litre bottles for almost three years.They have served me well. I have changed the caps after 2 years usage. Thanks for your attention. TonyK
