  1. Hey guys, I'm looking to brew a 5 gallon extract brew. I'm not looking to do anything crazy with this one..just something that's going to be very drinkable on a hot summer day I'm thinking along the lines of blue moon, but I'm not all that worried about style. Any ideas for an easy to drink summer time brew recipe?
  2. D Train, I brewed your Oatmeal Stout recipe a few months back and was very impressed it..now it's time to brew an IPA, and i think the "No Coast American IPA" sounds really good...how does this compare to some of your other IPA recipes? I'm looking for something that isn't "too hoppy", and is about 4.5%-6% I'm still new to all grain, so i can't always tell one recipe from another..any comments about your IPAs? Anyone else is welcome to chime in too!
  3. D-Rock's AG oatmeal stout recipe came out awesome! I am beyond happy with the taste..it is better than any partial mash or Mr. Beer recipe I have made so far, which is obviously what i was going for.. My only disappointment: HEAD RETENTION..or lack thereof. When I think of an oatmeal stout, I think, rich, creamy head..that is definitely not there...what did I do wrong, or what can I do different next time? If you like oatmeal stouts, give this recipe a try..it really wasn't that difficult to make, just took all day, but that could have been because of the many beers consumed in the process....
  4. We will definitely let these age! Since we split the batch and it will go fast, my buddy and I are planning on making this recipe again in a few weeks. I have a few cans of pumpkin and we talked about possibly making a pumpkin stout based off your oatmeal stout recipe. Have you ever brewed anything like this before? Does this sound like a bad idea? Would the pumpkin (one can i'm assuming) just be added to the boil...let me know your thoughts on this. I'm also guessing that more hops would be needed to balance out the pumpkin.
  5. tasted the oatmeal stout at bottling...awesome! if it tasted that good warm and uncarbonated, i can't wait to taste it again in about 3-4 weeks..thanks for the great recipe!
  6. i will be bottling the oatmeal stout at the end of the week(not sure which day yet)..for a total of 17-20 days in the fermenter. i am splitting the batch with my buddy..we will be using cane sugar for most of the priming. we will be trying malt extract and corn sugar for a few bottles. d-rock, have you tasted this one yet?
  7. sounds good..thanks a lot man..i'll keep everyone posted on how this one turns out.
  8. first all grain experience went well..more on that when i have more time... for now, an important question: i used the SafAle English Ale (DCL Yeast #S-04) yeast. I thought my fermenting temp would be a consistant 68 degrees and instead it's been more like a consistant 64-65 degrees. should i move the fermenter to somewhere a little warmer, or should i be ok at 64-65 with this yeast?
  9. thanks again..i'm sure i'll have a few more stupid questions before sunday haha.
  10. after two months from the original brew date, i just have to say.. MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT!..all i can taste is spice..and the beer is kind of thick or something.. its barely drinkable..will not be brewing again with spices for awhile, due to two disappointing brews
  11. thanks man.. my buddy and i will be making this oatmeal stout this weekend..he has done several 5 gallon partial mashes with much success..this will be both of our first all grain experience... all the ingredients were ordered today.. a couple more quick questions.. 1) what do you typically use to prime a stout? 2) i believe you are using mr. beer brew kegs..if so, how are you batch priming..i'm not familiar with your set-up i'm sure i'll have a few more as the week progresses..i'm pumped to try my hand at AG..thanks in advance for all of you help by the way..how good was this recipie? it seriously sounds so good to me.
  12. this oatmeal stout recipie sounds really good.. what temp did you ferment this at and for how long?
  13. i've searched and found a few on here..can anyone (d-rock?) hook me up with some good all grain recipies? prefered styles would be IPAs, stouts or any worthwhile clones. i'm not that picky on style. i'm looking to make mr. beer sized recipies, obviously. thanks.
