  1. Yes- If you want you can add lime zest into your fermenter to add some lime flavor but just the zest .The white part of any citrus fruit will impart a very bitter taste and you do not want any part of that in your beer. Zesting is very easy, use a very fine grater or a zester and you should slightly press ( or roll) the lime prior to zesting ( to release the natural oils) rotate the lime across the zester being careful not to zest the white part ( again BITTER). Put in a hop sack and add to your fermenter either after you have added your wort or as a "late addition" after 7 days of fermenting.Good luck and keep us posted as to what you did and how it came out .
  2. Couldn't resist.Just had to crack open on of my "samplers" .It's only been in the bottle for 1 week but man is it good !! Nice n' stout and a slight chocolate/coffee flavor on the tail end.Winner, Winner Corned Beef & Cabbage dinner !!
  3. Will do.I can't wait for this to condition out.But patients is a key to any good brew.
  4. Bottling Day has arrived and another taste test and it is a very very good "Brown Ale" !! Nice nut brown color and the taste ? Very good nice smooth flavor with a very slight Hoppiness to it in the finish.Overall I'd say it's a winner !!
  5. Bottling Day is here !! Another taste test before I bottled and man.Nice & Stout .Slight chocolate flavor and a strong stoutness to it.I am really going to be enjoying my St. Patrick's Day this year !!
  6. After 7 days fermenting-I had a little taste test today and man is it good!!!
  7. Cool- I did a AG BIAB "Liberty Cream Ale" and it's great !!
  8. Yes it is !! -In the "Cooling " stage right now and the smell is AWESOME !!. Can't wait for this one to "finish out" -Should be a "winner" in my book !!!
  9. That's what I'm shooting for.Hope it turns out well.Still have about 25 minutes on the boil.My apartment really smells good right about now !!
  10. Been wanting to brew up a brown ale for a while and now seems like the perfect time to do it.I named it "Elsie's Brown Ale" after my dog ( who has little brown "tick" markings on her) The recipe is really quite simple: 11 lbs Domestic 2 row 12 oz. Caramel 80 4 oz Special B 4 oz Chocolate Malt 1 oz Cascade hops ( goes in at start of 60 minute boil) 1 oz Fuggle hops ( goes in at 5 minutes left in boil) 1 packet of Munton's Quality Dry Brewing Yeast Can't be too much more simple than that .Cheers!!
  11. You should be good to go .The Dubliner is a great brew.I started with that and then moved up to AG 5 gallon batches.This particular recipe is one of my "house" regulars !If your going to do the Dubliner then you should steep 2 cups of Oatmeal for the water for your Dubliner.It will be a "plus" in my book and you'll love the outcome!! Think Oatmeal Irish Stout and you'll have a winner !!
  12. Here it is .Just in time for St. Patrick's Day .My 5 gallon Batch Of an Oatmeal Irish Stout: 2 cups Oatmeal ( NOT instant) 2 cups Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal 9 lbs. Domestic 2 row 8 oz. Chocolate Malt 8 oz. Caramel 10L 8 oz. Roasted Barley 4 oz. Flaked Barley 1/2 oz. Nugget hops ( at START of 60 minute boil) 1 tsp. Gypsum ( at START of 60 minute boil) 1 oz. Willamette Hops ( added at 10 minutes left in 60 minute boil) 1 packet Munton's Active Brewing Dry Yeast. That's it .Can't be much more simple than that.Brew some up this weekend and you'll be enjoying St. Patrick's Day like me !!SLAINTE !! Last years batch of Oatmeal Irish Stout,Corned Beef & Cabbage & A shot of Bushmills Irish Whiskey ( 18 year old )
  13. I always cold crash the LBK and then when bottling I use a funnel with some drain screens in it to filter" out any trub/whatnot seems to work fine without too many problems and it filters rather well !!
  14. Anytime I "include" oats in anything ( mostly Oatmeal Stouts and I use ONLY steel cut Irish Oats) I always grain bag them and steep them separately in about 2 cups water and then add that water to your boil ( I've also just "added" it to the LBK).Works wonders for stouts !!
  15. Welcome.Keep us posted as to how your first turns out !!
