  1. I have US-05 and S-04. I like ales. Not a big hop head. I am more of a balanced and malty beer lover.
  2. I have at my disposal 3 bags of Briess extra light DME. 1/2 a bag of sweet orange peel. Amarillo, cascade, Warrior, Glacier, Centennial, Willamette and Us Goldings Hops. This batch will have no MRBeer products in it. Any Suggestions?

  4. It has been in the bottle carbing for two weeks. I could not stand it. I put the trub bottle of the Tripel and double brown in the fridge this morning. I made both straight up. I just had the tripel and it was freaking awesome. I will try the double brown later. I plan on letting both beers warm condition for a while and the I will have another taste. The tripel packed a little bit of a punch. I am very impressed so far.
  5. Keep us posted. I am considering this one for the pipeline soon.
  6. Go for it, but I would not use the booster.

Next time you're in WalMart, go to the housewares section (I know, but do it anyway). Buy one of the 2.5 gallon slimlines. They run about $6 or $7. Use that for batch priming and now you've got an extra fermenter. If used as a fermenter how are you venting the slim line!

  9. Got my fingers crossed . It is churning like a son of a gun in the fermenter. Very vigorous.
  10. Brewed up my mystery white powder test batch ADIPA with no adjuncts. I substituted Safale US-05 for MRBEER yeast. The MRBEER yeast went into the boil for yeast nutrient on both batches. All went well. Brewed up my Sweet Orange Witbier. It was my first time using DME. I was pinched up tighter than a snare drum waiting for the inevitable boil over. I managed to make it through the hot break without a mishap, I was watching it like a hawk. Along with the 1 lb Bavarian wheat DME I used Whispering Wheat Weizenbier HME, Golden Wheat UME, Coriander, Sweet orange peels and US Goldings hops, Safebrew WB-06 ale yeast. I was spot on on my OG. Smelled awesome and tasted great. Long day but a fun one. :woohoo:
  11. If it is for my consumption the color being a little off dose not bother me.
  12. I think one of the selling points of this yeast is low diacetyl production.
  13. You can try Big Lots store if you have one in your area, when it is time for a bigger pot. They have stainless steel from 20 quarts down, with a glass top. I bought a 16 quart the other day for a very reasonable price.
  14. Ha, now I have to clean beer of my monitor now. :laugh:

  16. If it has a rancid taste I would probably get rid of it.

Plus it works really good and I get to say it's my design. :drinking: Tabasco, Thank you for taking the time to post such a well articulated post about brewing in a bag,. I've just recently stepped up to brewing recipes with steeping grains and DME. By reading your post I feel like I can tackle BIAB relatively easy now. I would also like to see a thread on this.
