  1. Does anyone have experience using the Krausening Technique for carbonation ? https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/how-to-brew/exploring-the-german-technique-of-krausening/ https://moonshiners.club/beer-carbonation-primer-glucose-sugar-wort/
  2. After 2 weeks adding 16 oz lemongrass tea, 2 tablespoons dried lemongrass steeped for 10 min. Cooled to 80 degrees before adding to wort. Ferments an additional 2 weeks then bottled.
  3. I think "Sugar is Sugar" is a misleading statement. Correct me if I'm wrong, I believe the following is true. Carbonation Drops = 27% Glucose & 73% Sucrose Sugar Cane Plant = 50% Glucose & 50% Fructose https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/sugar-explained
  4. Changed to Caramel 120L before ordering today. This will be my 14th All Grain, thanks to you. Goal is to get a crisp hoppy taste, good malt character, mild bitterness, and a lower ABV. Don't dry hop anymore, here is the hop schedule. a. 60 min = .5 Centennial-Pellet b. 10 Min = .5 Citra-Cryo c. 05 Min = .5 Citra-Cryo d. Flame Out = 1 oz Citra-Cryo e. 120 Deg = 1 oz Citra-Cryo
  5. Created this to brew after Thai Wheat. 4 Gallon 4 lb 2-Row 2 lb White Wheat 1 lb Red Wheat 1 lb Caramel 120L 3 oz Citra-Cryo .5 oz Centennial Not using Carapils anymore, don't like what it does to the beer. Wheat & Crystal malts are used instead.
  6. Thai Wheat up next, request by son-in-law 4 Gallon 4 lb Briess Organic 2-Row Malt 4 lb Rahr Red Wheat Malt 1 oz Sorachi Ace 2 oz Fresh Ginger 5 Kaffir Lime Leaves 2 Tablespoons Dried Lemongrass (makes 16 oz tea)

  8. Looks good to me, let it roll. Small scale is a great method to learn all grain. I'm about to brew a 12th all grain. Every all grain batch so far, a process has either been modified, added, or removed as more is learned. ABV is yet another variable, can be too low or too high. https://www.brewersfriend.com/allgrain-ogfg/
  9. https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/cocoa-powder-nutrition-benefits Good beer and dark chocolate are also enjoyed. I enjoy beer before dinner and during, would be up alI-night having chocolate anything. Speaking of cocoa, can't wait until this is released-
  10. Thanks , I know that you would use 1/2 the amount of cryo vs pellet. The cryo hops are much more expensive, but not if you factor that you use 1/2. I think 175 degrees whirlpool was for pellet, and 120 was for cryo.
  11. In case you have extra figs https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2011/11/grilling-figs-stuffed-with-goat-cheese-recipe.html
  12. @Jdub@RickBeer Gonna try cryo hop whirlpool @ 120 degrees, that may give an acceptable level of hoppyness.
  13. Third all grain brew was first SMaSH recipe, first time using pale ale malt, and first time mashing correctly at 151. Beers malt is tasty, beer itself is very crisp and clean, but lacks a notable hop presence. This batch was 4 pounds grain for 2 gallons, prior two were 5 1/2 pounds grain per 2 gallons, ABV too high on those. Slowly getting away from ever opening the fermenter, don't like dry hopping, and will also try that cryo whirlpool at 120. I would like a set it and forget it fermenter, and will do any extra processes to make that happen. side note, using 22 oz glass bottles, and saving three bottles per batch to age.
