Well-I have decided simply to try the partial mash approach first. I made a "mash tun" out of two gallon cooler. I am brewing right now. It was exciting to see how things work. I used 165 degree-5.5qts of water and added my 4lbs of grain-hit 154 degrees perfectly. It is now resting. I have made contact with another brewer here in town that makes 30 gallon all grain batches. I will met up with him next weekend. My homebrew shop will start carrying Wyeast 1450 so when I switch to all grain I will go with the Denny's Rye IPA. Here are the two articles that I used for where I am today. Thanks to all for your advice.
How long can you keep yeast in slants and how many steps are needed for a typical ale (1.050ish)? I read where Kai said using wire is okay to start with so I may give it a try if I can find some damn agar within 50 miles of me.
I also started with 7.5 gal turkey fryer.A 7.5 gallon kettle is (barely) big enough for 5 gallon batches.
As a10t2 pointed out it is big enough, just barely. Even though the margin of error
for using a 7.5 gal kettle is minuscule it is big enough. I made several batches with
one and successfully made the jump to AG. Go for it. You will just need to be diligent
with watching for boil overs.
Just don't use a high wattage halogen light.All I can say is WOW.
See this thread from the BN (hoping that hotlinking works)
This guys fridge is seriously messed up!
what kind of oil? mineral?It is on pump label.
Thirsty_Monk's recipe looks almost exactly like mine. I have used WLP-830, migh ttry 833 next time.I remember. That was the place that beer was cheaper then lemonade!
There is nothing better than an afternoon in the Gasse at Schlenkerla, getting the beer at the window, and talking to the locals.
People reported solvent like taste with over O2 beers (even when fermenting at proper temp).
So there can never be too much O2 present that the yeast won't use it all?
Yes they do have Dark Munich but it is 8.1 - 9.9LBy the way Wayermann does not have 15L Munich malt any more.
Where did you see that. Their website still lists Munich type I and II. Type II is the dark one.
