All Grain Brewing / Pliny the Elder Clone Recipe
« on: April 06, 2010, 04:41:56 AM »
what's up y'all-

I'm super stoked, as i just ordered from Austin Homebrew Supply a clone of this most stupendous, splendiferous (sp?) DIPA.

My question is whether anyone has any feedback about this clone recipe, and whether it's possible, short of selling one's soul, to come close to replicating this beer?



All Grain Brewing / Astringency Question
« on: April 03, 2010, 02:25:33 AM »
Hi Y'all-

I've noticed some recent batches have what i perceive to be an astringent quality to it, and i'm analyzing my processes to pinpoint the reason.

I mash using a 10-gallon Rubbermaid cooler with a false bottom. Almost in 75% of batches, the mash gets stuck, and i usually have to transfer the mash to another vessel, clear the clog, and transfer again, and begin the lautering process over.

During the process, the grains get agitated quite significantly and it's very time consuming when it happens. So, i'm wondering whether these two factors may contribute to the astringency, as the agitation of grain may be extracting tanins from the husks, as well as a rising PH due to the additional time the grains are in the mash tun.

Any light that can be shed on this by anyone would be most appreciated, and suggestion certainly welcome..

Happy Brewing!
