All Grain Brewing / creating crystal malt at home
« on: September 20, 2014, 02:33:38 PM »
I am wondering if anyone has made dark crystal at home. I found an article on making it at home and does not seem hard at all. My goal is to make it close to the german Rostmalz that is in Jamil's traditional bock, which is a dark crystal at about 200L. Here is the link if anyone would like to do it.

What does everyone think about it?

All Grain Brewing / Traditional Bock Rostmalz replacement
« on: July 16, 2011, 11:54:29 AM »
 am going to be brewing sometime a traditonal bock from Jamils book. I know he has rostmalz from germany in it. I know we cannot get it. What would be a good carmel malt to use in place of it. I am thinking 120L but I am not sure if it is dark carmalized enough.

Any suggestions.

Thanks

General Homebrew Discussion / Toasting an oak dowel for flanders red
« on: March 28, 2011, 02:54:40 PM »
I got some white oak dowels for a flanders red, but I can't seem to find out how to get a medium toast on my white oak.  I know I should put it in the oven for a certain amount of time at a certain temp, but I googled and can't find it.  Has anyone done this and how to toast it, it would be appreciated.

Thanks

Yeast and Fermentation / Low yeast for Hefe weizen
« on: March 26, 2011, 05:17:24 PM »
I read that for a WLP300 hefeweizen ale yeast is to pitch a little low but enough yeast to stress it for the aromas of a weizen yeast.  Has anyone tried this and to know how much is low to do that.  I figured for my volume since I have a fresh vial that if not a weizen but an ale I would pitch 1000ml. 

Any suggestions would be nice.

Thanks

Erik
