All Grain Brewing / Re: First all grain brew

I see that some recipes all for 1.25 qt/lb of grain, and some call for 1.5 qt./lb.
Is there a table or literature about the correct ratio to use when doing all grain?

^^^^
If it's a simple, straight braid in a cooler, then batch sparge is for you!  Go to the main AHA site (click that medallion at the top left of your screen, you know) and from the menu pick how to brew > tutorials and there's one on batch sparge brewing.


Okay!
I'll read through that again. I'll print it off so we both can get the procedure down.

What kind of mash tun did you build? The fly versus batch decision may already be made.


We converted a picnic cooler into a mash tun.

When do you do a batch sparge?
A fly sparge?

Does it depend on the recipe?

Hi all!


We're ready to take the leap to all grain brewing, and we're stoked about this!
We finished the mach tun, and might be ready to brew soon.
We want to try either a Yeungling Amber clone (haven't seen a recipe yet), or a German Wheat beer.
I've gone through some recipes on brewers friend, and I'm having trouble understanding the recipes and procedures.


Could someone help me out?

I've got it covered. Went and bought a SS one, was just curious about the one I originally bought.


Are they easy to clean?


What about trub/buildup in and on it?

It has no strength. You'll need to obtain real stainless steel hose braid if that's the approach you intend to use.
Because of the heat?

We're making the leap to All grain.


We're building a mash tun, I only paid attention to getting a lead free flexible water connector.
I didn't pay attention to whether it was stainless, its a polymer braided flexible connector.


Should I ditch it and buy a stainless one?

What does the sulfite do?
Doesn't that stop the fermentation?

Our mead is in a 6.5 gal primary.
We're going to take a sample and taste test it. We don't want a dry mead.
We'll probably do 1 gallon with fruit, and transfer the remainder into a 5 gal. secondary.

We're getting ready to touch the mead, after about 5 months of being in the primary fermenter.
We're stoked to see what has been sitting there bubbling quietly.


Can we turn some of the mead into a melomel, or is that what we needed to do when we first made it?
Can we transfer to secondary and add the fruit and wait some more, or do you think its too late?

All Grain Brewing / Sours
« on: July 11, 2018, 01:01:17 AM »
My brew partner and I are about to start back up brewing after a 2 month hiatus.
He said he wanted to try to brew a sour beer.


I've taken a look at recipe kits, and they're around $70-$90.
And the overall time length is incredible, around a year or so.


What do we need to know before venturing into this new beer style?

Use it as the liquid in your smoker pan for smoking meats.
Interesting, if it had flavor...

Drink it, dump it, or gift it.
I would never gift this beer, even to my uncle!

All Grain Brewing / What to do?
« on: June 18, 2018, 05:45:16 AM »
I have 44 beers of a horrid beer I made.
A honey wheat that has no taste, it’s over carbonated. It has no taste.
What can I do with this?
