Kegging and Bottling / Re: Bottling in tropical country

Hi guys,

Tropical country brewer here (Brazil). I will say by experience, I wouldn’t bother the temperature your bottles will be stored. Just be sure that you reached final fermentation (3 equal consecutive gravity readings on different days).

After primary fermentation, and secondary fermentation, all the flavours have formed. It is not 5 grams of sugar per litre that would mess with your beer. Be sure to store away of direct sun light and your beer will be good.

Hi guys,

I read Terry Foster’s book and reduced the grist to Pale, Crystal (dark shade) and chocolate malts.

However, I tried to brew the first recipe, and it gone bad. The cacao nibs clogged my spigot inside the pot. I believe they were to light to add loose on the boil.

I’m gonna try another batch this week. Thank you for all the help.

I’ll come back with some update.

Cheers

Hi guys,

I’m trying to formulate my first Porter, and I would like some opinions on that. I pretend to brew this recipe sometime next week.



Cheers

I'd say either get rid of or cut back on the aromatic.  I'd also recommend that all your flavorings (raspberries, nibs, vanilla bean) go in post primary.


So, i removed all the aromatic, and maintained the OG with pale malt.

About the flavourings, everything is going post primary, except the raspberry that should enter on the last couple of days of the primary. Just so the yeasts souls attenuate it with a more vitality and cell suspension.

Thanks for the tip, mate.

Cheers
