Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / What could have happened?
« on: April 22, 2011, 08:21:50 AM »
I brewed my third batch, an amber. Tasted it after the specific gravity check it was on target and tasted good :), transfered from primary to secondary for 7 days checked specific gravity before bottling. Tasted it again and it had no taste at all >:(, specific gravities where within spec so I bottled to see what will happen, in 10 more days I will find out. What could have happened? What could I have messed up? ???

I wouldn't try a lager for my first several batches, but maybe you could do a lager-like ale, like a cream ale, with that extract... Something 100% that DME up to about 1.048 and fermented with US-05 (with about 20 IBU worth of a neutral noble-type like Magnum or Mt. Hood at 60 min) would probably do the trick.

I plan on it being an ale, about 1.050 and ferment with Wyeast American Liquid Ale Yeast #1056, and Cascade at 60, 15, and 0.
I look forward to trying a lager as I grew up in Pottsville PA and drank Yuengling and like lagers.

Has anyone used this, a buddy ask me to make a beer akin to bud or miller in color. Would this work? Is there anything special to do because of the rice? This is only my 4th batch and I am making for someone so I don't want to screw it up.

Alright!  Welcome to the forum Popeye.  You're my childhood hero.  I live by your motto: "I yam what I yam."
I know you eat spinach.  What kind of beer do you drink?


Thank you all!
