Beer Recipes / Request: Left Hand Snowbound clone recipe
« on: November 07, 2012, 10:22:51 AM »
This was my grandfathers favorite beer. I would like to be able to replicate it for him with an extract batch of homebrew. If anyone could provide me a clone recipe or something extremely close, I would be forever indebted to them! Thank you all for looking and helping!

one fermentation bucket, a plastic carboy, and a bottling bucket (with a spigot).

sounds to me like you can start at least two beers 8)

+1

and I would recommend it as well, homebrew goes fast!


how would i do two beers? wouldn't my first ferment always be in the bucket or would I just do a first fermentation in the carboy?

www.howtobrew.com ( also get the book )

Most likely the kit has the plastic carboy for doing a secondary, which most here will probably say is not necessary most of the time.  Do your primary fermentation in the bucket, then rack (transfer) your beer to the bottling bucket with your priming sugar and bottle.
So is there any recipes that it is needed? what would the secondary do for it? When would I know to move it to the secondary? thanks a lot for the quick responses!

General Homebrew Discussion / New to brewing, a few questions
« on: January 09, 2012, 02:41:24 PM »
My girlfriend got me a brewing kit for Christmas. I have read a few guides, including the zymergy magazine. The main question I have is that the kit she got me has one fermentation bucket, a plastic carboy, and a bottling bucket (with a spigot). All of the beginner guides I have read (including the magazine) only have a one fermentation bucket description on how to brew. My questions are, when do i know when to transfer the beer to the plastic carboy? Is this plastic carboy transfer only going to improve clarity? Also if there are any very detailed begging guides I have passed up, I would be greatly appreciated for links or book names. Thank you for reading this, and CHEERS!
