All Grain Brewing / Re: Specific gravity issue...Dump or Keep?
« on: March 25, 2012, 07:51:21 AM »
Am I understanding that you collected 2 gallons of wort, topped to 3 gallons for the boil, then did a 5 gallon batch? Does that mean you topped with another 3 gallons of water in the fermenter?

« on: March 24, 2012, 07:33:09 AM »
Is it true a thick mash produces a fuller bodied beer? If so what would be considered a thick mash?

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Buying Beer

I have found myself buying beer for research as I delve into producing better beer. I choose a style and then select a few different commercial beers to sample that characterize it.........it's the best homework I've ever had to do!

That was the reason I bought the six packs of red ale. Red Ale is my favorite style and I have been tweaking and perfecting mine since I started brewing. And I must say...I actually liked mine better than the Sam Adams or the Odell's. I think I am "there" with that particular style.

I hadn't bought any beer in several months. Last month I bought a 6 of Sam Adams Red Ale, a 6 of Odell's Red ale, and a 6 of Sam Adams Alpine Spring...the tab came to $28. I thought "geeze I could have had 50 beers for less than that". I don't think I will be buying beer other than my 2 pints when I go out anymore.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: grassy flavors and dry hopping
« on: March 21, 2012, 07:21:53 AM »
I routinely use 2 ounces of fuggels to dry hop my red ales. I have never gotten grassy flavors from that. So it will definitely take more than that. I am going to take a stab at 3 to 4 ounces.

Does this compromise the security of your computer?

I don't get that on my Android. And the main website is difficult to navigate on my phone as well.

Is there any thoughts on AHA setting up a mobile website?

I have a question. Why not just boil longer to get more of the water out instead of freezing and skimming?

Correct hokerer. And the hops I use will be for bittering only. I want this to be a malty beer.

Thankyou for the replies. How does this sound? Using odds and ends around the house, 9 lbs Munich, 1/2 pound caramunich, thick mash at around 154. For hops on hand I have mt hood, and chinook. I am thinking chinook? For yeast I have 04 or Nottingham. I am thinking the nottingham will attenuate too much, so S 04?

Beer Recipes / Munich malt question
« on: March 14, 2012, 08:05:26 AM »
I have 9 pounds of munich malt. I would like to do a recipe that is heavy in this grain so I can get a good feel for exactly what it tastes like. Any suggestions? Is it an ok grain for a one grain beer?

Some of my favorite beer styles are Octoberfest (though I don't do lagars), Amber Ales, and Altbiers.
