I don't have my notes but I think my recent one went from 1.052 to 1.003 in about a week or less.

Not a lot, recipe (janet's brown)
has about 4% chocolate 350L and 8% crystal 40L.
Any thoughts on replacing the 6% wheat with chocolate rye?

Thanks guys.

I assume the wheat you are referring to is chocolate wheat? I love chocolate rye so I say go for it.

I normally shoot for a mash pH of 5.6 for brown ales but I brew on the malty spectrum of the style. Dark and bitter/hoppy are two things that usually don't go well (outside of wookey jack :'() together for me
No sir, the recipe says white wheat or pale wheat. Assuming the wheat in the recipe is for head retention and body I was thinking of the choc rye for; head retention, body and another dimension of roast/chocolate flavor.

Sounds good to me either way. That should up the roast character for sure.

Normally one stick of ceylon cinnamon is 1/2 tsp. I would use a little less because saigon cinnamon has a bolder flavor.

Thank you. So you would recommend using a little less than the equivalent of 1/2 tsp (1 stick) or just less than the equivalent of what I would normally use for ceylon?

Settled on:
73% Pilsner
20% Munich 6L
7% Carahell

My original idea was too similar to the grist of my last batch

Ingredients / cinnamon sticks vs. ground cinnamon
« on: September 01, 2017, 01:27:09 PM »
Doing a spiced holiday strong ale. I normally use crappy ground cinnamon at the end of the boil. I have some saigon cinnamon sticks which smell amazing in comparison. I normally go with about about 1 tsp of ground cinnamon in addition to other spices at the end of the boil. Any recommendations on how many cinnamon sticks to use in place of ground cinnamon?

I have dumped pureed fruit and/or zest straight into the fermenter after activity slows/stops many times without any special sanitation and without issues. Usually the present alcohol will help to protect the beer.

Made my first festbier last night.

1.055

75% Barke Pils
25% Floor Malted Bohemian Dark Malt (6.5L)

Looks good! I am really on the fence about what direction I am going to go.
