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

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, 06:27:09 AM »
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)

2308

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

Recipe guidelines according to Narziss, who is basically the German Jesus.

Festbier - OG 13.5 Plato
60-80% Pilsner malt at 3.5 EBC
0-30% Vienna malt at 8 EBC
0-30% Munich malt at 15 EBC
0-5% caramel malt at 25 EBC (Carahell)
20-24 IBUs

My fest this year is 60% pils, 30% Vienna and 10% carahell

I really like this type of guideline.  Not a specific recipe, but an outline.  Is this from Abriss der Bierbrauerei, Die Technologie der Malzbereitung, Die Technologie der Würzebereitung, or something else?  Does he cover all German styles with this type of structure? 

  "If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world."

I agree. Gave me a solid starting point from the start. All the recipes i have seen are all over the board.

Just for my own clarification, Festbier and Marzen are different styles right?
