Oh, one little mention of botulism and y'all go running like little girls.  :P ;)

You won't have to tell me twice. :o


I agree with gsandel on pretty much everything he said. I would just buy 2 batches of yeast and pitch a packet in each beer.

Also, as a person who started homebrewing not too long ago, I would recommend making 5 gallon batches if you can for a while, until you get your pipeline going. At 5 gallons, it took me 4 batches in 4 weeks to get to the point where I had enough beer in the pipeline that I could drop down to 1-2 brews a month. Obviously this depends on how much you drink, and how much your friends start drinking once they realize you make good beer.

I am throwing out a guess here, but since I can't think of a hefeweizen that is much higher than 1.060, I would guess you still have sanitary wort, and I would follow big chicken's advice and throw a pack of WB-06 or another cheap dry yeast in the wort. Worst case, you lost a few more dollars and best case, you have a drinkable beer.

+1 on buying how to brew
+1 on keep trying, you will get it eventually

FYI, I hear there is a type of bacteria that is added white wine bbls that produces a malolactic acid IIRC correctly.  I recently added some very dry saison to some white wine bbls and the beer did continue to ferment in the bbls. I have no idea how accurate this info is. I tried to do some Internet research but could not find anything.

I cannot confirm this, but I do know that in cider making, (and possibly in white wine making) malo-lactic bacteria are added after fermentation to convert malic acid present in apples to lactic acid. I would guess this is what you are referring to.

looking at your edited recipe, I would add a 1/4lb of medium crystal (55-65) and cut the roast barley back to 1/2 to 3/4 lb.

Oats or flaked barley would be nice, but they don't really work in a extract + Steeping grains environment.

When you say UK Stout, I am not quite sure what you mean, but this doesn't look like the grain bill for a stout. It looks like it would make a pretty decent Southern English Brown, or maybe a brown porter, but you are going to need either Black Malt or Roast Barley if you want a good stout.

I would take that and add 8-12 oz of roasted barley, and probably cut out the crystal. I think it still might be a bit big for a stout, but it is a starting point. Most stouts I have had are in the 1.045-1.060 range.
