Yeast and Fermentation / 1st time using liquid yeast
« on: February 15, 2012, 05:35:50 PM »
So my local homebrew store was out of dry yeast, so i bought some liquid yeast (English ale strain) . this will be my second attempt at homebrewing, i will be making a milk (sweet) stout using a extract recipe i have read/heard that i need to use a starter batch with liquid yeast, however, i'm not sure how to do starter batch? Can i just pitch the yeast into the primary fermenter and go from there or do i need to use a starter?

General Homebrew Discussion / becoming a beer judge
« on: February 12, 2012, 11:19:28 PM »
So seeing as I'm newbie to the home brew scene, i was wondering if there were any classes programs to become a judge or at least a class to become a better beer taster? I know about the BJCP, but i was wondering if anybody know of cheaper or free classes (either online or in-person). I'm not necessarily looking to become an official judge but I'm not totally against it either.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Milk stout recipe
« on: February 08, 2012, 02:10:26 AM »
So I just bottled my first ever attempt at home-brewing a pretty good red ale, and I was thinking about starting my second beer. I was thinking of doing a milk stout, but i haven't seen a extract recipe and for that matter a solid non-extract recipe. I really like Left Hand's milk stout. Does anybody have good extract or even partial mash recipe?

General Homebrew Discussion / alternative wort cooling equipment
« on: January 20, 2012, 11:56:02 PM »
I'm about to start my second batch of beer and was wondering if sing dry ice to cool down the wort would work? I know that some home wine-makers use it. Last i took advantage of cold weather. I really don't want to pay for a wort chiller or run all the water required to use one. I appreciate any and all suggestions
