My weissbier should be done fermenting this I am thinking roggenbier with that nice yeast cake of WY3333.  Unfortunately, I am out of rice hulls.

Although I usually tell people that they probably don't need rice hulls, I think a roggen would be one where I'd recommend the opposite.  Have you got a recipe together for it, chumley?

400 batches? Done any good ones yet? :P

A couple were drinkable.  You?  ;)

Yup, same experiences.  Just checking.

In my latest version, rather than going all Munich, I did about 80% Munich and 20% Special Aromatic.  To me that malt has a lot of the qualities of Vienna.

Batch #400 this weekend...still finalizing the recipe.

Do they have a bar, within the brewery, that's open at night?

They have a tasting room open during the day.  No actual "bar".

How do you adjust the hops compared with a 2-row/pale-based version?  Or do you just like the balance with the increased malt flavors?

I don't try to translate a pale malt version to a Munich version.  I just formulate the recipe differently.  I will usually choose a more "biting" hop, like Chinook to "break through" the increased maltiness.  I might look at upping my BU:GU ratio a bit, also.

I wanted to bump this since we seem to have a lot of new people here.  If you include your location in your signature, it helps when you ask a question in case there's someone near you who might be able to help out.

Personally, I would disagree.  I like the flavor from some crystal malt.  IMO, an IIPA should also include some sugar to drop the FG and distinguish the beer from an Am. BW.

Denny - I may brew this recipe on Sunday.  I'm trying to get one last session in before child #3 arrives.

I've got a long list of bottling, kegging, brewing, etc. for the weekend, so we'll see.

If I get it brewed, I'll post back eventually on the results.


I'd love to heat what you think, Joe.

An all Munich AIPA is one of my favorites.

Will that product be available online?  Appears the website is saying June 4th.  I have used the D2 candi syrup and liked the product.  I made a Dubbel with it.

I really don't know what their retail plans are.  I'd advise you to contact them directly.  They're based in NC and have been very responsive and helpful for me.

Ingredients / Re: Pitching temperature

Jamil says pitch at ferment temps, and Chris White says it is ok to pitch warm and then cool to ferment temps. 

While it's always great to hear what the "experts" say, you should be guided by your own experience.  Based on that, I very much disagree with Chris White.

My rule is that when it tastes good, it's ready to drink.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Inconsistent gravity readings.

Personally, I would calculate the SG and go with that.  If it's an extract batch, the OG will be pretty close to whatever you calculate, even using steeping grains.

The best solution, if you you have the available space, is to have a small bar within the brewery and sell some good bar food to go with it. Only open at night, so it doesn't interfere with brewing, which is done during the day.

The successful breweries around (Ninkasi, for instance) brew at any time of day, not just during the day.
