That's actually what I had in mind.  I think you should go for it...nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I've got a print copy that I've kept on my desk since I got it.  Would be a shame if they didn't let you download it.  I see you can print at least one page of a time of it, maybe print to PDF and recombine.  I'm hesitant to scan or do that and release it since it does have the typical "No part of this book may be reproduced..."



Thanks for the tip, James, and thanks for respecting their wishes.

I'd say it kinda depends on what yeast you were planning on using.  You might consider losing the CaraMunich and leaving everything else there.  But the yeast will make a big difference.

This is not intended to sound harsh, but put your ego aside and brew for fun.  You have an important job that you love.  You're not sure I want to run a business.  I ran my own business for nearly 30 years.  Loved the work part, but HATED running a business.  My advice is to keep brewing for a hobby.  You'll get the accolades from your friends, which is worth even more than accolades from customers.

I have an opinion about that, but it's not terribly kind. I would say contact them and say "People would love to have a download of this like they've had of your pdf for years!"

That may be what I do.  Maybe we should start a campaign!  Heck, I'd even pay (a reasonable amount) for it.  But it would be great if they looked at it as a sales tool and made it freely downloadable.

A great resource has gotten even better with the release of the new Hopunion variety databook.  I haven't figured out how to d/l it yet, but maybe one of you geniuses here can.  It's online at http://www.hopunion.com/17_HopVarietyHandbook.cfm?p3=open .

Yeah I was thinking no carapils. I personally don't put them in my brews

I use it sometimes.  It's just another tool and sometimes you need it, sometimes you don't.  With your recipe, start off with the basics and compare it to what you're going for.  If you don't get what you want, adjust one ingredient at a time and brew it again until you get where you're going.

I found this clone i want to make but i cant find a allgrain recipe

it asks for

6# gold LME
1# Light DME
1# Crystal 80

Would it be wrong to assume that i could sub 9# 2row for the extract.
I am also guessing there is Carapils in there too somewhere?

That's where I'd start, minus the carapils.  Might take a few tires to get it right, though.

Working 18+ hour days both yesterday and today...better than no work, but no time for beer, either.

Maybe you should make a "trub tea" to check?   ;)

Dude, I am so over teas.... ;D

How about with a 1000ml starter?  Probably all I can do with 1 vial of yeast, right?
Problem is that I'm at over a 3 hour drive from my HBS.


While 1 vial may not be enough for 5 gal., it's more than enough for a couple qt. starter.

Some years back, a guy on Brews and Views did an experiment where he produced 2 lagers, leaving all the break in one and removing it from the other.  His conclusion was the the beer with the break was clearer and tasted better.
