Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Lager temps
« on: May 30, 2012, 09:27:41 AM »
Well im attempting to dig up an old refridgerator from anywhere lol. Iv'e never tried a dunkelweizen to be honest, its definitely on my list to make. I'm making a stout next and depending on my situation with the fridge ill make either a bock or that dunkelweizen next.

Yeast and Fermentation / Lager temps
« on: May 28, 2012, 08:06:02 PM »
Ok guys so it decision time for me once again. What's my next brew? So one of my favorite styles is a bock, but I don't have an old fridge or any means for the fermentation temps. Are there any cheap and easy ways to achieve temps ideal for fermenting lagers?

8.0 oz Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM) Grain 3 4.8 %
8.0 oz Melanoiden Malt (20.0 SRM) Grain 4 4.8 %
4.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM) Grain 5 2.4 %

General Homebrew Discussion / dogfish tv show
« on: May 28, 2012, 07:29:15 PM »
I watched all the episodes and it was good. But I do remember seeing a show where Sam(I didn't know his name at the time) had a competition between 2 pairs of homebrewers to see who could make a better and more accurate beer to what the pilgrims would've made. I thought that was brew masters, but since I've seen all the episodes and that didn't happen it's clear that it's not. Does anyone know what show this is?

I doubt it, even if it was i think its very minor. I know a bunch of guys who used to use their hose water to brew without fda approved hoses and even though they switched to the sink there wasn't much of a noticeable difference. In fact i use my hose to clean my brewing equipment(well just my carboys and fermenter bucket) and i have never had an issue.

then from my understanding there is an issue with the lining inside the hose that can kill your beer. If your'e only using it to clean and your beer is good then i don't think you should worry about it. The reason i asked if it was old is because old hoses that have been through a lot may not have that lining because it came off a little bit with each use.

i know this doesn't really qualify for "general homebrew discussion" but i didn't know where else to put it. I know dogfish head had a little tv show and i remember seeing part of an episode but i didn't understand it so i shut it off. The tv show is on anymore as you most likely know but is there anywhere i could view the show, netflix doesn't have it :(

This is the new revised recipe, for the style guidelines for sweet stout on beersmith i'm in all red or yellow zones but this does seem to be pretty balanced to my eyes.I'm sure those guidelines are really just there to be broken to begin with. I may even move the DME back to 8 i'm not sure at this point.

sorry the brown malt was supposed to be roasted(tired mistake) but i changed it slightly. I made this thread while i was very tired. By U.K. stout i mean a stout using ingredients from there. I wanted a beer that would be accurate of what an english brewer would have made at a time before the ability of importing different ingredients.

Yeast and Fermentation / Starters?
« on: May 18, 2012, 07:02:24 PM »
So I know I'm a fool for never doing this but I've never made a starter. Basically I just want to know how to make one, do you hop it? Do you just mix DME with water? And while I have a thread up I gotta ask, what is a flameout? >.<

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / DME vs. LME
« on: May 09, 2012, 08:29:56 AM »
At my store it's 3$ for a lb of DME and 13$ for a 3.3 lb can. So I thought it was weird that anyone would use LME because I assumed DME was cheaper in general.
