Ingredients / Re: Avangard Pilsner Malt

So far I've used it in a German Pils, an American Barleywine(50/50 with 2 row for base), and a Belgian Dubbel. I even used some of the Avangard Munich in the Dubbel. I haven't tasted yet, but the efficiency was high.

If I'm still doing extract brews at this point, can purchase milled malts in place of DME or LME? Is there a way to avoid buying the DME/LME while doing extract brews?
No, that is called all-grain brewing. You can check out or try BIAB. WARNING - Brewing obsession could get turned up to 11.

Post your recipe on here before you brew. It took me a long time to figure out the different flavors that specialty grains add to overall flavor of the beer. We won't be shy at picking your recipe apart or not.

I got to brew on a Brew Magic system about a month ago. My buddy wrote the Android ap for them and we got use it for a weekend. It was very nice, but it was kinda like test driving a nice sports car for a week and then having to give it back. :-[

It looks like you have a hoppy Quad. Also, a beer like this might not start to meld together nicely until 8-12 months in the bottle.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Thank you!

This forum has helped me also with brewing better beer. I think this forum has helped just as much, if not more, than any brewing book that I've read. A great resource with an array of knowledge.

I like to look at brewing as an art form. Even scientists must look through the eyes of an artist in order to be innovative. I also believe that one must learn the fundamentals of particular styles before they are able to improvise with success. A musician, painter, sculptor, or etc. must have a foundation before new territories can be explored. I believe a brewer must learn the basis of a particular style like the others have said before they can tweak it successfully. You have to crawl before you can walk.

Since you have it in a bucket, you should be fine.

I just got a sack of Avangard Pils and decided on a Bo Pils with a double decoction.

I think you would be fine with that method. I'm not sure what software you use, but just think about how many IBU's that you want in the beer and add hops at the addition times to match your target overall IBU's. Of course, after you make a few let your own taste decide what adjustments need to be made.

I agree with the others..I get grapefruit flavor from Cascade, Amarillo, and Centennial.
