All Grain Brewing / Re: Thanks Everyone
« on: March 31, 2011, 08:03:14 PM »
I mentioned this in another post but it's sort of buried so I wanted to thank everyone who gave me advice on my first all-grain.  I tried it out last night with some friends and I have to say that I think it's pretty good.  Sure, there's lots of room for improvement but I'm sure that will come with experience. 

In particular I want to thank Denny for all his advice on batch sparging, Tschmidlin for his advice on starters and Euge for his real-time PM advice when things weren't going perfectly.  But also I wanted to thank all of you who weighed in with advice and encouragement. 

Thanks again.
ps.  This beer is a little sneaky.  Goes down very smooth but it certainly crept up on us last night.  Three guys went to work today with headaches.  Must be the water I used...

yea i'm sure it was the water ;D

if you want to try your hand at decoction, this would be the beer to try it on.  just be sure to have the WHOLE day blocked off  ;) :D

Well, looks like I'm blocking off all of next Saturday  ;D Now to search the boards, internet, and Palmer's How to Brew to get a clue as to what to do  ;)

Thanks again for all the guidance!



i did  my  first decoction last sunday and it took a full 8 hours

i did my first triple decoction last sunday and the beer, doppelbock, is still fermenting so i can't comment on what the differences are,but i tried it once and for what the trouble is, i doubt that i will try it again.
