fOOb4r, The fOOb4r File :) You have over-ridden the auto-estimate for evaporation. It is always dangerous to lower the estimate as it is more likely to put you in a position, at the end of the boil, of having a weak wort rather than a strong one. The latter is easy to deal with whereas the former i...

It would be good to know the answers to these questions as Greg's book seems to be getting very popular at the moment, driven by Amazon's deep discount and positive reviews on the UK brewing forums, so I am sure it will keep cropping up. Oh and for purely selfish reasons as i have a copy just arrive...

I would appreciate it if you could take a look at my spreadsheet for this recipe, it is for a premium bitter that has got pretty good feedback and came second in a home brew competition, leading the judge to actually do a one off commercial brew. The link to the original recipe is here ; it was inte...

5) The boil time (equipment section) is set to 90 mins, but the first hop addition is at 60 mins. Does it mean I mean to boil my wort for 30 mins from the hot break before adding the hops? Are you relating your timings from when the boil starts or when you see hot break? It should be when the boil ...

Foob4r, Table sugar does add ABV to beer, But, If you have ever made K+K, the "Twang" comes from the Cane Sugar. So go easy with it. I thought it was interesting to get it from the horses mouth as to why the recipes were designed that way. I don't know what K+K (an American product?) is but good to...

You might find this post of interest, it is a discussion around the use of table sugar in Graham's recipes and includes Graham himself contributing an interesting as to why it is there in some of the recipes and what he would replace it with.

Welcome to the forum f00b4r (I will call you Fred I think though - please change that name!!! :)), Firstly, apologies for the slow reply. I'm usually a lot more diligent/faster here. As for the difference between brewing it as a lager and an ale, on one very limited taster tests, a few of us found ...

I believe Greg Hughes owns the Brew UK home brew online shop and associated forum so you should be able to clarify any details there and report back, this should also help raise the integrity of the recipes in the boon for everyone once any ambiguities are removed.

Style: Schwarzbier. This recipe can be brewed equally as well as a lager or an ale. Yeast: If brewing as a lager use Saflager S23 (or a German or Bohemian liquid equivalent). If brewing as an ale use US-056. Notes/Instructions/Comments: If fermenting with US-56, ferment on the low side of 16 C to 1...

This site is an amazing resource and i am loving the empirical approach that you guys have bought to brewing, I did find it a little hard to figure out where a lot of the information was but it looks as i...
