two American Brews

Here are two American style brews that I just completed. On the first brew, I was looking to do a pre-prohibition cream ale so I looked around learned some history and came up with this recipe. I also wanted to max out my 8 gallon pot so I did a variation with water added at boil and in fermenter. I...

Re: Australian Sparkling Ale

Ha - well don't I feel silly, sparkling ale is Cooper's pale ale... That's what I get for not doing a quick Google. Thanks for showing restraint and not blasting me on my question.

Welcome Danhalls - one of the things I love about BIAB is the ability to experiment, I often do small batches. Make sure you download the latest biabacus, search the site for info and don't hesitate to ask questions. Welcome hughesyourdaddy - "Did you hear the one about the Irishman living in Laos.....

Australian Sparkling Ale

Hi all, I am doing a little research into American pre-proabition beer recipes, right now focus is on cream ales (not surprisingly different tasting then the type out today) and I came across a reference to the Australian Sparkling Ale as having a similar history as the American Cream Ale. So of cou...

Re: Pale Ale Recipe -

Upon further contemplation (sampling) today - I think an increase in hops would improve the beer overall. Not a lot - the idea was to focus on the biscuit flavor, but a bit more on the bittering would improve.  I might even suggest throwing a little more wheat malt in for more head retention and bod...

Re: A case of the first worlds

Nice - is that green grass? I wonder what to hot to brew is.   :think:
It's -4 C here and a blizzard heading our way. :dunno:
Perfect weather to stay inside and do  a stove top three gallon. 
Enjoy the day and let us know if the book is any good.

Re: Adaptation of American Brown Ale

Hi Juan, Based on your file: For the original recipe (Brewing Classic Styles book) the VAW you should use is21.82L, but in your BIABacus you are setting the desired IBU so you are ok here. Little heavy on the two-row I would bring it down to ~65% and up the wheat based on the original recipe. Hop s...

Re: Black pilsner

Yeah, we call it The Black Pil at the brewery here, but it's not out in mass production yet, so I'm not surprised you haven't heard of it (Haha). Late last year I had a couple of really good German black lagers and got hooked - nice beer.  I figured out I need to follow up brewing a lager with an al...

Welcome to the site Mike7431! Brewing is a great hobby and can be as complex or simple as you want.  Don't think you will be disappointed in the site. I can say I learned to brew from this site - and it works great (just posted about my black pilsner).  Sounds like you have some experience already. ...

Black pilsner

So I just sampled my black pilsner lager and was very satisfied so I thought I would post and share.  I chilled to about 44F (7C), pitched and then let warm up to 50F (10C) followed the fast fermentation process - at about 50% attenuated I bumped up the temp stature 5 degrees every 12 hours until hi...

Re: Induction Cook Tops. Need advice please

James,  Scott has a good comment on the moisture. I typically brew inside -stove top. Usually 3+ gallon batches in 8 gallon kettle.  Some times I go larger by using full-volume variation.  Anyway I always brew with the window or two open - once I was halfway through a brew and found I had fogged up ...

Arkique,
I am a little confused on you hop schedule - looks like you did a 60 min mash and your hop schedule shows first wort hopping at 30min?  Was it FWH or at 30 minutes?

Welcome Brewn,
A cozy tasting room sounds just fine to me. If you have not loaded BIABacus, I would start there - it will help you understand the biab process and also with the recipe development. Look forward to your brew day stories. Don't hesitate to ask questions...
