Topic: How much sugar to carbonate (forgot to measure gravity)
Replies: 4
Views: 8013

I think 1 ounce of corn sugar, per 1 gallon of beer. Although, usually I go a little below that. 3/4 of a cup would probably be alright. Then if it is a little undercarbonated you can adjust accordingly on future batches. Mix the corn sugar with 2 cups of water, and make sure to lightly stir (no spl...

Have you tried repeating recipes? Maybe a variable is off in the software? See if you hit the same OG with the same recipe, then look at the variables.

I would look at these yeasts:
Wyeast
--------
1007 German Ale
1098 British Ale
1275 Thames Valley Ale

Maybe even a California Lager Yeast, since its temperature range is between 58-68 F.

It would be alright to replace the wheat in the mash with the emmer, along with some 2-row to make either a wheat or wit.

Thanks. Yeah, I'm kinda figuring it might not be exactly a stout. I'm going to have to do a little more research and look at different recipe combos.

Re: bad beer

I was just wondering and thank you all for your replies. The reason for the question is I get to drinking and every once in a while I misplace a freshly opened beer and the next morning I find it full and I really hate to waste my home brew. I was telling someone about my drunken beer misplacing an...

I feel where yaturaz is coming from about sharing recipes. Just like anything you want to keep your secret recipe to yourself. Personally if I sold commercially, I think I would share the recipe. Homebrewers would come up with a clone anyways. Just like what has been said, it is the brewer not the r...

Yeah. I really want it to taste a lot like a stout, but it is difficult to work around the color because of the roasted barley needed for a stout. A lighter extract might help, maybe something like Munich then I could use more roasted barley. Looks like I might have to drink a few Reds and Stouts to...

Amber Stout

I'm in the process of formulating a recipe for an amber stout. I would like it to be more malty and bitter, but amber in color. Right now it is pretty close to a sweet stout or robust porter. Here is a quick rundown: (extract recipe) Amber Malt Extract Syrup - 6 lbs. Amber Dry Malt - 1 lb. German Ca...

I like to primary for a week then go to the secondary. I do the secondary because it helps clean up the beer. You probably can leave a beer in the primary for a little more than a month, but it won't clear it up.

What are you brewing?

I usually just wait a week, but I did rack to secondary after 5 days with a Cream Ale. That turned out great.

No kidding, but the wait is well worth it. I just made a brown at the beginning of February and bottled at the beginning of March, now after a couple months conditioning it is very good. In two weeks it was good, but now it is excellent. Just don't drink as many while your waiting. :D

How long did you have the lager in the primary? How long was it in the secondary, if you used one? How long has it been conditioning? The temperature is just about where you would want it, maybe raise it to where it is around 45-50 degrees. Lagers will take a few months of conditioning before they a...
