Weizen-Wit-Wheat -Ale/Lager

Im currently in the process of designing a wheat beer with the ingrediets I have on hand, I can go AG or partial mash and Im mostly a German style Lager brewer and not real confident in my abilities to design a weizen recipe. Does it seem correct to go about half n half 50/50 ratio of wheat malt to ...

Id almost bet money that next time y...

It is not uncommon for extract brews to have a higher final gravity than planned. I had this happen with nearly every extract batch I made. The main idea is to get it down close -in the general area of expected FG. Time will usually do that for you, Patience grasshopper. Since doing all grain batche...

I agree w/ Todd above...but If I may add, My chill haze problem seemed to be more of a yeast still in suspension haze. I solved the issue by cold crashing after secondary to near freezing temps for 24-36 hrs before racking the beer to keg or bottle. By dropping out all the yeast I possibly can befor...

Quite the contrary on Lagers. For the most part, they dont need to be "lagered" for years to be good. As a matter of fact mine are nearly 2 weeks longer than my ales-give or take a week. My selections for Tap would be: 1) Czech/ Ger Pils- lets face it,most americans are at least familiar with a pils...

well- to answer my own question. After almost 2 hrs of messin with my setup, Ive decided a sankey D US standard will indeed tap a newcastle Euro Keg. So I guess, out of personal experience A "S" Euro tap is basically a Sankey D "US" with a longer probe hence I have the perfect tap. Im haveing a foam...

Sankey D and Euro S couplers

Quick question about a commercial keg. I have 6 sankey D taps and Im in the process of tapping a Newcastle Brown 1/2 barrel keg I recently acquired. Of the 6 standard Sankeys I own, 1 in particular has an extended long probe that protrudes well below the bottom of the tap. The others all seem to be ...
