I had no clue how many Saison brewers we had up in here... 3 recipes already. I may have to get on this.


It's a really fun style to brew. I haven't used brett on anything yet, and not sure i will. I do have 2 saison's planned for next year. One will be a blood orange saison, and the other a saison similar to Goose Island Sofie, i'm calling French Benefits (using wyeast french saison yeast).

I did. Obviously a yeast starter is ideal.

I can vouch for the Mammoth, it's a really good stout.

Santa Clause is bringing me the proper equipment to brew some beer. Is there a website or book any of you would recommend to get me started on the right foot? Is there an "easy" beer to try for my first brew?

How to brew - John Palmer. I'd start off doing extract brewing. You can buy the kits off austinhomebrew. Good luck it's an addiction!

Go with How to Brew, and brew the first recipe in that book, the Cincinnati Pale Ale. It is a good little pale ale. The book basically starts you out brewing. The first chapter is a step by step guide to brew that beer. The next chapter explains what you just did, and why you did that. It really is a vital book to any beginning homebrewer.

Not really. I've had it before. It's not even a light brown color.

It is very solid. He's really got it fine tuned.

That little bit of dark grain is just meant to tint the beer for the most part.

re: Homebrewing: Official Recipe Thread (All-Grain & Extract)


This is an attempt to help new home brewers.

FIRST TRY

I did an American Amber home brew kit for my first brew:

The instructioons that came with the kit were very good.

The following were notes I made that the instructions did not cover.

buy a long stainless steel spoon
buy bottle brush
buy large funnel
buy turkey baster or wine thief
put dry rugs down on tile floors. Area can get slippery.
secondary fermentation is a waste of time.
need about 50 brown and not twist off.
cooling wort before pitching yeast takes a long time.
measure OG before putting in carboy.
yeast is very active the first couple of days
plug and air cap kept getting pushed out of carboy
I drilled larger holes in cap. This seemed to work.
You may want to use a tube and water vessel set up.
Put priming sugar in before bottling. Mix well.

Use priming sugar calculator

Priming sugar calculator

This beer turned out OK but I would not do again. It was a good learner.

SECOND TRY

My second attempt was a partial mash which turned out very good.

This is the recipe I used, kind of like a Blue Moon.

Belgian wit partial mash recipe

It took a long time to cool wort after boil. Put pot in ice water in sink.
Read yeast instructions before starting. Some require 3 hours prep.
Put rags or rubber mat in sink when cooling wort.

I really liked this beer. Family enjoyed also.

THIRD TRY

Working on full grain right now. Will follow this post with more notes if anyone cares.

Nice! You mention twice about cooling the wort. Look into buying or DIY'ing a wort chiller.

I started to do this and bought a 20' X 3/8" flexible copper tubing from Home Depot. I would suggest a 1/2" diameter. You do not realize how much heat you have to dispense of. Also, this tubing kinks very easily. The packaged coil diameter was too large for my pot. What I found out through trial and error is that if stepped gently on one end and pulled the coil up vertically to about 3 or 4 feet off the floor, you could slowly tighten the diameter and work the tension down the coil until you reach the desired diameter.

For the 90 degree bend, I used a plumbers tube bender which is just a spring that slips over the tubing. You can slowly get the bend you need. You could possibly heat the tubing with a propane torch and bend it that way.

The connectors, tubing and such are elementary.

Hope this helps.

May use this grain bill as my first BIAB batch. I have an inventory of hops that I will use in substitute of the ones listed here. I really like a good rye IPA

Snooze Button Breakfast Stout

Extract version, 5 gallon batch

Steeping Grain
1 lb Flaked Oats
12 oz Chocolate Malt
8 oz Black Patent

I wanted to use de-bittered black but they were out, but will probably go with black roasted barley next time

Fermentables
7 lbs Maris Otter LME
1 lb Lactose

Hops
1/2 oz Nugget @ 60
1/2 oz Willamette @ 30
1/2 oz Willamette @ 10

Yeast
1 package WLP002 English Ale

Added 6 oz cacao nibs after fermentation

Added 3 cups cold pressed coffee a day before bottling

According to Beersmith, this should yield the following:
Beer Details:
OG: 1.060
ABV: 5.8%
Color: 36 SRM
IBUS: 36.8

However, I ended up with the following:
OG: 1.054
ABV: 4.3%
Not sure just what happened. I know pre-boil gravity was on the money. I guess it didn't boil off as much as I thought it would. Then it didn't ferment down as low as predicted.
