Re: Another Bells Two Hearted ale

Believe me, when I brew I prefer the British malts however if you are looking to copy 2 Hearted then with the Maris Otter you will not have the correct flavour profile. Still a good beer I am sure but not the same.

Re: Another Bells Two Hearted ale

I think that you should consider trying lager malt rather than the Maris Otter as Bells is only using 2 Row malt anyway.

Re: Cider kit

Re: Russian Imperial Summit

Just my opinion, but if this is your first RIS then I think it better that you stick more to your base recipe and resist the temptation to make too many "exotic" flavour additions. On the other hand you may want to split the batch , do half with the vanilla and coffee beans etc. and the other half w...

Re: UK hops influence on head retention

The reasons for the difference in head are simple: Traditional Belgian beers are generally primed to between 3 and 4 volumes of CO2 - very high - and they also will tend to use a high amounts of foam positive adjuncts such as wheat. Traditional British beer will end up with roughly 1.2-1.8 volumes ...

Re: Coriander seeds instead of Citra?

I find them best used after lightly toasting in a pan on the hob as it releases the oils.

Re: Gluten Free Beer

these products does affect the beer and you'll need to do some recipe adjustments. I have an article due to appear in Zymurgy later in the year that delves into this. What sort of recipe adjustments are you referencing? I am curious as I have used Clarity Ferm several times now with good results. C...

Re: Nelson's Wheat

The only change I would make is to increase your wheat malt to 500 g more than the other base.

Re: Strong American Porter

Sounds as though the recipe was a success :D Do you bottle all of your brews or do you keg some? I keg most of what I brew these days although I do not force carbonate.
