Does anyone out there know some good recipies for making hard cider, or cider based fermentables? Is clear or unfiletered cider best? Return to table of contents
Date: 06 Oct 89 09:05:26 PDT (Fri) From: bryan at tekgen.bv.tek.com Subject: Poll of Brewer's Choice users. This is for all you Brewer's Choice liquid yeast users. What yeast #, i.e. 1098 or whatever do you use for: Lighter type ales, something with an O.G. of around 55 or less? Medium ales, porters? Stouts? If you have other criteria for deciding which yeast to use for what, please feel free to expound on that. If I get a lot of Email, I will summarize and post. Thanks, Bryan bryan at tekgen.BV.TEK.COM Return to table of contents

He used 6 lbs. of Australian Dark Extract (syrup), 1 1/2 oz boiling hops (bullion), and 3/4 cup of Maple syrup. He just bottled, so I don't know how it'll turn out, but he said that the bottling taste showed a lot of promise :-). -Jim Kipps Return to table of contents
Date: Sat, 7 Oct 89 09:59:10 MDT From: roberts%studguppy at LANL.GOV (Doug Roberts at Los Alamos National Laboratory) Subject: Clara Bell I kegged my Clara Bell batch 4 days ago, filling a couple of Corona bottles also, as I usually do so that I can check clarification progress. You all may remember the Clara Bell batch as the one with a pound each of cara pils an crystal malt with 7 pounds of light unhopped syrup. A total of 1 1/2 oz Hallertauer hops was used in the batch. Well, last night I couldn't wait any longer to taste it. So even though it hadn't yet fully clarified my wife & I opened one of the bottles, and it was _delicious_! It can best be described as an Oktoberfest-style beer (Papazian describes these beers as expressing themselves with a malty sweetness) even though it was brewed with an ale yeast. I will probably make this one with two oz. of hops the next time, but this batch show promise for being wonderful as-is. --Doug ================================================================ Douglas Roberts | Los Alamos National Laboratory |When choosing between two evils, Box 1663, MS F-602 |I always like to try the one Los Alamos, New Mexico 87545 |I've never tried before.

Date: Mon, 9 Oct 89 16:20:30 PDT From: Martin A. Lodahl <pbmoss!mal at hplabs.HP.COM> Subject: Porter Recipe Some weeks ago I promised (threatened?) to publish my recipe for the Porter I then had in the fermentor, if it turned out reasonably well. It did. Here's the recipe: PARTIAL-MASH PORTER =================== For a sweet, dark porter, best served warm on a cool afternoon. 3 lbs 2-row pale (lager) malt 10 oz black patent malt 6 oz crystal malt 4 lbs Australian dark (bulk) malt extract 11 AAU Northern Brewer hops (8%) Doric yeast 1/2 cup corn sugar (priming) Mash water: 6 quarts. Mash-in at 131-122F, stir 3 minutes. Mash pH 5.0-5.5; adjust with calcium carbonate or gypsum. Protein rest: 131-120F for 30 min. Starch conversion: 155F for 60 min. Mash-out: 168F for 5 min. Sparge: 2 gallons at 168-160F. Boil: 60 min. Hops: one addition at start of boil. The result is sweet, but very tasty. My next batch of Porter will be somewhat drier, trending toward stout. Changes will include using a less sweet extract (Scottish light), dropping the crystal malt altogether, bumping the bittering hops up a point, adding an ounce of Fuggles 10 minutes before the end of the boil for finish, and going to Edme yeast, which I believe to be more attenuative. I'm also toying with the idea of adding 8 oz of wheat malt to improve the less-than-impressive head, which is the only real defect this beer seems to have, IMHO. Enjoy! - Martin = Martin A.

The Conf. was from Oct. 2 through Oct. 6 So, I just received your phone message, and will call you as soon as I locate your phone number (I know I have it - yes, there it is hanging on the wall!). Victor may come for a visit to UNL soon, and I plan to apply for money to invite you to come in February. Is that a good Month for you? Olech will be gone by then, so I'll have more time for you.
