Has anyone made any adjustments to the hefe wheat at all ? Ive just kegged my first batch it looks and tastes good but only 3.9% . I'd like to get it to around 5.5% while still keeping it tasting like a wheat beer. Any tips or thoughts would be great ?
Howdy! I brewed the 'Mr beer Long Play IPA' as per the instructions and have found the beer is very dark and has a burnt taste to it. Previously i brewed the 'Mr beer bewitched amber ale'. this was not as dark in appearance and had less dark flavors than the Long play IPA and also didn't taste burnt. i am using the coopers DIY craft brew kit. Does anyone have any idea where the burnt flavor could have come from? https://www.diybeer.com/au/coopers-diy-beer-craft-brew-kit.html https://www.diybeer.com/au/mr-beer-long-play-ipa.html https://www.diybeer.com/au/mr-beer-bewitched-amber-ale.html
I am yet to try this but logic dictates the following: There appears 2 ways to make beer for DIY Craft beer smaller tanks. 1. If using Coopers Craft 1.3 kg recipes – don’t add extra sugar in tank as sugar already mixed into the recipe. Costs approx Aus $1 per 740 ml bottle 2. If using other 1.7 – 1.8 kg recipes - then split into exactly 2 halves & store one half in air tight sterilised container in fridge for future batch. Use other half to make brew. Use stored half as soon as first half is bottled. When ready to brew recipe, mix in tank and add 500 g sugar. Will need to obtain & add yeast to second half of recipe as recipes only come with one serving of yeast. Use brewing yeast only. Costs approx Aus $0.50c per 740 ml bottle. Hope this helps. Would love to hear the results from anyone who tries this halving recipe.
