Prost! from the Bay Area, California, USA

Unread postby TigNewton » Mon May 27, 2019 9:45 pm

Hello to all,

My name is Jim. I started brewing about 30 years ago with extract and then moved to all grain. Lost my 3rd all grain batch due high temperatures while away for the weekend. Frustrated, I put everything in storage. I am retired now and have much more time to focus on such things so I pulled everything out and began to refresh my memory on the procedure. I was in the process of upgrading my 3 vessel system to electric when I came across a new 20L Braumeister Plus on Amazon.com at a much reduced price. I could not resist and now I am the proud owner.

Only brewed two batches so far and look forward to many more.

Hopefully I will be able to provide some valuable input to the forum.

Jim

Welcome to the forum TigNewton.

You will enjoy your new Braumeister as they make brewing easy.
There is some great info from many experienced users on here so search away.
The worst thing that can happen if I die is that my wife will sell all my brewing equipment for what I told her I paid for it

I think a porter is in order. Had a "Black Butte" porter from Deschutes brewery in Oregon the other day and really enjoyed it. Found a few "clone" recipes online so I'm going to give it a try.

I have no idea what yeast Deschutes use, but the best Robust Porters I’ve brewed have used WY1882PC. (Thames Valley 2)

Which yeast do you plan to use?

Some of the clone recipes I found are using S-04 or S-05. I have both on hand so I will use one of these, S-04 I think.
