Looking for a beer to brew

Post #1 by Werwer2018 » 3 months ago

Hi There, I'm new to home brewing and looking for a beer to brew. Not sure what all the styles are and haven't done any partial mash or full mash brewing. looking for a beer that has a smooth taste and high in alcohol content, if that is possible. I just finished a batch of Long Play IPA and that is the most bitter beer I've ever tasted. I usually drink the cheap beer like Laker Ice but it's not as bitter as that is. Anyway I'm looking for a LME and maybe I can figure out doing a partial mash to enhance the flavour if need be. I've read a lot about body, not sure what that is though. Aroma that doesn't matter to me as ( I can't even smell a skunk ). But taste that's all that matters !
This to shall pass ... :cheers:

Basically get some LME and add some corn sugar to get the alcohol content up. You will need more yeast than usual to handle the high alcohol content.

This site has lots of recipes. www,brewtoad.com

Brewing high alcohol content beer can be a challenge. You don't want to end up with a sweet beer.
