Q: I'm brewing Witbier. I put the DME in after the LME was incorporated. Is my beer ruined?
A: The DME and LME have certain times reccomended to be added by the manufacturer but as along as they are dissolved into the “wort” and were boiled for at least 5-10 minutesto sterlize, should not pose any issues with the finished product
Q: Do I steep the 2 lbs of wheat oats and crushed pale malt then add the liquid extract, then what about the 2 lbs of dry malt extract? Or do I use the liquid or the dry, just not sure of sequence.
A: Steep the grains for 20-25 minutes at 160 degrees and then begin to bring the water up to a boil. Add the liquid extract after you steep the grains, making sure to stir. When you have added the liquid extract, you can then add the dry ,making sure to stir while adding.
Q: Does the orange peel and coriander go into the fermenter or should it be strained out?
A: It would be best if you could strain these spices out as you transfer to the fermenter, but if they do make in there, they will fall out with your yeast trub during fermentation.
Q: I have just started homebrewing. I was wondering why the link to add more yeast on this kit? I was told to use the brewers best kits and nothing else was needed.
A: The Brewers Best kits include dry yeast. We allow the option to add liquid yeast as we have found some people have a preference to other yeast types.
