Tips for partial boil/extract kit brewing?

Postby Mattheus_Rex » Wed Oct 02, 2013 5:53 am

I'm getting ready to start brewing again for the first time in 7 years. I'm doing an extract kit (MoreBeer ESB) and a partial boil. It's been awhile since I've done this but remember how and want to see if there are any tips out there, stuff I may have forgot and such. I remember last time I had issues with cloudiness in the beer, but everything tasted good.

1. Make a yeast starter
2. Make a yeast starter
3. do a full boil if your able to.
4. Look up late extract method.

I have been brewing for a couple of years useing the can kits and always had a problem wwith the beer keeping a good head it always started fine but went almost imediatly. For some reason the last brew I did not drink for ten weeks aand all the bottles have a good head and held to the end of the glass. So there really is something to learn every time you do a brew.
