Lazy Chart For Converting – DME – LME -GRAIN

A lot of times, you need a reference chart in order to help convert from DME, LME, Grain and back.   This makes super fast work of converting LME and DME as well as grains.   Honestly this is one of the better cheat sheets that I’ve seen.  Really does make fast work when your in a pinch.

  17. Newcastle Brown Ale Clone | Jay's Brewing Blog - November 14, 2012

    […] Brown Ales are great beers for when you get off work and you want to pop something open.  This recipe is very much like Newcastle, I stumbled upon this one years ago and it has pretty much stayed true to the original recipe that I made.  If you are just getting into brewing your own beer, Brown Ale’s are great beers to start off with.  They are simple in flavor as well as ease of making, and most people have tried one before so you can usually calibrate if it’s actually good or not.  What I personally like about Brown Ales are that they not a polarizing beer.  Most people that enjoy beer can appreciate a brown ale.  Brown Ales are a British style beer, it has a nutty flavor to it with a little fruity ester to it as well.  If you are an all-grain brewer, use M.O for your base malt. Conversion is here. […]

  18. Dunkel Weissbier Recipe | Jay's Brewing Blog - November 27, 2012

    […] The result of doing this is a more filling wheat beer that is also darker in color.  Now with that said, I really don’t make too many Dunkel Wheats in the winter time even though it’s made for colder weather.  I typically make stouts, porters, browns, and reds in the winter time.  But if your taste buds regularly lead you back to having a good solid wheat, this is the beer that I would recommend.  For those that are interested in all grain check out the conversion chart.

  22. Robust Porter Recipe – Be Bold! | Jay's Brewing Blog - January 24, 2013

    […] If you are trying to get into the world of darker beers but you just aren’t ready for a stout yet, this might be a good beer to try out.   This style of beer is called, “Robust Porter”, they have an explosion of bold flavors and what some refer to as, “purple” in color.  Honestly today when you go to the beer isle and see Porter and think, “What’s the different between that and a stout?”  I could give you a technical answer and maybe that will be a post in the future but just know it’s a lot of brewers discretion  This is a simple recipe and we have a quick break down about the different aspects of it at the end.  Conversion Chart for DME-LME-GRAIN.

  27. Old Speckled Hen Clone Recipe | Jay's Brewing Blog - February 21, 2013

    […] This is one of my favorite beers. I love this beer when it is hot out, I like it when it is cold out – this beer is simply easy to drink.  It has a white head and an amber body.  For a while it was near impossible for me to ever make this beer because of the hop, “Challenger” was just so difficult to get, but now I have lots of it.  Over all this is an easy beer to make and easy one to drink.  If you make it soon it will be a good, “bridge” beer for the cooler months into the nicer days.  If you are looking to do it all-grain check out the conversion chart.
