Brewing a high-gravity all-grain beer can be a challenge, and getting it right requires some forethought and planning. These beers typically involve original gravities of 1.080 or higher, which means you may be using double the amount of grain (or more) that you typically brew with. Not only does this push the limited capacity of your mash tun, but it also lowers the efficiency of your brewing system. Join Taylor Caron as he walks you through everything from recipe development through fermentation and packaging your next high gravity beer. Taylor offers advice on:
- Recipe considerations
- Alternate mashing techniques
- Yeast selection
- Boil considerations
- High gravity fermentation
- Carbonation and packaging
- and much more
