Video Tip: One Very Important Piece of Equipment

Taylor Caron is here to talk about brewing high gravity beers and in this video tip discusses one very important piece of equipment.

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine® contributor Taylor Caron covers everything you need to know about high gravity and high alcohol brewing, fermenting, and packaging. Whether you've encountered a stuck fermentation, incomplete fermentation, missing your original gravity, low carbonation, or other problems associated with brewing high alcohol beers, Taylor has the answer for you.

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
  • Hopping
  • Yeast selection
  • Boil considerations
  • High gravity fermentation
  • Carbonation and packaging
  • and much more

This course is complete with 4 recipes and tips from the experts at The Bruery.
