With September just around the corner, it is almost time to begin brewing again. I do like the real old-timers used to do and that is take the summer off from brewing. Summer seems to be a better time to drink the beer than to make it. Well, anyways, I was reading my latest copy of Brew Your Own magazine it it has a great article on the proper procedures for extract beers. The four procedures are:
No-Boil Brewing - I have never tried this but looks like a great time saver. The extract is added at the end.
Concentrated Boil Method - This is what I normally use. You boil a condensed wort and then dilute it in the fermenter.
Extract Late Method - This is where you add the 1/2 the extract towards the end of the boil
Texas Two-Step - This is where you essentially boil 1/2 the wort at 1 time.
On my next batch of beer, I plan on using the No-Boil Method. Bascially to see if it saves time and if that method makes good beer.
