Default Simple Sahti Brewing recipe

Here is a pretty good yet easy Shati recipe: http://www.posbeer.org/oppaat/sahti/...es/juvaste.php

My take on it is to use the ingredients listed above to make a 40 liter batch and add 100 grams of dried (or 150 grams of fresh) juniper berries during fermentation and use a good liquid yeast strain in a one liter starter. Typically i'd suggest going with a good Baltic porter or Kolsch strain since the end result is far better (if less authentic) then the baker's yeast.

"sahti malt mix, a mixture of pale barley malt and pilsner malt and possibly some dark caramel malt will do well"

how do you know how much of each to use? is it just all equal amounts?

Typically the grain bill is about 45% of a 2 row malt similar to English Mild malt, 45% is a fairly typical 6 row pilsner malt and the remained is best serve with either a Biscuit malt or classic English brown malt although if you can't get those you can make do with a 60 degree crystal malt but I don't recommend it.

The best way to do it is to go totally old school with an open fermentor, wooden cooling troughs, extended boils, cask conditioning, under modified malts and a juniper mash-tun & hopback. Still, the recipe above is pretty good and moderately authentic.

Well, when I'm living in one place for more than a year and I have consistent income I'll consider going headfirst into sahti. Until then I will be making juniper beers in my carboys and simple modern setup. I'm just looking forward to having regular income so I can justify a lagering setup.

Nothing wrong with carboys! just follow the recipe as i've modded it and it should work fine. Be sure to pay attention the mash instructions since they are a little different then most. Also, no need to worry about lagering since personally I prefer that the yeast add flavour to the ale. The truth is that you can make excellent ales for 90% of the styles that are out there with out using anything but a very basic mash setup.

Snobbery is pretty droll and it's great to hear you want to get into brewing! I find that you'll enjoy bier more when you make it yourself and you'll lern a bit about chemistry. Be sure to buy "introduction brewing chemistry" Dr. George Fix Papazian's "the new & complete joy of home brewing" and join the AHA while you're at it.

Agreed. Every once in a while I want to make a lager though.

I have a mini fridge with a temp regulator on it for lagering. fits my 5g better-bottle perfectly. total cost was maybe $150 but I see people giving the mini fridges away on craigslist from time to time.

At this point a lot of it is the fact that I am not planning on living a sedentary lifestyle for quite some time. I don't feel like carting around more than I already am. A fridge is a bit of an encumbrance. Maybe once I get to California.

Well I have just order a bunch of equipment, and I'm waiting for it to get here. Them I'm gunna go the brew emporium in Cambridge mass and figure out what I'm gunna brew first. Chances are it'll be a apa. I hear those are hard to screw up. Although I reeslly like iipa's but we'll see ha.

Hajo, yes I will. I already have just reading about the actual chemistry and how the hops and wort interact to for different aromas and tones. Crazy stuff. And I'm also finding a new love for stouts. I had a victory dark king stout( I think) and it was amazing! Sadly, my expense every Thursday just went up :/ my friends and I go to a bar where they have dollar drafts... Of miller high life.... gag me with a 10 foot pitchfork. I used to be able to do a few shots and then just not care enough to taste :/ I have a feeling that's not going work for very long.

Now to pout myself a nice duval

Victory Storm King is a damn good brew.

For supplies I order from brewmaster's warehouse and I use their brew builder. It'll give you a discount on supplies for using it and they have a special rate for shipping if you use the brewbuilder as well.
