'Is this possible that beer could be brewed up somehow with weed?' Sure, in the same way you can put any sort of anything in your beers, as long as you think it will taste good. But to answer the more important question: '[W]ould you get the effects of both beer and pot both?' It would very much depend on how you used it in the process. THC, the ...

The major bitter compound in hops, the so-called alpha acids, aka humulone, is a terpenoid (derived from terpenes). The primary active ingredient in that "herb" you're smoking, the tetrahydrocannabinoids, are also terpenoids. Both Humulus lupulus (hops) and Cannabis sativa (marijuana) are, in fact, two genera in the family Cannabinaceae. It is entirely ...

Yes you can. Simular to cooking with it It can have all the medicinal effects. There is a specific extraction that needs done, it's simple but I don't care to explain the how. As the question was only if it's possible. It's not like a hop addition, or dry hopping. That will only make a skunk beer.

You can kick up a fuss you'd be justified as it is not what you ordered. But, I'd just throw in some extra Dark Patent Malt and Roasted Barley, may be an extra .5lb of each to try and pull back the colour. Adding extra Roasted barley may lead to a more harsh bitterness, but adding more patent black should be OK. If you do nothing you should end up with a ...

As always, it depends. Boiling uncovered makes mineral content higher, but lets volatile components to evaporate. Boiling covered - opposite. We don't know what's in your water, so we can't reliably tell which is better. Ideally, mineral content is low, and your water supply uses ozone instead of chlorine-based substances to prevent bacteria growth - then, ...

A fellow turned me onto Brewtarget to help me calculate the specifics of my batches. It's also has some sample recipes to start with. Might help you.

I use The Recipator for estimating gravity, IBUs, and color. This tool provides general ranges for various styles, including IPAs. You should notice the style guidelines for IPA top out at about 7.5% ABV. If you want something a little stronger you'll need to add some extra fermentables and I'd recommend boosting the IBUs in the same proportion. (I.e., if ...

Another option is to make an ethanolic cannabis extract, then add it your brew. Assuming you're seeking the psychoactive effects of weed, not just the unique aromas that are often associated with it, Your process would look something like this: Bake the cannabis in order to convert the THCA into THC, and possibly CBN. Soak the weed in a neutral, high-...

By my rough calculations it's about 1kg in 18 liters - to convert to units I can use my intuition with. This means you provided a bit over 5 Blg worth of fermentables by adding sugar. Not bad. I did more, on purpose. First thing, you just increased your ABV by about 2~3%. That's neither good or bad. Second, you didn't provide anything that usually goes ...

Your best bet is to add all your fermentables at once. The reason is that if you wait until your 7% beer has completed primary fermentation to add more yeast, you are adding that alcohol tolerant yeast to a hostile environment - one in which there is already a high level of alcohol present. Despite being bred as a "alcohol tolerant" yeast, it is still yeast ...
