    I haven't had a brew day like this is a while - Fun with yeast cakes!I had a beefed up stout in
    a primary vessel for about two weeks & I was going to move it to a conditioning vessel this
    weekend. I a...

    That's a nice color for the pilsner from an extract kit. It should clear up even more with

    I LOVE homemade pizza with homemade beer. Good God it's terrific. Have you ever tried grilled
    pizza? As if I didn't have spring fever already!5gB

    I haven't had any oil problems yet. The only time I had a 'problem' with a stout was when I was
    making a chocolate stout, and used giardelli chocolate. The fat from the chocolate created a
    chunky laye...

    5gBrewer... I brew 5g's at a time. It's hard to believe I haven't upped the amount brewed since

    Sparky... brewed my Scottish Grogg Coffee Stout today. All I do is brew the pot of coffee (in

    I had a bottle of that N'ice Chouffe Limited Edition 2007 myself. It was part of a Xmas beer
    package my wife got for me. Though I wanted to keep it to age longer, I couldn't resist. It was
    rather tast...

    need to let the beer sit on a yeast cake for more than 3 weeks, and chance picking up off
    flavors/aromas. R...

    Seriously... I used to bring my HB to my gigs and rehearsals, but realized then that I had a
    need to brew a whole lot more often. The solution I used was to brew higher gravity heavy
    beers, so they wo...
