  • Currently brewing all-grain beers using a 5-gal mashtun with stainless steel braid and using a 6.5-gallon boil. I specialize in Koelsch, Pale Ales and their relatives, Witbiers, as well as Apfelwein-derivatives.

    I started out brewing with a Mr. Beer Kit, then moved on to extract with steeping grain kits, partial mash kits and ultimately custom partial mash and all-grain recipes. Austin Homebrew Supplies is my main supplier, although I have also had good luck with Midwest Supplies, Northern Brewer and Brewmasters Warehouse.

    Cool, didn't know "florida Weisse" was an actual thing. Gotta check it out next time i'm in
    Fla.They're trying to make it a thing. It's part marketing, part tongue-in-cheek take on the
    whole Cascadian...

    I use a plate filter from time to time. I love the thing, but I hate cleaning kegs (filtering
    requires two cleaned and sanitized kegs), so I don't use it as often as I otherwise would.

    You know, traditionally berliner weisse is served with woodruff or raspberry syrup. What makes
    a Florida Weisse distinct from a "regular" Berliner is that it is fermented with fruit (usually
    tropical ...

  • Posted in thread: How do you say "triple" on 04-14-2014 at 03:25 AM
    Depends on if you are in Flanders or Wallonia. Trih-PELL is in Wallonia. In Flanders it sounds
    similar to "triple".

  • Posted in thread: Are there any hops you actually dislike? on 04-11-2014 at 03:55 PM
    I dislike most crop years of Summit. I am also not fond of Calypso, Zythos, Helga, and Galena.

    The most likely culprit is a faulty thermometer, resulting in suboptimal mashing temperatures
    and partial conversion. Check your thermo. Check your hydrometer as well. If that's not the
    problem, re-ev...

    The floor-malted BoPils has a Kolbach index ranging from 38 to 44, which is about the same as
    the regular BoPils and higher than their regular Pils malt.

    Roggenbier. "Roggen" should rhyme with "logan."Not at all. It rhymes with "noggin".

    Briess Maltoferm 10001 is organic dry malt extract. I do not know of any organic liquid
    extracts. It is distributed by LD Carlson. Technically, it's a food-grade extract and not a
    brewing-grade extrac...
