  • Student baker & fermentation enthusiast. If it can sour, pickle, or turn to booze, I'm into it. I live with my wife and my father outside of Baltimore, MD and am just now really trying to learn more about beer than "that tastes good" or "jesus, that's terrible!" I mourn the loss of Natty Boh to the BMC machine.

    Started a gallon batch of this yesterday afternoon with a new-to-brewing friend. Never done
    wine before but this is a great, simple first step. Pitched at 5pm w/EC-118, and we had
    fermentation by midn...

    This thread is perhaps the nuttiest thing I've read today. I'm all for principle but IMHO, I've
    got better things to do than contemplate legal action over an attempted $40 screw-job by some

    Yeah - although the OP originally formulated the recipe without, campden+sorbate have since
    been recommended to stabilize it, so I'm giving it a go. I might brew up another batch in a few
    days and for...

    Just transferred my 2-ish gallon batch. Racked it over 2 crushed campden tabs & 1tsp sorbate.
    Gonna let it sit for a week, then bottle with 4-5oz lemonade concentrate and bottle. How long
    is everyone ...

    There's no need for campden at all - you're adding them to a pretty hostile environment as it
    is. I've done a handful of batches of this stuff, and never had an infection, and I've never
    heard of a ba...

    Brewed this up yesterday. OG ended up lower at 1.036, but I did end up with slightly more than
    a quarter gallon more than the 2 gallons I expected (multitasking a bit while measuring my
    first water ad...

    Hey Ben! Welcome again to HBT! Assuming that you likely have fairly limited space, you might
    want to check out small-batch brewing. There's a pretty awesome 1-gallon brewing thread going
    on over here:...

    Zekk - What kinda recipe are you working on? And as for temp control, have you tried swamp
    cooling? I've gotten pretty decent results with my small-batch brews when I've needed to drop
    the temp in a p...

    So, what are everyone's brew-year's resolutions? Trying a new recipe? Getting into kegging for
    the first time? Maybe building a sweet electric system, or even finally making the jump from
    extract to a...

I like my beer like I like my women: Rich, intoxicating, and slightly bitter.
