  • Got into home brewing in 1995 because, at that time, Central PA was a good beer wasteland. Nothing but domestic and imported pale lagers. I had developed a taste for good beer while in the Army, and wasn't ready to give up, so I went to my library and started reading. That led to a malt extract brewery. After a couple of years, I started brewing partial mashes, then moved to all-grain brewing. rnIn the beginning of 2000, I talked my way into a commercial brewing job, and I worked as a micro and pub-brewer until the end of 2005.rnIt took a few months before I felt the itch again. I brewed the odd batch here and there, just for kicks, but it wasn't until the end of 2006, when we bought our house, that I got right back into the swing of things. Haven't looked back!

    I'm wondering why you chaps are crashing and then letting the beer warm again. There's no
    point. It's not like you stand to get more flavor out of the hops that way.Chill it, leave it
    cold, dry hop it...

    Is there a benefit to leaving it in the primary after the fermentation is complete?I'm new to
    homebrew and have just brewed my 3rd extract batch. I've been trying to determine when to
    bottle. I just d...

    Also note that DMS is not a concern with Pilsner malt extract, which has already been boiled to
    drive off DMS precursors. :)I think you can brew 5 US gallons of a nice light ale with those

    Do smash beers typically have a problem with not having a foamy head? I like the concept of

    have to add ...

  • Posted in thread: Hoppy Blonde Ale recipe! What do you think! on 06-17-2014 at 10:51 AM
    If you're after flavor and aroma, my favorite methods are first-wort hopping for the former and
    dry-hopping for the latter, rather than adding at different points in the boil. Cheers,Bob

    This sounds like a yummy beer! The line between Brown Ale and Dark Mild is blurry. This smacks
    a bit too heavily of Brown Ale for me - Mild tops out at 1.040 and 20 IBU in my book. But that
    doesn't re...
