  • 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 glad you enjoyed it! :DI've never tried it on nitro, because I've never played with nitro.
    I'm sure it couldn't hurt anything. Might call it "Bobbingtons" in that case. ;)Cheers!

    Thanks for the reply! I have used your recipe/ratios as the basis of my first personal recipe
    that I have brewed twice with a lot of changes to your original super-simple recipe.Here is
    what I am tryi...

    Yeah, sounds like feed barley. The overwhelming majority of 6-row is unmalted animal feed. I'd
    thank him, hand him a beer, and also hand him the bucket back. :-)

  • Posted in thread: Crystal 150 Sub-English Mild Recipe on 01-29-2015 at 01:26 PM
    I disagree. Once you add a significant proportion of specialty grains/malts, the character of
    whatever pale malt you choose is completely overwhelmed. Moreover, plenty of world-class Mild
    ales are bre...

  • Posted in thread: Hefeweizen with Maris Otter on 01-29-2015 at 12:42 PM
    Maris Otter will make a fine Hefeweizen, as I can attest from personal experience, having
    brewed at least 400bbl of the stuff. ;-) I've never needed rice hulls with a 50/50 mix of pale
    and wheat malts...

    I really wouldn't bother doing any of that. I'd just drop it. Without the dark crystal it will
    still be a fine beer.Cheers!Bob

    Hey Bob... Been wanting to do something like this for a bit. I've had this thread bookmarked
    for months. Question - would it make sense to sub in flaked maize as the complete 10% adjunct
    instead of su...

  • Posted in thread: Very First Beer - Advice on 01-18-2015 at 01:21 PM
    In my experience, that's an excessive amount of 120L crystal. That stuff is potent. When used
    in excess the flavor is very unpleasant. Trust me; I speak from experience. :DIn a beer like
    this I'd not ...

  • Posted in thread: need help to reconstruct a mild recipe on 01-18-2015 at 01:09 PM
    Agreed. Brew the mild as intended. Giving her what she wants is very unlikely with that grist.
    Brew her a hoppy beer later.
