  • I have been brewing beer for about 25 years. Started with extract batches, and bottled them. A few batches with partial mashing. I can't remember when, But I finally stepped up to all grain batches. Still bottled them too. A few years ago, I upgraded to kegging my beer. Much nicer !!! I have since acquired several 5 gallon Cornelius kegs, and even a few Coke CO2 cylinders. 20 pounders. Lots of co2, for lots of beer. Unfortunately most of them I can't get filled due to litigation with CCE.
  • Formulating a Mead of some type. I haven't decided exactly what just yeast. I need to see how much honey I still have.

    I have all the grains ready for an Oktoberfest, that I have done in the past, and really turned out good.

    Also have a Sam's Utopia clone in the primary, still, and has stalled.

    Lots of stuff going on with SWMBO, wedding in June, 2011.
  • Lots of different ciders and cysers.
  • Mackeson XXX Stout Clone, Westlevern 12 clone. Going to force carb, and make a beer gun to bottle these.

    Also, I just kegged my second batch of Old Speckled Hen Clone. The first half batch turned out great.

    I have something very similar going on. I started a basic hard cider, let it do the primary
    fermentation. Then racked it onto thawed and pureed strawberries. I let the secondary
    fermentation go for ab...

    I did a Hard Lemon Cider a couple months ago. I added real lemon juice to the primary, once a
    full active fermentation was going. It scored a 38 at the Minnesota Mashout, last month. I also
    have a str...

    I did a demo for our homebrew club last year at "Teach a Friend to Brew Day". It turned our
    really good. A pretty good beer kit.

  • Posted in thread: Step increasing sugar to top out EC-1118 on 02-02-2016 at 06:12 PM
    I would get it started around 1.100, like you are suggesting. Make sure you give it plenty of
    energizer and nutrient. You could even mix that into the sugar additions. Speaking of that,
    what are you p...

    I made a strawberry cider, that is still in the carboy. My thoughts are I want the most flavor
    and aroma from the fruit that I can get. I have made fruit wines in the past and always add
    more fruit to...

    So I successfully pasteurized a batch of cider last night. I let the cider completely ferment
    to 0.996. I then added some cider concentrate with a bit of honey, to bring the SG back up to
    1.020. I let...
