  • I was living in Utah at the ripe old age of 21 and decided to be as anti-Mor...err..establishment as possible. I began home brewing. I did DME as my first beer, and thought it was some of the best I'd ever had. I immediately began doing impromptu recipes and never had anything else turn out well. I opened my beer making supplies again about 10 years ago after moving to Kansas, and made a beer using ingredients from the LHBS, awful again. I started doing research on the net, purchased a few kits from Northern Brewer, and have been very happy. I recently (February '10) discovered Brewmasters Warehouse, chose a couple of styles and made them. I'm enjoying a pseudo-Klsch as I type this -- I did everything to style with the exception of the yeast. I chose to be different and used Wyeast 3864-PC, and man, I tell you, this is some of the tastiest beer I've had in a long time. After kegging, I immediately put a beer more of style on that yeast and added a bit of Red Star Pasteur Cham
  • I plan on doing my first all-grain before long. I purchased some 3-piece valves, sight glasses, and thermometers for my keggles from members. I have placed an order for a FB with another. This is a great site for information related to brewing and I enjoy seeing the kind of support that exists within this forum.

    My first experience with over night mashing was a huge success. Come October I plan on a repeat
    of a 1c - a little less of the rice adjuncts this go around. If it tastes the way I hope, I'll

    You might try Dudadiesel. They're relatively cheap with tons of food and/or photo grade
    chemicals and some of the best plate chiller pricing I've seen. Plus since it's in alabama you
    can feel all outl...

    You probably didn't use enough. I made a all-calypso IPA and got really good results. It almost
    has a minty flavor and excellent floral aroma. Interesting. My hope was to have the Apple and
    Pear taste...

    My experience with the Calypso hops -- great bittering, flavor and aroma profile greatly
    exaggerated in the write-ups at the stores selling these hops. I detected no flavor or aroma
    when I did a SH br...

    I just did the same thing with MO.... The calypso kind of suck. Good for bittering but really
    no flavor. All I can taste is Citra, which I love so I will drink away+1 on the calypso opinion
