  • Friends of friends introduced me to all grain brewing around 1995. Never bothered pursuing extract brewing. rnrnCurrently have 12 and 5 gallon rectangular Igloo coolers with hand-made CPVC sparge manifolds and sparge arm. rnrnBrew kettles include 2-keggles, 1-36 Qt SS Pot, 1-24 Qt SS Pot & 2-12 Qt SS Pots . Use a Bayou Banjo cooker for heat. Cool with a 50' stainless steel coil immersion wort chiller and intend to modify it into a Jamil-styled 'whirlpool chiller'.rnrnCurrently employ five glass carboys and four ale pales for fermentation. Use the Williams aeration wand for infusion of oxygen. I'm designing and hope to soon install a temperature controlled fermentation chamber and kegerator.rn rnI have many types of bottles and currently seven 'pin-lock' cornelius kegs and four ball lock kegs. Use a jockey box I built to service at picnics.rnrnNext on list, kegerator, fermentation chamber, March pump, whirlpool IM chiller ....

    I just finished bottling 6 gallons of Shiraz and have the wine lees and med. toast Hungarian
    oak cubes set aside to use in an upcoming brew. Having never done this before I was hoping to
    find some adv...

    It's a matter of your taste so just be sure to add small incremental amounts until it suits
    your taste buds. I need to do this one again. I have some 'skeeter pee' that I'm considering
    mixing with a w...

    You should be just fine with 5 weeks head start, and yes its best enjoyed young. Make sure you
    start soaking your orange zest now too as it will also take awhile to extract the volatile
    oils.

    A small amount of vodka isn't going to change the flavor of 5 gallons of beer. However, I
    personally recommend grain alcohol; mine had no flavor at all other than the orange.

  • Posted in thread: Anyway to fix a overly sweet beer? on 01-25-2013 at 02:24 PM
    There were many good suggestions in this thread, but I ended up pitching it out. Wasn't worth
    the hassle, and was just easier to replace it with good stuff.

  • Posted in thread: Clone Brews book- Celebrator Doppelbock recipe on 12-20-2012 at 10:25 AM
    Umm good!!It came out with a very complex flavor profile. A bit chocolatey, not bitter, smooth,
    rich, quite tasty. I mentioned hot alcohol taste when it was young, that flavor disappeared
    after about ...

  • Posted in thread: Pre-cook oats for american brown ale? on 07-26-2012 at 08:37 PM
    Should I mill them too?No need to mill. Oats have no hull to crack; the starch in oats is
    already easily accessible.

  • Posted in thread: Canning Wort for Starters on 07-24-2012 at 10:44 PM
    So any mixture of these would also be fine?IMO, yes. I might not use wheat unless it's a wheat
    beer, otherwise sny mix of base to make 1.040 wort is fine. A starter is too small to affect
    outcome of t...
