    ABOUT ME

  • I am a Resident Director in a private college. To keep me sane, I have discovered the art of the brew.
  • Brewing,Drawing,Fixing crap around the apartment
  • Resident Director
  • Clint
  • Very eclectic. I love metal, reggae, funk, grunge... pretty much anything.
  • Fight Club, Step Brothers, Super Troopers, Grandma's Boy... to name a few.
  • Most recently the Universe and Spartacus... Netflix all the way.
  • All I have been reading for a while has been threads on HBT... oh boy.
  • I belong to the I've had a girlfriend for the past 7 years and delaying the inevitable club..
  • It all started after I was invited to a local brewery. Once I had my first beer there, I immediately thought to myself, "I have been drinking crap all these years... I bet I can do this myself."

    Haven't quite beat the brewery at it's own gave yet, but I hope to further develop as time progresses. I owe a lot to people on youtube and HBT for giving me those answers to those peripheral questions that come up moments after leaving the home brew shop. Aren't those the best when you are just starting out?

    Shout out to Bobby_M, donosborn, Keith Brown, and who can forget Craigtube.
  • Currently, I have just finished my first all grain brew. It's an American Ale... something simple for the first time. This was also the first time that I have kegged my beer in the kegerator that I built out of an old mini-fridge... god I love the internet.

    I force carbinated it over the past couple of days, tried it... nice, but still a little sweet. I think it needs a little more time, but not bad for my first crack at all grain.

    For the future, I would like to get into higher gravity beers, experiment more with different grain bills and get some more hop profiles to pop. After a year in, I would consider myself just hitting intermediate status as a brewer. Now that I am officially a part of HBT, I am confident that the community will allow me to grow at a rapid rate.

    nice I hear that! I would love to have my set up even grander... but a wife does the same thing

    hey clint - I assume that you mean you have have two hoses, running off a single body regulator
    (i.e. you can't carb at two different pressures at the same time). I would do just what you are
    saying. ...

    Glad it worked out for you. However,... how do you know:if you have only tried one method?I
    started out with set and forget (which works), then learned I could make 10-14 days turn into
    4-7 with the b...

    I just went to a local brewery and shared some of the information of this forum with the
    brewers there. Everything said here was on the money such as "boosting" and shaking the keg
    until the "gurgling...

    Hey Everyone, Great news! My Irish Red is carbonated and has a very respectable head retention.
    Thank you everyone for sharing your advice. It looks like two weeks in the keg at set and
    forget was the...

    I'm still trying to figure out why you replied to a thread from 4 years ago?Hey Malkore, So far
    I have had good luck with people reaching out to me, despite the age of the thread. I'm

    Idk,1.020 is still a little high to me. Make sure you have stable hydrometer readings over 3
    days to make sure it's done.Hey Everyone, Sorry for the back to back messages, I'm just getting
    used to the...

    I'd start by trying to figure out what I did wrong with the initial pitch, not enough yeast,
    yeast not viable, temperature too low, etc... I'd pass this 3% batch off as a 'light' wheat
    beer and try to...

    I am in a similar boat right now to balzar. I have a wheat beer (OG 1.047) that I just
    transferred into secondary after 10 days. I took a hydrometer reading after for 3 days and had
    an approximate rea...

    I have also heard that if you have a strong, solid boil during the brewing process that will
    encourage a stronger head retention. Also, +1 on TIME. Whether bottle conditioning or
    kegging... TIME is yo...
