  • My father loved to drink beer in the evening all his life. As he got older domestic beers was starting to cause him sever health issues. He started making his own beer and the health issues disappeared. He swore commercial beer will kill a person slowly. He switched to homebrew when he was 60 years old and lived to 81 when cancer finally got him. He told me, "if you are going to drink, drink beer. Don't drink that cheap trash in the store, make it yourself".

    Plastic. It's what I use. I'm a member of the camp that doesn't believe the benefits of glass
    are worth the potential of disastrous injury. I have children in my house and some of them have

  • Posted in thread: does oak smoked wheat= wheat malt+ a bit of rauchamalt? on 06-08-2015 at 08:47 PM
    I made a brew using only 2lbs of the oak smoked wheat malt. I wish I had used a great deal
    more. It is nothing like peated malt whereas a small amount goes a long way.

    Folks, if nothing else comes of this thread we should at least be reminded of how lucky we are
    to live where we live. I shudder to think of what could happen to the OP if he is discovered
    doing what h...

    I'm rather curious as to what your recipe is. What did you mix together to ferment? What
    amounts of ingredients did you use? What is it fermenting inside of? Where did you get your
    yeast? Please, this...

    I tried a new barleywine. Stone's Old Guardian. I like it. Now lets clone it. Does anyone have
    any recipes or thoughts? I'm not sure where to start.

  • Posted in thread: Funny things you've overheard about beer on 05-16-2015 at 08:31 PM
    I wonder how a wort would turn out if it was boiled at room temp by placing it under a vacuum?
    Conversely, could you make your own DME by pressure cooking wort at 350F and opening the cooker

  • Posted in thread: Bottle filler problems. Leaky leaky. on 05-11-2015 at 12:15 PM
    After 4 years of use my old bottle filler was finally drip-leaking to the point were I wanted
    to get a replacement. So far my replacements have been worse than the one I threw out. They
    actually do a ...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast pitch rate: Single vial vs. Yeast starter | exbeeriment results! on 04-22-2015 at 06:13 AM
    I think I get the point of this experiment. Based on my own experience, it strikes a chord with
    me. I've done several high gravity ales using far less than the recommended yeast amounts when
    I pitched...

  • Posted in thread: Full volume high gravity biab limits? on 04-20-2015 at 02:10 AM
    Whoa! What was your preboil gravity? And your FG?lol, you got me. I've gotten to 1.100 without
    adding sugars to the wort. I'll go edit that now. ;)
