  • 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".

  • 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...

    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. ;)

  • Posted in thread: Full volume high gravity biab limits? on 04-19-2015 at 09:11 PM
    I achieve very high O.G. brews with BIAB through these techniques.1) Very well milled grains in
    my mill. I shoot for something that looks like a really course corn meal.2) Stepped mash. I'll
    dough in ...

  • Posted in thread: Pipe smoking, a lost art. on 04-12-2015 at 04:52 AM
    I agree, Carter Hall is a decent OTC pipe tobacco that is basic and offers nothing impressive
    other than a decent basic smoke that doesn't "bite" badly. Bite. That is the key quality of a
    decent smoke...

  • Posted in thread: I am Brewing Right this Second! on 04-11-2015 at 04:36 AM
    I like your happiness about brewing. I need an injection of that myself. I have 3 batches ready
    to bottle and I'm searching for the enthusiasm to get it done. In the meantime, I'm just dry
    hopping the...

    darn, if I didn't just purchase a bunch of this a month ago I would have jumped onto your
    offer. US-05 is a favorite. You shouldn't have trouble selling it at that price, even if it is
    close to the ex...

  • Posted in thread: So I just put my hand into fermented wort on 03-30-2015 at 02:45 AM
    I made a mistake similar to this once. I decided to bottle it anyways. After 3 weeks of bottle
    conditioning I opened a bottle only to have a sentient monster come out of the bottle opening
    and try to ...

    I'd say it's good. Do the dry hop, bottle, don't worry about it for 2-3 weeks. It'll taste
