    ABOUT ME

  • I am a boatbuilding student at the Landing School of Boatbuilding in Maine. I am also a corporate relations consultant but the boatbuilding thing is sposed to get me out of all that terrible office'y stuff for good. Been staving off brewing my own beer for a bit now...I guess it's time to get started though...
  • Full time student, and relations consultant
  • Been listening to a LOT of reggae lately...
  • too many
  • I've been holding off on brewing for ever basically because I know I'll turn into a nut over it...and then I got a groupon for a midwest first time brewers kit...and then I went into my local homebrew shop and bought a bunch of other goodies and now I have a pretty ok extract brewing setup. I have 3 6.5 gal primaries, two 5 gallon glass secondaies, and a 6.5 gallon bottling bucket. I also have a kettle that will hold 5 gallons with no room to spare and a decent little high pressure propane burner to cook it all up on.
  • I have the red ale ingredient kit from midwest and i plan to add a couple of oz of cascade to the boil and dry hop with yet another, oh, and I also plan to add an extra lb of light dme
  • I have a basic cider, 5 gals of aj from concentrate, and a wyeast activator pack of champagne yeast. And I also have a nugget pale ale my buddy nick hooked me up with, that I changed a little bit because I couldn't get any citra hops the dayI planned to brew, here's what I did use though:

    "Mash" (steep) 1lb Carmel 40L 30 mins
    Bring to boil
    Take off hot burner
    Add 6.6lbs Gold Light LME (Briess)
    Add 1lb DME
    Add 12 oz honey
    Back on burner
    Bring to boil
    Start Timer 60 mins
    Add 1 oz Nugget 60 mins
    Add 1 oz Nugget 45 mins
    Add 1 oz Fuggles 30 mins
    Add 1 oz Zythos 15 mins
    Wyeast American Ale activator liquid yeast pack

    will Dry hop with 1 oz of whole flower Amarillo (AA 10.4%) during secondary

    ...that their whole purpose in adding olive oil was to provide the fat molecule the yeast used
    the oxygen to create so they didn't need to oxygenate which would address their staling issue
    that is...

    I'll check on the FG, just have to de carbonate a little.As far as staling, I thought their
    (new belgium) whole purpose was to fight premature staling?
