  • I like porters and stouts, so that's probably what I'll concentrate on.
  • histo320's "None More Black" vanilla stout
  • "True Brew" Pilsener

    I never check pH or adjust water profiles. I buy drinking water at the store and go.Should I
    start?Hell, you're already ahead of me. I just fill my brew kettle from the utility sink in the
    basement. I...

  • Posted in thread: Funny things you've overheard about beer on 08-01-2016 at 04:51 PM
    I haven't actually had it (that was just a random Google pic), but chili beers usually don't do
    it for me, so I'll probably pass.The only one I've ever had that I liked was Ghost Face Killah.

    An American Wheat. SWMBO just informed me that I was expected to bring some beer to a picnic in
    a couple of weeks. I heard wheat ales ferment quickly, I hope that's true. Go go gadget

  • Posted in thread: What is your favourite beer with pizza? on 06-30-2016 at 09:05 PM
    I like maltier beers with my pizza, a nice California Common or a Trappist ale. Hoppy IPAs have
    too much "contrast" with the dough and meats I usually get.

  • Posted in thread: My 1st BIAB Log on 06-30-2016 at 08:47 PM
    I used whatever crush the LHBS had. They kindly crushed the grain there as I don't have a mill

    in the bay area...

    Fair warning: most "commercial quality" upright freezers have cooling coils running through the

    can't adjus...
