  • Got started with a beginner's starter kit while looking for another hobby. The obsession turned into a job and then a career and I spend my days working in the beer industry. With the career came less time for hobbies but after 3 years of 1 or 2 batches a year I've returned full force into the hobby this time with a more creative approach to brewing instead of just brewing to win competitions.

  • Posted in thread: 5 Gallons at which stage? on 12-03-2016 at 08:55 PM
    I make my recipes for 6 gallons. I leave a little in the kettle and a little in the carboy and
    end up kegging 5 gallons.

  • Posted in thread: Wyeast 3787 Trappist High Gravity - stuck fermentation? on 12-03-2016 at 02:40 PM
    ... It is fermenting next to a NE IPA with London Ale III, which is stuck too, and I'm not sure
    about that beer taking any higher temp. It did not go over 150 degrees F in the mash either. If
    you have...

    If I were in your shoes I'd rack it on top of a fresh cake of something like 099 that was just
    used in a 1.040-1.050 OG beer. If that didn't work than Id just keg and force carb and bottle
    from there....

    Turn the jar upside down to soak the other half. I have a bunch of jars with oak cubes soaking
    in various spirits. Every once in a while I flip them upside down/right side up until I use

    I suppose you could. That's how I dry hop but when I add fruit I dump the fruit/puree into a
    new carboy and rack on top so that it mixes well. Now as I read this I wonder which way may
    introduce more ...

    Cant help you but this reminds me a situation i was in years ago. I was rebrewing an imperial
    stout for MCAB and got a stuck mash that would not budge. I tried stirring up the mash, adding
    rice hulls,...

    I've taken classes at the IBD at London and was not very impressed with the curriculum and it's
    presentation. I also found their negative attitude towards the German and American brewing
    cultures disc...

  • Posted in thread: Will they freeze? on 11-09-2016 at 02:31 PM
    Depends what the temps are during the day and how long you'll have low temps overnight. I
    usually have beer in my car/van for work and leave it there overnight. If it's 50-60 during the
    day and hits 2...
