    ABOUT ME

  • San Diego, CA
  • Been brewing for almost 5 years now - how time flies...
  • Pretty much anything
    outdoors - motorcycles
    ,camping,gardening,you name it
  • Indy & Rock
  • Apocalypse Now
  • Started getting interested in brewing by talking to a guy at work about craft beers. Got a Mr. Beer and brewed a handful of batches and then decided to go for something that made the effort a little more worth while. Bought a "deluxe starter kit" that had a 5 and a 6 1/2 gallon set of carboys and all the basic gear I thought I needed (that list keeps growing)

    Thanks to all for the replies. Ski - the link GenIke posted is the recipe we use. And since
    nobody else has pointed it out yet, keep the hops away from the dogs - definitely not good for
    them!Now back...

    I'm in the middle of a brew (Yooper's Oatmeal Stout) and I'm thinking of using the spent grain
    for a batch of dog treats. However, I put a half pound of rice hulls in this batch and I've
    never done th...

    Thanks all, I appreciate the feedback! I made the starter and it is bubbling away on the stir
    paste.BTW, thanks for the top on freezing the DME, never thought of that!

  • Posted in thread: OK to use old DME for starters? on 10-29-2014 at 01:38 AM
    Getting ready to make a starter for Saturday's brew and I'm wondering if it would be OK to use
    some DME that's probably a year old. It's been in a zip lock bag but is more crunchy than
    powder. I do ha...

  • Posted in thread: Feedback on a Belgian recipe on 08-28-2014 at 03:21 AM
    I would agree but this recipe minus the biscuit malt and with a slight rebalanced of the
    percentages is one I've brewed before and it was well received by my homebrew swilling buddies.
    I thought addin...

    Hi all - I haven't been able to brew much lately and it looks like I'm going to have a chance
    to get one or two drew days in before the holidays so I'll have some homebrew for friends &
    family. One of...

  • Posted in thread: Fermentation Sampling on 07-04-2014 at 10:49 PM
    For me, there is no sampling during fermentation. I have bought a chest freezer and put
    temperature controls on it, added a thermo-well to my fermentors and have a separate control
    for a firm-wrap so ...

    I definitely miss my keyboard but I was thinking more of what BS PC version functionality is
    missing from the android version. Could you still pull up a .bsm file and use one of your
    existing recipes?...

    First off, nicely done insanim8er - excellent portable rig you have there. I'll set that as a
    future goal. For now, I'm going to go the cheapie route and get the little plastic CO2
    cartridge filler. S...

  • Posted in thread: Looking for quick & cheap CO2 rig on 06-24-2014 at 03:52 AM
    I read in one of the posts I found that the small cartridges are good for dispensing about 1
    gallon of homebrew
