  • When I was in the seminary some of my brothers decided to start brewing for the community. They made some nice beers, but all I did was fill bottles. A couple years later my father bought me a Mr. Beer for Christmas and I brewed my first batch of blueberry pale honey ale (just okay). I found a guy on Craigslist who was moving and put up his whole homebrew equipment collection for $50. I can't believe I actually thought about it for a while before snatching it up! I still use much of the equipment from that buy. I love to brew amber and pale ales.

    Oh, by the way, I'm going by these recipes: been reading around about Fuller's water
    additions and it seems they're a bit sneaky in that regard. Rascals don't mention anything in
    the above article.

    Hi Guys,I am planning on doing a couple Fuller's brews in the near future. To prepare for them,
    I'm sipping LP and ESB and I've noticed these two taste almost salty. I plan to use maris otter

    Hey yo,Anybody seen a sparkler attachment for a picnic tap, or any other, for that matter? Just

    Very nice solution. Way to think outside of the (ice)box.

    How'd this turn out for you alers? I am in a very similar situation myself. With some 005 .

    Brew looks like it's fermenting well.As for the gravity, did you top up to 5 US gallons, or 5
    UK gallons? 5 US gallons is 19 liters, while 5 UK gallons is 23 liters. I'm curious cuz I just
    bought an E...

    Do most of you set your thermie a few degrees lower than your intended ferm temp, or stick the
    probe to the fermenter and dial it in to exactly the temp you want to ferment at?

  • Posted in thread: Dial setting for freezer thermie? on 08-21-2011 at 05:39 PM
    I've used a thermostat controlled freezer to ferment for years, but I always set it at ~62F. I
    want to be on the safe side, knowing that the fermentation will increase the temp of the
    liquid. I've not...
