  • I stated in 1998 with mead when a good friend of mine showed me how to make it. I then went on to show him how to make it taste good ;) After brewing mead for a couple years I gave beer a shot as American beers sucked after living in Germany for 2 years (USAF).rnrnMy beers were pure extract beers. they were OK but missing something. Next I added steeping grains which added more flavor to the beer but it still wasn't what I was seeking. I had read about All Grain but the lack of money for the extra equipment kept me at extract/steep beers. rnrnThen one day I read about BIAB. Brew In A Bag. It was All grain brewing without the extra cost. I quickly went out and bought some material and handed it to SWMBO. Who looked at me like I had lost my marbles (we all know that happened YEARS ago). Yet since she loves me she measured my 10 gallon kettle and quickly made a bag for me, along with a hop sack. The rest is brewing history!

    exactly.. 1lb of honey is a VERY small amount. with the other grains and the hops and possible
    honey flavor is overpowered. it's really only there to boost the ABV :)

    Well the brew went pretty smooth.....until I realized I forgot to add the damn honey at flame
    out:mad:I just realized it and decided to add it anyway, despite already pitching the yeast.
    Nothing more ...

    if it's chill haze it should fade as it warms..Gelatin might be able to clear it up

    Thanks guys. Not sure why. Here are two pics: pils glass and a mason jar with direct light
    behind. The beer had been in cold keg for a few weeks so it should have cleared up by now.
    Almost seems worse...

    time will also clear it up.

    Any idea what's up? Would it be too late to put some gelatin in? Anyone have a similar
    experience? Enjoying it but would love it to be clearer to let that beautiful color shine.
    Thanks in advance!-BDm...

    I just found out about a brewing competition and would like to enter this. I've made it twice
    before and it seemed to be drinkable in a short time. I could give it two weeks in the primary
    and two wee...

    Mine turned out really good. It has a bit of sweetness to it, same as a scotch ale would have.
    It has a strong hazelnut and caramel taste too due to my mistake (doubling the speciality
    grains).When I ...

    Anyone tried aging this?Thinking of making one batch for St Patricks Day and maybe brewing it
    in 1-2 weeks from now.it ages fairly well

  • Posted in thread: Raging Red Irish Red Ale on 07-31-2015 at 10:07 PM
    How do you think this will go as a base for say.... aging with Mamajuana soaked roots and tree
    bark straight from the bottle? Thinking about aging it for a few months in the secondary.no
    idea.. never ...
