    They may just be my favorite brewery. IPAs usually arn't my first choice but I do really like
    this one. I love the Vienna lager and the Turbo Cougar blonde bock.

  • Posted in thread: Best Book to read about Home Brew? on 08-21-2013 at 09:18 PM
    I really like Radical Brewing. It's a fun read, and gives a lot of great ideas on techniques

    Fermented beverages are one place where I don't understand snobbery. So many of these tastes
    are strange and 'aquired' that it doesn't make since to bash what someone enjoys. If someone

  • Posted in thread: Any reason why you can't mash using hot fruit juice? on 08-18-2013 at 09:20 PM
    Maybe you could mash with water and sparge with apple juice (or vice-versa)? Actually mashing

    before diluting s...

  • Posted in thread: Shelf Life of Crushed Grains? on 08-18-2013 at 12:57 PM
    I've used crushed grain that was in my pantry for 2-3 weeks in a brown paper bag. I didn't
    taste any difference in the final beer. As long as it stayed dry crushed grains keep well, so
    as long as it's...

    I used home depot brass and haven't had any issues with my mash tun. I suppose I wouldnt notice
    the slow lead poisoning happening from the few ounces of brass coming in contact with my beer,
    but I'm n...
