You sound just like me a few months ago. I started on Mr. Beer. Brewed a couple of batches and
moved onto 5 gallon batches. I think I had 15 gallons of beer brewed before they were even

I am still pretty new to home brewing and I haven't brewed a beer in 5 months or so. Back when
I was brewing heavily, I brewed a cream ale, an autumn ale and a Fat Tire clone. I conditioned
them for t...
Posted in thread: Beer in fermenter since June 7... Too long? on 08-09-2012 at 08:19 PM
I brewed a batch of beer on June 7. Gravity was still too high after 2 weeks, so I let it ride.
Here it is now August 9, and I haven't checked it since. Has it been on the yeast cake too
long, or will...

Until last night I had never had more than 3 homebrews in one sitting. Last night I probably
had a dozen or so cream ales. Right before I went to bed, I had the raging Sh*ts. Horrible lol,
I was sweat...

My first two brews were both kits from Midwest Supplies. My first was Liberty Cream Ale, and my

Thank you!If I used the calculator correctly, I got around 80% efficiency. I'm not exactly sure

Posted in thread: anyone that uses austin homebrew see this? on 05-23-2012 at 10:07 PM
I love AHS. I was using Midwest (which were great) but AHS's shipping is ridiculously cheap
compared to Midwest. It costs $16 to get one recipe kit shipped to MO from Midwest.
