  • I've been brewing off and on for about 8 years, but I've been brewing a batch every 4 weeks for the last 2 years or so. Just started all-grain brewing finally in June 2012. This has been my goal for a long time; to drink 90-95% homebrew. Saves a lot of money (well, if you're just talking ingredients, I try not to think about the equipment investments I've made) but more importantly it is incredibly satisfying to create my own beer. Beers that I feel measure up to quality beers you find at the store. I'm also getting into mead making, with 4 separate gallons so far.

    I recently brewed a version of AB that I found somewhere on this site. Here's what I did. Color

    Brewing a modified version of this as I type. I'm lowering the OG and FG for my tastes. I feel
    like 1.020 is high, but maybe the real beer does finish high. In any case, I'm using the
    original posts s...

    I made my first batch way back in January. I followed the recipe 95% as written. My only change
    was that I peeled the orange and used the strips of zest, and I only added the juice, not the
    pulp or pi...

    Boiling my 2nd batch with all Cascade right now! Loved my first batch using Citra.

    I made my first batch of this back in January and just tried it finally after about 3 months in
    the bottle. Not bad. I've only had two commercially available meads, but this was better than
    one of the...

    I'm about halfway through my keg of this brew. I made it with Centennial to bitter, Citra late
    in the kettle as well as an ounce to dry hop for a week. Lovely brew. Definite repeat. I'm glad
    I didn't ...

    I'm elated that nobody seems to like Hopslam all that much. Maybe next year I'll be able to
    pick up more than a sixer again.That would be nice wouldn't it? Clearly a lot of people like it
    (me, for exa...

    I bitter all my IPAs with Columbus and love it. Try it before you decide anything about it. Its
    not going to be undrinkable or anything.

    All beer that is hyped, is overhyped. Its just beer folks.

  • Posted in thread: Crystal Malt really necessary? on 05-26-2013 at 06:12 PM
    They are fine in some styles. For me they definitely don't belong in IPA at all. I notice most
    IPA recipes usually have some for some reason. But that's just my opinion.
