  • So I decided one day that I need to do something good to make my mark on the world when I graduate school with a chemical engineering degree. I figured nothing puts a smile on countless faces like beer. I want to learn as much about beer as I can so I can get a job at a brewery.

    Germey: Sorry for such a delayed response. The beer came out quite well.I opened this thread
    back up as i am brewing this again today, which says something in and of itself about your
    recipe. I am sor...

    Cool. I have a large bag, a large pot, and the book. Thanks for your help and your quick reply.

    Hi, I don't have a mash-tun handy today, and I want to figure out how to all-grain without one.
    What is this style of brewing called? I am hoping to find a thread that will break it down real
    simple f...

    Does it seem like most Friends & family use mainstream beers (like Coors Light) to compare/rate
    your home-brews? (sorta like comparing the taste of Ginger Ale to Orange Crush)Yeah I even had
    a kid off...

    IMG, I definitely agree that ***** hops are the necessary substitution for perfection of this
    brew. Also, I used to live in Burlington, and nobody out there understood when I was being
    sarcastic eithe...

    Yeah that's kind of silly to post that you have a secret. Don't you want my friends to enjoy
    drinking your delicious recipe?

    I only bottled this five days ago, but I am a weak man and incidentally this beer tastes quite
    good. I will try to save the rest as long as I can, but I like to sample beers progressively
    throughout t...

    Awesome. I bottled this Saturday, with the final totals amounting to 20 days in the primary and
    a week in the secondary. I am going to wait as long as possible before drinking, but if I know
    myself, a...

    Yooper, the simplest answer is usually correct and your answer to my question about
    fermentability, wine is a good example of both. I feel dumb for asking that really. I think I
    will have to experimen...

    Okay, while waiting for a reply, which didn't take long, I read what Papazian had to say, which
    is NEVER to boil fruit. For the time being I have reached a resolution of this particular
    recipe, but no...
