  • My friends and I always talked about homebrewing, but never really went ahead with anything. That changed when I got a basic homebrewing setup from my buddy as a wedding gift. May 24th 2010 we brewed our first batch which is an American Cream Ale from extract. I hope as I get into this hobby more I can learn to do all grain mashes and make some very tasty brews. Update: I've brewed some all grain batches with my buddies and the result were fantastic all but one time. Now I have 2 kids and have almost no time to brew. I'm currently planning on brewing some mead in a week or so

    the boil, 1/4tsp of vanilla, 1/4 tsp of maple flavor at flame out. Smells amazing.I will say
    that I don'...

    I wish I could remember which thread it was, but on the GM forums I read about this poster who
    claimed to have been infected with botulism from his mead because he made it with raw honey. I
    didn't thi...

    I'd give it a couple weeks before doing anything rash. You just diluted the ABV to 2/3 of what
    it was before, so the yeast may well jump back to life and start fermenting the cider you've
    just added. ...

    New update: So after cold crashing it for a couple weeks I finally racked it into another 1
    gallon carboy. The sediment didn't go down as much as I would have liked. After racking I ended
    up with a li...

    Update: It's been cold crashing in my fridge for over a week. Sediment has only compacted a
    little. How long should I give it? If it doesn't go down to an ideal level do I have any
    options or should I...

    New Update: Just did a gravity reading and it's at 1.050. If I remember right the max this
    yeast could do is 1.040. It's not quite 3 weeks yet so I'm inclined to wait to see if it will
    get down 1.040....

    Thanks for the advice and encouragement guys. That thread link gave me all the info I need. I'm
    going to give it go.:)

    Well after hearing this I might hold off until I have some extra money to burn on sour
    equipment. Would it be worth my while maybe to try it in a 1 gallon carboy? $5 I can do.

  • Posted in thread: Sour Fears. on 07-17-2012 at 09:02 PM
    So I've been really curious about trying to due a wild brew/sour on a small scale. The only
    commercial example I've ever tried have been Blue Moon Farmhouse Ale and Lindeman's Framboise
    (which I know ...
