I'm currently living in Thailand hoping to brew up some beer (or more likely a gruit-like
beer). I have access to raw sorghum and rice (not extract), local yeast (used for rice brandy),
but no hops. I...
Posted in thread: Wrong yeast for Hefeweizen on 04-06-2010 at 06:21 AM
So it's almost midnight and I just now realized I picked up the wrong yeast. Instead of Wyeast
3068 Weihenstephan Weizen, it seems I picked up a pack of Wyeast Pacman 1764. I don't have much

I entered an American Pale Ale and a Belgian Blonde. Not quite ready, but I felt kinda guilty

Yup, that's the one bhatch. I found out late in the game. After sampling, I've decided to sit
on these ones for a while rather than rush it. I think they taste great at this stage, but the
size is a p...

Thanks OD. I understand that, and considering the less-than-ideal time available, I'm trying to

Dear all,I uncovered a homebrew contest entry just last week that will be held the first week
