  • I'm work in the field of emergency services, as a paramedic, in New Hampshire. I've had the chance to live in Europe for 2 years and taste many of the brews that Northern Switzerland and Southern Germany have to offer. Something I would go back and do all over again if given the chance.

  • A buddy of mine sponsored a club league basketball team I played for while living in Switzerland. He brewed THE BEST beer I have ever tasted. Since then, I've been hooked on refining the process to brew something close. I'm currently using a large Coleman cooler with a CPVC manifold with 2 large 40 qt pots to go along with my turkey fryer.

  • Posted in thread: Biab, wow! on 11-17-2015 at 12:12 AM
    I love BIAB. Between the time savings, it reduces the amount of equipment I have to bring up
    from the basement. I always use a whirfloc tablet at the end of my boil. I've never had an
    issue with a par...

  • Posted in thread: Trying Horizon (hop) for the first time on 11-15-2015 at 06:08 PM
    I'm finally getting around to brewing after a lingering knee issue was finally surgically
    repaired 3 weeks ago. I decided to brew an IPA, bittering with Horizon FWH. I'm also throwing
    in 1 oz of cente...

    Is it in the primary? Secondary?

  • Posted in thread: Is this mold on 09-28-2015 at 09:22 PM
    That's an infection. However I will step to the side and allow those with much more expertise
    in this field to properly help assess the situation. The only tidbit I will say is this:
    generally as long...

  • Posted in thread: September 28 is "National Drink a Beer Day" on 09-28-2015 at 06:13 PM
    If that's the case, I'm going to celebrate for myself and all of my family who can't be here
    today. That's 1,2,3,4...13....glaaaaaggggghhhh.

    Cacao is the natural form of cocoa BEFORE any sugar is added. There is not any sugar (or
    perhaps just a very very small amount) contained within cacao. It has never caused a second
    krausen on any stou...

  • Posted in thread: Why can't I use more bleach? on 09-09-2015 at 01:31 AM
    10% bleach solution. That is, you can dilute 40 oz of water with 4 oz of bleach. Many spray
    bottles will contain the correct markings for such work. But don't go dumping a gallon of
    bleach into a buck...

    I chilled a bottle and popped one open, tonight. Primed perfectly. Healthy nose of the yeast
    characteristics. I couldn't taste the hops, really. It was a lot sweeter than I anticipated,
    even though it...
