Posted in thread: Little carbonation problem on 07-11-2014 at 03:07 AM
Hey everyone! Been letting the stout sit for the past month or so. Finally put one in the
fridge 3 days ago and opened it today. It was amazing! The carbonation was perfect and the
flavor was even bet...
Posted in thread: Does my wort need to be at a vigorous boil? on 07-10-2014 at 01:40 AM
it doesn't have to be an insanely vigorous boil or anything. As long as it's a rolling boil
you're good. Also i disagree about getting better hop utilization. It would be negligible if
anything at all...

It's called an analogy. It's a cognitive process of inductive argument. Put in simpler terms,

Gotta love when people type out "PERIOD" and end it with an exclamation point. You should
reread the OP. If someone doesn't really want to talk to me I generally find something better
to do. I don't g...

They weren't unpolite or disrespectful, they simply didn't want to talk brewing. Labeling that
as unfriendly / unhelpful is wrong because it's not their job to be teachers to every person
who walks in...

Last week I brewed a 10 gallon batch of Kolsch with WLP029. After 7 days at 68 degrees,

I think you should just get over yourself. You're not entitled to receive conversation when you
go to a bar; you're entitled to receive a drink for which you pay.Just because the employees at

Well i'm willing to give them another shot. I looked into the brewery a bit more and i see the
owner / head brewer wasn't there. I think he would be more receptive to my questions and
talking about br...
Posted in thread: Secondary necessary for bulk aging? on 07-07-2014 at 03:54 AM
