    Scraggybeard:Wow, good guess! Yep, it's the Frederick-Miller spring right by Lion's Tap. The
    Oktoberfest I brewed just started fermenting yesterday so I'll have to wait a while to find out
    how it tast...

    I just finished brewing an AG beer with water from a natural mineral spring in Eden Prarie, MN.
    I've never had issues using spring water (either bottled or straight from that spring) but of

    Thanks for responding, Bellybuster! I am tempted to try and fish the thermowell out since it's
    propped up against the side of the carboy and the stopper is maybe about 6 inches from the
    opening of the...

    Just finished brewing my fall BIAB 'AG24 Oktoberfest' Lager and unfortunately (being tired as
    it was after 2 AM here), I accidentally pushed my thermowell with rubber stopper attached right

    Mr. Denn...

    I don't think a few hours of indirect ambient light would cause any noticeable harm. I believe
    it would take a few days to weeks for it to start to 'skunk' the beer.

  • Posted in thread: Mystery IPA ??'s on 02-14-2015 at 07:00 PM
    Hard to say exactly which one as a lot of IPA's have that flavor profile but it sounds similar
    to Bells Two Hearted out of Michigan. That IPA is bursting with flowery hop aroma and that same
    hop punch...

    I don't know why but when I think of Washington state and beer those silly Rainier cans with
    legs always come to mind. ;)Actually, I think of Washington as the nation's hop basket. I think

    I make a raspberry wheat and I add one 49 oz can of Vintner's Reserve Raspberry Purée to a 5
    gallon batch and it is just the right amount for me. It gives a nice tart raspberry flavor
