    ABOUT ME

  • Currently brewing all-grain beers using a 5-gal mashtun with stainless steel braid and using a 6.5-gallon boil. I specialize in Koelsch, Pale Ales and their relatives, Witbiers, as well as Apfelwein-derivatives.

    I started out brewing with a Mr. Beer Kit, then moved on to extract with steeping grain kits, partial mash kits and ultimately custom partial mash and all-grain recipes. Austin Homebrew Supplies is my main supplier, although I have also had good luck with Midwest Supplies, Northern Brewer and Brewmasters Warehouse.

    Hibiscus is a pretty popular ingredient around these parts (Florida). It provides a refreshing

    Many brewers have moved on from sour mashing to kettle souring/sour worting with isolated
    cultures instead of grain because of more predicable results. A kettle sour with Omega

    This sounds a lot like Chi Company to me. Saving a few bucks is not worth the chance of being
    stuck with a lemon. If I were a customer thusly cheated, I would file BBB and credit card
    chargebacks agai...

    I have been using the Tower of Power (module only) in propane-fired RIMS configuration for over
    a year now, and I love mine. I have not noticed any temperature deviations between the
    Brewmometer and t...

    They had some sort of mechanical malfunction with their equipment and haven't produced any in
    several months now.

    We never did make this one.

  • Posted in thread: Question To Those Kegging Their Bucha on 05-13-2015 at 10:19 PM
    I pasteurize my kombucha before kegging so that I don't have that problem, and I don't have to
    worry about infecting my lines.

    How would you describe the green character? Is it yeast bite from suspended yeast or is it
    metabolites like acetaldehyde?

    You can always toss some amylase enzyme into the fermentor - any decent homebrew shop should
    have amylase in powder form (and some have liquid preparations as well). It will work at
    ambient temperatur...
