  • I was born in Illinois at the age of 3. By the time I was 20, I was brewing my own beer. Of course, it had to sit in secondary until I was old enough to consume it.

  • Posted in thread: Beer ready to keg, thinking about adding fruit on 04-12-2015 at 04:37 AM
    Fresh fruit carries three big risks: pesticides, bugs, and bacteria.1. Pesticides: A good
    washing *should* mitigate this down to an acceptable level (since you'd just as soon eat them
    raw).2. Bugs: Wa...

    White Labs WLP080 Cream Ale Yeast worked quite well for me, if you can get it.

    Kegged my egg protein beer a few days ago. As I mentioned earlier, I added the egg protein
    power to the last 5 minutes of the boil, and it instantly solidified into large clumps about
    the consistency ...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone brew 5 gallon batches on your kitchen stove? on 03-10-2015 at 03:07 AM
    I used to do stove-top boils with extract recipes. I was only able to span a single burner, and
    couldn't get to a rolling boil with 5 gallons. Instead, I would pre-boil about 3 gallons of
    water, put i...

    Brewed it yesterday. Added the egg protein in the last 5 minutes of the boil, and it clumped up
    and solidified almost immediately (about the consistency of a hard-boiled egg). I'd be
    surprised if anyt...

    Thanks all. I'm not in it for the protein, just the egg flavor. Egg protein was the best I was
    able to come up with. 2 days until the mad science commences.If this works, I might have a new
    winter sea...

    Add Hershey's syrup to the keg/bottles. :-)Or, alternatively, a combination of lactose and
    cacao nibs/unsweetened baker's chocolate powder. Lots of techniques available, and open to
    debate. My persona...

    Time heals all wounds, and rescues some beers. My vote is to rack into a fresh vessel and hope
    the residual yeast can do some clean-up. And dry-hop the crap out of it, regardless of style.

  • Posted in thread: What happens when stuck fermented wort???? on 03-05-2015 at 05:55 AM
    OK let's see another scenario, 2 weeks have past in primary and due to low temperature still
    the FG is let's say 1.020 when it should have been 1.010? Do you/ Can you rack to secondary and
    wait for th...

    One "gotcha" with fruit concentrates is the addition of preservatives. They're meant to kill
    off microbes (such as yeast), and could have a negative side effect on your fermentation.If you
    got an "all...

If a watched pot never boils, doesn't that imply that watching a boiling pot will cool it down faster? Note: Reading this post increases your BAC by 50%.
