I figured I'd repost my favorite recipe from the Recipe's page since those get little in the
way of replies. I'm on my forth patch now and have kicked it up to 'double bourbon, double oak'

I've made this recipe a few times now and I really love the result, so I thought I'd share.
It's inspired by one of my favorite beers, Northern Brewer's Bourbon Barrel Porter. Essentially
you just mak...

My experience with this (I've done it multiple times in experiments) is that it results in an
off flavor, probably the 'clove' spice that mdennytoo mentions. Kind of a a yeasty, spicy
headiness to it....

Plastic kegs are starting be become available and soon may be the only way homebrewers keg
things. At the moment, however, the keg of choice is the Corney. They're easy to work with,

The apocalypse.Seriously, I'm pretty sure nothing bad can happen by over-pitching the yeast. If

I'm trying to understand where you're at right now. You're saying you only want a 'slight fizz'
but whenever I'm done fermenting I essentially have ZERO fizz. Until I prime it in the bottle
or keg it ...

blichmann beer gu...

Are you serious about the 250G?!!! That's a pretty hardcore place to be while not having this
figured out already.I think you're going to have a really hard time trying to do anything other

What type of yeast did you use? When I made my first batch it never lost the yeast flavor (even
when perfectly clear) because I was using bread yeast. As soon as I switched to fermentor's
yeast the pr...
Posted in thread: Good juice choices besides treetop? on 04-10-2014 at 05:49 PM
It's not surprising they can sell the juice so cheap compared to the apples. A lot of the cost
is in spoilage, packaging, and shipping. All of that goes way down when you first make the
juice. Same re...
