Favorite beer has to be a Marzen, preferably Paulaner. Just finished off a liter tonight!Bike
is a Roadstar 1600 - God created the combustion engine for us to use - no need to pedal :-)
Posted in thread: High Gravity Brew - no carbonation in a bottle on 08-08-2012 at 04:31 AM
I also had similar issues with a Bourbon Baltic Porter - OG was 1.084, FG was 1.016. I did not
re-pitch, and for that it took 6 months to carbonate. But in the end it was completely worth it
Posted in thread: Outdoor brewing in summer on 07-15-2012 at 01:18 PM
I brew all the time at high summer temps. Start usually around 8am so the brewday doesn't
extend too far into the afternoon heat. Did a double decoction last year when the drought temps
hit around 110...

I brew alone...
Posted in thread: Pliny Brewday....not like any other beer. on 05-08-2012 at 02:52 AM
I brewed a PTE clone several months ago. It was my most expensive 5 gallon brew to date, all in

Posted in thread: Has anyone brewed with mango? on 05-04-2012 at 02:31 AM
I also used mango in the secondary. Basically pureed it, then boiled it to sanitize, then

re-fermentation is compl...
Posted in thread: Nitrogen gas mix on 02-22-2012 at 10:54 PM
I have a nitro setup as well. The typical beer gas mix is 75% N2/25% CO2. Thus driving the
lines at around 30 PSI is needed not only to push the beer through the stout restrictor plate,
but also to ma...
