  • I'm getting ready to be a dad. I'm trying to prepare for that and get a few last minute brews under my belt before my schedule tightens up. Brewing is my medicine, it just calms me down and helps me keep in touch with a part of myself that doesn't exist in my work life.

  • My wife bought us a kit to try out together. That was 5 years ago. Now I'm obsessed. I have a four tap keg-o-rater, a RIMS system, I grow hops, harvest yeast and take on all sorts of weird side projects.
  • It's wide open right now. I have 3-5 recipes I'm kicking around but with it being summer I'm thinking crisp and hoppy or maybe some sort of wheat.

    Malting companies carefully monitor the level of pesticide application on the grains they are
    purchasing. Growers selling to maltsters have to comply with these expectations or lose their
    contracts. O...

    I'd do a bunch of pale ales with just MO and 5% crystal 40-60. Then I might throw in a dry
    stout or two and some Scottish ales kept simple would be nice as well. For the Scottish you
    could use all MO ...

  • Posted in thread: What is your ideal ABV? on 01-16-2015 at 02:56 AM
    I'm an outlier here. My target is usually 4.5-5% ABV. Often going lower than this. Right now I
    have 5.0%, 4.8%, 4.1% and 3.0% beers on tap. I really don't like to get drunk very often at all
    and I lik...

  • Posted in thread: Azacca hops on 01-13-2015 at 01:54 PM
    I'm still holding out on providing a description of the batch I brewed with these hops. I used
    some specialty grains that were fairly old, and probably inappropriate for the beer anyhow. The
    gravity s...

    I use a BC. I always load it then hand crank. Mine has worn down quite a bit but its about 6
    years old and has run about 1500lbs of grain. It stopped grabbing the grain at the tight gap I
    like running...

    This afternoon I brewed up a Honey Ginger Ale. Everything went pretty smooth after I repaired
    some equipment that was damaged last time I brewed. Just before I started the boil my wife
    popped out the ...

  • Posted in thread: Honey malt in Ginger Ale on 12-30-2014 at 06:21 PM
    The title sums it up pretty well. I am going to make a ginger ale and ramp up the ginger a
    touch, compared to previous batches. So I thought I'd throw in some Honey Malt to balance
    things out and brin...

    That looks good. It's a compression fitting. I struggle getting this set because you need a
    clean cut on the end of your pipe. It should be simple if you attach it to a T because you
    won't need to cut...

    I don't have any photos of my manifold. I need to replace some parts in my rims tube, they are
    due to be here on Monday. When I pull things out for that I will take a couple pictures if you
    haven't al...

Hey you got me thinking about filtration, so i did some research, and its exactly how we do it at the winery, even the final filter. It dose remove hop resin, but also removes a lot of other shit that can make a beer turn bad. Spending my Friday night reading about beer. Just ordered some RIMS parts!!!!
