    ABOUT ME

  • Recently (June 2012) got "back" into homebrewing, did one extract kit 12 years ago, two more about 6 years ago. Am full in now, based on the awesome results I've which are largely due to online resources like this forum. Have brewed 9 batches since June 2012, building my pipeline. 5 of these batches are at drinking age now, 4 are conditioning.

    Are you basing your comment on experience? I remember now I've topped off batches with spring
    water, when...

    Sorry if already covered here, but if in a hurry and don't have time to boil water for washing,
    anyone worried about using bottled spring water or bottled purified water? I know bottled
    distilled wate...

    I have been using bottled water for washing yeast for 1 year with no problems,and for my slant
    starters,must be clean to hold up in a closed bottle,?That's what i'm hoping. Distilled bottled
    water I'd...

    I've just started trying to save and re-use some yeast cakes. I went with a shortcut of this
    route: just used a 20oz bottle of spring water in the carboy, swirled to mix all, and then
    poured into 3,...

    I've read, and experienced, that star san left open will keep for a couple weeks. When it
    starts to get cloudy it's done. In a spray bottle it keeps much longer, weeks to months. I've
    also noticed it ...

    Just bottled and waxed 56 bottles of Kate the Great. 30 are bourbon oaked and 26 are Port
    oaked. Both green beers taste amazing. Now they'll be boxed and stored for 6 to 8 months. (If I
    can stand it t...

    I just made northern Brewers all grain wee heavy and did a suggestion from BYO... I collected a
    gallon of the first runnings and boiled it down to a syrup, and added back to boil. Going to

    Would like some advice on the oaking. I split my 5 gallon batch into 2, 3 gallon better
    bottles. In one, i dropped in an 8" french oak medium toast spiral, that i soaked in port for
    about 3 months. In...

    Mine slowed way down after 4 days with the air temperature at 66 in the fermenter in a full

    is now at 68...
