  • Started out with Brewer's Best extract w/ grain kits (x 4), then made the move to all grain. I use a Bayou Classic outdoor burner with a 40 qt stock pot, a 30' copper IC, an MLT made with a Rubbermaid 5 gal drink cooler and Phils Phalse Bottom, and have two ferm buckets and two carboys. Have brewed APA, English Brown Ale, Hopnog 2010 (Brewers Best holiday recipe), Kolsch, and two all grain "just beer" kits from Austin Homebrew Supply to get started with all grain and work out the kinks.
  • Next in the pipeline (all grain) is AHS Blonde Ale and AHS Belgian White, then I plan to brew Jamil's Extra Special Bitter recipe.

    B) AHS 'just beer" Columbus

    Looking for a new house right now and dreaming up my ultimate brewing space as well. Renting in
    the meantime, so I've had plenty of time to work on projects and think up different ways of
    doing things...

  • Posted in thread: Beer darkens in secondary. Why? on 07-05-2014 at 03:19 PM
    Darkening color is one effect of oxidation. The 15 gallons of head space is your culprit,
    though the addition of juice adds another variable.

    Thanks for the help! Ill work on that in beersmith. I am having some trouble finding Bullion

    I live in St Louis and have had this beer (and I agree it's a good one!) and also have
    attempted to clone a Schlafly beer before (their winter seasonal "Winter ESB"). I have a friend
    who works on the ...

  • Posted in thread: You guys do realize... (overhyped beers) on 06-11-2013 at 03:34 AM
    OK, so best I can tell, the idea here is to compare a couple of beers (presumably by tasting
    them, which is of course, a completely subjective, impossible to quantify thing) to their
    respective "hype"...

    I almost always design my own. Recent exception, I needed a 2nd beer (jockey box has two

    burgers :rockin:) to ...

    the sheet (d...

    A note on this recipe builder: As it is not a program, but rather a file, it must be manually
    updated for things like changes in the alpha acid content of the hops you purchase, adding new
    grains or h...
