  • Mother-in-law bought me a Mr. Beer kit. I made two batches then bought a 5 gallon kit and started brewing partial mash. I have also brewed a Cabernet Sauvignon and just put a batch of Graham's English Cider into primary.

    I am using the basic started set with the big plastic bucket and glass carboy. I just got a few extra 5 gallon buckets and air locks so i can have multiple batches going.

    Going to try out a half-barrel as a brewkettle and do a 10 gallon batch.

    Nottingham seems to be what everyone has lying around. I just mixed up my second batch of this

    I have 20 gallons in kegs and 10 in carboys. Looks like I need to throw a party. I'm trying to
    brew a beer from each BJCP category this year but I can't drink the beer fast enough on my own.

    Forgot to dump the starsan out of the keg before racking to it. I had about a half gallon of
    starsan in there and I didn't realize it until I was almost done racking.

    I read on that US-05 was presumably the same strain as 1056. Can anyone speak to

    I did my first BIAB last weekend. I increased my base malt by one pound to counter efficiency
    losses. I ended up 3 points higher than anticipated. I'll keep adding 1 pound for a few more
    brews but if ...

    I've done a lot worse and still had enough enzymes to get full conversion.

    I'm wondering why I should bother whirlpooling to seperate trub in the boil. Won't it all just
    fall out in primary?

    I leave some star-san in my glass carboy. I've been afraid to do it with the buckets and kegs.I
    do not re-sanitize. I just slosh it around a bit before I use it.
