  • Posted in thread: What's the % ABV? on 10-24-2011 at 04:10 PM
    I made a very strong beer with 12.2% ABV. I decided to tame it down so I made another beer with
    4.2% ABV and blended the two in a 50/50 blend by volume. So equal parts of each beer. I want to

    I've purchased over 150 lb from them. Good folks, easy to work with and good prices. If you are
    close to Portland, it rocks.

    A couple of ideas for your consideration regarding the cause and a course of action but first,
    how did you pitch the yeast? Did you create a starter and let it go to a full krausen before
    pitching? Wa...

    Good grain and a good price. Many of the local breweries use Great Western 2-row as their base
    malt. Local Home Brew Shops in Portland sell it for between $42-$48 per 50lb bag. What is
    shipping going ...

    All very good suggestions. I personally think the food at Widmer is excellent and the beers are
    good as well. Hopworks is a great place but a smashing success and a bit hard to get into
    sometimes. Rog...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone using BeerSmith regularly ? on 12-08-2008 at 04:36 PM
    After years of homebrewing I finally decided it was time for a program to help me with the
    record keeping. I was surprised to find that Brewsmith has much more and even though I have
    only had it a mon...

    In general, I do not like the taste of chlorine which is why I do not disinfect with bleach.
    Good/bad are relative. To me it is about the taste so I try to eliminate what I consider a bad
    taste. Hope ...

    Water is by far the largest component of your beer - either by volume or by weight. The mineral
    content of your brewing water as well as the pH have a huge impact on the taste of the product
