    From Bettendorf, then Iowa State, now in Tucson. Good to hear there's still some life in the

  • Posted in thread: Baking / cooking with your homebrew? on 12-23-2015 at 12:15 AM
    I found Pub Cakes on my last visit to Cost Plus. Think cake mix that uses beer and butter
    instead of oil and water. I haven't made a batch yet because I'm still a week out from
    bottle-conditioning a p...

    I live in Tucson and I built a fermentation chamber (do a search for Mother of Fermentation
    Chamber) that works quite well. It's not going to get you to lagering temperatures and changing
    out the ice ...

    hops and went ...

  • Posted in thread: Most annoying response when you tell someone you're a homebrewer? on 01-04-2014 at 11:37 PM
    My mom at Christmas, "why would you want to brew your own beer?"After long thought I think the
    best way to respond to this type of response is to turn it back on them. If they like to bake
    things, "Wh...

    Go Cyclones!!!!!Okay, now that I have that out of my system, if you want to just kind of ease
    into the all-grain world, look into doing a few partial mash BIAB batches. The only special
    equipment need...

  • Posted in thread: adding to beer kits ? on 01-25-2013 at 12:50 AM
    It is very hard to help someone add to a kit when we don't even know what it is, if its a
    canned prehopped kit using dried malt extract instead of sugar and using fresh yeast (dried or
    liquid appropri...

    Well, it sounds like an interesting topic, but can potentially open up a new can of worms. I
    mean there are so many things that can be changed/added/subtracted to make a recipe your own.
    And you reall...
