Be sure you didn't try to bottle condition some of your beers in the fridge. Your bottles need
to be between 65-75 (roughly) during bottle conditioning so the 34-40 you'll find in your
fridge won't al...
Posted in thread: Ah Nuts! (using nuts in brewing) on 04-26-2010 at 01:47 AM
The real question for me right now is whether to try one of these ways of adding nuts (making a
liquor infusion, adding them to the mash, or "dry-nutting") or to just use some extract.

Posted in thread: Samuel Adams Boston Ale Homage on 03-27-2010 at 06:07 PM
As an employee at the SA Boston Brewery, I'd recommend using WLP008, 'East Coast Ale' as they

CO2 is heavier than O2. So you probably had a nice layer of CO2 sitting on top of the beer

So, I brew at my parents' house in Plymouth, MA although I live at my apartment in Boston and I
