    ABOUT ME

  • Cross Street Irregulars
  • I needed a hobby since my job (mainly the company) was draining the life out of me. My wife told me you love beer and love cooking, why not brew your own beer. One trip to the LHBS and that was it. Got my starter equipment and it has been an obsession since.

    Look into designing great beers. That's where I learned my baiscs. Great read.

    Also, don't know how i missed this, really no need for flaked oats and flaked barley. Pick one
    and run with it. There are differences which I quick google search will explain. I have used
    both in reci...

    So...maybe replace the black patent with the roasted barley? I could do that, drop it to 1oz,
    and still easily be within the proper ABV...changes it very little. And 1oz is only 3%. I'll
    look at uppin...

    I'm trying not to buy more LME than I need, because I don't want any to go to waste. I'll be
    getting 1lb for this brew, and 1lb for a second brew. I'll think about just buying 3lbs, and
    put 1-1/2 in e...

    I was wondering about that. I was thinking, too, my straight sugar was too large of a
    percentage of my fermentables. I could up my dark munich to 4, my chocolate to 6, and my black
    patent to 3. Then d...

    only a guess..but with 8 oz of sugars in a 1 gallon batch (what i think are almost 100%
    fermentable) your beer may come out extremely dry.

    I have used the shake and crank method before with mixed results. If the beer is cold, yes
    crank it to 30 and do some rolling until you hear the CO2 stop going in. Then let settle for at
    least a few h...

    for what its worth, I have heard these have a finite lifespan. For the cost, I think it may be
    better to buy new. On the flipside, I have the 1800 one and its going strong for 2 years now.

    offtopic for IslandLizard...if you ever need one, the restaurant store on kane street in
    baltimore usually stocks them.

  • Posted in thread: Need some input on first Red Ale recipe on 08-17-2016 at 08:10 PM
    you can try some carared to get some color.Definitely based on your yeast and hop selection you
    should get spiciness and drynessI don't think the grist will yield that much sweetness, but
    that's only ...
