  • Posted in thread: Good easy homebrew for a group brew on 10-09-2015 at 02:33 AM
    I've been home brewing for about 6 months now and have been pretty successful. I've got my
    coworkers excited about home brewing and now my boss has got the idea that we can do a group
    homebrew with th...

    is a golden ale I called Face Palming because it was transferred into a clean, but
    un-sanitized fermenter. It's good stuff.

    5# of cranberries might be a bit overkill. I have never used them in a beer but I feel like it
    would be overpowering on top of the tartness from the beer itself. You can always go back and
    add more cr...

    That's why I'm ditching my therminator for one. Do that with the plate chiller and you're gunna

    It came out like I expected it too, dispite the unsanitized fermenter. I used to keep all the
    brewing equipment outside and ferment in a 15.5 kegs. I stored it upside down at least, but
    there's no tel...

    These are all very good comments lol. I don't sanitize my counter flow wort chiller. I just run
    boiling hot wort through it into my fermenter, then I turn on the cold counter flow water after
    some tim...

    Thanks for the reply. You have valuable ideas to share. You might be right about the #3 pounds
    of Special B. I'll dial that back down to #1.5 or #2 and increase the pale malt to #12.It's a
    little odd ...

    It's okay. A little cloudy, but otherwise fine.

    There is no need at all to remove the pits from them. I've been making farmhouse style ales for
    a long time. Read into that, a farmhouse ale is an ale without a style. That is, in the
    traditional way,...
