  • Got into brewing from a friend, although i had to shoot in the dark with no help and just some videos on the internet. Im a diy kinda guy mostly trying to find the cheapest way to do this without causing the quality to suffer.
    I Mostly make up recipes now that i have brewed for a while. I really like to experiment with all different types of beer recipes. Favorite game is lets see if it will ferment.
    i got a pretty simple setup for all grain brewing and seems like everyday i find more stuff that i need. my wife calls my obsession my other woman lol. current setup is a 10 gal rubbermaid cooler, A propane Burner and 7.5 gallon aluminum pot (i know), a couple 6 gal buckets a 5 gal glass carboy and a bottling bucket with hundreds of deschutes bottles that i have been collecting over the last year and a 1 gal growler that i use to pitch yeast in due to lack of options. looking to make a yeast stir plate soon and maybe get some old kegs to convert to upgrade my diy equipment

    Wow, that looks amazing! How much did it cost to make the trellising system that you have
    there? I am going to definitely do something similar.

    Been fighting this all summer. Te leaves on my hops keep turning yellow and then dying! I'm not
    sure what's going on. I have fertilized with manure and I use miracle grow. The weird thing is
    that the ...

    Yeah I do, but maybe I should add a few more? It has one large one in the middle. That was how
    it came from the Home Depot. I also am using a potting mix that drains pretty well, but like I
    said it po...

    Bigben thanks for posting this recipe. I want to try at an Irish Death clone as it is one of my
    favorites. I'm going to use this as my base, however I think I might hold back on some of the
    hops becau...

    Exciting news! I spent some time this past weekend with a guy who was formerly a brewer for Mac
    & Jack's. Since he no longer works there he was more than willing to share information about M
    & J's. He...
