    ABOUT ME

  • When I'm not making or drinking beer, I'm probably running with the Hash House Harriers to find beer. And when I'm not makin', drinkin', or runnin' to find beer, I'm probably watching either auto racing (NASCAR, F-1, Indy, anything) or something on Sci-Fi channel...(like Doctor Who)

    You can make beer!!! (Just kidding, mostly!)A quick plug into BeerSmith software shows the DME
    and Caramel 10 would have a potential Original Gravity (OG) of 1.061.If you like a hoppy-beer,
    add 1oz at...

    Dry yeast is usually just as good as liquid, there's just not as many varieties, and to go back
    to the OP you can't make a Scottish beer without Scottish yeast. It will be a good beer with 04
    but it w...

    IMHO, I think it's worth the extra $0.10 per bottle to go with the liquid yeast and make a
    better beer. Drying stresses the yeast cells and makes it more likely for them to produce some
    off flavors du...

    From what I've read on the Scottish ales they recommend a clean yeast to allow the malt profile
    to dominate. I've found S-04 to have a distinct English Ale flavor that I don't think fits the
    profile. ...

    I've been wanting to make a scottish ale, so I looked around the recipe database, and even
    download a homebrew podcast that talked about scottish ales.So this is the rough average of the
    various recip...

    how do you split the rhizome without killing it? I just ordered a cascade and mt hood to plant
    (a bit late i know)...My rhizome was shaped like a "V" so it was easy to cut, with a sharp,
    clean/sanitiz...

    any clue what kind they are? plus how do you know the flavor profile or AA%?For the
    health-food-store hops? not a clue. I have heard of people growing decorative hops (why not
    make beer, but oh well.)...

  • Posted in thread: Bulk hops- $20 per pound on 04-27-2008 at 03:50 PM
    soapy beer! i have to agree with above. How good can they be if they are 20 bucks for a pound
    during a hops shortage?Oh no, you wouldn't use them for beer. its like putting the dried
    cranberries from ...

    The company, Frontier, is the same company that sell bulk herbs and stuff like that at health
    food stores, Whole Foods/Wild Oats, etc.In fact, I got my hop plant last year from a nursery
    that sells he...

    I'm growing cascades here in Colorado. These are year-two vines.I dug them up and split the
    rhizome into two plants. (The rhizome was shaped like a "V" so it was easy to split.)The main
    plant has many...
