  • I am a lover of good beer and good music. Allman Brothers Band definitely on the top of the list, as well as assorted bluegrass musicians and jazz. I love beer from all over the world, having some of the best in the Czech republic when I went through a few summers ago. I hope to someday open a brewing store or work in a brewery.

  • Posted in thread: How much time in bottle? on 12-23-2008 at 04:40 AM
    Just a quick question on how much time in the bottle is good. I made an IPA about a month ago,
    a week and a half in the primary and 2.5 weeks in the secondary and I'm going to bottle it
    tomorrow, in h...

  • Posted in thread: JAO just bottled, few questions on 12-16-2008 at 03:48 AM
    There was also a very alcoholy taste to it, and it felt very warm in my stomach for about 30
    seconds after drinking. Didn't do a hydrometer reading on this batch, but it seems a little
    high (not that ...

    So my JAO was just bottled up, read the newspaper through it today. But there were a few signs
    that did concern me. The taste is wonderful, but with a slight off taste which I hope will die
    down. But ...

    Yes, juvinious, that's the one. It just seems odd to me that bottling would take place after
    only 10 days in the fermenter. The bread part I get, we just use yeast for it now. But wouldn't
    bottling th...

    So while perusing the library here at school I happened upon this book in the shelves. Very
    interesting to say the least, a must read for everyone who makes mead. One especially caught my
    eye, An Exce...

  • Posted in thread: JAO clearing and bottling on 12-01-2008 at 03:10 PM
    So the JAO 1-gallon that I started a month a a few weeks ago cleared over a week ago. I was
    wondering if I should wait the 2 months, although the recipe states that when it clears, it's
    good to go. Wo...

    Sounds like a good recipe to me. I would advise (with my background in forestry) to wait until
    the summer to try out any blackberry recipes though. Mid/late summer is the peak time for
    blackberry frui...

    So after my first beer was done, a pumpkin spice ale, I got to thinking about reasons it went
    wrong and I came across one that might explain the sour taste and smell coming from the beer.
    When pouring...

  • Posted in thread: Ahhhh, damn it....Ale problems.... on 11-25-2008 at 10:11 PM
    So just popped open the first Pumpkin Spice Ale today after 1.5 weeks in the bottle. There were
    sludgy strings which I assume to be yeast in the glass when poured and a super sour smell. It
    was in the...

  • Posted in thread: Secondary with IPA? on 11-20-2008 at 07:54 PM
    Thanks for all the input. I'm going to be using 2 oz. of Cascade for the dry hop. What I was
    planning on doing was leaving it in the primary for a week to a week and a half, then
    transferring to the s...
