  • Got into home brewing in 1995 because, at that time, Central PA was a good beer wasteland. Nothing but domestic and imported pale lagers. I had developed a taste for good beer while in the Army, and wasn't ready to give up, so I went to my library and started reading. That led to a malt extract brewery. After a couple of years, I started brewing partial mashes, then moved to all-grain brewing. rnIn the beginning of 2000, I talked my way into a commercial brewing job, and I worked as a micro and pub-brewer until the end of 2005.rnIt took a few months before I felt the itch again. I brewed the odd batch here and there, just for kicks, but it wasn't until the end of 2006, when we bought our house, that I got right back into the swing of things. Haven't looked back!
  • I'm constantly working on new concepts in historical brewing. There are four or five projects ongoing at present.

    I'd FWH with Willamette to get ~45 IBU then add nothing more until the ferment is complete.
    Then I'd dry-hop the bejeebus out of it with as much EKG as I can stomach (and that, friends,
    is a considera...

    Good, you started a new thread. ;)Like we told you in the other thread, get a sack of Pale Ale
    malt and experiment with modifying that rather than buying 25kg of specialty grains you won't
    even use. S...

    Agreed. Though world-class pilsners are brewed with only pilsner malt and noble hops, I suspect
    you are not equipped to brew lager beer. If your supplier will not or cannot provide
    information on spec...

    I'm wondering why you chaps are crashing and then letting the beer warm again. There's no
    point. It's not like you stand to get more flavor out of the hops that way.Chill it, leave it
    cold, dry hop it...

    Is there a benefit to leaving it in the primary after the fermentation is complete?I'm new to
    homebrew and have just brewed my 3rd extract batch. I've been trying to determine when to
    bottle. I just d...

    Also note that DMS is not a concern with Pilsner malt extract, which has already been boiled to
    drive off DMS precursors. :)I think you can brew 5 US gallons of a nice light ale with those
    ingredients...
