  • I had been wanting to brew for years and I randomly came across some free carboys. I borrowed pots and buckets until I had the needed stuff to brew. Once I brewed I was hooked. I brew all grain on a 5 gallon 3 vessel system that I've built up over time. I love to brew American ales and age specialty ales on wood. I'm a big seasonal beer drinker so I usually brew to the season and brew various styles within the season. I've been brewing for 4 years and I continue to get better, expand and upgrade my equipment, and come up with some pretty good recipes. I just got into kegging about a year ago and it's great to have the freshest IPA's at home that you can't find anywhere else. Homebrewtalk has been a saving grace! This forum is awesome.

    Life is so much easier when the wife is on board. My wife has gone from a miller lite drinker,
    to pale ales, and now to IPA's. She buys me gift cards to the lhbs and the in-laws have bought
    me kegs, c...

    Bobeer and 1977, What I can tell you is that everyone told US that summers will reduce your
    sales. We didn't believe that. Now, with taverns, it makes sense that people would go out
    during the summer ...

    Thanks for all the information you give about the biz! It's very interesting to read. A friend
    and I were putting together a business plan to open a startup nano a few years back but decided
    to wait o...

    First of all. Good luck man! It's nice to clear the ole noggin every once in a while. I think
    you'll really enjoy the time away. Keep up posted! I should do something like this too just for
    the sake o...

  • Posted in thread: how does bad beer happen? on 05-26-2015 at 07:35 PM
    The big ones for me are fermentation temp control, oxidation, yeast pitch amount, good brewing
    water, sanitation, and the crush when you're milling your own grain. If you get all those down
    you'll mak...

    It took me a couple tries to get the pressure right, but it works well. I've only opened them a
    few hours to a day later and the carb was good, but really... where could the carbonation go
    once the bo...

    This. I will never boil sugar rack to the botteling bucket ever again. Bottling from the keg
    works out awesome.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ln3sGEmfijsHey, that looks simple enough... How

  • Posted in thread: kegging half and bottling half on 05-19-2015 at 07:29 PM
    No, there is still a bunch of yeast in suspension... more than enough to get the job done. I've
    heard people say they take a little longer to carb, but haven't found this to be the case in
    practice.sw...

  • Posted in thread: kegging half and bottling half on 05-19-2015 at 05:53 PM
    so if I cold crash the whole batch in the fermentor I shouldn't have any issues racking over
    enough yeast to carb it naturally in the bottle?

  • Posted in thread: kegging half and bottling half on 05-19-2015 at 01:26 PM
    I split the cost of a batch of IPA with a friend. He has to bottle his half and I want to keg
    mine. I usually cold crash IPA's before I keg and force carb so I can drink it fresh asap. This
    is my budd...
