Posted in thread: Kahlua Anyone? on 03-20-2012 at 05:11 PM
Boiled off coffee? Eep. I'm going to try this but I'm going to use a cold brew because I can't
imagine boiling being helpful to the flavor.
Posted in thread: Chill Haze, for realz on 02-05-2012 at 07:42 AM
I guess it's immaterial to say that somehow without trying too hard I get crystal clear beers
at temps down to low fridge temps. I don't know what temperature exactly. The things I've
changed are usin...

Aw, I thought you were in Portland, Oregon at first. I am near there and have found a great
source for stuff fairly locally. But you're not in Oregon! I borrowed as much as I could when I

Posted in thread: Any Kitchenaid stand mixer owners? on 01-25-2012 at 05:25 AM
My mom has always had a Kitchen Aid, and my grandmother did too. We have one of the Artisan
models. I'm not 100% happy with it. It groans if I try to put a big batch of bagel dough in it

Posted in thread: Homemade LME — is it possible? on 01-25-2012 at 05:19 AM

it in some ...
Posted in thread: Second brew gone bad at 2 wks in bottle on 12-24-2011 at 06:51 AM

harvested, but it just occurred to me to brew with them, since I liked the beer I had a few
months ago w...
Posted in thread: Thunderstruck Pumpkin Ale (AG and Extract versions) on 12-24-2011 at 04:25 AM
I just made the extract version of this - I tasted on at 10 days and it's awesome! Thanks so
much for the recipe. It shocked me how much it tastes like pumpkin pie. Next year I'll make
some earlier fo...
Posted in thread: Knowing what you know now, what would you buy starting out? on 11-06-2011 at 07:09 AM
Fermometers on all carboys/buckets! I would have gotten a normal hydrometer container to do
measurements in, in addition to having a wine thief to get it out of the bucket. I still have
to get one, ac...
