  • Partial Masher -- lack the space to really do all grain.
    Got into it because my Dad brewed, and I had a friend that I'd brew with. Eventually got my own equipment and have been brewing since then.

    I do own an 8 gallon kettle so I do full boils of 5 gallon batches now, and have been pretty pleased with my partial mash set up (essentially the same one Deathbrewer describes)

    Yeah recipe would help. If you used a lager yeast (which is quite likely if you were doing a
    Hoptoberfest clone) it would probably be lacking in esters that judges are consciously (or
    unconsciously) l...

    So while newish (been brewing for 5 years) I brew between 80-120 gallons a year so I figure
    that qualifies me to throw a couple good screw ups out there. My friend and I who brew together
    most of the ...

    I did a "bourbon barrel" recipe I made by soaking two ounces of oak chips in a cup of bourbon
    during the primary fermentation. I aged it in Secondary for a month. Like someone else on here
    mentioned t...

    Good to know about funky belgians. I actually want to do a Flemish sour red sometime soon.
    Anyone got pointers for it besides funky hops?

  • Posted in thread: Hops gone bad? on 07-05-2011 at 10:29 PM
    So a friend of mine who I brew with from time to time is taking to the road for about two or
    three months, and as such, I reap the benefits of his departure by receiving all his as yet
    unused grain an...

  • Posted in thread: West Coast IPA? on 07-05-2011 at 10:23 PM
    So perhaps this is a Neophyte question, but what's the difference between a "west coast" IPA

    a nice fres...

    $5 if you drink it.Get me like this :drunk: and that might seem like a good idea.
