Posted in thread: Hops Infusion/Randall Best Practices & Recipes on 04-28-2013 at 11:37 PM
Some friends of mine own a brewpub and have put me to task in finding a hops randall/infusion

related to one ...
Posted in thread: About to start kegging on 10-06-2012 at 06:56 PM
I recently obtained a single-tower, Haier keggerator from a friend who no longer used it, and
I'm ready to convert my home brewing operation into kegs rather than bottling. While the
keggerator came a...

I did a Sam Smith Nut Brown clone from the pages of Beer Captured. Unfortunately, I discovered
it is a tough on to duplicate. The Malt bill lacked serious body, which sadly left a weird,

can see a ...
Posted in thread: Is excessive sediment a problem for fermentation? on 02-09-2011 at 12:14 AM
Should have mentioned that...I used a White Labs WLP029 (German Ale/Kolsch). I didn't use a
starter - didn't think it was necessary for this one. Should also mention the Alt was an
extract kit from No...
