  • A very good friend of mine bought me a brew kit for chrismas back in 2000. That is when I started Singlewide Brew Co. My first brew was a porter from a kit. It tasted great. Is was so good that the 54 12 oz'ers didn't last very long. My friends, myself, and even some cheap beer lovers I didn't know made quick work of my first 5 gals.

    I should mention that singlewide Brew Co. is a small time brewery limited to art of homebrewing.

    I don't believe there is any way to tell variety until they produce hops. I would keep it as a
    hobby and either plant them, give them away, or make them compost. My hop garden is getting
    overrun with ...

    Thanks for posting that. It might have been why my numbers did not make sense for an oatmeal
    stout I made in feb.

  • Posted in thread: Wort chiller build. on 03-13-2011 at 12:44 AM
    For what it's worth. I soldered two 90 degree copper fitting on to my wort chiller. Just incase
    the hoses leaked water (ie h2o getting past the hose clamps) the h2o would drip onto the ground
    and not ...

    Just wanted to second this. I did my 1st all-grain with my new setup. Also 1st time using BS
    for a brew. BS said to heat strike h2o to 166. I had most of my h2o in the tun at 155. I kept
    removing heat...

    I made my 1st batch last summer. Used wine yeast. I did not use any campden or finishing
    additives. I let it age at about 60-65 degrees for almost 3 months in a carboy. I did not add
    any priming sugar...

    Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, hop for a hop (brake his legs so he can't hop).Sorry, I
    couldn't resist.

    Congrads on your 1st AG batch.I finally took the AG plunge last thursday. I too was impressed
    how easy it was. I got 1.044 w/ about 6.0 or 6.5 gals. My biggest mistake was not stiring the

    Mind if I add my .02.... I ferment in the primary until the bubbles commence to about 2 a
    minute (about 3 to 4 days). Then I leave it in the secondary for 1 week. I read this guideline
    in a homebrew b...
