    Yeast hulls are removed from the yeast with a "Yeast Gin". In 1890, Jebodiah Brewton patented
    his yeast gin, and it could be seen in production use on the sprawling yeast farms of the great
    plains sta...

    All good when I was using their kits! Hefe, dry stout, pale ale, and some others, all ended up
    in the very drinkable to very good range. The hefe I really enjoyed. I used the liquid yeast
    option on th...

    that's a good, crisp logo. I can't imagine it working too well on a bottle (too horizontal) as
    a label, but would make a killer baseball-jersey-style t-shirt logo! Small one on chest, nice
    and big on ...

    I do 5-gal batches in a 6.5 glass carboy, and have done beers up to about 8% ABV, and never had
    krausen reach the airlock. Been close, though :) For me at any rate, less than 8% beers and 5
    gal in a 6...

    With a name like "Taco Mac", of course they have 200 beers on tap :drunk:

  • Posted in thread: Oatmeal Stout on 10-03-2007 at 01:32 PM
    getting to be good weather round here for an oatmeal stout! I like the classic hops you're
    using. Should be a nice compliment to the "harsher" malts. I find oatmeal stouts work well for
    me when I brew...

    I think we are often our own harshest critics. I made a Weizenbock that in my head I wanted to
    taste like Aventinus. It didn't, so I was disappointed. But, everyone else who has tried it has
    liked it....

  • Posted in thread: Brewery names--what's your story? on 09-27-2007 at 07:39 PM
    Perhaps been covered, and I've read some people's stories, but what's the story behind your
    brewery name choice? I'd love to know. Mine is "Brick Box Brewery". I live in a duplex, and
    together with my...
