  • I began with a brewers best kit and progressed from there. That was 6 years ago. Now a brew like a champ. My liver probably hates me. That or loves me. Not sure how that all works. I all grain brew. Each time I brew, I seem to learn something. Each time I drink when I brew, I forget something.

    I'm also curious about this one. I'm in Az having a few of these this week. I noticed that you
    didnt put any wheat in it. That might help your malt profile/mouthfeel. Also, what if you
    bittered with C...

    yes yes yes. Drinking a kill the golfers now. How long to you find the aging process to be. I'm
    a primary only kind of guy myself, so I'm good with that method. just curious how long it takes
    to be re...

    The peach wheat turned out fantastic. It needed rounding, so i added about 2 shots of peachtree
    to the keg. It ended up taking first place in our Oktoberfest competition. I'm convinced that
    this is th...

    This turned out amazing. I used 8 oz beech smoked malt in mine. Sucking this down quickly.

    Isn't that where this stuff becomes useful? will help, but probably not a whole lot when the
    weather gets down to 14 degrees outside.

    I use a direct fired Blich MT, you definitely have to fire / recirc it several times in a 60 -
    90 min. mash, but have had no issues doing that. I don't use a pump, though.Without a pump, do
    you just h...

    Okay, so a friend of mine bought a top tier system from blichmann. It has three kettles. We ran
    it for the first time today and made a 10 G batch. I had a lot of trouble keeping a consistent
    mash temp...

    update. I kegged this on Sunday without putting any campden tablets or potassium sorbate in.
    Cold temp should be sufficient. I ramped it up for 24 hours on gas at 35 psi. It tastes great.
    Could use a ...

    I'm in the process of making a peach cobbler beer. I added 20 tea bags of "perfect peach" to
    flame out. I just racked it yesterday on to 8 lbs of frozen peaches. I was impressed by the
    flavor that the...

    I just mashed 10 glazed doughnuts (was a dozen, but I ate 2) and though I'd share my
    experience. The mash tasted great. Less doughnut than I thought there would be, but it was
    definitely there. I did ...
