  • Thanks to my mother, last Christmas I started my brew career.greatest decision ever besides Christ and my wife. My first brew was a Belgian tripel and it turned out amazingly. Since then I have made black Ipa which failed horribly, then a vanilla Ipa, a French oak chipped cream stout with burbon tones, a winter ale similar to Highland brewing's (asheville) cold mt winter ale-cinnamon vanilla cherries and nutmeg , a berry weizen made with real blue berries, a pumpkin ale for our wedding that actually turned out to be a nice tripel. Not exactly how that happened but it was delicous. rnrnAnd am currently invested in what I hope to be a dark Belgian esb with a small hint of almond.rnrnUpdate: christmas 2013 my wonderful wife bought me a kegging system. she was excited for me to start kegging but more excited that there will be no more bottles. but the metal shelf she bought me is full of glass on the bottom shelf, hehe, can't give them up just yet.
  • I just brewed a pretty good winter ale. I took the general Idea from charlie in joy of homebrewing and added more vanilla and honey.
  • empty. trying to figure out this kegging system.
  • Undergoing intense therepy VIA one step.
  • Left over winter ale. Amber base brewed with 2 sticks of cinnamon, 2 cut and scrapped vanilla beans and a 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, and organic cherry juice.
  • why is My keg frozen?! Damn you mini fridge thermometer!

    Do you think it would matter if I used a whole vial of yeast in a smaller batch? More yeast
    eating less sugar?

    Awesome. I thouht aerating the wort was a bad thing, and the paint strainer is a great ideal.
    Thanks for the knowledge guys.

    I've read that bagging pellet hops cuts down on aroma and ibus. I'm wondering if I can boil my
    hops at the specified times and then strain them before racking to primary?As far as I've read

    I ended up making a 1.5L starter with a vial of WP002 and WP007 (the LHBS didnt have 2 vials of
    the recommended yeast). We oxygenated and then let it rip. It got all the way down to 1.028,
