  • I started getting interested in brewing in college and a few years ago I went to my local home brew store and bought the book "How To Brew" by John Palmer. A few months later my wife bought me the beginning homebrewing kit for my birthday. My first brew was in May of 2004 and I've been hooked ever since.

    Anyone have neighbors about 15 feet away? I wish I had a couple acres of property but I'm in

    So I'm brewing right now, I'm currently drinking a Stone Sublimely Self-righteous Ale from a
    growler fill and I'm a couple beers in on a New Year's Day. I just had the urge to go and
    instead of walkin...

    If you are using a bucket, maybe the lid didn't seal all the way and it fermented anyway. Even
    a small leak in the lid will have no movement in the airlock. I bet it's fine and done.

    You can ferment in korny kegs, but the purpose is not for taking that keg and hooking it right
    up to the draft system. It's more for the reason that it is a stainless vessel. You can put an
    airlock on...

Hey Smiph (sp?),

I bought my first brew kit this weekend. Excited to get started.

Hey Bryan,

Hope all is well. Brewing is off to a good start here in CO. My first brew, a porter, turned out quite well and now I have a Paulaner style hefe in the fermenter which I'm planning to bottle tomorrow.

I was hunting around for a Jeremiah Red clone and I came across a thread where you had suggested a recipe for someone. Did you ever try out this recipe? I'm thinking I'll either try that or IPA for my next.

Thanks Bryan,

I just found your recipe list on your website, impressive. I'm going to have to try your fat tuba pale ale sometime.
