  • Started homebrewing with my brother around the summer of 2009....I think. Did just a few brews over the next couple years. Early 2012 I started doing a lot more and am going strong.

    Pick some and make a tea. See what its like. They could be ornamental as well and maybe not
    good for brewing.

    Just curious....the names of beers, after a competition is over, are posted alongside the
    winners. As is my immature, school-boy humor I'm considering entering some beers with
    horrifically inappropria...

    Looks way better. Don't be afraid to take a lil away from the 60 minute addition and compensate

    Still doesn't sound like much head space.I've done close to 1 gallon ferments in a gallon jug
    with wine yeast and had no problem. Wine yeast (at least the ones I've used) make very little

    I'm surprised Fulton was only mentioned once. It's one of my favorite stops after a baseball
    game.Yeah, Fulton is great. I'm surprised 612 got mentioned twice. This may be blasphemy but I
    have not bee...

    Attempting to resurrect an old thread. Sociable Cider Werks makes this: not as stout-like as
