  • Tried this hobby years ago. It did not work out for me then. Got a kit Xmas '10 and found it to be better than the last try. I did 10-12 extract batches, then switched to all grain. I have done about 30 batches so far with some very good results, some clunkers along the way also.

    I may have got this right after all. I have airlock action in both buckets. One is very
    vigorous the other not so much, but I have buckets that side by side with everything the same
    do not have the sa...

    Here is an oh **** moment for the folks out there. Brewing a ten gallon batch today, two 5
    gallon buckets full of wort ready for yeast to be pitched. Mind wandered to something in the

    Question for all grain brewers. What can I do with unmalted wheat? A farmer just gave me a
    large sack of wheat that he picked from his field. I have not used unmalted wheat before. What
    can I expect f...

    I just tried a honey kolsch from Rogue brewery today. It has a faint honey taste. Maybe contact
    them to see how they use it. Late in the fermentation would be my guess, but I am sure it will
    take off ...

    I recently tried to make a Spotted Cow clone. The attempt was close, but as I tried it against
    a bottled of SC, I noticed it had a little tartness, or bite to it that mine didn't. I am not
    sure if I c...

    I used a 1/2" stainless tube bent at a 90 degree angle. I threaded a hole in the lid and used a
    plastic compression fitting that was drilled out to let the tube slide down. This way I can
    stay above t...

    I do like yours with the wheels. I wish I had handles at the top, but it is not bad to move
    empty and I'm not going to try it full. i ferment and transfer in the same place, only move to
    clean. Enjoy ...

    The tube are 3/4 inch blow off, not really needed with all the extra headspace. A 1/4" ball
    valve for co2 inlet and 1/2" adjustable diptube for beer transfer. The 8 inch tri clover makes
    it very easy ...
