  • I had a real-estate agent who brews his own and invited me to a party to sample his latest. Probably one of the first craft beers I'd ever tried. Hey, this didn't taste like college beer! I told the wife that night that one day I'd make my own beer. A few years later, I found some equipment on Craigslist and more importantly, The rest is history. I'm hooked!

    I live on lackland afb and cant seem to tap into the local hb community. What gives?Have you
    joined the Bexar Brewers group? I'm pretty sure you can sign up at any time. They're pretty
    active and I ge...

    My wife and I, along with 6 others that we do crossfit with did the Dallas Mudder over the
    weekend too. It was pretty fun overall and the weather was perfect. My only complaint was
    having to wait so l...

    This is my first lager" is awesome, better than Stella. Light, crisp, malty, and a
    touch of hops. Thanks for the recipe!While the "awesome" part was spot on, you sure you posted
    this to the r...

    Look at your IBU calculator: 33-34 IBU's? That's not even in IPA range. Style range is about
    40-70 IBU's. When I saw your hop schedule, I thought it was for a 5 gallon batch. For a 10-12
    gallon, this ...

    Over the weekend, I had a few friends sample it and they felt like it was somewhat hoppy after
    all. I'm wondering if maybe it's just the lower IBUs that makes it seem less hoppy than what
    I'm used to....

    Do you use a carb stone? If you carbonate from the bottom of the keg, it can purge out hop
    aroma. Is the beer becoming more carbonated as is it sits in the keg? If the beer has 15+ psi
    of pressure to ...

    My biggest complaint about my homebrew is its inability to retain hop flavor/aroma. Almost all
    of my beers are APAs, IPAs, or ambers, and they all focus primarily on the hops. I know these
    are suppose...

    Would the batch pick up off flavors if I let it sit a little longer on the trub in the
    carboy?Lots of folks routinely leave their beers in primary for a month+ before racking to a
    keg or bottling buck...

    I just realized you said you would put an airlock on it. If you prime while it has an airlock,
    you wouldn't be carbonating the beer as the CO2 would escape. Prime it or force carb it in the
    keg. You c...

I like a little more beer in my beer.
