  • I was given a basic brew kit for Xmas one year but this was woefully inadequate. So, I went to a local Homebrew store and upgraded to the two bucket system and have been happily making my own for 15 years or more. I try to make anything and everything I can to expand my palate and experience as a homebrewer.

    I made this one a couple months ago and it matured to a great brown ale. I actually upped the
    victory malt from .5# to 1# because I wanted a bit more nuttiness.🍻Nut Brown Ale9.00 lb

  • Posted in thread: What's your recipe philosophy? on 07-30-2014 at 04:26 PM
    Just curious... How do you find the perfect IPA? It's such a broad style and peoples tastes are

    S-04 should be a good substitute for any British/ UK beer. It's not quite as clean or forgiving
    as S-05 but English strains have a bit more fruity characteristics anyway.Sent from my iPhone

    I've only used Nottingham, us-04 and wlp007 for my British ales (which I love!). The 007 comes
    thru in early tasting of my English pale ale. Notty is just a clean, awesome yeast and probably

    I have brewed great kits from Northern Brewer, Austin Homebrew and Morebeer. My favorite kits
