  • 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.

    If you did so it would be best to refrigerate the wort. If it's only 24 hours you shouldn't
    have any issues but... Who knows?I have waited that long to pitch but I boil ASAP on brew day.

    You think some states are bad, get a load of this bull**** in my home state of PA. I have a
    good friend who works in Liquor Enforcement and he talks about it all the time how the laws are

    Going to brew a Belgian blonde ale using S-33 yeast. Also going to bottle my saison.It feels
    weird not to be making a yeast starter. I haven't used dry yeast in over a year now.

    Don't forget what had to be possibly the stupidest law ever... up until 10 years ago, in SC,
    all liquor in bars had to be poured from mini-bottles. You would walk into a bar and the wall
    was literally...

    SC has recently allowed Sunday beer/wine sales in the last ten years after they relaxed the
    'blue laws' on the books. Still no liquor sales on Sunday though. Liquor is sold 9am to 7pm
    Mon-Sat and has ...

    I love this yeast and have made about a half dozen cream ales with it. I find it very crisp as
    it usually finishes a 1.050+ wort below 1.010. It also has given me some of the clearest brews
    I have mad...

    Put it in a tub of cool water and give it 8-12 hours, then pitch as normal. You will be
    surprised how well it will come out.
