    Still posting buzzed, must be alcoholic:drunk: In the time between the post on 6-28-12 and
    today, I've learned that giving off flavored beer time to age out doesn't really work, that you
    don't need to...

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.Funny!:mug:Retired, seems like I always have a beer
    in hand, or close.

    Just thinking outside the box, maybe try a champagne yeast, more tolerant to the alcohol
    already there?

  • Posted in thread: Found Beer on 08-04-2015 at 10:55 PM
    I put a case and a half of beer that had an off flavor (off enough that I couldn't drink it) in
    my cousins basement to see if it would age out the off flavor. 10 months later I retrieved
    them, chilled...

    If your going to ferment in them, use a blow off tube instead of air lock. With that much
    volume (35-55 gallons) there will a lot of CO2 leaving quickly, I don't think a standard air
    lock will handle ...

    My first suggestion would be to switch to bottled, or RO water, I use Crystal Geyser at about
    .88 cents a gallon. Most of the beer I make are hoppy ales, I've done the Morebeer Pliney The
    Elder kit 3 ...

  • Posted in thread: First brew, now I wait....and worry. on 07-21-2015 at 05:31 PM
    My first home brew was a blonde ale kit, made with a starter home brew package (bucket,
    hydrometer, 5 gal kettle, etc.) It turned out great, so much so that I was instantly hooked on
    home brewing. My ...

  • Posted in thread: First brew on 07-20-2015 at 10:22 PM
    Welcome to the obsession, you started with a fairly complex beer, and are getting in way faster
    than I did. I started with a $100. starter kit and a blonde ale. Turned out great and I was
    hooked. Of c...

  • Posted in thread: Why LME vs DME? on 07-20-2015 at 09:56 PM
    LME added at flame out, all my brews have specialty grains steeped, hop utilization always
    good, no twang, always great beer results. Prefer More Beer's foil sealed bags of LME. Usually
    warm the bags ...
