    ABOUT ME

  • Martinsburg, WV
  • Joe Kent
  • I started brewing in the mid 1980's. Mostly extract and steeping grains, but did a few very low tech all grain batches. I went several years without brewing due to small children, time, and the sudden local availability of craft beer. Started back into brewing because I missed it, and went straight to all grain only.
    I now brew mostly English and Irish style beers, and the occasional Belgian.
  • continue with the "Trilogy of Darkness": Debacle, Ex Inferis.
    maybe a Bitter or something else quick.....

    From an article I wrote a while back, with my recipe.Kötbußer:From the town of Kötbuß in
    eastern Prussia, this beer is simply amazing. Kötbuß is the cultural center of the Sorbian

    You just unwittingly touched on a pet peeve of mine....The ONLY time "Imperial" should be used
    is in reference to a Russian Imperial Stout. Imperial is in the name due to who it was brewed
    for, not th...

    Good question.I place my hands on either side of the fermenter, and give it a sharp quarter
    turn, and back. I typically do this three times. This "swirls" the wort without sloshing it.
    There is no oxy...

    (Really Yooper ... dirt? I think you have destroyed your taste buds with all those "cat piss
    and pine tar hops";)

    Oh ... save the centennial for the late additions too .. and use the liberty for bittering ...

    I never figure shorter than 6 or 7 weeks in primary before I even bother to check the gravity
    with bigger beers with S-04.And I mash a couple of degrees higher than I normally would .... it
    has taken ...

    What did you mash at?S-04 can be a real beast with big beers sometimes .... and attenuate more
    than you would expect ... takes a while ... but it will keep chugging for several weeks

  • Posted in thread: Slow Ferm/Gusher Bug in Secondary on 09-03-2013 at 01:31 PM
    What makes you think it has a bug? Is there a film on the surface? Nasty white bubbles? If not
    you are probably OK ... and the yeast is just still at it with that sugar you added
