  • 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.

    eastern Prussia, this beer is simply amazing. Kötbuß is the cultural center of the Sorbian
    people, and it is un...

    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

    There is no oxy...

    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
