    ABOUT ME

  • New to homebrewing. So far I have done a few extract kits from midwestsupplies.com. You can catch some of my homebrew vids on youtube.com here: http://www.youtube.com/user/drumphased?feature=watchrnrn
  • Home Brewing (well,yeah),flying,drumming,drinking (did I say homebrewing?),computer gaming.
  • I got a Mr.Beer kit in December and wanted to take it to the next level. So, I got "real" brewing equipment (fermenting bucket, carboy, bottling bucket, etc.) and did an extract brew with specialty grains. Last weekend (6/16/12) I did a partial mash with a buddy of mine. I am hooked. I want to learn as much as I can and am going to get into All Grain brewing by next summer; plan to anyway.

    Hi there fellow home brewers! I have a quick question.....I am fairly new to home brewing. I
    have done 4 all grain batches, 4 partial mash batches, and roughly 6 extract batches. For some
    reason I nev...

  • Posted in thread: First All Grain Batch - When to rack to secondary? on 02-27-2013 at 01:16 AM
    That's good to know. So, I guess I will make my secondary carboy another primary fermenter and
    do two batches at a time rather than one. :DOne last question though, why do kits
    (specifically, ones fro...

  • Posted in thread: Bubbler will not stay in carboy on 02-26-2013 at 03:32 PM
    I assume by "bubbler" you mean an airlock, correct? Are you using a plastic bucket or carboy as
    your fermenter? If Carboy you should get a tighter fitting bung (they do come in different
    sizes). If bu...

    Thanks for the feedback.I have read and heard that you should rack the beer into a secondary to
    get it off the trub which can cause of flavors. Is that not true?

    Hey home brewers! I have a question.... I have done several full extract and partial mash beers
    up to this point and last week I finally broke my all grain cherry doing a Stone Ruination IPA
    clone. I ...

    It looks like yeast that was on the floor of the carboy that somehow made its way up.Its pretty
    thick.Maybe it does have something to do with the irish moss. Doesnt look like an
    infection,probably jus...

    After looking at that again, it looks like really thick yeast rafts that are finally breaking
    up. Take a hydro sample and then taste it. I bet it tastes good. justinThank you for the reply.
    I haven't ...

    Hello home brewers! I have a question for you more experienced brewers out there. I have brewed
    my fourth batch ever and the last beer I brewed was a partial mash clone of Dogfish Head 60
    Minute IPA. ...

    Sorry, I chuckled when reading this. Of all the luck, huh? I'm sure you will be
    fine.....RDWHAHB! :)

  • Posted in thread: Water volume calculations for mini-mash on 07-15-2012 at 06:22 PM
    When I was doing partial mash I settled on using about a gallon of water to mash. Something to
    consider, it always seemed to me like it was really easy to over sparge doing a partial mash.
    4.5 quarts ...
