  • Posted in thread: Anyone try 7C's hops yet? on 12-21-2013 at 04:13 AM
    If you like citrus then 7 c's is the hop blend for you. I buy this by the pound and brew IPAs
    with this exclusively about every other brew. 1.5 oz. @60, 1.5 oz @10, 1 oz @ flameout -20min.
    steep. 2oz ...

  • Posted in thread: HELP!! All Extract Brews taste similar on 04-26-2013 at 01:54 PM
    Northern Brewer kits are fantastic. My first dozen brews were with those kits. After about 3
    brews I found the same problem. similar taste. This is where the ART of brewing comes to play.
    The kits giv...

    A ditto on adding only one pound of dextrose to the mix, unless you like a "dryer" tasting ale.
    one pound of dextrose or DME will equate to roughly one % of ABV. so you can get at least a
    rough idea o...

  • Posted in thread: How do I split and save a yeast starter? on 04-26-2013 at 01:24 PM
    I routinely do what Dave and Craig do. IF the yeast is a little older (3 to 4 months) i'll step
    up twice before dividing. I usually don't cold crash the starter unless i'm stepping up again.
    I ALWAYS ...

  • Posted in thread: "Trick" for more accurate hydro reading? on 04-21-2013 at 01:53 AM
    a refractometer can be easier to read initially but is only good for OG readings. you should
    use a hydrometer for FG and mid fermentation readings.

  • Posted in thread: How long does cold crashing (really) take? on 04-19-2013 at 01:48 AM
    I usually do 3 weeks in primary and cold crash 3 to 5 days. usually 3 days will do most beers
    even my most recent double IPA. i'm with Kombat, Time and cold. the yeasties will eventually
    drop out.

  • Posted in thread: Who has experience with Wyeast 1945 Neobritannia? on 04-19-2013 at 01:39 AM
    I had a fast fermentation with mine as well but it took almost 2 weeks and some swirling to get
    the krausen down. i made the same bitter and it tastes great! happy drinking

  • Posted in thread: I'm looking for a good Nut Brown Ale Kit on 12-10-2012 at 07:48 PM
    you won't be disappointed with the Caribou. It is a kit my brew buddies and i have in a regular
    rotation about every 4 batches. Good, clean, easy to drink, everyone likes it.

  • Posted in thread: What could have gone wrong with my white house porter on 12-08-2012 at 05:16 PM
    It tastes bitter, bland, just a sad beer. My guests faces puckered, it isn't skunky, it is
    bitter and maybe even a tiny bit sour.Sounds like something from the White House.:)I would
    agree with the abo...

  • Posted in thread: Chocolate Milk Stout Recipe on 12-07-2012 at 07:16 PM
    use cocoa nibs if you can in secondary, and IF you keg. put them right in the keg as well. Also
    adding rice syrup solids at flameout will add a little ABV bump and sweeten the perceived
    "milk" from th...
