  • Portland, OR
  • I'm a total noob. Almost finished with The Complete Joy of Homebrewing by Charlie Papazian. I've got my first brew of Munton's Nut Brown Ale in a carboy.

    Edit! - I'm still a noob, but I've got 11 batches under my belt!

  • Edit!- I've bern being up a storm! My goal is to only drink beer that I've brewed... Okay that's a bit much especially since I went to the holiday ale fest here in portland (which was freaking awesome!). Okay my goal is to not but so much commercial bet and brew the vat majority of what I drink. :-)

    Brewing Muntons Nut Brown Ale malt extract kit right now... added more lightly hopped malt extract to the mix. It's my first brew. Pretty sure it's ready to bottle... took a hydrometer reading today(8-19-10), going to read again tomorrow and possibly bottle on Saturday.
  • I want to brew more Nut Brown, Red Ale, and some Porter.
    I'd like to do small one gallon batches(I know I've read the threads, takes the same amount of time, sanitation, and etc so might as well do 5 gallons), I'd like to have multiple types of beer on hand, and space is usually limited. So I feel that this strategy would be advantageous for me. And less intimidating getting into all grain brewing in smaller batches.

    The tartness should fade with time. I've had great success using fresh berries that I've
    frozen, then thawed, smashed and put right into my hop bag to catch all the plant matter and
    seeds. I put the b...

    Looks great! Let us know how it is after its bottled and carbed up!

    Nope I didn't take the seeds out, they were on the fresh/frozen berries that I brewed with. I
    did put a mesh bag on my siphon to filter the berry leftovers and seeds when I racked to my
    bottling bucke...

    Update on my version... the tartness is gone! It's beautiful and very delicious!

    I let everything sit in primary for a month. Unless I'm dry hopping or it's a style that
    doesn't need that long, ie: Bob's Session Mild.

    Some reading that I've done I found out that Muntons extracts attenuates more than Breiss
    extracts... Perhaps you wouldn't need to add any sugar with Muntons.

    I'm still a noob, is it the UV rays that will skunk a beer? If so... Something to keep in mind,
    UV rays travel through clouds... Anyone who's gotten a sunburn on a cloudy day can attest to
    that. (I ha...

    I'm a fan of Honey Brown! I used to drink it when I lived in Georgia and Hawaii, now I'm in
    Oregon where it's made and can't find it anywhere, go figure! I don't remember if I was
    drinking Dundee's, I...
