  • Married with two kids. I have a B.S. in Biology. I work in the veterinary medicine field and absolutely love it. Have had a love affair with beer since I was in college. Was drawn to brewing beer for creative reasons and also so I could make seasonal beer any time of the year (really love me some Pumpkin beer).

  • Love beer and have been wanting to brew for a number of years. Wife has been supportive of the idea and got me a Mr. Brew for Christmas. Never looked back. Right now due to limited space and my penchant for variety I brew mostly 3 gallon all grain batches.

    Getting ready to try this out and turns out I don't have any wine or champagne yeast like I
    thought I did. Any reason this wouldn't work just as well with something like US-05 or is wine

    Thanks for sharing :mug:. Yeast blending is a topic I've been interested in, specifically with
    saison strains, so this is right up my alley. Be interested to see what others contribute. What
    were your...

    Quick calculation for a 1.25 gallon batch (gives you a little wiggle room for losses and still
    end up with a gallon of beer)...1.5 lbs DME (I'd probably use something like Pilsner or a
    Light)2 oz Crys...

    What kind of beer are you going for...hoppy, balanced, high gravity, sessionable?

    First label I've designed for any of my beers. Whatcha think?

  • Posted in thread: 3711 temperature? on 08-06-2015 at 08:52 PM
    Some good advice already. Nothing new to add, just that the several brews I've fermented with
    3711 I've cooled to the mid 60's before pitching yeast, kept it at about 65-68 F for the first
    couple days...

    As much as people claim you can adjust color with dehusked Carafa Special without flavor, even
    an ounce or two and I can still taste it. I'd sooner have the caramel than the roast.I only
    gave the Cara...

    I use a French press, with a little acid and everclear, about 14 g of leaf hops in 500ml of
    170F water.What kind of acid do you use?

  • Posted in thread: Saison with Pear? on 08-04-2015 at 07:38 PM
    The last BYO issue had a whole section on using fruit. Per that article Pear flavor was a
    subtle addition and they recommended about 2 lbs per gallon on it's usage. I say try it and
    see. There's also ...

  • Posted in thread: Help me with my first saison recipe on 08-04-2015 at 07:33 PM
    Any suggestion on how to make up for the color if i omit the c40? I'm totally up to take it out
    as I want to do the style justice as its my favorite (just never brewed) but beersmith knocks
    the color ...
