    Hi all, I am an experienced beer/mead/cider brewer, but I am making an alcoholic ginger beer at
    the moment for the first time and having some strange occurrences. The recipe is taken from a

  • Posted in thread: anyone ever personally use champagne yeast? on 10-18-2014 at 07:11 AM
    Wine yeast doesn't ferment maltose.Are you sure about that? I can understand if they aren't as
    efficient as brewing yeasts which are selected for maltose metabolism efficiency, but I find it

  • Posted in thread: How do I not get that vegitative green taste in my IPAs? on 10-18-2014 at 06:47 AM
    From my own beers, I've noticed that taste especially when I have a lot of mid-addition/flavor

    As long as your methods are sanitary, I'm sure it would be fine to add water. The high ABV and

    just let i...

  • Posted in thread: Will this bottling process be alright? on 03-12-2014 at 11:15 AM
    Well, you should get a bottling bucket for sure. But, until you do, the easy way to measure out
    the volume would just be to divide up the total volume of sugar water into equal if
    you made ...

    Put your hops in removable muslin bags, whirlpool, drain the wort slowly, and then don't worry
    about the rest of the trub that gets in. I just made a czech pilsner that had entire hop cones
    and trub f...
