Posted in thread: Oxidation experiment, unexpected results on 10-20-2016 at 02:40 PM
I've struggled with oxidation problems and much of it was because of the "wet cardboard" taste
that I'd read about but never experienced. My beers, especially the hoppy ones, would
smell/taste great a...
Posted in thread: How long have you suffered through bad batch of homebrew? on 10-19-2016 at 03:22 AM
Pro Tip: Don't pour beer on your lawn. I dumped out almost 5 gallons of a Heady Topper clone

needed the ke...

Posted in thread: Gnats shut down my brewing on 10-06-2016 at 01:00 PM
I'll bet your beer would still turn out fine. I brew in my garage and at various times of the
year I've had leaves, flies, gnats, mosquitoes and drops of sweat fall into my wort and I've

oxygenating my beers v...

This will be the first year since 2009 that I won't be in Denver for GABF. Last year I decided

events. It wa...

Posted in thread: Anyone ever use Fast Pitch canned wort for starters? on 09-15-2016 at 07:39 PM
I've been wondering about the whole botulism thing. If it's not safe to store a quart jar of
wort in the freezer, then what about White Lab vials that I refill with yeast built up from
starters? I've ...
