    Do you have something in the fermenter? I live just east of Timnath. Brewed my fourth batch
    last weekend. Welcome to HBT. I have learned a lot here. Also recommend John Palmers " How to
    Brew"If I can ...

    I used a big Rubbermaid and put ice water with frozen gallon water jugs in it and stirred the
    wort. I had it down to 75 within 20-25 minutes. Substantially quicker than my first try. I
    found it's easi...

    So its been 12 days fermenting and I just tested my first little bit with my wine thief. Tested
    at 1.010. Right on the money from my recipe sheet. It's gotta sit until Friday that's when I
    will bottle...

    burner back up af...

    Started my first batch and it's going well.. Or so I assume. The airlock bounced around for a
    good 3 days and now it's stagnant and it's been 6 days since fermentation started or was put in
    the bucket...

    All of New Belgium beers taste the same to me. I live 10 minutes from there Fort Collins
    brewery and they just all have the same flavor profile, some just have more hops than the
    others.

    I will keep you in mind if I make it down there.

    Ever make it towards Ft Collins? I could use the bottles.

  • Posted in thread: New to home brews! on 12-29-2013 at 09:25 PM
    It's hard to chose a favorite in Ft Collins. FCB and Funkwerks are my go to besides

    brown ales I've ever tas...
