  • I Have been drinking microbrews for a whlie.Love the taste of most but not the retail price. So, I decided to try to make my own beer. Bought my equipment and starter ingredient kit locally. Just doing partial mash extract kits for now and want to get into whole grain in the future, once I figure out the basic process. Made 2 brews so far, an American Amber(turned out more like an IPA) and a English Brown Ale(tastes real good out of the primary).

    20L is $1995 at more beer, and you have to have 220 electricity(like an electric dryer). Looks
    pretty nice, all in 1 system.

    I have been ordering from Neil for a while now. I buy in bulk now after buying a mill. 50 lb of
    2 row for $36...good deal. He has lowered my cost by at least 30% from the LHBS in Green Bay.

    I usually get either New Belguim seasonals or Sam Adams. But I still think my beer is better.
    Those commercially made seasonals give more of a variety.

    2/3 cup of sugar seems a bit high if you are doing 5 gallon batches. I usually put in 4.4 oz in
    2 cups of water, boil for 5 min. clean and sanitize my bottles while cooling the solution in
    the fridge....

    My worst....Burned my hand a couple months back. Not wearing proper PPE, and stupidly grabbing
    the pot as it was boiling over.

    You should post the recipe to give these people a better idea of what you are trying to achieve
    with the bitterness. 1st hop addition is to establish bitterness, other additions for flavor
    and late ad...

    OG was 1.050 and FG 1.011. About a 5.1% beer. And thats what I thought, just give it more time.
    Checked the caps and no leakage there.

    I have been brewing for about 2 years. Lately making some great beers. But this one beer I made
