    ABOUT ME

  • 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).
  • Light ales, Honey ales, IPA's
  • English Brown Ale
  • American Amber
  • none
  • Male
  • Married
  • De Pere
  • Wisconsin

    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.

    It's not necessary. I do it for clearing of my brews. I like to get as much out of the primary
    as I can, so I usually suck a little too much yeast. When you transfer to the secondary, that
    yeast will ...

    Just used my Barley crusher for the 1st time. If I achieved my expected OG, I shouldn't have to
    change to roller settings, am I correct in this assumption?

    A few days ago I had a boil over that ended up burning my hand because I grabbed the handles
    when the wort went over the top of the kettle. So last night I tried to brew again, but this
    time at the ho...

    Was brewing, what was going to be a delicious pale ale, when a boil over occurred at my 1st hop
    addition. Stupid me grabbed the handles of the pot and the wort boiled over onto my right hand
    causing 2...
