  • Always wanted to brew, my brother-in-law just opened a homebrew store so he hooked me up. Got a turkey fryer off Craigslist and a 20-qt Martha Stewart SS brewpot. Now I'm just trying to figure out how it all works!
  • I like porters and stouts, so that's probably what I'll concentrate on.

  • Posted in thread: Things about your co-workers that annoy you on 01-09-2017 at 05:46 PM
    It's not FREQUENT, but often get "Whole Office" emails like "The color printer on 5th floor is
    down", or "There's fresh fruit on the break room table" from someone in an office 500 miles
    away.Heh, rem...

    Here's one on the cheap: imagine you get what you pay for, but it might be a fun way to get
    your feet wet, and you can always pass it over to the kids when you outgrow it.

  • Posted in thread: Wort too cold to pitch yeast on 11-28-2016 at 06:10 PM
    If I pitch the yeast in wort at the temp of 54F to 57F, won't that cause the yeast to become
    dormant? It's dry yeast, so it's already dormant. It'll just take longer for it to wake up. If
    your ferment...

    BelgiansMe too! Even the few I don't mind so much (e.g. Piraat) I can't drink more than one of
    in a sitting. I do like saisons, but dubbels/tripels/quads, bleargh!

    If I was going to do a repitch, do you have recommendations for a yeast? I don't want to do the
    same one. I may even do a dry yeast.I'd recommend using the same yeast, just from a fresher
    package. ;) ...

    If parasites can live in your dog's digestive tract, I don't think a little Star San is going
    to bother them. I'd just follow her and pick up her poop until the treatment regimen has run
    its course an...

  • Posted in thread: How long is BIAB taking you? on 11-11-2016 at 04:56 PM
    No-chill combined with BIAB is a real work saver. I don't think I'll ever go back to three
    vessel brewing.Same here, although I went from extract brewing to BIAB. I had planned to build
    a nice brew ri...

    I NEVER aerate any finished wort. Never had a problem with lag or infections. Make yeast
    starters and all seems to be fine.LOL, I had a brain fart with my session last Sunday. Threw
    some DME in a beak...
