    Piched a 24h starter of yeastgeek YG001 into a pale ale, and I'm 7 days into the ferment.
    Something is very wrong. I'm starting to get what I can only think is Brett funk. I have never
    used Brett in m...

    I need an update. I have a 5.5 gallon barrel I aged a beer in for two months after it had been
    emptied by the distillery and I was thinking of adding an FR to it. So, original poster, what
    did you do?...

    Not sure about the whole "smaller barrel=less time" thing after aging two beers in 5 gallon
    Journeyman Silver Cross barrels. I went 8 weeks. I tasted every week for the first few weeks,

    Kegged on April 2 and primed with corn sugar. I tried it today and I really like these hops.
    I'd say the description was pretty close. Smells great and tastes great. Not as fruity as say

    Thanks for asking!Finishing primary fermentation now. Did the same grist and two separate
    boils. All Citra in one and EXP 5256 in the other. I have made the Citra many times with this
    grist. The EXP 5...

    I was part of a big brew on Saturday and took home 5 gallons of Helles bock at 1.070 and 5 of
    Schwarzbier at 1.052. I chilled them down to 47F and got my big slurry of second gen WLP 833

    Hi all. Made this a year ago and it was a huge hit. The only differences in my recipe was that
    I used London Ale III (it was all they had, but i liked it so I am going to use it again). And
