    FWIW, in 1991, a friend of my father convinced be to start homebrewing and gave me Patrick
    Baker's "The New Brewers Handbook". Handbook in hand, I went to the LHBS in Winston-Salem and
    started filling...

  • Posted in thread: Lervig White Dog - What Yeast? on 08-18-2016 at 08:18 PM
    A Norwegian Wheat Ale brewed with Belgian Wit Yeast to give distinct spicy character. Light,
    cloudy pale color, with a crisp body and yeast-driven flavours which is complemented by
    additions of corian...

    My regional store had wine maybe from the beginning, has added cheese and distilling, then
    became a bottle shop, and now is a growler shop. Buy over a certain amount and you get to spin
    a wheel for fr...

    With it being hot as balls, decided to brew a Saison today with 007 hops (idaho 7), first time
    using them. Was all too easy inspiration for a label...Recheck your ABV. Shouldn't that be
    007%?

    1) I drink good whiskey straight. Beam or Jack needs Coke, though I'd rather have the Coke
    straight.2) "Reeks of oak" is why you are doing this. The reeking will mellow. Toss it in. 3)
    Go to 1) for wh...

  • Posted in thread: Drom John Hibiscus Mango Blonde on 08-14-2016 at 02:19 AM
    More like hibiscus tea than an ale. Almost Beaujolais red. Drinkable. If rebrewed, then I would
    reduce the hibiscus to 8 oz (normal package size) and increase the mango puree to 25.6 oz (an
    eighth pac...

    Every sixteenth brew is an IPA clone. This one is my usual LME conversion, slight change to the
    Victory American hop usage, and dry yeast because it's too hot to ship liquid yeast variation
    of a Beer ...

    Hey, you're Boog Powell.My stock pot can take up to 6 lbs grain, prefer 5 lbs. Stock pot is not
    a unitasker. Sometimes we make stock, or big soups, und so weiter. Bigger pot probably would be
    for beer...

    1) Dates would go well with a dubbel or quadruple.3/6) I've only used ginger and lemongrass in
    a lawnmower brew. I'd go Kolsch, Pale Lager, Saison, Blonde
