  • Got into home brewing around the beginning of December in 2008. I bought a Starter kit that consists of a 7 gallon fermenting bucket, a 7 gallon bottling bucket, and an auto-siphon. My first batch was a Munton's IPA that I got out of a can. My second batch was about a week and another 7 gallon fermenting bucket later. It was more complicated with hop pellets, more boiling, ect. It is a nut brown ale recipe. I did it out of the common anxiety everyone speaks of when first brewing... I thought I ruined my first batch so I made another. At least I can make more beer now though. I really enjoy the hobby and will be doing this for a long time to come I think. Thanks for reading.

    Hey all. I was hoping that someone could help me out with a strange recipe request. This might
    be disgusting but I think a small gallon batch would be fun to try out. I am looking for a
    candy cane/pep...

    On Monday I made a three gallon batch of pumpkin ale using safale s-04 yeast. The airlock was
    going crazy for two days. Then...nothing. absolutely no airlock movement. I figured that b/c my

    I don't see why some people are ripping on him and calling his party beer hooch. So what if he
    wants to make cheap beer in large quantities to give out a college party. In my opinion four
    great possib...

    thanks for the research davis. Do u think this should mellow out with time in bottles?

    just to clarify. I have drank many batches of my beer while it was still green. Probably at
    least 80 percent of them. They were all done in a 5 gallon ale pail. No taste of rubber once
    until now.

    I have been doing smaller batches in one gallon fermenters lately. All of my gallon jugs I have
    been using rubber stoppers in. I have not bottled anything yet, they are all in about the 3rd
    week of ag...

    I was bottling in my apartment kitchen. I had the bottling bucket by the sink and my bottles on
    the floor. I must've been on my haunches crouched over for a really long time because both my
    legs fell ...

    One important thing to think about here that has been mentioned is this. If this move to more
    efficient production lowers production costs, why won't the price decrease? I hate to think
    that these com...
