  • I got into home brewing because of a friend who has an extensive All-Grain setup and it seemed like it would be a lot of fun to do. So currently I have been doing extract brewing in a turkey fryer borrowed from my father-in-law with a kit that I got as a groupon offer. rnrnI have brewed a couple of beers now and I think I am on my 5th batch. My first was an Irish Red, then a fabulous pumpkin ale, and now I have a blue-moon clone on tap. Been learning a lot especially from these forums and others experiences. Being a biochemist/engineer by training, this is a great hobby to be in.
  • Planning on doing a Cherry or Vanilla Stout, Pumpkin ale, and Oktoberfest in the next 3 months or so.
  • Hopes and dreams of being filled with beer....

    I'll have to agree with many others, 1318 is great. I use it in 50% of my beers. I find that
    it's especially good with my stouts personally.

    I'm sure there are many issues with what I'm going to propose but.... What if you took a
    refractometer reading and a hydrometer reading. With these two measures I have calculated OG
    fairly accurately ...

    Hey hbt folks. Me and my wife are planning to go to the New England area (Mass. , Rhode island,
    dc, Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire primarily). So we were wondering if there are any
    breweries up that...

    So the reason that I went with the 2-row is that I have read that others have used MO in their
    RIS and they do not notice the MO since it gets blended into the other flavors of the beer
    (since there i...

    So I switched around the recipe and I think I'm going to pick up the ingredients tonight. I
    changed out one of the magnum hops for 2oz for glacier since that seems to do well in stouts
    and has high be...

    Hey all,Thanks for the feedback. I think the only reason that I put in Chinook was because it
    was one that came to mind. I think Magnum will likely be a better choice. To explain some of my
    thoughts, ...

    Hi all, I've been off HBT for a little bit but I'm glad to be back at it. I've got an RIS that
    I've been thinking if making but I wanted to run it past some other eyes to get a gut check
    from others. ...

  • Posted in thread: Airlock question on 01-20-2014 at 05:21 PM
    Hey bug. Since it has only been a day I would clean and replace the airlock. Chances are it
    might continue to do the same thing and if it tries to come out again it might clog the
    airlock. That would ...

    Well it sounds almost like a FWH but did you put the hops in the bag with the grains? Then
    remove after the steep? If you did then it's more like a hop stand before the boil. ... don't
    know for sure b...
