  • I really like to drink good beer and thought how cool would it be to try and make it on your own. I've seen and sampled my fathers experiments as home brewer and thought if he could do it so could I. Did I mention I really like beer. There really isn't very much else about me except I enjoy hiking every now and then. I live close to, and pass Sugar Loaf Mountain every day to and from work, so I enjoy the view. I also have a thing for playing video games, especially Halo :)

    Well they were actually two different recipes but, I didn't think that the grain bill would
    have anything to do with it because we brewed two other different recipes in the same mash tun
    but never had...

    Here is my next question again part 2, when my buddies and I brewed two weekends ago. I noticed
    that my buddy who decided to step mash, took forever to sparge, not to mention our mash tun
    would clog u...

    It has been over a year since my last brew, and I am trying to get all of my knowledge about

    Has anyone tried to run a fish air tank through a filtered line and an aeration stone while
    your fermenting? I have seen and herd about this and was wondering about its effectiveness.

    well the problem is I have a Honeywell RTH221B with a different wire hook up. Fortunately
    though I was able to get it to work. I plan to post a few pics and instructions on what I did.

    I have a quick question concerning a fermentation chiller. Does anyone know or have
    instructions to rig the thermostat to turn the fans on?

    A wise beer enthusiast once said R.D.W.H.A.H.B. and be patient, it's hard to honestly really
    screw it up. Unless you never boiled anything or even raised your temperature once while
    throwing half your...
