    The weather has finally cooled off in Texas, so time to whip up a 10 gallon batch. It's been a
    long while.

    Hey Ed,Is this beer supposed to have a lot of banana and clove flavors and aromas? When I took
    the gravity reading I tasted the sample, and I got no banana at all and just a little clove
    flavor. The s...

    temps. Works like a champ during cold snaps and total costs including the extension cord were
    less than 10...

    Just over 3 weeks old and a week on gas, I rushed this beer to free up my fermentation chamber.
    It's still a little green but not bad I got anxious and pulled a draft, this was poured via a

    I'm in Texas too and room temperature (77 to 69) depending on time of year and time of day has
    worked best for me.I would never subject it to the wide ranges of temp in a garage.

    Hey all, hoping I can get some advice...I've got a batch aging in the garage that's hit the 4

    Happy 4th of July Folks.It's good to be brewing again after a long hiatus due to business
    travel. 10 gallons of Hefe is a good start today.Cheers,EdWort

    That's awesome! Especially since we couldn't get a free chalice here in TX.Ain't that the
    truth. Stupid Texas laws.

Apfelwein is now always on tap. It brings great men to their knees and has been known to do the same to a few women.

Ed, I can't believe how much I read your stuff. You are my idol (among a few others, cough cough, can't list you all guys... and girl ;)). Great knowledge and great personality in your writing, I look forward to someday getting around to your area and meeting you in person (best friend just moved to Austin and works near Bee Cave). Oh and my admiration extends past barley-guts, I absolutely love the food threads and cooking info you show. Ok, now back to being a professional brewer in an obs
