  • I got into home brewing after my brother bought all the equipment, but realized that he didn't have the time to actually use it. After sitting in storage for about a year, I decided that I should probably put it to use!

    When I got the stuff, I literally had no idea what half of it was, so I went online and found this site.

    My first brew was an American Ale called "Righteous American Ale" from Charlie Papazian's "The Complete Joy of Home Brewing". It turned out well, but plenty of room for improvement.

    Since then I've brewed a Wheat ale, Kolsch and most recently a pumpkin ale, which I'm excited to try!

    Yes, it can be done. But only with commercial beers that are bottle conditioned. You can
    usually tell this by looking for a layer of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Here you go.

    Last December, I brewed a Extract Honey Brown Ale kit from NB. For a number of personal
    reasons, I wasn't really able to bottle or keg it anywhere near the time it should have
    been.Last night, 6 month...

    Hard to diagnose without your detailed procedure. If you get done mashing and sparging, and
    your pre-boil gravity is still too low, you can boil longer to drop it. You might get a small
    amount of cara...

    a few weeks back, I finished brewing my ginger-peach wheat which had 5lbs of peaches in the
    secondary. The coating that stuck to the inside of my carboy from the peaches was incredible
    and survived tw...

    Hi, I brewed a Chocolate Milk Stout (extract) kit from NB a few weeks ago. The recipe calls to
    rack to secondary and add cacao nibs. My questions are 1. Is there any reason I shouldn't
    (can't) just ad...

    Alright. So, after doing numerous extract batches, I made a rectangle Mash/Lauter tun with a
    CPVC manifold. Unfortunately, I don't have a pot with a large enough boil capacity to make a
    full 5gal batc...

    Yeah, a thermometer for fermentation of some fashion is an almost an "absolute must" IMO. I'm
    not sure what the ambient temp range is like for you right now, but I've found that an old, wet
    t-shirt fi...
