  • While I was in school at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina I became a big fan of the craft brewing industry. It wasn't until after graduation that the idea of making my own beer hit me. So I purchased a basic equipment kit along with an ingredient kit. The hobby has become an obsession. My skills have progressed and I am now making very solid all-grain beer. I use a 10 gallon Gott cooler with a manifold that I procured through John Palmer's "How to Brew." I use a 5.5 gallon brewpot as my hot liquor tank for heating strike and sparge additions; my brewpot is 6.5 gallons. Eventually I may need bigger equipment but for right now I have everything I need. Maybe if I start doing 10 gallon batches since the 5 gallon batches just don't last long enough!! Oh well...relax, don't worry...have a homebrew

    I haven't tried making this one yet...still waiting on my hops to arrive. Decided to mash at
    152*F instead of 155. You could try some Vienna but I am only using ingredients that were

    Aren't they similar? The British ale yeast won't leave as much residual sweetness as the
    English. Wouldn't that make the beer more balanced? I may still go to the LHBS and get WLP002
    English. I haven'...

    The link I followed from the brewery's website shows all the ingredients needed. However they
    will not tell you the mash temp, weights/amounts for the ingredients, etc... After trying
    several times to...
