    Room temp, which in my un-airconditioned apartment could have been anywhere between 65-80F. Now
    I have a basement, so that should stabilize to 65-70F.

    Well, there were no chloramines in Madison's water (at the time, anyway). But you may be right
    that that water overall wasn't great.I doubt that the yeast was still working, but it's
    certainly possibl...

    Yo!Thanks for the responses.It's definitely not sour or skunky.I'd recognize skunky from what
    Corona and Heineken taste like. :)The water for these particular batches was 1 part city of

    Hey, y'all.So, my problem's in the title. I brew partial mash and all-grain, usually 2.5 gallon
    batches (due to stovetop boil limitations) though my most recent one was a 5 gallon
    partial.Anyway, I've...

    I have had beer from and/or been to all the breweries mentioned so far in this forum.Without
    hesitation, my #1 recommendation is Central Waters in Amherst. Their beer in bottles is so-so

    Yeah, this opened my eyes a bit. After a bit more searching, now I'm really intrigued by this
    ferment-in-the-kettle thing.Someone should come out with a commercial version of that, with
    clamps and sil...

    never seen those before. That's pretty much perfect!Looks like you can still fit an arm through
    that neck ...

    I take it back.I searched a bit more and found a few people that do exactly that:brew and then
    ferment in the same kettle.Sweet...This obviously ties up a kettle, but even 3 decent SS
    kettles is much ...

    Hi.I'm sure this has been asked before as it's a question that's been rattling around in my
    head for a while.Why doesn't anyone make some sort of option between the low-end ($10-45 for
    plastic buckets...

    A few things I learned:-Experiment slowly.The guy I started brewing with at the end of 2011
