  • I became a marathoner in 11/2009, running Philadelphia (one of America's best Beer Cities!) 26.2 miles is a great way to burn beer calories. Marathon PR is 3:47:31 at the Rehoboth Beach Marathon 2012.

  • Started in college with the Canadian "brew on premises" stores to make beer cheaper. Of course that sucked. After moving to the US, I went to a homebrew store and was shocked to find that the shelves were stacked with cans of malt extract and there were grain sacks lying around. It seemed so lame at the time to actually have to do all that work (as compared to brew on premise) but obviously I tried it and I stuck around. That was 2002. I am now all-grain, brewing 10 gallon batches. I guess "all that work" is a good thing when you can produce something you're proud of, huh? First setup was the Brewer's Best plastic starter kit. Eventually upgraded to a 10-gallon megapot from NB and built a coil chiller so I could do full boils of 5 gallon batches. Now I brew in 15-gallon Boilermakers from Blichmann on my Top Tier with 40 and 70 quart coolers for mash tuns.

    To the OP's question, I have never had an issue with a deep red color (which I was always told
    comes from the roasted barley). I use roughly the same percentage as you, but mine is the Crisp
    roasted b...

    I ended up going with a Belgian Dubbel, and fermented with WY3787.I cheated by adding 8 oz
    cocoa nibs at flameout. It was very prominent in the flavor and aroma of the unfermented
    wort.There was a gre...

    Hi all, hoping I can get some guidance here on brewing with chocolate.Not chocolate malt, not

    locally-sourced spe...

    Carefully verify your volume and gravity measurement first. Greater than 100% efficiency is not

    You either boiled off too much or changed something else that increased your extraction. Some
    top-up water is in order to achieve the right starting gravity. Is that as good as just hitting
    it right i...
