  • Lots, hard to be specific.
  • Anything funny or really good. Or even really not good...
  • Adjusts frequently: Gotta love the classic episodes of the Simpsons, currently Newsroom and Homeland, also Veep, Dexter, Breaking Bad...I watch too much TV.
  • None, but I should look into it.
  • Got interested a couple years ago. My (then) girlfriend got me a Mr. Beer kit which was great, but produced mediocre beer (probably mostly my misunderstandings and following too closely to their directions). Got out of brewing a couple years. Then my wife (same girl!) got me a starter kit for my birthday and things have progressed from there.
  • Two Hearted clone and a slightly adjusted Cream of 3 Crops from Biermuncher - my first two AG brews.
  • Rarely secondary.
  • Heavy bourbon stout, a few Oktoberfests, an off-the-mark Guinness clone and a few straglers.
  • The rest of the Oktoberfest and the last of my wheat beer.

    Sorry to resurrect. How close of a clone is this? Any changes the author would suggest (or
    anyone else who has made it)? My brother in law requested a Yuengling-like beer, and it is
    surprisingly diffi...

    @mwfishy, @seckert:Any updates from either of you?Looking for a good clone recipe (more worried
    about flavor than color). Thanks

    SWMBO doesn't have that kind of patience. If I haven't touched it in a year (and we haven't
    specifically talked about the plan for it), I have to start keeping a really close eye on it or
    it will disa...

    P.S. Secondary is your choice, but is certainly not necessary (strictly speaking). I personally
    would NOT secondary an IPA (or Hef or anything else that is best fresh), but I have been known
    to occasi...

    Totally salvageable. Like you said, DON'T strain into secondary. You could cause oxidation that
    is good prior to fermentation, but BAD afterward. Cold crashing will help (ie, getting it cold
    to clear ...

    Even though you are all-grain brewing technically you are doing BIAB. To me, not a giant
    difference, even though I use a bag for part of my all-grain to lighten the total weight of my
    BK/ mash tun.It'...

    Or put the pot into your oven (after heating to the lowest temp setting and turning off).
    Assuming it will fit.

    Every time I borrow something from a fiend, something goes awry.

  • Posted in thread: Yeast starter question. Stirplate and yeast cake on 03-23-2015 at 09:17 PM
    IME, if the starter was finished, you should see yeast start to precipitate out almost
    immediately after removing from the stirplate. If it was not completely finished and it is a
    low-flocculating yea...

  • Posted in thread: where to get food grade/human grade ethanol and muriatic acid? on 03-14-2015 at 07:22 PM
    The ethanol at your local gas station (E85, for example) has been denatured to keep people from
    drinking it. Not sure how it's denatured. Don't use it for anything but fuel.
