  • My co-worker got me into homebrewing about a year and a half ago. I started with the Mr. Beer kits for about 6 months and then transitioned into extract brewing for the past year. I have done a little with steeping grains and extract brewing being that I am a huge stout and porter fan.

  • Posted in thread: When bottling off a keg why are my bottles having very little carbonation? on 06-03-2014 at 02:32 AM
    I keg all my beer and have been doing so for the past 2 years. Most recently I have started
    bottling my beer off of the keg in order to submit bottles for homebrew competitions.
    Unfortunately, in both...

  • Posted in thread: After lagering there was a weird film on top. on 04-15-2014 at 07:45 PM
    So after 2 weeks of lagering between 41-45 degrees I popped the top on the fermenter and found
    a weird film on top of the beer. Is this anything to be concerned with?

    I haven't used torrified wheat before. What characteristics does it add to the beer?

    Thanks for the feedback and various ideas. I will definetely take it all into account. I guess
    I think the fruity esters is the whole benefit of doing a Belgian IPA. Otherwise you would just
    be brewin...

    Any recommended recipes for a Belgian IPA? I am looking for ideas on what type of grain bill to
    utilize. I know some people choose to do just an American IPA grain bill using Belgian yeast.
    I'm thinki...

  • Posted in thread: Any idea why I have so much foam? on 05-29-2013 at 01:02 PM
    My initial thought is that you have residual cleaner/santizer in the lines. What did you use to
    clean your beer lines?After a few weeks the residual cleaner went away and I no longer had any
    extra foa...

    I currently have a 3.1% ABV Irish Red Ale on CO2. It is only at 6 psi and I still have about
    75% of my pint glass full of head/foam. About half of that dissapates after about 5 minutes. I
    have not had...

  • Posted in thread: Issues carbing Irish Dry Stout with beer gas on 12-18-2012 at 06:41 PM
    Well just to report back I went ahead and adjusted the stout to 30 psi for about 10 days and it
    had a great pour. It had the nice cascading effect that we expect to see with stouts on
    nitrogen. This m...

    I am an ex- Seattle resident. People living along the North Pacific coastal region are enjoying
    water of almost RO quality. Without doubt there are other localized regions with equally
    acceptable wate...

    Hmmm definitely increase your hops. Try 1.5 oz for bittering and feel free to add another ounce
    at 15 min. I'd also replace that Crystal-20 with something darker. Perhaps try adding some
    molasses or o...
