  • Learned about real beer when a local brew pub started offering $1 pints of their micro brew at happy hour. Started going to a beer bar with a coworker. Finished someone's half gone Caracole and fell in love with Belgians. Same coworker invited me over for a brew day. I brewed my first batch shortly thereafter.

    Did extract & steeping grains for a while. Started doing partial mashes with grain bags and eventually started doing all grain brew in a bag style. I occasionally chill a batch normally but for the most part I use the no chill technique.

  • Posted in thread: Adding amylase to carbed keg on 04-03-2014 at 01:38 AM
    The problem you might face is that the amylase needs active yeast in order to actually drop the
    gravity. If this beer has been in the keg for a few months then you prob won't have enough
    yeast in susp...

  • Posted in thread: Florida brewer having difficulty getting wort to pitching temp on 03-12-2014 at 02:27 AM
    I'm in Florida as well. Aside from doing some radical like going to No Chill brewing, you could
    chill down to 80F or so with your ground water, transfer to the carboy, then stick that into a
    beverage ...

    I've got a Mild on tap that I used the Newcastle strain in. I like it a lot and will rebrew
    this exact recipe again within another month or two.

  • Posted in thread: Does anyone else think Sam Adam's beer sucks on 02-17-2014 at 11:57 AM
    I've enjoyed a lot of their beers over the years, but am I the only one who thinks they keep
    putting out basically the same White Ale with wheat/spices under different names? Seriously,
    they've done t...

  • Posted in thread: Baltic Porter yeast? on 02-13-2014 at 12:29 AM
    Honestly, if you are using kits and unsure about yeast management, then trying to brew a 10%
    ABV Baltic Porter is a terrible idea. That's a really hard beer to nail properly. You would
    need a HUGE sta...

    Are there any hops that would work well in this style of ale? I figure some bittering hops
    would be required to counter any overly sweet tastes?Well, I would suggest getting the base
    Toffee Ale down f...

    That's interesting data, shaun. This thread is re-awakening my desire to nail down an English
    Toffee Ale once again.However, I have some doubts about the advice you got from the
    brewer."Scotland has t...

    I've got that Mangrove Jack's West Coast Ale Yeast fermenting in a Pale Ale right now. Have you
    tried any of their other strains, eulipion2? This is my first time using them, but I am

  • Posted in thread: Adding fermentables to trigger a D-rest for lager after primary, will it work? on 01-07-2014 at 02:03 PM
    Krausening is just adding fresh wort to lagered beer with a dose of fresh yeast, correct? If
    so, that's SORTA what I'm talking about. I wouldn't add any yeast, since the yeast that just
    got done eatin...
