    ABOUT ME

  • I have wanted to brew for the last 8 years, but temporary living situations, and a 4 year stint in Germany (right on the belgian border) kept me from assembling all the crap needed to brew until August 2013. I started all-grain and kegging right away, and thus wanted to build a nice system I can grow into. I also am a handy woodworker and have some wiring/engineering knowledge from work.

    How long does it usually take you to reach FG with 565 and that fermentation temperature
    profile?I have a temperature profile I use which takes 2 weeks to go through. I don't check
    in-between but afte...

    I think most people actually do regular fermentation temps. Most of the yeast flavor is locked
    in after a few days. If you let it go for a week and then warm it up, the end flavor shouldnt
    be too diff...

    Pulled the first pints of this one for the Super Bowl this weekend, this is far and away the
    best IPA I have made yet. There is tons of juicy citrusy flavor from the falconers flight
    '7-C's blend I us...

    I realized after i wrote it that I worded it incorrectly. I havent been breaking the valves
    down, i break the system down every time and put all the valves in a PBW solution to soak. So I
    may have a d...

  • Posted in thread: Where to start fermenting my first batch? on 02-04-2016 at 08:14 PM
    That actually sounds perfect. I would leave the fermenting beer in the basement around 62-65
    for the first 4-5 days, then bring it upstairs to finish up for about a week or two.Agreed,
    thats just abou...

  • Posted in thread: Any beer tips for Belgium (Leuven especially)...? on 02-03-2016 at 07:57 PM
    Thanks for the tips. We're trying to plan on visiting Cantillon, Rodenbach, Westvleteren, and
    St. Bernardus, but we've noticed a lot require groups of at least 15. We're going to call ahead
    and see if...

    I just brewed on saturday and was thinking about bottling some and kegging some to see if
    something arises in one and not the other.Carbonating water's a good test also. Probably
    unlikely the issue, ...

    Foosier's response also just triggered a memory of mine. Have you seen this horror story post
    on the Bluloshopher pageAfter reading it I went home and took apart my ball valves and was
    pretty grossed ...

    are you new to kegging or just get a new CO2 tank. I've read a few horror stories like yours
    where folks have traced it back to some industrial junk in their CO2 tanks. They changed out to
    a new Co2 t...
