  • Started brewing in August of 2010 with extract for about a year. Switched to all grain and never looked back. Brew to season and love trying new recipes and styles. My local club is the White Street Brewers Guild of Wake Forest, NC. Cheers! -Chris

  • I brewed extract for about a year and then migrated to All-Grain. I worked up a Corona Mill mounted it to a bucket, converted a 48qt Coleman cooler for my MLT (with hot water heater SS mesh hose with copper coil inside), and a 9G brew bot. I've moved outside for brews on my Bayou Classic Turkey Fryer set up (SWMBO is very happy about that).rnrnAlways reading magazine and web articles to better my brew practices. Love this addition/hobby. -Chris

    I thought I had a stalled fermentation. I made a Riverwest Stein Clone (see below) with an OG
    of 1.047 ( I missed my OG by 10 points but I digress). I read this month's Zymurgy where it
    talks about st...

    Hey gang,I recently brewed an English Mild and "pumpkinized" it. I went really light on the
    spices and it still came out too spicy for my taste. Instead of giving it away to people that
    really love sp...

    Thanks. My club has a competition in the spring at a small brewery. Winner gets to brew on
    there system but they don't want to tie up their fermenters by lagering. Will definitely try a
    true lager yea...

    I think in a recent zymurgy, I saw a recipe for a Baltic Porter with Wyeast 2112 California
    Lager yeast. It got me thinking...Last fall and winter, I brewed an Oktoberfest and Bock with
    Wyeast 1007 Ge...

    It's typically 1.25 quarts per pound for mash water but I usually round up based on my water
    pitcher (1/4 Gal. increments). After hour ( I do 45), I do a 1G "mash out" at 180+ deg F, then
    run off. Tha...

    I hear ya. I bought 1/2" SS fender washers at Home Depot and had a guy at my company's machine
    shop bore them for 5/8. You should be able to find them online at Fastenal. Hope that helps.
