  • Started homebrewing maybe 12-15 years ago. Eventually became brewmaster at a local brewpub in central New Jersey. When that closed, I left that industry. With children, I pretty much stopped brewing. Now I'm getting back into it -- kind of like riding a bike.

    New LHBS in a big town like Orlando? Isn't that a violation of the Geneva Convention? :(I did a
    quick Google search and found this: https://www.heartshomebrew.com/. Don't know anything about,
    but ther...

    Before you add more yeast, why is your fermentation stalled out at 1.025? Is it possible that
    it is just finished, and more yeast won't change anything? Is it possible you really just need
    to gently r...

    I guess I meant to say plastic or glass doesn't matter. There are plenty of threads to debate
    the relative merits of carboys vs. buckets -- I don't want to go into that here. My point
    obviously was th...

    The fermentation vessel has little or nothing to do with how your beer turns out. Yes, small
    scratches in the plastic can shelter infections, but if that was your problem, you'd know. I've
    been using ...

  • Posted in thread: hello and Q on english brown ale on 05-15-2015 at 10:10 AM
    I would use an English Ale yeast instead of the American II. I like to use White Labs 007
    English Ale in my brown ales -- this is equivalent to Wyeast 1098 Whitbread. I have found it
    works nicely with...

    Have you considered dry hopping your beer? Developing a crisp hoppy aroma can enhance your
    perception of the hop flavor.

  • Posted in thread: Craziest fermentation so far on a yeast I've used before on 03-28-2015 at 12:15 PM
    You may have gotten a fresher vial of yeast (I'm assuming you did not use a starter). What was
    the temperature of the wort when you pitched your yeast -- you may be fermenting between 61-68,
    but could...
