  • Posted in thread: Funny things you've overheard about beer on 05-14-2015 at 01:19 PM
    The Mrs and I stopped at a convenience store at the edge of town. I parked in the shade out
    back and the Mrs. was going in to pick up a couple of things. She asked if I wanted something
    to drink for t...

  • Posted in thread: Cream Ale Recipe (from A Noob) on 04-20-2015 at 01:23 PM
    Update on the recipe posted in Post #9: Started drinking this weekend. Matches the style well.
    Subtle malt and hops. Corn flavor is present but not overpowering. I think Perle is a good hop
    choice but...

    Sounds like you are brewing partial boils using extract. When you pitch your yeast you want two
    things: the right volume (e.g. 5+ gallons) and the right temperature for your yeast (65-70F,
    YMMV). How ...

    I use the sanitize cycle on my dishwasher also. Says "antibacterial", actually. No
    detergent/sanitizer in the dishwasher. Inspect and clean the bottles beforehand.

    Here is an old thread with positive comments on quoted recipe used
    Fuggles (could use Williamette) and Saaz for hopping ......

    IMO Cascade and Citra will not complement a cream ale well - too citrusy. Noble/noble-derived
    hops are usually recommended for cream ales so Liberty and Mt. Hood should be good choices.As
    it happens, ...

    For this batch: It is fermenting and you are making beer. Let it ferment for another week or
    two. Check FG with a hydrometer (see below). Bottle it using corn sugar or table sugar to
    prime: approx. .8...

    I am assuming you are talking about the screw off type caps. I tried it once but the top did
    not seal well and the beer did not carb. I think the secret is the little ring that is left at
    the bottom o...

  • Posted in thread: Messed up beer with Ice? on 07-08-2014 at 11:55 AM
    I use city tap water for both homemade ice added to the wort and for top off. Some risk but I
    have not had any problems. Commercial ice from the store may be a bit riskier since you don't
    know the sou...

  • Posted in thread: Kolsch or Pilsner Style Ale? Ferm temp on 06-25-2014 at 04:48 PM
    No answers for the OP questions. I am in the middle of a similar brew using Saaz and US-05, 1
    week @ 65F, 2 weeks @ 68F, 23 IBU calculated. Bottling this weekend.
