  • Just got curious and bought a kit and made an IPA which turned out to be one of the best beers I've ever had. So I pursued to make a few more and me nor my friends have been disappointed yet. Overtime I am accumulating more equipment and improving my brewing methods. Much to the help of all of you here at HbT.

    It's a noble effort to try to help people think differently about brewing, but she may be a
    lost cause. I know one thing is for sure, I wouldn't hire someone that would say what she said.
    For one thin...

    Didn't get much as my wife leaves it up to me to buy brewery equipment.Got a receipt for my
    Milk Stout recipe that the wifey ordered online for me, a book called "Brewed Awakening" and

    For what is worth, when I batch sparge I do it twice. Your exact method but I just divide up
    the water into two batches. Once I started doing this method my efficiency did improve.

    I generally bottle condition for 2 weeks before I try one. I have found 2 weeks to be adequate
    but 4-6 weeks is ideal.

    Sorry I didn't see that you wanted extract.I believe that if you look on their bottle it states
    the hops and other information on the beer. Good call just using Centennial instead of

    Beersmith has a recipe and they are typically pretty close, here is the link: that amount of

    By Conditioning I mean that I spritz my grain with water before I crush it.I have to look at
    the crush when I get it. I may have to run it through my mill if I see a bunch of whole
    kernals. I'm just w...

    So I just realized (while watching a re-run of Moonshiners) that I accidentely ordered
    'Crushed' grain from Northern Brewer instead of 'un-crushed.'I usually condition my malt and I
    have had great suc...

    So I'm in between brews and was bored. No school, no basketball practice, so I decided to

    coffee table w...
