  • Homebrewer for about 9 months. Favortie styles are Belgian Ales, English and European Ales, and American IPAs
  • Wife bought me a kit several years back and it was a complete disaster because I let the yeast go bad. Got some expertise from a great Belgian brewer in the area and love the challenge of making this style.
  • Two Hearted Clone, Founders Breakfast stout clone, Dogfish 90 minute IPA, Strong Belgian Golden ale or Tripel, and fix my Hefe that turned out so so last go around.

    Folks this is somewhat a political issue, so if I've posted it in the wrong place please
    forgive me....but I felt like it was too important for people to miss. We call this crony
    capitalism and it's a...

    great question. I've been wondering the same thing. Don't want to lose all the yeast when I
    rack to secondary, but would like less sediment transfer.

    I'm intrigued by this because I'm trying to forumlate a recipe that my wife will like and is
    not too bitter. She does not like IPAs. So I'm in your camp for using citra and centennial.
    Only thing I kn...

    Just a bit. "High Fructose Corn Syrup" is just sugar. Fish bladder? They mean isinglass. That
    crap is just fear-mongering. I support getting people to drink craft beer but this isn't the
    way to do it....

    finish than the ...

    It's been almost 3 weeks and I tried one last night. I am very pleased with the results. My

    but that could...
