  • Started brewing when a friend's dad, who was a winemaker, helped me brew my first batch in 1990. It was a Mount Mellick American Light prehopped can, and it wasn't bad. I made few more as the years went by, but not often enough to get good at it.rnrnrnI've slacked off lately due to remodeling of our house, and other commitments that I can't seriously put off any more. Hopefully I'll be stocking my fridge again real soon.

    You have several stores nearby. It could be that he is feeling a financial strain from the
    oversupply. Maybe he can't justify the loss on this deal against his bottom line.Not your
    fault, but as a way...

    Well, he screwed up. He sold you an item he didn't have with the anticipation that he would
    have it and be able to sell it at the price he sold it to you for.His recourse should be to

    Yup, Kai did some experiments on that. 168 is considered safe to sparge with to not extract
    tannins, although I think time and pH are factors as well, so for batch sparging where you know
    your sparge ...

    No worries, it's a style that's hard to mess up. I bet it will be great and you'll just tweak
    it a bit to make it the best for your tastes.

    I'd like to remind people that in certain areas you may need to have your water checked several
    times a year, since the source of household water can change seasonally.I had my water checked

    A "well performed" fly sparge will be substantially more efficient. Commercial breweries I've
    spoken to are achieving 92 to 95% efficiency and they're not batch sparging.FWHopping has been
    in use for ...
