Posted in thread: Would this be a good English Brown Ale recipe? on 09-04-2015 at 09:36 PM
The Vienna and Munich may provide bit more sweetness than straight 2 row or Marris Otter, but
I'd say it'd be a solid brown/brown porter/mild none the less weighing at 4/5% ABV.The
chocolate malt will...
Posted in thread: Ruby's Red Amber Ale, Help me decide which grain bill on 09-04-2015 at 09:19 PM
As far as color is concerned, using my 5 gallon batch settings in Beersmith, the first grain
bill should give you a beer that's about 13 SRM, which is at the lower end of the BJCP style

Thanks for the replies! Just a random thought that kept nagging me during lunch.

This may be a dumb question, but who uses a garden hose just for cleaning?My wife is getting

So, my last three beers have all been rather bland after 4-5 days in the keg, but after 3ish
weeks and beyond, they opened up and tasted as they had, or better, from the fermentation

Posted in thread: Beer lost flavor after a few days in the keg. on 05-21-2014 at 10:38 PM
For anyone that cares, I was able to "fix" my beer.It's been suggested that an infection
(gusher to be exact) or oxidation was the culprit, and neither make sense. I don't see how a
gusher infection c...

I suppose that makes the most sense. I've just never had a beer go from great to flavorless in
a matter of two days. I must have a weird spring sinus thing or something... Thanks for the
