  • 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
    guidelines (11...

    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
    pissy at the little messes that are made inside after brewing, and all I do is clean the
    kettle, mash tun e...

    For what it's worth, I use tap water and just treat with a small piece of a crushed campden

    same water, unt...

    What about your aging practices when kegging?After primary, do you put it in the fridge and in

    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
    vessel.I've been ...

    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
