    OK, let's examine the typical weekend:18 holes of golf (maybe 36, if it's a PERFECT
    weekend).Some fly-fishing on the local river (if it's to crappy to play golf).Home repairs (who
    the hell broke the t...

    Ok, here's the deal...I brewed a Red Ale last week. At the last minute made a quick decision to
    toss 4 quarts home-canned peaches, syrup and and all, in the brewpot at flame out. Don't EVEN
    ask the gl...

  • Posted in thread: Another fruit question, canned peaches... on 02-25-2006 at 03:10 PM
    We've got an overabundance of of home-canned peaches this year and I want to possibly try a
    peach hefe or pale ale soon. They are packed in quart jars in a light sugar syrup. I plan to
    chop them up in...

    Our cellar/crawlspace is in the high-40s in the winter and the mid-60s in the summer. I am a
    proponent of cold conditioning for clarity. In my bottling days, carbonation after a couple
    weeks of cold c...

    Pig Swill? PIG SWILL!?!?!? :D :D :D I usually do an extended secondary for "conditioning", but
    this was a recipe that could be rushed as it always seems to mature quickly. AND I was showing
    off, of co...

    A "new-brewer" friend and I brewed batches at my house two weeks ago - him a Belgian Wit and
    myself an English Mild.Anyway, he's really thinking about a kegging system. So while he bottled

    Pigeon Poop Porter"A truly excrement brew" :cross: In Utah we have a plethora of seagulls on
    the Great Salt Lake, AKA Sky Carp.Think this poo-poo exchange would represent a "true to style"

  • Posted in thread: Your best "secret" techniques? on 02-15-2006 at 03:20 PM
    Most brewstores that deal with kegging sell a special padlock that goes on the tap - they're

    the keg and t...
