  • All grain brewer. I started out as extract + steeping grains then moved up to all-grain to get better control and save a little money each batch.rnTend to brew dark ales and british beers in the fall and winter and blonde ales, Belgian ales, and wheat beers through summer. I'm not a fan of the DIPA craze..give me roasted malts and yeast character! My Challenger English IPA is a little off balance but fantastic showcase of the blend of good malts, yeast character and earthy hops.

    I brewed this again back in July (three months ago) using wlp 500 (monastery ale). It's good
    but totally missing the huge fruitiness from the batch I brewed with wlp 540.

    I'll add another vote for Brown malt. Dark milds, stouts and porters really benfit from that
    deep toasty/roasty flavor. I had a beer epiphany the first time I tried Brown Malt in my
    standard stout rec...

    I'm interested in how long it's taking guys to get their water from tap to strike temp. I'll
    note mine next time.Usually my cheap banjo burner can heat 4.5 gallons from room temp to strike
    temp in 15 ...

  • Posted in thread: What's your next brew? Why? on 01-06-2016 at 02:13 PM
    Making Palmer's Elevenses because I am craving a good mild (and want to tweak my mild recipe)
    and a Vienna or Maris Otter SMaSH.I've been itching to do a double brewday and SMASH is a
    logical choice.

    Has anyone thought of turning this into a Dark Mild? I wonder if 0.25 lb of a dark malt
    (chocolate malt, debittered black malt, extra brown malt) would add or detract from the
    beer.Also, I have been t...

    After 2 years of brewing (about 15 batches) on a cheap $40 burner, I noticed the same problem.
    Rust and debris will clog the orifice beneath the disk that send gas to the fire. I used the
    brush attach...

Life is too short to drink cheap beer.
