  • Original 11-30-11: I like craft beers, tried a few home brews from a coworker then from a friend of a friend. Sounded interesting but unapproachable (clearly a wrong assumption). I then saw the Alton Brown Good Eats episode on homebrewing.rnrnI decided this looked like something I could do. I then read up on the internet as much as I could including reading How to Brew nearly front to back, finding out along the way that Alton had the spirit right but some of his methods were questionable. rnrnI decided on the equipment I would need and ingredients for a first brew and headed to my LHBS.rnrnUpdate 4-5-12: Well and hooked to this hobby. In less then 6 months I've build a stirplate, temperature controller, fermentation chamber. I've bought a kegorator and added a 2 tap tower. I've brewed 11 times and made 3 batches of Apfelwein.

    transferred from my secondary (where I had the strawberries) to a keg (in your case bottling
    bucket) I s...

    I've made only 1 fruit beer but it happens to be a Stawberry wheat beer and it is amazing. Not
    sure if you are doing all grain, being the beginners forum I assume possibly not. Mine was done
    all grain...

    It's been a long time but I thought I'd report back with my results as anticlimactic as they
    are. I tried this adding the grains (1lb) at flame out but waiting ~15 minutes before starting

    I wouldn't add grain post boil.Why not? I'm not disagreeing I'm really just looking for reasons
    this will/won't work, or adverse effects. When I first thought of doing a grain add at flame
    out my firs...

    I was thinking about trying to brew a beer with a very pronounced honey aroma/taste. From what
    I've read/experienced it's more productive to use honey malt then actual honey. I'm wondering
    if you lose...

    I thought I'd share a bit of info. I will admit I didn't read all 254 pages of this thread but
    I've done searches for this and didn't come up with anything on this board. I was looking to
    create an ad...

    I've seen this as well and have thought about picking one up. It seems like the easiest and
    most efficient way to do an oak beer. I am also interested in hearing any feedback from anyone
    who has used ...

    I also recently bought from NY brew supply via Amazon as opposed to EBay. I had a mostly
    positive experience as well. I ordered a 50' copper IC . Delivery was quick and packaged well.

    This is great, had the parts I needed sitting around to try this and a test bottle worked
    great. I'll have to get an extra cobra tap so I don't risk breaking my second tap (untill I get
