    ABOUT ME

  • Beer
  • Mike
  • Rock, (hard & punk), Jazz
  • JE, (froggyfrog), got me into brewing. Or maybe I made him allow me to participate. It's hazy, at best. Either way, I jumped straight into all-grain, and have never stopped to look back. I have no fear of trying new things, doing things slightly "against the rules", don't give two sh*ts about "what some book says", and am willing to put anything into a beer, just to see what becomes of it. Except tomatoes. (Don't ask me, ask the frog.) I brew what I drink, and fortunately, I make some rather good beer, except for those couple of batches that I hated, and some of the rest of you really liked. You know who you are, and I thank you for drinking them.

    Why would you need an airtight container to store the uncrushed grains. This is how my grains
    are stored. These grains have not been malted if that should make a difference but the wheat
    has been in t...

    Buy a corona mill, base malts in bulk, and store them in their original sacks in a 55g trash
    can with lid. You'll fit a couple sacks in a can. Buy your specialty malts as needed when you
    buy your yeas...

    I'm not sure what you mean.Are you referring to diastatic power for conversion?I was referring
    to the change in body added by the flaked oats. I would think that that change would be minimal
    after a c...

    I'd swap some of the flaked oats for oat malt. 31% would just be too much, for too little gain,
    IMO.

    Perfect! And +1 for using Bing rewards. Reminds me that I need to check mine. Haven't looked in
    months.

    Doesn't matter. People are taking things like Yelp reviews WAY too seriously these days. Not
    all business owners understand that you cannot please everyone, all of the time.

    I routinely mix beer and mead to see the effects.+1Especially with stouts.

    Wing cappers grab the roughly 1/2" lip at the top of the neck, and "smoosh" the cap down on the
    bottle. If that lip is too short, like on some "stubby" bottles, a wing capper won't work. A
    bench cappe...
