  • 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.)rnrnI 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.

    house, I will continue to shop there.

    wrong.;)Here is the problem. And most brewers on here have this problem (YAY for you if you
    don't).I can't quite get there, but I (having 3 kegs) want 3 fullish kegs and 3 fermenters

    I haven't cooled before doing it, but I would imagine the results would be less impressive.160
    degrees might be enough to strip oils from the hops, but I can't imagine it will be as
    effective as doing...
