  • 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.

    :rockin:If the salt doesn't draw enough moisture out of the peppers to submerge them, add a
    little bottled water. You want an anaerobic environment for the lacto to work in. Mold will

    Ferment them. De-stem them, grind them up, mix in a good amount of salt, add a bit of water to
    cover them if needed, and ferment them like you're making sauerkraut. Add some lactobacillus is
    you want ...

  • Posted in thread: How can I push captured rain water through my Reverse Osmosis machine? on 04-30-2016 at 04:15 PM
    I've thought about making a rainwater beer, myself. But more to experience the different
    mineral makeup of the water, rather than just utilizing a free source of water. My plans were
    to run it through...

  • Posted in thread: How to compute ABV for added honey on 04-30-2016 at 02:30 AM
    Two pounds of honey in six gallons will add 12 points to your gravity. Use your OG+1.012 as
    your "honeyed OG". Once it ferments out, that is the FG reading you'll use. Then compute
    ABV.It's unlikely t...

    Why would I want to do industrial cleaning for crap money? Because that's what going pro will
    be like.Besides, I get to reward myself by drinking every drop of the beer I brew at home.
