  • 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. 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.

  • Posted in thread: I think my beers are oxyidized on 07-25-2016 at 10:20 PM
    I certainly can't taste the effects of oxidation, so I would say that I don't have oxidation
    issues. :)This is exactly how I feel about it. While I'm not dumb to the fact that oxidation
    is, in fact, o...

    Where in PA are you? I have no use for 2.5's, but I know someone who does.

  • Posted in thread: How Long do YOU Ferment in primary? on 07-22-2016 at 12:48 AM
    I'm never in a hurry. I usually don't make time-sensitive, hop-forward beers, so my beers sit
    anywhere from a couple weeks to a couple of months.I only secondary if it's something getting
    an addition,...

    You could buy this for pretty
    cheap: have one, and love
    it. Some attach the top tier to the side instead, and make it a single tie...

    14 pounds of grain and 17.5 quarts of water will use 5.5 gallons worth of space in your cooler.
    The rackers calculator is accurate, and Beersmith gives me the same number. If it's indeed a
    6.6 gallon ...

    I'm feeling a bit sluggish this morning from too much beer, and too little sleep. I'd love to
    go with something like Sammy Hagar, very loudly, to get my blood flowing. Unfortunately, I
    don't think my ...

  • Posted in thread: Maillard Malts, who's used em' on 07-16-2016 at 04:17 PM
    My understanding is that no one new is making the NB malts or extract. It's just repackaged and
    relabeled stuff from all the usual maltsters.A good way to find out what the original brands
    actually we...

    13 fermenters, with many of them in use at all times with beer, wine, or mead.
