  • Started brewing in July of 2010. I enjoy it very much. I primarily do extract brewing with the occasional mini-mash. I am thinking of getting into all-grain some day but time doesn't allow at the moment.

    Interesting idea, I would be nervous about the bacteria component of Kombucha in my keg. You
    would need to be very sure you cleaned it thoroughly before using the keg again. Also, I don't
    know how wel...

    wow, thank you. This is a major relief. I appreciate you looking at this and weighing in before
    I did something drastic!

    This is my first attempt at making Kombucha and there is a brown formation at the top that has
    me a bit nervous. It has been going for about a week. I fear it is mold, based on what you can
    see in the...

    Greetings HBT family,I am sure this has been covered many times over but I couldn't find it
    with a quick peruse. I have a new (to me) Corny keg and have put my beer into it, gotten it
    carbonated, and ...

    Alright,I have adjusted my recipe some. I have removed most of the mini-mash/steeping
    ingredients. I decided that the White Wheat and Munich would be more work than benefit with the
    amount of hopping ...

    thanks Bob.I will definitely be making a starter- and actually the honey and corn sugar are in
    there with the intent to dry the beer out. I also might take a lb of dry extract out to bring
    the alcohol...

    I have not brewed this beer yet but I would like some thoughts. It will be a very heavy IPA but
    that's what I want. I have a new baby on the way and I gave up beer while my wife can't enjoy
    it with me...

  • Posted in thread: Muddy Mon Black IPA on 02-24-2012 at 04:00 PM
    Mine is darker than I had planned. It turned out really good, but if I could do it again I
    would scale back on the amount of grains I used a little bit. The carafa added great color and
    flavor, so it ...

  • Posted in thread: Muddy Mon Black IPA on 02-02-2012 at 02:08 PM
    I did follow this recipe and it is currently spending its second week in the primary. It is by
    far the darkest beer that I have ever brewed. You are right, I probably could have skipped
    sparging, the ...

  • Posted in thread: Imperial Rye Ipa on 01-20-2012 at 05:24 PM
    Im using a 6.5 gallon ale pale as my fermenter with a standard airlock. Do you think it would
    be better to use my 5 gallon pete carboy with a blow off? I would definitely use the larger
    fermenter. You...
