  • I haven't started brewing yet but this is all of the equipment I have acquired so far:

    two single handled 5gallon corny kegs,
    one 4.5gallon heavy toasted oak barrel,
    one 15.5gallon keg with the top cut off (will be used as a primary fermenter when I create a larger cold room),
    one modified kegerator large enough to fit two cornys,
    one dozen different brewing books ,

    plus I work in a bakery (and plan on brewing there and transporting the chilled wort back home in a sealed corny) we have two very large direct fired copper candy kettles that will hold 20+ gallons (potentially awesome for a boil kettle) . soon the bakery will be equiped with a hot water heater that will bring the hot water up to 180degrees and a water chiller that will bring the cold water down to 32 degrees (very handy for an immersion chiller) plus a ton of extreamly accurate scales.

    Is there anything that you guys think is missing in the commercial beer market? I don't mean a
    specific brewery's product that you wish was sold in your area. I'm talking more about a style
    of beer th...

    Just keep brewing beer on a regular basis and you'll get to where you want to go.Sounds like
    your trying to rush things and that always leads to burning out and the eventual quitting of
    what it is you...

    Keep it on the warmer side and try to keep the temperature regulated. Repeatedly making big
    temperature swings could cause problems.Also that yeast isn't the best for that style as it's
    estery especia...

    Old Foghorn reeks of crystal 120L.My guess would be +10% of C120.

    How many IBU's do you guys think 1845 has?

    I'm not so sure I would have cooked the pumpkin. Hopefully it won't disintegrate and leak.

  • Posted in thread: 80 shilling what do you think? on 09-29-2007 at 10:03 PM
    I'm in agreement, drop the last addition of target and the peat malt.

  • Posted in thread: Abita Pecan Harvest Ale on 09-20-2007 at 03:58 AM
    If you want a pecan beer I'd definitely check out Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan. The strange
    thing about that beer is that it has a final gravity of 1.018 and only 4% ABV.It's almost like
    Abita gets of...
