    Nope, no pickle jars were used. I understand they were picked, packed and stored in freezer
    bags. No idea, but I will say that I've had the HARDEST time getting the pickle aroma and taste
    out of glass...

    I received a pound of wet Cascade hops that someone grew, and was delighted to start crafting
    an all-cascade IPA with the help of some dry additions for FWH, so that the wet hops could be
    showcased as...

    Jake, Do you have results on the Altbier experiment yet? I am wondering if the off flavors you
    are getting are from underpitching/underareating your yeast, and you are getting Diacetyl
    flavors coming ...

    Where at in Maumee do you work? My 9-5 is in Arrowhead Park so I can't be too far away! I've
    looked at a few locations out here, but nothing is jumping out at me.I work in Maumee (office
    in Arrowhead ...

    Does anyone else refer to to Toledo as the dollar beer capital of the US? I have a tough time
    finding good beer and food at the same restaurant.I Don't think you're trying very hard,
    friend. I have my...

    Just wanted to give everyone an update; I cold-crashed the carboy of Altbier yesterday in hopes
    of getting some of that not-very-flocculent German Ale yeast to settle down.I bottled a case of
    it using...

  • Posted in thread: Testing Base Malts with SMaSHes on 06-09-2013 at 07:49 PM
    I did an experiment like this, but changed hops instead of malts. I didn't work out as well as
    I had hoped, but the experiment was a success in that I hopped the same wort with five
    different hop vari...

    Very true. Also, you don't need to push out all 5 gallons of solution, in fact, there's no need
    to make 5-gallons of it. Just make 1-gallon, shake it around for a minute, then apply just
    enough CO2 to...

    Even if it's oilless, Those compressors can hold a lot of nasties. I just think of all the
    water that comes out of my tank when I open the valve on the bottom and it makes me cringe
    about possibly hav...
