  • Back after a few years off. Glad to be back doing this again. Below is my info from the early years.rn___________rnrnI have always wanted to try brewing, but never had gotten into it. after a conversation at a party in july 2008, i have decided to give it a go. i brewed my first "half" batch (2.5 gal) july 12th, 2008. i got the process and recipe off a website called instructables.com.rnrnI bottle my beer because I love to share as much as I like to drink it.

    Welcome to TN brewing! I live in Middle TN, but my job takes me all over the state. Maybe
    sometime when I am in Knoxville overnight I will check in and maybe we can meet up at Smokey Mt
    Brewery. I hav...

    I tend to mash at a higher temp~ 158 or so and it has worked well for me. Also I like Safale 04
    as a yeast because it doesn't dry out like a Nottingham.

    I just finished brewing my first smash this evening- nothing special but I think it will be
    great. 2row and Crystal. I love how crystal smells and it is my favorite hop other than
    fuggles. Can't wait ...

    This morning I was bottling a half batch of my Simple-Minded Ale that was brewed on the
    anniversary of my first brew day(July 10). I didn't have the right lid to my bottling bucket,
    so I was covering ...

    Howdy! I live in Nolensville and have been brewing for about a year. This is a great place to
    learn from some great homebrewers.

    I am brewing this now, but it looks to be a big more than the 2.5 gal I usually have. I over
    sparged to make up for the long boil time. Maybe it will boil down to where it needs to be, but
    I am throwi...

    Great info Dan. I would be interested in how close you feel it is when you omit the chocolate
    malt and go with pilsner malt, torrified wheat, crystal 10L, and use the hefe yeast. I am going

    It has been a while since I have been on! You guys have been having a great conversation about
    things here. I will say here that to call this a Woodchuck clone is a stretch after several
    batches- some...

    No worries flyweed... a bit more conditioning and the alcohol burn will fade and the other
    flavors will blend and mellow. One note, this isn't a very sweet brew- it has that Granny Smith
    apple sour, b...
