  • I'm a homebrew shop owner. Love fishing, boating, hiking, shooting guns, salsa dancing and of course homebrewing. I learned how to brew beer and wine from my grandpa and pretty much haven't changed to much on how I do it. I keep it simple and always have a chill mentality with it.

  • I learned how to make beer and wine from my grandpa. Being around brewing for most of my life it was a natural step to open up a homebrew shop.

    I do all-grain, extract with specialty grains, mead, wine. Pretty much I make what ever type of brew I can when I can.

    I make a lot of half batches because I brew so much (2 times a week or 3 if I can)

    I just keep mine in a metal trash can inside of the bag it came in. The metal will discourage
    any critters coming and eating up my grains.

    sounds like a berliner wiess (or how ever you spell it). It has its own specs, 17A I believe.

  • Posted in thread: converting all grain to liquid malt extract+grains? on 04-23-2012 at 03:40 PM
    you could do LME if you wanted to but it's just a different conversion. DME vs LME is just
    preference pro's and con's to either one.

    I just use gelatin in the secondary 1/2tsp per 5 gallons. Works better then either in my

    Maybe it depends on the type of bean that you use, but I have used 3-4 beans and it turns out
    pretty tasty after I leave it in the secondary for about 3 weeks. When I've done that its
    great.I just sli...

    It's most likely crushed and if it's not all-grain crushing won't be the end of the world. Just
    keep them at 150 for 30-45 min instead.

    I'd give them a go. Worst case scenario you have to re pitch.
