  • Several years ago, I had limited success making wine at home - I say "limited" because the batches were inconsistent. The whites that I made were incredible, while the reds were average. It is time to expand my horizons with the addition of beer.

    I still have some equipment from the winemaking adventure, and lots of it can be used for beer making.
    Since I have limited experience with brewing, I am thinking that my first batch is going to be from a kit. Besides, supposedly the results that you get from extract kits are phenomenal. My friend is on his 3rd or 4th batch and is achieving great results. He's considering upgrading to a higher capacity and adding the ability to go all grain. I brewed my third batch last week, and things are going pretty well so far.

    bubbling away at 63F right now, I'm about to let it free rise to 69-71 and start the dry hop
    schedule.

    Good to hear. The temperature I'm speaking of is ambient, and I caught it after about a day. I

    outside dropped to the mid forties and because of that the freezer that I use as a fermentation

    Looks pretty good to me but I might move the 30 minute hop additions to 5 or 10 so you don't
    lose the flavor and aromaNot a bad idea. Are the bittering units OK? As I move the 30 minute
    additions to l...

    Have you thought about bottle conditioning with maple syrup? I'm thinking of doing 5 gal of 90,
    5 gl of 60, blending, then dry hopping both, and bottling 5, then kegging 5.Thoughts?
