    Hi Keith,Sorry for never posting myresults... It was quite a while ago that I made this, and I
    distinctly remember this being a frustrating brew day. Low sg, bursting hoses, boilovers and
    the like. Th...

    Hey guys! I've been working on a tentative clone recipe of the insanely tasty Imperial red from
    Great Lakes, and I'm finally gonna brew it next tuesday.Here's a link to the description on
    Great Lakes'...

    That looks awesome, I'll be interested to hear how it turns out! My only critique is that it
    may be a bit heavy on carapils.I was considering scratching the carapils altogether and subbing
    1# of flake...

    Hey everyone! I'm brewing with 3 of my buddies this weekend, all of whom are just now getting
    into brewing, to show them my process and give them some tips. By the way, I'm by no means an
    expert, just...

    I have one of those. Can I use the tubing off of the auto siphon?You can, but for me I would
    say a bottling bucket is still the way to go. Connecting the wand to your siphon would tie up
    one hand at a...

    For some reason this question popped into my head: would it be better to dry hop for the 10
    days just before you pull the oak and presumably bottle? I always assumed the aroma gained from
    dry hopping ...

  • Posted in thread: Which Bourbon for Bourbon Stout? on 12-24-2013 at 07:27 PM
    I've only made two, but both of them were oaked with french cubes soaked in knob creek (first
    batch) and wood ford reserve (second batch). Both were good, but I found the wood ford to be a
    little over...

    If your heart is set on 1 gal batches, then rock on, go you. However, when I started brewing I
    went into my LHBS and asked the big bearded guy the same questions, he made a good point…
    You're ba...

    Don't touch it!!! You obviously did something right, because you had krausen (the foam you are
    referring to) but once it starts to ferment, the last thing you want to do is introduce oxygen
    (i.e. shak...

  • Posted in thread: Dry Hopping Question on 12-23-2013 at 05:25 PM
    As long as the gravity has remained constant for a couple days, you should be okay to bottle.
    are you worried about leaving the hops in too long? I'll usually hop for 14 days, and I've
    never experienc...
