I've had my Zymatic for a week now, and it's really an incredible machine. Did back to back

Posted in thread: Three simulataneous carboy explosions... what do I win on 03-05-2015 at 03:59 AM
Just one example (and I've got more) is when I broke a glass carboy full of wort in my pool.
You've reached a low point when it's January and you sneak out of the house after your wife is

I see that Picobrew in the background. You must have gotten one of the first ones, huh? How do

Posted in thread: Imperial Stouts on 02-06-2015 at 02:02 AM
I understand that I can drink my beer whenever I want and that I don't have to follow
convention. That's not what I'm asking. I'm just curious why it is recommended that we age big
stouts and porters ...
Posted in thread: Imperial Stouts on 02-05-2015 at 11:52 PM
