  • Iv been brewing for years, and started out with extracts. Now I'm into all grain, and I'm completely consumed with the hobby. Iv spent all day on Home Brew Talk. Com getting an education.

    I also love machinery such as cars, steam locomotives and big trucks. I love old trucks such as the ones from the 1940s. They had that gear sing ( noise) that only came from that era.

  • I saw an article in the news paper back in the 1980s about home brewing. By then it was finally legalized. Iv been always interested in making wine but I didn't think making beer was possible for the every day guy. The article mentioned a home brew supply shop, so I went and they hooked me up with my first home brew kit. My beer never turned terrible every time I brewed. I turned by friends onto brewing and there's came out great.

    Off and on through the years iv been brewing or not. Lately I started brewiig all grain and got away from extract brewing. Now im back into it full bore. My beers still tast a little bit on the terrible side but im trying to figure out that.

  • Posted in thread: What beer(s) have you lost interest in since homebrewing? on 11-12-2009 at 02:54 AM
    All of them until now. I haven't had a home brew sense last April. Time to get back into it. I
    still like all the commercial beer, including Bud, Miller and Coors. Plus all the fancy stuff.

    I dry hop all the time. I sanitize the scissors and hop package and funnel. I dump them in and
    thats that. My last batch I dry hoped with hop plugs. So I had hop leaves to deal with. I put
    the syphon ...

    Does beer get any better then this stuff? My latest batch boiled down to a little less then 5
    gallons by mistake. Now its thicker and malt yer witch balances out the bittering hops even

    Some guys are leaving the air lock off and putting a sanitized piece of aluminum foil over the
    top of the carboy. I'm doing that on my latest batch so the fermenting beer can breath. If you
    leave the ...

    I bet your beer is going to very dry. You may get a little sour going on. When iv left my
    cooler full of spent grains over night, it got a little funky smelling. Bacteria love sweet
    wort. In your case...

    With a false bottom the vorlauf should do the trick. A braid would on the other hand would end
    up with some serious dead space if it's not down on the bottom (glue?)No matter where the braid
    is, it do...
