Posted in thread: Any worse beer destination than Mexico? on 06-23-2013 at 10:13 PM
I'll second Bohemia, Indio, and Negra Modelo. All welcome alternatives to Corona and Dos Equis
(which I will drink when the time is right). I love a hoppy beer, but not when the ambient
Posted in thread: Ferm chamber below 40 degrees on 06-07-2013 at 03:01 PM
The ice buildup is likely throwing temps off. Ice forms around 32 F. The fridge thinks it is
about that cold (likely a bit warmer as air is being circulated and the thermostat is not going
to be super...
Posted in thread: Oxi Clean to water ratio - Did my brewing book go overboard? on 06-02-2013 at 09:17 PM
I tend to use OxiClean in the ratio of about 2ish scoops (which is nearly half a cup) to 5
gallons of water. Hot water. I mean really hot water, the hotter the better. I really don't
think about it mu...

I'm usually buying it in a very densely populated area. Don't understand it. It is the only
brand I've had this issue with. I am not judging the beers based on what I've had from the
bottles. The Foun...

When I find it package, it's always old. I am yet to have a good IPA by founders because I buy
a six, get home, pour a glass, taste it and think its "off", then check the date and see that
it's a year...

It's been a while since I looked at this thread, so I just read the last ten pages. It's
awesome to see so many Michigan brews outside Michigan. I love 'Huma Lupa Licious' and most
anything put out by...
Posted in thread: Beer fermenting in Bottle or what? on 04-25-2013 at 04:44 PM
I had a pumpkin ale I made last fall that developed the same pellicle. It developed after I
added my spice tea. I thought it could be from the oils in the freshly ground spices. I racked
from under it...
Posted in thread: I may be hooked... on 04-24-2013 at 05:10 PM
Congrats on your first beer. Dark Horse make a great IPA and now because of AIH so do you. It
feels good doesn't it? I used to drive from Ann Arbor to the old Taylor store to get
ingredients, Jason an...

I know it wasn't the point of your post, but I'm sorry for your loss. I wish I had been closer
to my dad. Even so, I'm having a glass of my Edmond Fitzgerald Porter in his memory. :mug:
Posted in thread: Copper surfaces reduce infections on 04-16-2013 at 01:12 AM
I know that many aquarists (and my local fish store) use copper to treat fish for infections
and parasites. In the right dosage, it's fine for fish, but harmful to invertebrates. I should
think that y...
