  • 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
    temperature is...

  • 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...

    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...

  • Posted in thread: Lost my drinking/ brewing buddy on 04-21-2013 at 11:00 PM
    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...
