  • Posted in thread: Secondary necessary for bulk aging? on 07-04-2014 at 07:44 PM
    If you are going to age it for that long, then yes, I would probably rack to secondary.However,
    are we sure that this beer needs it?I would say to give it extra time in primary, maybe a month
    or so, t...

  • Posted in thread: Heavy Toast Oak Powder --- Need Advice! on 06-15-2014 at 03:30 AM
    I used powder on one of my early brews, and I will never use it again. Besides that it was a
    pain in the rump to rack the beer out without that stuff getting in there (I think I ended up
    actually havi...

  • Posted in thread: Getting Started :: If I Knew Then What I Know Now on 06-12-2014 at 02:51 AM
    My thoughts are to start with extract (with or without steeping grains) and boiling as much of
    the batch as you possibly reasoning is that there are less steps, less to worry about
    with extract...

    If you're talking about a 5 gallon cask, you may need less time than that (also dependent on
    how often the cask has been used etc.for a small batch like that, there is so much surface area
    compared to...

  • Posted in thread: Best beer I've ever tasted on 06-09-2014 at 03:28 AM
    Best I ever tasted was the one I had after finishing the Mad River Century bike ride (100 miles
    in one day) in Vermont.Went to this little place in downtown Waterboro afterwards, had this
    beer.... wha...

  • Posted in thread: Is this 20 gallon kettle worth a new bottom? on 06-07-2014 at 02:55 AM
    Yeah, I wouldn't bother trying to repair it for boiling / liquid.I would think there is plenty
    of other things that could be done with it - get a wire brush applied to get all the loose
    stuff off, and...

  • Posted in thread: My LHBS Stores grain in Garbage bins, should I be concerned? on 05-30-2014 at 03:12 AM
    My theory is that as long as the cans never actually held garbage, and the grains in there are
    unmilled, you're fine.(I don't know if I'd take the last bits out of the bottom of the can; who
    knows how...

  • Posted in thread: Ran out of pbw can I use one step to remove bottle labels on 05-22-2014 at 12:49 AM
    Call me crazy, but why bother taking the labels off in the first place (other than submitting
    for competitions and so forth)I just keep my homebrew in it's own box, and use a sharpie to
    indicate what'...

  • Posted in thread: West Caribbean Cruise Advice ? on 05-19-2014 at 02:46 AM
    My advice for a cruise is to not expect much for beer. My parents and brother-and-sister in law
    were each on cruises this past winter, and the best they saw were Sam Adams (I wouldn't argue
    against th...
