  • I love beer and happened to read an article about home brewing in my local newspaper. I was surprised that one did not have to be chemistry major to craft a decent homebrew (although apparently, it does help!). Shortly after reading this article, an acquaintance invited me in for a sample of some of her home brews...just as good, if not BETTER than anything I'd ever purchased in a market. So...there you have it.

    I couldn't find any #70 o-rings anywhere. I see that somebody picked up some #60's. I'll give
    that a try!

    I wish I'd seen this sooner. I had no idea the probe thermometers weren't water proof! My
    readings were way off last time. Heading out to petsmart today to get some tubing.:o

    At least she didn't pull the crap my wife did ...I used to drive truck on Saturdays as a second
    job. I needed to get up super early that one day each week. One Friday night she would not let

    I can detect the extract "twang" in all of my previous brews. They weren't bad, but I could
    always pick up on a syrupy flavor. Today, I brewed my very first all-grain, in the hopes that I
    will ditch t...

  • Posted in thread: First brew - cooling the wort on 04-28-2008 at 06:03 PM
    I recently purchased a wort chiller and used it for the first time yesterday and I have to say
    I wish I'd gotten that thing way sooner! It got my wort down to 75 degrees in ten minutes. Even
    when I us...

    If it just smells like your dog farted in there, it should be fine- I can't believe I'm saying
    this. :eek: Skunk smells just like the name, skunky. I keep my carboy in a dark closet, but the
    closet ha...
