    I'll also add my voice to the Voodoo Maple Bacon. It tasted more like they mixed Guinness with
    rancid maple syrup, with bacon fat thrown in for good measure.However, at least I was able to
    finish that...

    I had gotten my first one in the mail about a month ago and read it cover to cover at least
    twice the first night I had it. I made the mistake of leaving it out on our ottoman overnight,
    and our dog a...

    Great! I'll definitely give it longer in the bottles. I'm actually bottling a Rogue Dead Guy
    clone tomorrow, so I'll let it sit a minimum of four weeks (three at 70 F and one in the
    fridge) before eve...

    I'm bottling my fourth batch, a Rogue Dead Guy clone. The samples I've taken for hydrometer

    I've got a few successful partial mash batches under my belt now, but I have run into a fairly
    consistent issue that I wanted some advice on: On two of the three batches, I've ended up with
    somewhere ...

    Two questions: are wort chillers (Immersion) worth the roughly $100 investment? How quick
    should you cool your wort below 100 degrees right after the boil? I ask this because after I
    did my second bat...

    I just brewed my second batch, an American-style hef with sweet orange peel, coriander, nutmeg,
    cinnamon and clove. Fermentation is going very smoothly (I did a starter for the first time).
    I'm going ...

    Hi all! My name is Jason and I just started brewing last month. My lovely fiance got me the

    some Saison....
