  • All grain brewer. Starting to get a handle on the process; now I'm refining processes and trying more ambitious techniques (decoction, home roasting, etc). The answer was more equipment.

    I brew with my roommates. One of them, Judith, is also here. As Judd. Like, on this website. I think Cameron might be here too?

    I've just co-founded the King's Brewing Collective, a homebrew club for King's College in Halifax. We've got high hopes.

    I am in love with these guys right now. I mean, I've had good luck with their products before,
    but now I'm just glowing.On Thursday night I smacked a packet of Belgian Ardennes (Chouffe)

    Beef, marinated Indian-style in yoghurt, with dried fruit. Seasoned with black cardamom and
    coriander. It's a fairly sweet, mild dish, creamy with a mild dried fruit tanginess. This is
    not a bold hot ...

    Eh, just a t-shirt, the room it's in is north-facing but with lots of indirect light. If it's a
    light beer, I'll use a darker shirt, but it's basically what's sitting around. Never had a
    skunking prob...

    The only off-readings it would cause are pre-fermentation, and it sounds like you didn't take
    one (which is well enough, as extract OGs are usually dead-on).The fermentation going on now
    will already ...

  • Posted in thread: I have a wit that is 2 days old right now... on 08-27-2008 at 03:19 AM
    I'm trying to find a picture of my wit in the fermenter. It looked quite brown looking right
    down through it in the carboy. It is pale straw (hoegaarden-coloured) in the glass.If it's an
    extract recip...

  • Posted in thread: Silly Question--Pronunciation of "Wit" on 08-27-2008 at 03:15 AM

    pronounced "vit'-beer"

    Looks almost identical to the mold infection I had recently.I don't have a good picture (just
    fuzzy cell phone video) but I bottled anyway. Wasn't able to rack cleanly from beneath (some
    got mixed in)...

    Wood has a pretty high oxygen permeability, relatively speaking, and I've heard of some pretty
    decent brews being aged in that.Just sayin'
