  • I like to cook and I'm also fairly handy. Plus, I really enjoy good beer.

    I have tried exactly one recipe -- 3 in a Bed Bitter -- courtesy of our friendly local shop, Homebrew Den, using a fairly standard beginner's setup (6.5 gal plastic fermentation bucket, etc.) from a kit they sell. This was last night's project. It was fun, and I plan to do it again.
  • I want to get proficient at cloning beers such as 60 Second IPA, and try my hand at Belgian ales.

    That's exactly all I need to do, less the bottom part (since the bucket will sit above the
    compressor. Thanks. The Dremel tool looks nice but I suspect I wouldn't get much use out of it
    beyond this pr...

    Thanks, that's very helpful. I am converting a Danby and for the clearance I need (for a
    5-gallon bucket) I could probably get away with removing even less than that.

    I'm considering using this fridge for a fermentation chamber (managed with a Johnson
    controller). I ferment small batches primarily in 5-gallon food-safe buckets like these:
    which I have drilled for...

    For a 3-gallon carboy, I was thinking of buying a second homer bucket (those three-dollar Home
    Depot buckets) and stacking them, with ice or gel packs between the two. The carboy will fit in
    the bucke...

    I'm doing this version -- a 3 gallon partial mash, based on evaluating all available recipes
    here and elsewhere and going for what my 2-gallon mini-mash tun can hold and what sounds good:
    1.5 lbs 2-ro...

    Thanks, YooperBrew. I will do this in my mini-mash-tun (built from a 2-gallon cooler) which has
    pretty good efficiency. Hoping to increase the number of successful 60-Minute IPA clones by
    women by +1 ...

    I am planning to do this as a partial-mash. For 5 gallons, I calculated the following: 2-row: 7
    lbsCaramel or crystal malt: 0.375 lbsLME: 4.5 lbsDoes that make sense? I realize the hops need
    a "bump" ...

    n00b lesson and question.Got up early today to brew a kit for E. J. Phair's Phat Quail Ale I

  • Posted in thread: How long to "Crushed" grains keep on 02-15-2009 at 07:27 PM
    I have a kit I bought in California last week and I put the grains in the fridge until I can
    get to it in a couple of weeks (I guess the fridge easily qualifies as a "cool, dry place").
    Generally any ...
