Posted in thread: Anyone try BRY-97 yet on 11-05-2013 at 03:07 PM
I rehydrated this in a corn sugar solution @ 80F for 4 hours and pitched into a Fat Tire clone
Saturday evening at 68F. Had a nice foamy head on my beaker when I pitched. Had activity by mid
Posted in thread: Fermenter lid blew off on 04-26-2012 at 03:17 PM
I did an imperial IPA about 2 months ago that blew the top off. Sampled one yesterday and it's
delicious. You'll be fine. If it was fermenting vigorously there's little chance that anything
nasty can ...

Makes sense. I've actually had a bottle of Two Hands Brilliant Disguise (Moscoto style, but
different grapes) blow it's cork in the summer. Thing scared the crap out of me. It was about
3am and it sho...

I've decided to try making wine (don't like the stuff myself). It's for my wife and her
friends. They love Moscato so I decided I'll give it a shot. My question is about degassing.
They like the "fizz...

Kegerator or full grain setup...decisions decisions....I'm thinking kegerator though :P
Posted in thread: First Apfelwein, is it ready? on 11-30-2011 at 05:10 AM
I prepared my first batch of Apfelwein almost 5 weeks ago, but I can still see bubbles crawling
up the side of the carboy. It's not a lot, but it's enough to make me think it's still
fermenting. I was...
Posted in thread: Ever have a credit card number stolen??? on 02-17-2011 at 02:13 PM
Settle down folks. I got hit by this after placing an order with AHS on 1/28, but guess what,
it's not the first time. I got hit last year after using my card while traveling (I'm guessing
one of the ...

Well, they got me. Ordered 1/28. Got hit with bogus charges on 2/12.
Posted in thread: Flying with bottled beer on 06-03-2010 at 05:53 AM
I flew from Brussels to NYC to Richmond with a suitcase full of various beers. Most were highly
carbonated...3 volumes or more is my guess. I didn't have a single issue. I will say that all
but 4 of t...
Posted in thread: Looking for an easy first partial mash brew on 06-03-2010 at 05:43 AM
I've done the swamp cooler method before, just not in the summer. I'm not sure I can get it to
work well. I'm cheap so my temps in the summer fuctuate from 82deg during the day (no one home)
to 76 in ...
