  • I have been brewing for just over 3 years. I'm also trying my hand at mead making. In what other little spare time I have I also enjoy playing guitar, and reading/watching sci-fi and fantasy.

    So I finally tried this beer after letting it bottle condition for a few weeks, and I have to
    say that I was pretty pleased with it. My tasting notes are as follows:A: Pours a clear, straw

    I love using this yeast. I've got some in a starter right now. It looks like you had some good
    proliferation, and I agree with the airlock comments above. That starter is ready for action.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I don't know where I messed my numbers up on BeerSmith
    originally, but I'm glad everyone pointed that out. I think a hop burst sounds just about the
    right speed. Thanks...

    With just the hops put in BeerSmith I get a similar number, but with the other items it drops
    down to the 40's. Regardless, I don't know why I plugged the recipe in twice to Beersmith and
    it spit out ...

    I'm looking to make this a relatively low bitterness, high flavor pale ale. The trouble is I'm
    having a bit of trouble deciding on my hops. Here's what I have so far:3 gallon batch3 lbs.

    Just another update on this brew. I just bottled this yesterday, and I am really excited for it
    to finish carbonating. There was a lot of trub when I racked to the bottling bucket, but I'm
    hoping that...

    So, after a bit of a brewing hiatus I finally got this into the fermenter yesterday. I ended up
    using 8 oz. of honey instead of 4, and went with Diastase enzyme for my conversion since I had
    heard tha...

    Do you seal them in any particular way, or just screw the lids on? Two weeks would probably be
    a reasonable amount to have on hand at any given time. Do you keep them refrigerated the entire
    time, or ...

  • Posted in thread: Darned white-ring in the bottle on 09-15-2012 at 02:57 AM
    I know what you mean. I accidentally over primed a batch a couple years ago, and they didn't go
    off until I started up the oven one day. As they were stored in a nearby cabinet the residual
    heat must ...

    I know there a lot of threads about when and how much coffee to add to a recipe when brewing,
    but what about just coffee by itself? My wife and I both like to cold brew our coffee, and it
    would be muc...
