  • I began brewing about 4 months ago. It started with the $60 "starter kit" from Midwest Brewing, and has since blossomed into a decent-sized home setup. We've brewed 6 batches so far, all from extract. In the future I'm excited to start digging into all-grains and kegging.

    You won't get rid of the smell and like everyone else, mine's tinted brownish/yellow after less
    than a year. I'm about ready to ditch the plastic and go all glass so I don't have to deal with
    cleaning...

    I have the Midwest Stainless Immersion Chiller and it worked well with our enamel brew kettle,
    but not quite as well with our new stainless kettle.It seemed to chill a little better when I
    would move ...

    Get new, less lame friends.Seriously! What kind of elitist, pretentious whiners are you trying
    to serve?

    Update: I racked it to secondary on Sunday and it was sitting at 1.012, which we were pleased
    with. Here's the timeline recap if you're interested:[*]Brewed June 30. OG 1.072.[*]Sat at
    73-75F for 16 d...

    Just wanted to give you guys my final take on this experiment.Overall, the brew turned out
    surprisingly good! It has the sweeter characteristics of a Hefe, with the darker/malty
    qualities of a Dunkel....

    Well, I leave for my honeymoon on Sunday (7/22) and don't get back until 7/30--do you think
    it'll be OK in the ale pale that long? This thing was brewed on 6/23, so it will have been in
    the primary bu...

    I checked it again yesterday, which was four days after moving it outside. Gravity was at 1.022
    making me feel much, much better. I'm hoping it gets down to FG soon because I'm headed out of
    town for ...

    It's been another 5 days and it's been sitting at around 74 degrees--gravity hasn't decreased
    much. It's at 1.039 (rather than maybe 1.041). I stirred some of the sediment (slowly) off of
    the bottom t...

    Wow thank you for the replies! My fiance is my brew partner (she's a serious beer gal) and she
    brought home the kit. I never bothered to look at the brew time on this and I'm guessing she
    didn't. The ...
