  • Posted in thread: Bend Oregon 10 Barrel Brewing has issued a recall on 07-31-2014 at 11:56 PM
    Not really a recall if they're not offering a replacement or money back. More of a "we effed
    up, better luck next time".Kind of crummy, actually.Yeah, I was surprised they're telling
    people to throw o...

  • Posted in thread: What alternatives to Northern Brewer and Midwest Supply are out there? on 07-30-2014 at 09:06 PM
    I've found Austin to be a great retailer to work with. I also have to highly recommend
    Farmhouse Brewing Supply. I usually only buy bulk hops from them since my LHBS has most of what
    I need, but I bel...

    I add a single drop to starters and I can get a rolling boil going in my flask with zero chance

  • Posted in thread: This Place is Like WebMD for Yeast on 07-27-2014 at 05:00 PM

    You need to weed out all the,, "I pitched my yeast 2 hours ago and the airlock isn't doing
    anything, should I dump the batch?!!!" threads when searching for anything. Also all the, "Does

    Did you really get from 1.163 down to 1.015 with Trappist High Gravity? What size was the
    starter? Is that yeast even tolerant to 20% abv?

  • Posted in thread: What's the worst craft brew (commercial) you've had? on 07-23-2014 at 04:07 PM
    Last night I tried Heretic BC's Evil Cousin for the first time. I wouldn't necessarily call it
    the worst beer I've ever had, but man, what a terrible IIPA. It was an absolute caramel bomb. I
    double ch...

  • Posted in thread: If you are pressed for time, why do you homebrew? on 07-21-2014 at 06:12 PM
    Because there is a big difference in spending time to do something right and wasting time, but
    where that line is drawn is also different for each brewer.IMO though a lot of homebrewers
    could benefit ...
