    ABOUT ME

  • Hello fellow Brewers! I have been around homebrewing for the past couple years, but finally started doing it in my own home in 2012. I currently live in Bloomington, IN where I work at Oliver Winery, the largest winery in the Eastern United States on my days off from the firehouse.

    Yeah, I wouldn't bother the bottles as they sleep either. If you really want to taste the brew
    as it ages, keg it up!Beer changes character so much as it carbonates, as it settles into it's

    The "smack pack" is essentially making a small starter -- the yeast is in there, it just needs
    time to get going. As previously stated, just gently swirl your carboy or bucket some, and let
    it be. Mak...

    Anyone else's strawberries look like this in secondary? This is after 3 days.

    So the girlfriend loves her some Stout - she also loves chocolate and amaretto. When we went to
    our LHBS we found an amaretto extract I figure we will add to secondary or to the bottling
    bucket. This ...

    I doubt a dorm fridge will fit a 5 gal bucket. Do yourself right throw a cheap Craigslist
    fridge in your garage or a buddy's garage, slap on a Johnson controls a419 temp controller and
    ferment/cold cr...

    Congrats and welcome to home brewing! It's important to "sneak" tastes from your batches. It's
    the only way you will ever figure this hobby out.

    I wouldn't wor...

    What kind of bourbon did everyone choose? I am using Jim Beam. I am sitting at 11.5 brix (1.046
    SG) after 15 days in primary. I started at 20 Brix (1.083 SG). That puts me around 8% ABV. I
    assume afte...
