  • I live in Seattle, in a 1-bedroom apartment, which makes all-grain'in pretty difficult. Nonetheless I've managed to work it out. Pretty basic setup, cooler MLT, the beginners brewery you know. Definitely open for any suggestions or comments.

  • My girlfriend decided to buy me a Mr. Beer for my 21st birthday, but because she's a few months younger than me, wasn't old enough to buy it at Target. Ridiculous. That not withstanding, she opened my eyes to a magical world and I owe my new found passion to her. I've been through the extract phase, the specialty grain phase, the mini mash stage (a most annoying phase), and am now onto all-grain.

  • Posted in thread: Best Beer You've Ever Brewed on 03-13-2011 at 05:41 AM
    There's a local competition coming up, and I'm sort of stumped as to what I want to brew. I was
    thinking something along the lines of a blue moon clone maybe. Perhaps my homebrew brethren can
    help me?...

  • Posted in thread: Attempt 2 for advice on brown sugar on 01-24-2011 at 08:29 AM
    Ok, thanks for the advice. So instead of using fresh apples I'd use just a standard, like,
    treetop apple cider type of a deal? Throw that in the boil for 15 minutes or so? From what I've
    read I think ...

    I posted an idea for a new "big" beer earlier this week and didn't get any responses, so I will
    rephrase the question.I want to do a beer that's between 12 and 15% ABV, using apple, cinnamon,

    Soak them in ammonia and water for at least an hour. The labels will literally fall off. No

    Hey I have never used brown sugar in any beers but I know it is used sometimes, and I'm
    curious. Here's a rough outline of what I'm thinking:6# 2 row1# dark grain (chocolate/black

  • Posted in thread: Anyone use this brew pot? on 12-28-2010 at 09:44 PM
    Yeah, you're right. If you want to do, for instance, cornelius keg sized batches, then a 9
    gallon boil kettle is more than enough. If you can find a kettle for relatively close to the
    same price with ...

  • Posted in thread: Is my yeast still good? on 12-28-2010 at 09:42 PM
    Hmm...well. Then definitely do a starter a couple days before brewing to make sure the yeast is
    active. If it's an ale yeast, I certainly wouldn't worry too awfully much about it, but if it's
    a lager ...
