  • Started extract brewing back in the early 90's, from a startup kit at a LHBS. Been wanting to go AG for years, and finally jumped in with both feet in April 2009. Bought a 10 gal. boil kettle and converted a 10 gal. Igloo orange cooler with a false bottom for my mash tun. Been brewing an AG brew every month, and loving the new results. Recently upgraded again to a brewstand and 10-gal batches!

    Looks delicious!My only question is about using the Summit hops at flame-out as opposed to
    using them for bittering. Its a high-alpha, low-cohumulone hop .. and you have so much good
    flavor combos goi...

    Buckwheat honey is known for a strong flavor. Although I've not tried it myself, the reports
    make me think it may be too 'out there' for your brew... unless you really want to go crazy!
    :)If you alrea...

    B-Brite is an oxygen based cleaner. I looked around and most of them do recommend to rinse
    after use, although One Step says it is non-toxic and leaves no residue.There is a thread here
    on rinse vs. n...

    Thanks for the suggestion DeathBrewer. I had not thought about that aspect of the dried
    hibiscus flowers.To check it out, I measured out 4g of flowers for 4oz cup (approx. strength of
    suggested 4.4 oz...

  • Posted in thread: Amount of hops to use on 03-04-2015 at 07:24 AM
    Those lighter beers do not need a lot of hops at all. I see that the BJCP guide for Light
    Lagers is 8-12 IBU ... which sounds good to me! :)The boil time is used to isomerize
    alpha-acids in hops to cr...

  • Posted in thread: Liquid Yeast Beers Always Seem a Bit... Well, Not as Good as Dried Yeast on 03-04-2015 at 06:56 AM
    Interesting thread with lots of great comments!Initially, I would just assume that dry or
    liquid yeast would not make a big difference. How you take those delivery mediums and turn them
    into 'happy he...

    I posted my gruit recipe here on HBT. It should also be under my name in the
    drop-down..Wormwood is an insanely bitter herb, so a little goes a long way. It is a different
    kind of bitter than hops. It...
