  • Wheat beer is a favorite of mine. Primarily Oberon Ale, Gumballhead and Dancing Man Wheat.
  • I have had a big interest in craft beer for a few years. I have only been to one beer event because of various reasons. Hop's N Props in 2009. I had some interest in brewing but that was magnified because of a trip to New Glarus brewery in the middle of Jun '10. Since that trip I just had to homebrew.

    Temp wise, styles have recommended drinking temperatures. I usually like beer a little warmer
    than fridge temp. Fridge temp is for horse piss beer which is nice once in a while during hot

    Madison has a thriving local scene. I really like Karben 4, because they are right by my office
    (in the old Ale Asylum building). There is a new brewery in the area, whose name I can't
    remember, that ...

    $80-100 is a lot to spend on a pot. I bought this one a couple years back. Some people may tell
    you 8 gallons is a little small but it works fine for me. I use Fermcap and never boil over.

    What was the yeast and did you add any simple sugars?

    As a follow-up. I use a secondary fermentation about 95% of the time. I just consider it a part
    of the fun of brewing. It also allows me the ability to add hops and adjuncts, if necessary.
    Thanks for ...

    I get clear beer with just a primary. If you have gunk out of the primary you are probably not
    racking carefully enough.Late extract addition may or may not effect you IBU's. It's debatable
    with plent...

    I think you moved it to the secondary too soon. You don't want to move a beer out of the
    primary fermenter until it has reached it's final gravity. You didn't leave enough yeast to
    finish the fermenta...

    I don't know if I would use a pot that was used for lobsters to make beer.

    I add 0.5lb sugar for every 1lb DME after the original 6lb LME/5lb DME. No more than 1lb for
    most styles. Should dry out to around 1.010. I would go up to 2lb for a Belgian style.
