  • I went all grain because the kits I got from William's did not list any of the ingredients and I wanted more control. I brew once a month. IPA and Stout are my favorite styles but I have started doing a ton of lagers in the last year. --- Sept 5, 2010 First Brew Day --- April 2, 2011 First All Grain --- Dec 20, 2011, Brew Stand Built --- March 20, 2012 Kegging System Built

    How do you change your lines out?My guess is that people with long beer lines clean in place
    and rarely change their lines with new draft tubing.Same thing in commercial applications.

    Ok, i know I'm not supposed to clean my aluminum kettle to a shiny brightness. But I gave up
    the beer stone was too much.I'll probably have to boil some water in it to get it back to
    passive. BUT it w...

    dropped.Does thi...

    There are a lot of Munich malts. The one I think that most people are suggesting is Light
    Munich (9-10L). I was going to say that although it's not fashionable these days, a little 40L
    Crystal goes a ...

    Concidering how cheap dry yeast is, I wouldn't risk the other ingredients for making something

    the best f...
