Yea I should have been more specific. It definitely is not vinegar, just a overly sour apple
wine (I did use a wine yeast, after all). I just did not want to serve it to people because
even though I c...

Hey everyone,Last year I tried to do a very simple cider recipe on the fly and it didn't turn
out that well. It was in an older plastic bucket that I didn't use much anymore so I figured
I'd let it si...

Thanks to everyone for their responses! I thought I'd update people on what I ended up doing. I

Hey everyone,Getting ready to bottle this stout I made and 2.5 gallons of it are getting coffee

Hey everyone,At the end of November I made a very (very) basic cider and blindly took a yeast
recommendation from someone. The batch was going to be an experiment anyway, but in retrospect
the wine ye...

That's a lot of extract! Nothing wrong with it, just make sure you have some good head space

Add it to the bottling bucket. The cold brew is what I've done for the past 4 brews each w/a
different type of coffee. If you add at bottling time you can tell what the finished product
will taste lik...

Are you sure you used Triple Sec? I have been considering using it to add orange flavor to a
beer. Not very neutral- perhaps you used plain Smirnoff?Your technique is what a lot of people
use, works w...

Thanks for the feedback so far. First, I think this will be fun to try for novelty at least
because from what I've read this isn't a common practice. Secondly, I think soaking oak chips
in it will act...
