    I would be interested in this if you still are!

    Hey everyone! I just wanted to drop in and let you all know I'm working on launching a web
    application dedicated to craft beer trading called The Beer Exchange. It comes complete with
    custom designed ...

    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
    had originally added about 5 oz. of fine ground coffee into a container and covered with vodka.
    I let it...

    Hey everyone,Getting ready to bottle this stout I made and 2.5 gallons of it are getting coffee
    added. I cold steeped a bunch of coffee grounds of a couple different coffees and it only
    yielded 1 flui...

  • Posted in thread: Bad Cider Batch: Re-ferment with a new yeast? on 01-26-2013 at 03:08 PM
    I see what you're saying about time, but I still feel like the flavor profile is mainly due to
    the wine yeast. So yea, it will change, but will still be the same in general. Also, I was
    hoping to not ...

    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...

  • Posted in thread: Imperial Milk Stout recipe idea on 01-24-2013 at 12:27 AM
    That's a lot of extract! Nothing wrong with it, just make sure you have some good head space
    and a solid blowoff tube. I did a stout with 11 pounds of DME and it was going nuts in my 6.5
    gallon glass ...

    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...
