  • I got into home brewing as a new hobby. I am known for making Green Dragon, but wanted to get known for making something a little more socially acceptable. Brewing is awesome. I bought a huge outdoor burner and some great containers as well as a kegerator and associated items. I have had success with 2 brews so far, but have 3 new batches 'processing'. 15 gallon of beer for spring will be welcome as I have run out of home brew currently :P
    I usually keg, but I also bottle in liter bottles sometimes.

    I don't make many beers that are better aged. I make mostly American ambers, APAs, and IPAs.
    They're all really good in 2-3 weeks, generally.At this moment, I'm drinking an IPA that was
    made on 10/21 ...

    Sounds like fermentation issues to me, not green beer. What yeast, what temp, and how did you
    control temp?So I guess this post was more about my results than about the show. That just what
    got me thi...

    So I was watching the new Brew Masters show on TV and they were talking about how long it takes
    to make a beer from start to finish. For regular strength beers, it takes them around 2 to 3
    weeks. High...

  • Posted in thread: Secondary Fermenter Question on 11-10-2010 at 08:06 PM
    Go the full two weeks. The yeast will clean up after itself and you may get a better beer as a
    result. Also, as many have said on here, if you smelling something weird, that means the smell
    or compoun...

    nice! It is truely amazing how the beer changes with time. In even as little as a week the beer
    can take on big changes! Waiting is so hard, but so worth it! I wait a minimum of 8 weeks for
    my beers n...

    It hasn't even been 3 weeks since your brew day. In my experience (less than 1 year of brewing
    so far, but about 10 or 12 batches so far) beer is very 'green' for the first 6 weeks. Meaning,
    alcohol n...

  • Posted in thread: How and how long to cold crash for bottling? on 11-10-2010 at 06:35 PM
    You may not need to cold crash that style of beer. In my opinion, I like unfiltered wheat beer
    cloudy. Also like the previous poster said, just bottle and condition around 68-70 degrees or
    so for a co...

    looks like your all set. Just be sure to sanitize sanitize sanitize! Get that liquid starsan
    stuff. go ahead and get a big bottle, cause when you start brewing you will probably be doing
    it a lot!Good...

  • Posted in thread: Whirlfloc - what a difference! on 11-10-2010 at 06:25 PM
    I got talked into using irish moss or Whirlfloc by the folks at my brew store, and wow what a
    difference. If you haven't used any clarity aids like these before, you should give them a try.
