    Does anyone have experience brewing with an induction burner? I have access to 10g
    kettles/stock pots that would work on induction burners, but have never really heard of anybody
    using them for brewin...

    Hey guys, for those of you who own one of these gizmos, have you found them to be useful enough
    to warrant a $25-$100 investment? I'm starting to move from extract to all-grain and I'm trying
    to figur...

    Legality isn't an issue. I do a lot of catering and know better than to serve a home brew to a
    paying customer. The mere fact that money changes hands means I can't serve it. At my CSA
    however we do c...

    Thanks everyone for your opinions.What I got from this is that I should carb naturally, C02 tap
    when ready to drink. It can't maintain carbonation for very long, but if you drink it fast
    it'll be fine...

    Hey guys, I'm ready to upgrade from bottling my 5gal batches to kegging them. Anyone have
    experience with this particular model -> not, what are some good small scale kegging setups
    people have used?

    I've successfully dry herbed a BSA with home grown Lavender and Chamomile flowers (3 days in
    secondary). They were washed after picking, I dried them myself and had no problems with
    infection. Was one...

  • Posted in thread: Too much hops? Pale Ale on 02-29-2012 at 10:07 PM
    Turning this into an IPA wouldn't be too bad of an idea, most of my ingredients outside of the
    hops are conducive to American Pale Ales. I'm toying with the idea of using 1272 yeast to
    synergize with ...

  • Posted in thread: Too much hops? Pale Ale on 02-29-2012 at 09:52 PM
    So I'm about to start a 5 gal Pale Ale batch that has 1.5oz Simcoe for bittering and 2oz
    Cascade for Aroma then dry hopping with 4oz Citra and 2oz Sorachi Ace. At a a glance 9.5oz of
    hops seems like a...

  • Posted in thread: Dry Hopping For Pale Ales on 02-21-2012 at 07:01 AM
    Sorachi is a really nice hop. I've used it once or twice and it does have a strong lemon
    presence imo. Give it a shot and see what you think. Also, post your recipeI'm still pretty new
    to home brewing...

    Hey guys, I'm looking to dry hop this ale I just started and have a few whole hop flower
    strains I've got in mind and want to hear some other opinions.I'm looking to make a very
    citrusy ale and have s...
