  • Started reading about brewing 15 years ago. Approx. 2 years ago purchased equipment: Primary bucket, glass carboy (2ndary), 7 gal ss brew pot, bottling equipment, etc.rnrnAt this time I'm an extract brewer but would like to move on to all grain in the near future. I've brewed pale ale, cream ale, bock, irish red, fat tire clone, blue moon clone, scottish ale and steam beer.rnrnMay of 2009 I purchased kegging equipment.
  • I really like the bock and steam beers but have developed a taste for dark beers. Just did a porter and love it.

    It is hard to be patient even when you've got several batches under your belt! I've always do 1
    week in primary, 2 weeks in secondary and 3 weeks in the bottle. That final 3 weeks were

    fermentator, I did not strain out the hops (I never have for that matter) and left it in the
    primary. I checke...

    I checked the gravity this morning (Thursday, day 12) and it was at a 1.012. It is about 2
    points more than what I'd expected but it appears that S-23 did a great job. It tastes good

    Welcome to the forum. It has been a great resource for me. I get to Vegas once or twice a year.

    I've never done a starter, just added dry yeast to wort and let her go. I purchased a 1000 ml
    flask and some dry malt with an airlock. The instructions that came with the kit all use smack
    packs or li...

    I plan to brew my first lager (bock - extract kit) this weekend and I'm not exactly sure what
    the "2 stage cold fermentation" procedures are. I have an old refridgerator with a temp control
    so cold te...
