  • Posted in thread: Time Efficient Brewing on 11-26-2012 at 09:33 PM
    I have cut my time to about 5 hours. That is from turning on the heat to begin my strike water,
    to putting the last item away at cleanup. I try to multi-task as much as possible. I also like
    to start ...

    Remember those bitter beer face commercials?I was outside boiling the other day. My Keggle was
    on my burner, outside temp in the low 40's, steam rolling out of the kettle. My neighbor across

    Sam Adams Winter Sampler from Sam's Club (need bottles). Really liking the Holiday Porter and

    I just went to AG and boiled my first batch last weekend. I bought a Bayou Classic burner from

    buck. I conve...

    Thanks for the reply. I pulled the preboil sample off the top of the brew kettle. That would

    I finally did my first AG today. Not much different than extract...the old cliche.."should have
    started sooner." Anyhow I have a question on my O.G. I brewed a simple English Bitter. Grain
    bill was 8 ...

  • Posted in thread: Secondary fermentation and active yeast left on 09-03-2012 at 08:21 PM
    I am looking to brew an old ale and age it over oak chips in my secondary fermenter. My
    question is how long can I leave it in there and still have enough active yeast to properly
    carbonate it in the ...
