  • Got into homebrewing by accident. I loved microbrews and the rich full flavor most had, a clerk at the local liquor shop told me one day I should try making my own. So I did.

    I am only on my first batch, so my equipment is limited.

    Primary/Fermenter: Irish Red Ale (bottling on 2/8)

    Planning: 2 secondaries to hold a Cream Stout and Honey Amber Ale

    Brilliant! If you give it another try, maybe make the PB part in advance by making a PB tea and
    decanting the oils off, then all you would be left with is the PB liquid and none of the peanut

    If you added it to the bottling vessel, then you are okay. I've done this as well and it turned
    out just fine.But for future brews, you probably shouldn't boil the corn sugar. If you boil the
    sugar it...

    This is for an Extra Pale Ale? Get yourself a Muslin or Nylon (easier to clean) bag and throw
    1-2 ounces of hops into it. Tie it shut and tie some string (or fishing line) to the bag and
    throw it in t...

    Just so happens that I have said BYO here at work. To convert any size recipe to any other

  • Posted in thread: Another fruit beer fermentation question on 08-16-2007 at 06:54 PM
    I thought I read somewhere not to leave the beer on fruit for any longer than 7 days. If you
    want additional flavoring rack to a tertiary and add fruit to it. But you should always rack to
    another car...

    I want this sooo bad. Well, anything Stone right now would be nice as its not available here in
    MO. I think I may order a large batch of Stone and grab a couple bottles of this with the
    order. It was ...

    welcome back! If you are going to go all grain, maybe start with a pale ale or an IPA. Easy
    enough and hard to mess up, especially the IPA if you are a hophead.A stout is in my future.
    Then an Impy st...

    I get some of mine from a pub here in town, they let me take home the ones I drink and
    sometimes will bring me full six packs with empties in them. Usually I get to take home some
    unique empties and c...

  • Posted in thread: Got to get a new bucket.... on 06-26-2007 at 01:10 PM
    The only thing I would be worried about is the chemical breakdown of the bucket. Sometimes when
    certain plastics get heated like yours they can start to give off residues. Once the plastic
    cools those...

    Stone is available in Indy too isn't it? Yep, it is. You don't like bitter beers, what about
    hoppy beers? Try Stone IPA or the smoked porter.
