  • I started brewing in the mid 90s when my wife got me a home brewing kit for Christmas. I've brewed off and on, more off, since then. I recently returned to brewing and I'm moving to partial mash brews.

    I purchased a Best Case Belgian Farmhouse Saison kit, and while looking at the recipe, it
    strikes me that there's not enough hops to keep this in style. When I run it through the
    various calculators, ...

    I've done this quite frequently. No problems thus far. As long as you change it out after every

    Just getting into GF brewing for my wife who is celiac. What grains are people using to impart
    colour and depth of flavour? Are you roasting these at home? I can get quinoa and GF oats, and
    I may be a...

    Coopers IPA should work. Substitute 500 gm or 1lb of DME for 1/2 the sugar called for in the
    kit. Watch some of the Easy Home Brewing series from CraigTube here:

    My wife is celiac and can't drink regular beer. Yesterday she tried a Bard's and really liked
    it, so she asked me to make something similar. I was thinking of starting with a 5 litre test
    batch. I hav...

  • Posted in thread: Do you know how to make a yeast starter? Then why not farm yeast and freeze it? on 03-10-2013 at 04:47 PM
    I found these tubes which look like the ones WL uses to supply their yeast. Would they
    withstand the pressure cooker sterilization process? I think so, but someone with more
    experience might have a di...

    Liquid yeast is stupid expensive where I live... $12.99 pk for Wyeast. So today I'm at my LHBS
    and I see it on for $8.00 pk. I'd like to get 2 or 3 types and divide them out for freezing to
    drive down...

    Most likely you're smelling hydrogen sulfide (H2S) which the yeast produce when under stress.
    Probably from too few nutrients in the wort. I should be OK, although it could take months of
    lagering to ...

  • Posted in thread: Gelatin - what am I doing wrong? on 03-07-2013 at 08:56 PM
    I just did a gelatin clear the other day on my Irish Red Ale. My Keurig coffee maker dispenses
    hot water at 165F. I took 8oz and let it sit for 5 minutes. I then took one pack of Knox and
    vigorously s...
