    I brewed Christmas Ale a few years ago with cloves. It took just over a year for it mellow. On

    I have a question about my first brew. Do I have to boil the extract and water and everything?
    How a bout the yeast?hahaI guess just enter me in the drawing, thanks!

    Hmmm, sometimes there is very little activity in the starter, has the gravity moved? I couldn't

    Dry Hopping is the primary reason for the big hop nose. Late additions (flame out) help out a
    bit, but primarily it's the dry hopping with fresh hops

  • Posted in thread: Dry-hopping question x3 on 01-10-2010 at 01:49 AM
    Generally, I dry-hop for 7-10 days at most and discard the spent hops. I'm sure they might be

    new and go wi...

Nice jet. My mom got her pilot's license when she was 16 and I have two uncles that still fly their plane (not sure but it seats 6 and has a prop). Both my grandfathers were pilots. Mom's dad owned a plane until he, my grandmother, and young uncle died in it before I was born. My dad's father was a B-17 pilot at the end of the German daylight bombing raids and never flew again after the war. I loves me some planes :). Good to meet you and glad you're a brewer too.
