  • I live in Lansing, MI with my fiance, our dog and 2 cats. I attended the University of Michigan and received a B.A. in Psychology. I have no idea when/how I am going to use that degree. I am spoiled in Michigan with great breweries such as Bells, Founders, Dark Horse, Shorts, New Holland, Oddside, Arcadia, and many many more. I am trying to get into a little trading, so if you're ever interested in trading for some Mibeer, pm me and we can work something out. Hail the Great Beer State!

  • My older brother has been brewing for years and I have been wanting to get into it since he started. Currently I brew 5 gallons at a time. I am working on building a cooler mash tun to go all-grain. I prefer ales rather than lagers. I have brewed several IPAs, a double IPA, a hoppy American stout, a milk stout, a pumpkin porter, and an American Strong ale.
  • Initially I want to focus on pale ales and IPAs, and eventually strong ales and DIPAs. I would love to attempt some of my favorites, such as Lagunitas Sucks, The Alchemist Heady Topper, Three Floyds Zombie Dust, and Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree.
  • Left Hand Milk Stout clone
  • Hoppy American Stout (Summoner), Hop Hammer IPA, Simcoe/Amarillo IPA (Holy Diver), Galaxy/Warrior IPA (Star Lord), Bell's Two Hearted Clone (Fish Ladder), Pumpkin Spice Porter, American Strong Ale (The Gargoyle)

    You will get different answers from different people about this. Some say to go by gravity
    readings, not the calendar. Many people try to go from grain to glass as quick as possible and
    will preach to...

    I'm putting together a recipe for an India Red Ale..any thoughts on what I have so far? I'm
    thinking I may be a bit heavy on the Crystal, but that seems to be the go-to for extract red
    ales.Estimated ...

    if it got that warm on day 8 I think youll be fine, post your resultsAgreed. 8 days in should
    be close to reaching full attenuation, if it hasn't already. You may get a little off flavor,
    but I doubt ...

    Highly recommend staying away from the Mangrove Jacks M44. Very long lag time and even when
    fermented at 65 degrees it is not very clean. I got some banana and clove esters almost heffe

    My approach to this would be to pick a recipe that you are already somewhat familiar with.
    Maybe a commercial IPA clone. Pick one with hop flavors and aromas that you're familiar with.
    This way, the o...

    If it is phosphate free it obviously isn't trisodium phosphate but rather some other alkaline
    cleaner like sodium carbonate, sodium sesquicarbonate or sodium meta silicate. TSP PF is
    apparently a mix ...

    First things first, what yeast strain was used? What style of beer are you making? If your
    ambient temp swings that much, I'm not sure that a water bath will help at all. You want
    stable, consistent t...

    Some commercial breweries filter their beers to make it clear and sediment-free, which can
    strip the beer of a lot of its flavor and character. A lot of commercial breweries do not
    filter their beers....
