  • 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!
  • Beer (obviously) and
    music. I play guitar in
    a death metal band called
    Betray the Prophet.
  • Asst. Manager at an installed insulation company

  • 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.
  • Any and all styles of ale
  • 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)rnBig Sleep (Milk Stout)

    I had some that looked exactly like that once and I determined with a powerful flashlight that
    it was a thin layer only running up the side of bottle above the normal amount of yeast.Yes, it
    looks lik...

    You wouldn't want to do that during bottling, but oxidation is a process that takes weeks or
    months. Straining gunk out of the beer as it goes into the glass is not going to kill
    anything.Good to know...

    You can also discretely pour through a strainer into the glass. What they don't see can't hurt
    them.I've always been told that that will oxidize the crap out of a beer and kill the head.
    However, I su...

    Thanks. I use a Big Mouth Bubbler, and usually the punted bottom is higher than the trub level.
    However, I dry hopped 4oz in this brew and I think that the trub + dry hop particles that
    settled after ...

    So it looks like I got a lot of hop material in my bottles of my latest IPA. When I look from a
    higher angle, it looks like it's not this thick throughout..just against the walls of the
    glass. I cold ...

    Will it assist in the chilling process? Considering I would probably be whirlpooling before and
    during chilling (I currently use an immersion chiller). Also, when I stir around the chiller,
    won't it c...

    Hello,I was talking with a friend about putting together a hop spider for my keggle (to keep
    the hop particles contained), and he suggested that I look into making a whirlpool setup
    instead. I'm not c...

    I'm in. Thanks!

    My plan was to bottle in about 3 or 4 days. I guess we'll see

  • Posted in thread: Post your infection on 07-19-2016 at 10:21 PM
    I took this 17 days after brew day when I carried the carboy to the fridge to cold crash, so
    the dry hops settled out. The little white spots were sort of grouped before the dry hop. Like
    I said, mayb...
