  • 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.

  • 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)

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

    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...

    I may just be paranoid, but I thought I spotted the start of an infection in my latest IPA. I
    dry sprinkled US-05. The krausen fell but I still had some weird bubbles and yeast rafts that
    stuck around...

    Hoppy flavors/aromas fade over time. Did you dry hop with pellets? Did you cold crash your
    secondary? Cold crashing will cause the dry hop particles to settle out with the trub. I do
    this, then I bott...

    I racked a stout to a secondary for aging and came up a little short. Couple things I found on
    here is 1) you beer will off gas and will provide some CO2 blanketing and 2) you could add a
    little bit o...

    Here's a similar thread from a few days ago. Looks like everyone pretty much agrees that the
    warmer the temp, the better hop oil extraction occurs, which leads to better aroma (which is
    what you want ...

  • Posted in thread: started secondary. Short on beer on 04-25-2016 at 11:58 AM
    Was it an extract or all-grain recipe? If extract, then you probably just didn't top up with
    enough water in your primary, and assuming you used all of the extract, your worth should have
    had a higher...

  • Posted in thread: First IPA Help on 04-21-2016 at 02:17 PM
    Leave it alone. I generally aim for 5.5 gallons going into primary from my kettle, this way it
    accounts for volume loss with trub/hop particles. In the case of extract brewing, when you
    transfer from ...

  • Posted in thread: Temp Effects on Dry Hopping on 04-21-2016 at 12:35 PM
    You will definitely get a better extraction rate at warmer temperatures. I usually dry hop at
    around 68 degrees for 4-5 days, then I cold crash for an additional 2-3 days to get the hops
    and any remai...
