    ABOUT ME

  • 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
  • Mr. Grimm
  • Death Metal, Black Metal, Doom Metal. www.facebook.com/betraytheprophet
  • Brewtal Mitten
  • 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 am planning on bottling this weekend or next. That will give 2-3 weeks in primary. I used
    Mangrove Jack's M07 British Ale yeast, and seriously, this has been the most aggressive/active
    fermentation ...

    Yea, the guy at my LHBS did Coffee Malt rather than the pale chocolate. I'm hoping it was a
    good call

    This is all great advice, thank you everyone.

    Mid-mash and pre-runoff stirring also helped me to increase my mash efficiencies by about
    4-5%.This is something I have not been doing that has been suggested a couple times. I assumed
    that if I opene...

    So if the recipe target is 1.075 at 75%, you enter your expected d efficiency of 65%. With the
    same ingredients that will.drop your gravity below target. If you want to be true to recipe,
    you need to ...

    I am confused. Did you miss your target gravity or your target efficiency? Your target gravity
    was 1.050 at 75% efficiency but you ended up at 1.040 with 65% efficiency? As unviewtiful
    suggests, to me...

    What some of us are saying is that we heat the water much higher than 11 degrees warmer. I add
    my strike water at 175-180 degree water to my cooler (when I use a cooler). The cooler "sucks"
    out a ton ...

  • Posted in thread: Reflections On My 2nd All Grain Brew on 02-03-2016 at 01:11 PM
    Just a quick response to all the advice:-I do preheat my mash tun, and I heat my strike water
    about 11 degrees higher than my desired mash temp. By the time I add the strike water and then
    add the gra...

    I apologize for the long, rambling post, but I have a few reflections on Saturday's brew
    day..my 2nd all grain brew. Things definitely went smoother this time. I worried a lot less and
    just went with ...

    Just saw on here where the stainless steel hose clamps were getting corroded which is why I was
    thinking about doing it. Other than that, what type of hosing are people using from the barb on
    the outs...
